Altoz XC zero-turn mowers
The 2014 Altoz XC Series of zero-turn mowers is the flagship line from a new brand of mowers crafted by an experienced team of engineers and lawn care industry professionals. They can reach speeds of 19 mph. The tapered roller bearings in the front casters are the same ones used in the automotive industry. Deck spindles feature massive cast-aluminum housings for optimal cooling and permanently sealed bearings with machined surfaces for extra durability. Booth 11086.


The CS-590 Timber wolf is ECHO’s entry into the popular 55-60cc semi-pro chain saw segment.  It is targeted to the large landowner, farmer, rancher, and firewood cutter, and has many commercial features at a great price.  Booth: 5184


iQ Dust Control Power Cutter
The PC912 is a hand-held, gas-powered 12-inch concrete and masonry cut off saw with an integrated dust collection system. Used properly it’s capable of dry-cutting concrete and masonry materials while eliminating dust and wet-cutting problems. An integrated vacuum collects silica dust at the cutting point, the iQ Quick Spin filtration system captures dust, while the filtration system feeds into the dust containment chamber. Booth 4228.


This ride-on spreader is powered by a 6 hp (190cc) Subaru EA190 engine. Hydrostatic Transmission with forward and reverse levers also features a speed control lockout to maintain a constant 3.5 mph speed during application. Over-sized front and rear tires increase stability and provide easier applications in taller, thicker, rougher turf. The unit features an easily accessible parking brake and tie-down hooks for secure transportation. It covers more than 100,000 sq. ft. in production per hour and has 125 lb. capacity hopper. Booth 3138.

LESCO Renovator2 20
The LESCO Renovator2 20 is a single-pass seeder, slicer and dethatcher. Forward and reverse handgrips engage the hydrostatic transmission, allowing the operator to adjust speed of travel without decreasing power to the blades. It’s powered by a 9 hp (265cc) Subaru EX270 engine with counterbalance to reduce vibration. All-new oil drain extension hose makes changing oil clean and simple. Hydrostatic Transmission allows speed to vary from 0-2 mph without adjusting engine and blade speed. Booth 3138.
