Classen Launches New PRO Line

The Classen PRO line of turf care equipment offers productivity-enhancing features, such as hydrostatic transmissions, anti-vibration grips and power steering, for rental centers and the commercial landscape contractor. The  line includes five products, a new stand-on aerator, a walk-behind aerator, an overseeder, a sod cutter and a turf rake.

Classen_ProLine W“Rental centers need equipment that will provide high utilization, and every contractor understands that completing more projects leads to more revenue,” said Bruno Quanquin, Classen vice president of sales and marketing. “The features included with the PRO line serve both industry needs by providing flexibility and productivity for tackling more work faster, as well as producing more profits through high equipment utilization. That’s why we developed the Classen PRO line.”  

The overseeder, turf rake and sod cutter feature hydrostatic drives. The HSC18 Sod Cutter uses a Hydro-GearT2 hydrostatic drive transmission and a Honda engine, allowing the unit to reach speeds as fast as 4.7 mph. Paired with a powerful cutting blade at the center of the machine, the sod cutter efficiently produces sod mats. 

Classen also incorporated its patented split-drive system into the Pro PowerSteer walk-behind aerator. It’s one of the only walk-behind units with power steering. The split-drive allows the engine to power dual tine shafts independently for exceptional maneuverability during aeration. This results in a unit that turns easily while operating close to hydrants, trees and shrubbery.
