The improvements includes increased blade life and operator comfort

| January 8, 2013

LEE’S SUMMIT Mo.— Billy Goat Industry’s newly enhanced OS901SPS includes a new blade design that reduces thatch and improves blade life due to its sharpened leading edge and attack angle combined with a new foot actuated height adjust that raises and lowers the reel effortlessly and provides more blade depth.

The Billy Goat OS901SPS is hydrostatically self-propelled to reduce fatigue associated with pushing and features best in class, intuitive right and left operator drive controls. The unit is 22” wide with an exclusive 11 blade “floating head” cutting system that maintains contact with the contours of uneven ground, increasing seed-to-soil contact and improving germination rates.

An exclusive Auto Drop system automatically starts and stops seed drop with bale engagement and disengagement, conserving seed and preventing end-of-run seed piling. The unit comes standard with a 30-lb seed box with excellent visibility from the operator’s position and is generously elevated above the turf to eliminate clogging.

Conversion kits are available to retro-fit the OS900SPS series with the new enhancements. Visit www.billygoat.com for more information
