The trusted Vanguard® engine is fuel efficient, runs cooler and features a fully pressurized oil lubrication system for longer life.
The 3WD Series/Parallel™ traction drive improves traction in wet or heavy working conditions to get the job completed quickly. In traditional 3WD units all traction effort is lost as soon as one wheel slips. Series/Parallel™ ensures that you always have tractive effort with at least one wheel to keep your unit from getting stuck and losing precious time.
Easy to use and adapt to the next task. Having the right tool for the job increases the effectiveness of your crew and the efficiency of your operation. Attachments are designed to minimize operator influence to achieve the same result, regardless of whether a new or veteran employee performed the task.
Finger tip operation (no overhead bar), paired handle/foot pedal and torsion bar to improve down pressure provide level/consistent contouring in difficult areas. Quick-up latch locks blade in transport position between uses to improve operator ease of use.
For operator ease of use, and to improve the effectiveness of the steerable front attachments, hydraulic power steering is now available on the 5040 and a rugged gear drive system on the 3040. Both designs are now environmentally sealed to ensure long life and reduced maintenance.
The new unit was designed with the mechanic in mind, to reduce, simplify, and increase access to all scheduled maintenance. The majority of scheduled maintenance projects can be accessed by lifting the operator seat. For increased access, the side and center quarter panels can be taken off by removing just a few bolts.
With the Quick Attach System™ (QAS), anyone can switch from one attachment to another in less than a minute, with no tools required! Match the machine to the environment to get your fields back into playing condition The QAS allows you to do more with less, and get the job done faster. Rear QAS is standard on the Sand Pro® 3040 and 5040, front QAS™ is optional on the Sand Pro® 5040.
With the Mid-mount system, a flex mounted toolbar can be adjusted to flex backwards when it comes in contact with anything from rocks or other rigid objects to prevent gouging or wash boarding. Multiple locking depth settings to ensure consistent depth of scarification from day to day or between operators. A mid-mount leveling system is also available to make quick work of the difficult projects like around dugouts or player positions.
Quick connect hydraulics make it simple to connect or disconnect any of the powered attachments in under a minute. This eliminates the need for dedicated equipment.
