Toro Aqua Traxx Drip Tape

After years of development, Toro has announced its latest product – Aqua-Traxx FC (flow control) drip tape.

According to Toro, this product creates an entirely new category within the drip irrigation marketplace. Toro says its Aqua-Traxx FC provides growers with improved uniformity compared to turbulent-flow devices, and superior ability to control overall system flow rate compared to pressure-compensating devices. This is made possible through the design of the Flow Control emitter, and leverages Toro’s experience in manufacturing its Proportionally Balanced Cross-Section (PBX) emitter.

The Bobcat T450 reintroduces a compact track loader platform size that has not been available from Bobcat Company in recent years. In addition to M-Series enhancements and engine innovations, the T450 features more horsepower, higher auxiliary pressures, lower ground pressure and increased travel speed when equipped with the optional two-speed drive system.

With a width of just 56 inches when paired with a bucket, the T450 is well-suited for accessing and working in tight jobsites, often replacing tasks previously done with manual labor and tools.

The motivation behind the project, which kicked off in 2013, is to further improve the quality of the agricultural equipment built there, as well as the efficiency and production capacity of the facility.

“Farmers expect the best when they purchase AGCO equipment built here in Jackson, and we have a history of meeting those expectations,” says Eric Fisher, AGCO director of operations. “With the continuous improvements we’re making here and at other AGCO facilities, we continue to provide our dealers and farmers the highest-quality agricultural equipment available.”
