Bobcat Three-Point Tillers
A new line of Bobcat three-point tillers is available for use with compact tractors and Toolcat 5610 utility work machines. Three new models have working widths of 43, 55 and 67 in. and an adjustable tilling depth up to 5 in. Tiller implements for compact tractors and Toolcat machines are gear-driven, allowing them to provide an efficient method to break ground, prepare soil for planting, amend soil with fertilizer, manure or mulch and remove weeds between tree rows. The tillers are equipped with slip-clutch protection to prevent driveline damage in case the rotor system becomes bound or jammed. The tines of the tiller rotate in the opposite direction as the tires when the tractor or Toolcat 5610 is moving forward. For more information, visit www.bobcat.com.

John Deere’s 60D and 72D AutoConnect Mowers
On a tractor, belly attachments can be a pain to put on and take off, yet belly mowers are great attachments, especially if you’re looking for an easy-to-use finishing mower. With the introduction of the 60D and 72D AutoConnect mower decks, John Deere is ushering in a new generation of mid-mount mower attachment technology. The AutoConnect mower decks, available for the 3000 TWENTY (3120, 3320, 3520 and 3720) Series compact utility tractors, demonstrate superior ease of use with the ability to physically drive over the mower deck and automatically connect the PTO drive shaft. The AutoConnect feature automatically connects the mower deck to the tractor and hooks up the difficult-to-reach PTO shaft simply by driving over the top of the mower. This means consumers and contractors can install their mower deck in seconds without leaving the tractor seat, virtually eliminating all frustration typically associated with this task.
