  • Publication number: 20210105933
    Abstract: A ride-on spreader/sprayer including a hopper configured to receive expel dry material, a user platform configured to receive and support a user of the ride-on spreader/sprayer, a fluid storage tank providing a fluid storage volume and including an inlet for adding fluid to the fluid storage volume, an exit by which the fluid exits the fluid storage volume, a first fluid passage, and a drain channel defining a second fluid passage separate from the first fluid passage, wherein the fluid may reach the exit through at least one of the first fluid passage and the second fluid passage, a pump fluidly coupled to the exit of the fluid storage tank, and multiple spray nozzles fluidly coupled to the pump.

  • Publication number: 20210047834
    Abstract: A reinforced notched sub-purlin is formed by a top flange, one or more vertical webs, one or more base flanges, one or more notches, and at least one reinforcement. The top flange extends the entire length of the reinforced notched sub-purlin. The vertical web(s) extend from the top flange, and the one or more notches are formed by removing a portion of the vertical web (where only one vertical web is used) or by separating adjacent vertical webs (where a plurality of vertical webs are used). A base flange extends from the vertical web(s) in a direction opposite the direction in which the top flange extends from the vertical web. The at least one reinforcement is provided on the vertical web(s) and provides enhanced stiffness, thus improving ability of the reinforced notched sub-purlin (and a roof or wall panel installed thereon) to resist forces resulting from, for example, wind and snow.

  • Patent number: 10918003
    Abstract: A turf aerator includes a frame, a tine crank having a clearing end with threads, a plurality of tines coupled to the tine crank, and a coupling for fastening the tine crank clearing end to the frame. The coupling includes a collar area for receiving the tine crank clearing end, an anchor plate for selectively fastening to the frame, and an opening sized for accessing the threads of the tine crank clearing end. The turf aerator further includes an actuator threaded complementary to the threads of the tine crank clearing end for selectively moving the coupling from an extended position relative to the tine crank to a retracted position relative to the tine crank.

  • Publication number: 20190320597
    Abstract: A blade assembly for use with a sod cutter, the blade assembly including a first vertical knife, a second vertical knife, and a horizontal blade extending between and coupled to an interior surface of both the first vertical knife and the second vertical knife. Each of the first vertical knife and the second vertical knife includes a first beveled edge extending along a first frontward-facing edge from a toe portion to a base portion of each of the first vertical knife and the second vertical knife. Additionally, each of the first vertical knife and the second vertical knife also includes a second beveled edge extending along a second frontward-facing edge proximate to a mounting portion of each of the first vertical knife and the second vertical knife.

  • Publication number: 20190289766
    Abstract: A turf aerator includes a tine assembly and an input mechanism. The tine assembly includes multiple tines, a retractor plate for positioning the plurality of tines, and a linkage for selectively moving the retractor plate and the plurality of tines between an operating position and a retracted position. The input mechanism coupled to the linkage, the input mechanism operable to activate the linkage to move the retractor plate and the plurality of tines between the operating position and the retracted position.

  • Patent number: 6729296
    Abstract: An improved rotary engine that harmoniously produces multiple, sequential cycles. A main housing is comprised of a concentric stator sandwiched between a front and an aft wall enclosing a cylindrical inner space. A network of combustors are stationed about the stator periphery. Mounted on a central axis within the inner space is a concentrically revolving rotor body. The combustors sequentially introduce a working fluid into a plurality of expansion chambers symmetrically stationed within the rotor body. As the rotor is propelled by the working fluid, a variable vane transversely mounted within each expansion chamber simultaneously performs work on a fluid in a compression region. The compressed fluid of each cycle is discharged and diverted to compliment the combustor of a sequential cycle. A high degree of power and efficiency is achieved using simple mechanics to produce multiple cycles during each revolution.

  • Publication number: 20030159673
    Abstract: A variable vane rotary engine comprising of a housing formed by a stator with front and rear covers enclosing a rotor. The stator is divided into two rotatably symmetrical power-compression and intake-exhaust sections. Positioned at the beginning of each power-compression section of the stator is a combustor connected by a nozzle. Positioned throughout the intake-exhaust section of the stator are exhaust ducts. Interior to the rotor are a plurality of symmetrically positioned chambers each containing a variable vane pivotably articulated on a shaft. The chambers are exposed to the stator through peripheral rotor combustion ducts. The vanes act as a barrier dividing the chambers into an expansion region and a compression region. The dynamics of each variable vane are controlled by a set of shaft mounted eccentric bearings following on a common set of cams. The front side-wall of the rotor has a concentrically cutout inlet exposing the expansion chambers to housing air inlets.
