Turfco Direct LS-22 Overseeder Offers Improved Ergonomics, Ease-Of-Use Minneapolis, Minn. (April 5, 2007) – With an eye towards making overseeding operations easier and less strenuous for landscape professionals to perform, Turfco Direct has introduced the LS-22 overseeder. “In the development of the LS-22, we worked directly with our customers to take a hard look at the operation and ergonomics of existing overseeders,” said Scott Kinkead, executive vice president of Turfco Direct. “We learned that there were significant gains that could be made in terms of operator comfort and convenience.” Turfco Direct responded with an updated control layout that puts the most oft-used controls – the positive open/close seed flow control, lift bail and blade clutch – on the handle, within easy reach of the operator. In addition, an overall lower spring tension in the blade clutch bail reduces the hand pressure required for operation. Kinkead says the net effect of the changes has virtually eliminated the need for bending over while operating the LS-22. The LS-22 is designed to deliver maximum seed germination for unmatched overseeding results. Optimized 1 ½-inch blade spacing and micro-screw depth adjustment provides quick, accurate blade adjustments for optimal seed-to-soil contact in any conditions. A new seed window allows the user to quickly reference seed levels, and large pneumatic tires easily roll over uneven terrain, enhancing the LS-22’s all-conditions performance. Other features of the LS-22 Overseeder from Turfco Direct include: • 5.5-horsepower Honda engine – delivers commercial-duty power and reliability • Folding handle – allows for easy transport and storage • Easy-to-replace cutting blades – allows blade(s) to be replaced without removal of the cutting head – simply remove two bolts to replace a damaged blade in minutes • Available from Turfco Direct by phone, Web or fax – your direct source for lawn renovation equipment The LS-22 overseeder is backed by Turfco Direct's two-year commercial warranty, as well as the company's renown technical service, available by fax, online at www.turfco.com, or by calling Turfco Direct toll-free at (800) 679-8201.
