John Deere scrap grabble bucket

John Deere expands grapple attachments

Continuing to expand its offering of jobsite cleanup solutions, John Deere is introducing the new GS66B, GS72B, GS78B and GS84B scrap grapple buckets and GR72B and GR84B rock grapple buckets into its line of Worksite Pro attachments.

The scrap grapple buckets are ideal for scrap handling, recycling center use, disaster cleanup and jobsite cleanup applications where grappling power is needed to handle material. The rock grapple buckets are perfect for land clearing, jobsite cleanup and brush removal applications. Additionally, the new rock grapples allow for grading the site after debris removal.

Each unit includes two independent-action grapples that allow different-sized objects to be picked up in each grapple. A 620-milimeter (24.4-inch) wide grapple arm and a grapple stance width of 1,540 milimeters (60.6 inches) on the GS66 and GS72/GR72 and 1,660 milimeters (65.3 inches) on the GS78 and GS84/GR84 units allow for easier grappling of wide, difficult material. For scrap applications where containing the material is necessary, bolt-on side plates are available. The scrap grapple models also feature convenient predrilled cutting edges for optional bolt-on, replaceable edges.

Senninger Dynamic Drive low pressure

Senninger releases LDN Dynamic Drive

Senninger announced the release of the LDN Dynamic Drive, which brings an expansive pressure range of 6 to 50 psi (0.41 to 3.44 bar) and their widest diameter of coverage to top-of-pipe irrigation.

Built on the LDN sprinkler platform, the Dynamic Drive features easy-to-clean UP3 nozzles and a modular design that makes maintenance easier and more economical. This versatile design lets growers change the sprinkler's deflector and extend the product's life by replacing the primary wear components.

Its advanced brake technology, used since 2002 in the company’s solid set product line, offers the optimum control and consistency needed for a wide, uniform application.

Available in two models based on desired pressure, it is available in a high-pressure model and a low-pressure model. Both models feature a complete nozzle range spanning from a #6 nozzle up to a #26 nozzle. That means growers can install one sprinkler model and one pressure regulator model across an entire machine, depending on their selected operating pressure.
