New Self-Cleaning Irrigation Filter

Forsta Filters has released the M-90 automatic water filter. At less than 12 inches tall, it can incorporate into nearly any piping system. Automatic backwash allows the filter to clean itself as needed and requires almost no routine maintenance. A stainless steel body, screen and components are standard.

The M-90 has a flow capacity as much as 100 GPM and screen mesh available to 5 micron.

It uses a single 1-inch flush valve and uses less than 2 gallons in the six-second backwash cycle.

Rack It Up

Highway Products, Inc. has introduced its latest Double XX Headache Rack for pickups. It’s a super-duty ring-style rack with diamond plate covers for added strength for pickup restylers. This unit is black powder-coated, but it’s also available in a number of other finishes, including different colors, mill-finish, aluminum, unpainted and polished aluminum diamond plate, or the ultimate, mirror finish polished stainless steel covers.

New High-Clearance Sprayer

Hagie Mfg. Co. has introduced its new STX10 high-clearance sprayer. Composite body panels cover the exterior of the machine, directing engine airflow and allowing the engine, located at the back of the machine, to take air in through the top of the hood. The boom pivot is located under the cab rather than the boom transom. By locating the pivot at the machine, the amount of moving parts on the booms is also reduced, increasing viability. The newly designed booms integrate a routing channel in the upper boom support, reducing the amount of hoses and wires and increasing visibility.

It is equipped with a 240 hp, 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine and uses a Sauer-Danfoss H1 series hydrostatic twin pump to supply the power to the full-time four-wheel drive system. The STX10 is equipped with independent automatically adjusting air-ride suspension.

Employees can quickly access their current and previous pay information from any computer that has a connection to the Web. Also, by publishing pay advice information online, employers save time and money by reducing paper waste and decrease the costs associated with mailing paychecks and direct deposit advices.
