John Deere

John Deere's 300 Series skid-steer loaders are designed with a low center of gravity to increase stability, which results in faster speeds and quicker cycle times. A long wheelbase provides a smoother ride with less fore-to-aft rocking. A patented vertical-lift boom provides a true vertical lift pattern, ensuring the machine remains stable when lifting heavy palletized loads from flat beds.

Stuart Muche, owner of Stuart's Landscaping, Fond du Lac, Wis., uses John Deere skid-steer loaders because of their safety features. “An operator can't just jump in the machine and take off,” Muche says. “And if they unlatch the seat belt, leave the seat or shut down the engine, the brake is applied automatically.”

Merry Commercial blowers from MacKissic are designed for either commercial or residential applications.

A kickable discharge diverts the angle of discharge from side to front and/or up and down.

The new Model HB20 SideWinder offers a pivot-action base, allowing the operator to keep the wheelbase stationary while using a smooth gliding motion back and forth to grind stumps. The user can position the HB20 in close proximity to the stump, release the pivot pin, and simply swing the handlebars from side to side. Traditional handlebar units require additional effort from the operator to reposition the entire machine, including the undercarriage, especially on uneven terrain.
