The KisCutter is Turfco's newest sod cutter. The KisCutter weighs 140 pounds and its handles fold down for easy transport or storage. Ideal for the novice or professional landscaper, the KisCutter can be used for a variety of applications, such as sculpting lawns and flowerbeds and trimming ball fields. A centrifugal clutch, friction drive to the wheels and variable speed make starting and stopping, corners and curves easy to maneuver. The KisCutter cuts up to 9,000 square feet per hour and has an adjustable cutting depth and one handle operation.
Tim Lewis, owner of Red-E-Rentals in Costa Mesa, Calif., says the KisCutter is a popular item in his store. “The KisCutter immediately became the first choice for rental when our customers came in for a sod cutter,” says Lewis. “It was out at least five days a week for the first three months we had it.” His manager told Lewis they needed to get another one, so they bought another KisCutter later that spring. Now, Lewis says he's planning to dump their older sod cutters in favor of the Turfco machines.

The BedShaper from LittleWonder can cut clean edges and borders in lawns, gardens, golf courses and athletic fields at up to 100 feet per minute. Cutting depths from .5 to 4.5 inches are controlled by a seven-position gauge wheel. The notched blade slices through the soil and turf to create an edge guaranteed against chipping, breaking, bending and delaminating. When the notched blade contacts a rock or tree root, the patented BladeFloat lets the arm “float” over the obstruction while the blade continues to cut.
Mike Grubbs of Landscape Maintenance Services in Cranbury, N.J., likes the machine because it works well in tight places. “The BedShaper does a better job than any of the competitors,” Grubbs says. “It does the nice tight beds. It seems to cut it in an efficient amount of time. We're very happy with the machine.”

The MC350 Landscape Curbilder is designed to place decorative landscape curbing and smaller commercial curbing. A 6-inch reciprocating plunger powered by a 3-hp Honda engine pushes the curb mix from the hopper into the curb form. Curb forms are reversible within the plunger housing so either left- or right-hand curbing can be placed with the same form. A drop pointer is standard to ensure straight and level curbing. A level indicator, emergency stop switch, hour meter and operator's manual tube are located on the console. The spring tensioned height adjustment handles won't vibrate so the height adjustment stays constant.
