TurfEx develops spreader/sprayer with electric features

TurfEx introduces the RS7200E spreader/sprayer with advanced features to maximize the efficiency of lawn care professionals. The new unit boasts an electric start, adjustable electric spray pump, and a hand-held spray wand.

The RS7200E is driven by a 7-horsepower Subaru EX210 engine with electric start and a 0.95-gallon fuel tank. Its heavy-duty transmission has two forward gears, neutral and reverse. A hand-operated transmission disc brake and foot-controlled sulky band brake allow smooth, confident operation of the unit, and the machine’s low center of gravity further increases the safety of the RS7200E.

A 17-gallon tank system has a single port for easy filling and a balanced design for enhanced stability. To apply the liquid, the RS7200E includes a front-mounted boomless nozzle, which can spray between 3 and 11 feet wide, as well as a professional-duty spray wand. The unit’s electric pump can be turned on while the engine isn’t running, allowing the operator to spot spray using only battery power. An optional front-mounted boom can also be installed on the machine within a few minutes. When attached, the boom wings can be folded for travelling through fence gates and other confined areas, and they include spring-activated tripping mechanisms to help prevent damage if the boom strikes an obstacle.

The hopper of the RS7200E holds up to 150 pounds, or 3 cubic feet, of material, which can be spread up to 11 feet wide by the 12-inch polyethylene spinner. A calibration key is provided to set the locking gate for consistent, accurate application of granular material.

Ergonomic fingertip controls allow the operator to easily manage the functions of the RS7200E. A pressure gauge, liquid level gauge, digital tachometer and lubrication indicator come standard to verify the status of the machine. A kill switch is also provided for emergency stopping.

Designed for minimum maintenance, the RS7200E is constructed from corrosion-resistant materials and contains unique protective shrouding to prevent material build-up and rust. Additionally, there are few moving parts and cables to service, and the engine is easily accessible.

Other standard features include knobby-tread front tires, rear turf tires, a double-bearing sulky pivot, side deflector and extra nozzles. The RS7200E is backed by a two-year limited warranty, and the engine comes with a five-year warranty.
