Both cabs boast more room, an uncluttered environment with CAN bus wiring, 12-volt power points, easy to reach armrest and joystick controls and a new Miller Systems Monitor to manage the chassis operations.

Onboard Talc, Graphite Applicator
For its lineup of seed tenders, Unverferth Manufacturing Company, Inc., introduces the T&G Applicator for talc, graphite or a combination of the two. The applicator mounts on the rear of the Seed Runner and Seed Pro bulk tenders and has a 50-lb. capacity. The hopper lid’s weather-tight fit includes a gas-strut lift assist for easy filling. The seed tender’s hydraulic system powers the applicator, augering the talc or graphite into the conveyor inlet. The auger system and internal agitation ensure even coating. The T&G Applicator includes a metering control that can be turned off when not needed. Option list price: $1,750. Visit your Unverferth dealer or www.umequip.com.
Setting the Record Straight
The service truck featured in "Shop on Wheels" (September 2012) was not fabricated by Kevin Clark, his staff or family, as Clark indicated. It was designed and constructed to Clark’s specifications by Legacy Truck Equipment of Oregon, Mo. "Although this is a fairly large service truck, with a unique set of features, it is routine for us to build this type of unit," says Dennis Seyller, company president. The third-generation, family-owned company manufactures custom service trucks, lube trucks, harvesters (service trucks designed for custom harvesters), oil-fi eld trucks and welding-truck bodies. It has more than 3,000 units on the road and in the fi elds. You can learn more about the company and its products at www.seyllerbodies.com. Thank you, Legacy Truck, for setting the record straight.
Greater Visibility and Comfort
Replacing its K Series, Bobcat Company introduces the M Series 500 frame size skid-steer and compact-track loaders. The new loaders have the largest cab door opening on the market, offering superior visibility to the edge of the bucket or the corners of an attachment. The height of the cab has been increased, as well as the side and rear windows.
The new medium-size machines include the S510, S530, S550, S570 and S590 skid-steer loaders and the T550 and T590 compact-track loaders. The S510, S550 and T550 models feature a radius lift path, providing operators the reach and visibility to dump grain or feed. The S530, S570, S590 and T590 models feature a vertical lift path, with the ability to lift heavier loads higher, making it easier to haul and load large hay bales and dump feed into grinders. The M Series Written by Margy Fischer vertical-lift-path machines feature an increased lift height compared with the K Series models. The auxiliary hydraulic quick couplers are mounted directly to the front plate of the lift arm for solid mounting, and hoses are routed through the loader arms for better protection. A guard bar extends in front of the coupler for added security and a steel tailgate prevents items from penetrating the engine compartment. The hydraulic bucket-positioning option keeps the loader bucket level as the lift arms travel upward, enabling operators to spill less and work faster.
The 500 loaders are built with a new cooling design to make it easier to clean out the cooling system, with an oil cooler that swings up, allowing the operator to clean the area between the oil cooler and the radiator. The skid-steer models offer two-speed options, which boost the maximum travel speed from 7.4 mph in low range to 11 mph in high range.
