Polaris Introduces Heavy Duty Parts

Polaris Introduces Heavy Duty Parts: Everybody and every ride is different, and for those who ride in extreme conditions; conditions that are even tougher and more demanding on the vehicle, Polaris introduces its Heavy Duty Parts Program: a collection of parts that have been engineered to deliver the best driving experience possible, no matter how extreme it may be.

The Heavy Duty (HD) parts expand the boundaries of Polaris riders by helping to tackle heavy payloads, extreme cold, extreme heat and much more. The HD Parts program offers HD Brake Pads, HD Drive Belts, HD Oil Filters and HD Bearings that feature triple sealing to keep out water dust and mud making them last much longer in the extreme, as well as HD Bushings that are made of a stronger material compound to enhance the wear characteristics.

Dario Baraggia, PG&A Manager at Polaris Off-Road Vehicles EMEA said “Our Heavy Duty Parts have been developed and tested to ensure riders get the most out of their rides, taking the passion of the riders, workers and outdoor enthusiasts to the next level.”

HEAVY-DUTY BRAKE PADS

Polaris Parts introduces four new, tough handling, brake pad options. Available in sets of two pads and designed to provide a premium braking performance, riders can trust the brake pads will tackle severe mud riding, operate under extreme payload and aggressive towing. The Heavy Duty options also have an increased pad density that lasts three times longer in harsh muddy and wet conditions and a high friction capacity resulting in less effort and shorter stopping distances. The HD Brake Pads offer quiet breaking through a noise insulator which also helps to prevent squealing in all extreme conditions.

HEAVY-DUTY DRIVE BELTS

Purposely built for Heavy-Duty customers, the new Heavy-Duty Drive Belts will fit over two million Polaris Off-Road Vehicles including the Sportsman 500s, RGR 1000s, RZR XP 1000s and more. Developed in collaboration with Powertrain and clutch engineers to ensure 100% customer confidence in maximising the performance and ultimate durability of the ride. The HD Drive Belt is made from an enhanced rubber material compound that will keep the belt cool in extreme conditions and a patent cord treatment process that maximises the transfer of horsepower to the ground to help hauling heavy loads; extreme riders are now unstoppable.

HEAVY-DUTY OIL FILTER

Engineered to keep oil clean with a robust housing and steel tube centre, the Heavy-Duty Oil Filter has been designed to resist vibration and high temperatures under extreme riding conditions. With advanced synthetic material the HD Oil Filter is built to give the highest debris holding capacity, maintain oil flow and maximise performance. The Heavy-Duty oil filters will not deform under duress from the harsh and extreme conditions. The three new Heavy-Duty Oil Filters will fit over two million Polaris Off-Road Vehicles.

Makita introduces new 12VMAX

Makita introduces new 12VMAX: Among a series of new product launches, Makita has added two 12Vmax CXT multi-line lasers to its extensive range of site equipment. The multi-line lasers project one horizontal and two vertical 360° lines and include a precise self-levelling feature to enable simple setup, layout and alignment.

The 12Vmax CXT Red Multi-Line Laser (SK700DZ) and 12Vmax CXT Green Multi-Line Laser (SK700GDZ) are versatile and durable with a range of features to make work on site as simple as possible. The Red Multi-Line Laser has a range of 25 metres in each direction (50 m diameter) while the green lasers of the SK700GDZ provide an increased range of 35m (70m diameter) and better line visibility in brighter conditions. The robust units are IP54 (dust and splash water) rated, have an operating temperature range of -10 to 50 ºC and feature a ¼ inch tripod thread for easy mounting.

Each vertical and horizontal laser emitter on the tool projects four lines to create up to three 360-degree laser lines. Depending on what is required, users can choose various combinations of the laser lines in addition to the full three line configuration. Single horizontal or vertical lines, vertical and horizontal combined or both vertical lines (front to back and side to side) are available. It also includes three brightness settings for optimum visibility depending on the environment.

