The Flex- N-line is powered by the advanced-technology rotor in turbo Filtration's turbo III and it is independently laboratory tested to ISO 5011 standards. The Flex-N-line is the right choice for off-highway equipment such as cranes, telehan- dlers, skid steers and other machines in which space is at a premium. turbo Filtration's Flex-N-line Precleaner uses the existing air intake and requires no intake air penetration or hole in the hood of the machine. And, its design helps increase filter life and improves engine efficiency, which can reduce costly downtime. turbo Filtration, a division of the Dreison International Compa- ny, is a diversified manufacturer of original equipment and aftermarket fan and filtration parts and equipment for transportation machinery and heavy equipment.

Its reversible brush rotation, included as standard equipment, can double productivity by allowing the operator to sweep in both directions without turning around. According to the company, underperforming turf sweepers on the market with limited brush surface require several passes to maintain a synthetic turf field. And due to their poor hydraulic performance, they use convoluted brush wafers, which reduces brush-turf contact. Even with this reduced contact, typical turf sweepers suffer from engine and hydraulic overheating issues. In contrast, the Turf Boss sweeper's hydraulics are engineered to deliver more power to the brush, which enables full brush-turf contact for faster field maintenance. To combat overheating issues on turf fields, its radiator is designed to operate in 140 °F ambient temperatures. It is the only sweeper of its kind to incorporate a hydraulic oil cooler as standard equipment. The Turf Boss comes standard with turf-specific, 12-inch wide tires that tread lightly on turf with minimal imprint. To further reduce equipment maintenance, the Turf Boss features a stationary guarding system that prevents turf fibers and debris from winding around its rotating brush shaft. Its rotating idler shaft is fully protected inside the stationary shielding chamber, and its outboard mounted bearing with lip guard keeps it safely out of the fray. The unit's programmable, variable-speed brush rotation also employs ramp-up/down with zero rotation on start-up to further reduce wear and tear.

Like other Fecon tractors, the FTX290 features a spacious cab, operator comfort and ergonomic control layout as well as maintenance friendly service access. Powered by a Cummins QSC8.3 290 hp diesel, the hydraulic flow to the mulching head peaks at 100 gpm. The FTX290 features the Fecon BH120 Forestry Mulcher with variable speed motors and three optional rotor systems including Fecon's new Depth Controls Rotor (DCR) technology. Fecon DCR rotors feature the reversible Samurai Knife. The Samurai is incorporated into a depth control design that provides fast cutting in all materials and the most efficient use of horse- power. The cutting, slicing and splitting action of the Samu- rai Knife as it chips is far more productive than straight edge tools or saw teeth. This productivity is further enhanced by the Fecon DCR, depth control rings providing fast cutting durability unlike other knife-based rotors. The new FTX290 mid-sized crawler with the BH120 DCR forestry mulcher is the right combination of power, durability size and produc- tion capability for the larger jobs in R.O.W., urban interface and land improvement or development.
