Applicator Stretches to New Widths
John Deere extends the 2510H Nutrient Applicator Series with a 23-row model. Built with a five-section flex-fold frame, the 2510H has a working width of 57½'. The machine can apply anhydrous ammonia at speeds up to 10 mph. A hydraulic down-pressure system maintains proper operating depth across the 23 openers in even and uneven terrain. The 2510H Series can be used for anhydrous application in the fall, for preplant applications and for sidedress applications soon after planting, and can triple the typical sidedress application window. This allows the operator more time and flexibility in the field. For transport, the machine folds as a seven-section unit and is only 18' wide and 13' tall.

Increased Lift Height
The latest addition to the Gehl skid loader line is the V270, a vertical-lift machine. With a 130" lift height, the skid loader has a rated operating capacity of 2,700 lb. The V270 skid loader is powered by an 84-hp Yanmar turbo-diesel engine with
215 ft.-lb. torque. The lift-arm design provides extended reach and lift height and maintains views to the sides of the loader and a direct line of sight to the bucket. The machine features the Hydraloc System for brakes and interlock for starter,
lift/tilt cylinders, auxiliary hydraulics and wheel drives. The skid loader is available with the optional Power-A-Tach attachment mounting system. Visit a Gehl dealer or www.gehl.com.
Short Wheelbase With Light Tongue Weight
Rhino designed the TS12 Stealth for customers with utility tractors who have high expectations for their flex-wing cutter. Built with a shorter wheelbase and pivoting tongue, the mower provides a 12'
cutting width. The operator can operate the wings and lift the TS12 Stealth through a single hydraulic hose. Compared with similar models, the TS12 Stealth is 600 lb. lighter, with a total weight of 2,600 lb. The TS12 Stealth folds to a 90" transport width and requires a tractor with 35 PTO hp or more.

Heavy Duty Utility
Built to provide reliable and dependable horsepower, the 2600 HD Series from Massey Ferguson offers four utility tractor models ranging from 62 to 83 PTO hp. The series is powered by four-cylinder turbocharged Perkins diesel engines. With an increased weight-to-horsepower ratio, the 2600 HD models feature an integrated system of all-steel components. The integrated chassis distributes weight, load and vibrations evenly throughout the machine. The standard transmission is a 8x8 synchro-shuttle, with an optional 12x4 partially synchronized transmission available. Tractors are outfitted with two gear-driven hydraulic pumps—one dedicated to steering and one dedicated to remote hydraulic valves. For more, visit a Massey Ferguson dealer or www.masseyferguson.com.
