Meet Magnum’s newest generation of the Installer; the A-series. This turf and sod installer features a tighter turning radius, a longer life span for its bearings, a heavy duty frame, and a Kubota diesel engine. It is a operator friendly, four-wheel drive machine that combines efficiency and dependability into a conveniently compact package weighing around 2600 pounds and running at speeds up to 10mph. The concept of this Installer grew out of the need for a lighter weight, quick moving vehicle for the installation of big rolls of sod, one that could handle the terrain but not damage the turf.
There are many time saving options that the Installer provides. Hydraulic clamps allow for the arms to pick up a big roll without the need for a rod, meaning the operator never has to get of the unit to manually change the roll. The light kit option allows for the installer to be used when it is dark, allowing it to run at any time of the day. Flotation tires allow for less pounds per square foot, creating less impact on the soil. The most convenient option is the finger touch controls on the handle. The buttons on the handle control the hydraulic clamps and the tension control. The upgraded handle allows the operator to have all the controls that he needs at his fingertips, without having to remove his hand. Need to load it onto a truck? No problem! The Magnum Installer can be picked up with a forklift and lifted onto the truck quick and easy. Trailer? The front wheels rotate inward, allowing the installer to fit on a standard size utility trailer; just lift the arm, rotate the wheel, lower the arm and pin shut and you are ready to start installing.