The multi-line laser units feature a rotary base with eccentric rotation mechanism, which reduces set up time, by enabling the laser body to rotate without changing the position of the defined plumb point. With a dial for fine adjustment, the vertical laser lines can also rotate around the defined plumb point by up to 10° left and right.

In addition, the pendulum operated self-levelling system, which is accurate to ± 4º, makes it simple to ensure the lasers are level, even on uneven ground. The units also feature a pendulum lock where self-levelling is not required and to protect the laser when in transit.

Part of the Makita CXT platform, the compact 12Vmax batteries used in the multi-line lasers provide excellent runtimes, with up to 22 and 14 hours from a 4.0ah battery for the new red and green multi-line lasers respectively.

The operational range of both multi-line lasers can be increased to 70 metres (140m diameter) with the use of the Makita LDX1 Line Laser Receiver Set (sold separately), which also enables effective, accurate use of the laser line in bright natural light.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK said: “The new 12Vmax CXT Multi-Line Lasers have been designed for use on a range of site layout, first- and second-fix tasks. The multi-line configuration and self-levelling mechanism makes it simple to align and layout everything from doors and windows, floors, pipework and electrical installations to tiling, lighting and kitchen and bathroom installations.”

Ferris® Introduces IS®6200

Ferris® Introduces IS®6200: Ferris®  introduces the IS®6200 commercial zero-turn mower that uses the latest EU Stage 5 emission technology in combination with unique mowing technology to provide commercial cutters with superior performance, quality and comfort. The all new IS®6200 has all it needs to impress even the most demanding professional cutter.

Zero Turn mowers have come a long way in 20 years. Nowadays they are bigger and faster and they put more stress on their operators. After 18 years it was time to update our flagship mower, the IS®5100Z. With the development of its successor we kept building our old flagship mower in mind. We used our worldwide facilities to take the trails further. So rather than rest on the many laurels we went full-out bringing it up to date and even beyond. It is a powerhouse evolved directly from the IS®5100Z, adding 41% (!) more engine power with stunning performance and unshakeable endurance that will set the pace for many years to come.

Jacobsen introduces the Eclipse 360 ELiTE

Jacobsen introduces the Eclipse 360 ELiTE: The new Eclipse 360 ELiTE from Jacobsen has been designed to combine the next generation of ELiTE lithium-ion batteries with a signature cut that has been trusted for a century.

ELiTE batteries have powered E-Z-GO vehicles for over 15 million hours, and that technology has been adopted by the E360 ELiTE to make a mower that can cut 50+ large greens on a single charge.

Noise during operation is reduced to virtual silence, meaning the machine can be used to cut anywhere early in the morning without disruption. The significant reduction in noise pollution is combined with zero air pollution with the all-electric model, while fuel consumption is reduced when cutting with the diesel hybrid.

Jacobsen has a decade’s worth of experience with the Eclipse range, and that has been reflected in the features of this new machine. The Patented Frequency of Clip Control ensures a consistent cut every time by linking the reel speed to the forward speed. By having the reels turning in time with the wheels you’re able to keep a consistent frequency of cut regardless of who is mowing, but still have the option to increase it without reducing the mowing speed. This control is taken further with individual unit control that can adapt the cutting configuration to vary wheel runs and truly eliminate triplex ring.

Attention has also been paid to the access and maintenance aspects of the machine. A swing-out centre unit has been added for quick and easy cleaning, maintenance or swapping the unit. No tools are required to swing the unit out with the removal of a lynchpin that is then used to hold the unit in the swung-out position all that is needed.

All of these changes were made following a 360-durability review that has also included the addition of new brushless lift actuators that have ten times the lifespan of the previous option.

Seven, nine, eleven or fifteen blade reels are available for the E360 ELiTE to allow for varied applications of the machine from golf greens and tees to football pitches and ornamental gardens.
