In this Equipment Roundup, DTN/Progressive Farmer looks at: JLG's new telehandler, Cub Cadet's new Challenger M Series side-by-side, GSI's new EVO 50 bin and Danuser's new Hornet post driver.
JLG STEPS INTO AG
JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, has introduced its first ag market product, a telehandler.
The AG925 telehandler has 8,800 pounds of capacity and a 24-foot-9-inch maximum lift height. It's tight turning radius and 25-mile-per-hour max travel speed allow it to work in and around barns, including up and down livestock rows.
A wide range of attachments are available -- carriages, forks, buckets, bale handlers, personnel work platform and auger. When equipped with a quick coupler, the AG925 can also be used with third-party and skid-steer attachments to move feed, bedding and hay.

DANUSER HAS NEW POST DRIVER AND STUMP AUGER
Danuser's new Hornet post driver is sold in two models. The T7 drives T-posts up to 7 inches in diameter at 500 to 900 blows per minute. The T8-RR drives T-posts up to an 8 inches in diameter at 400 to 800 blows per minute.
A hydraulic grapple option allows one person to pick up, load and drive posts. The Hornet comes standard with a flow control valve that allows the driver to run on machines with hydraulic flows up to 30 gallons per minute.
The stump auger is a standard 2-inch hex auger attachment that planes away stumps without requiring large, specialized equipment. A threaded pilot digs into the stump, and large cutting blades then shave the stump away. The large cutting blades are reversible for more cutting life.
The stump auger is available in 10-inch and 16-inch diameters. The 10-inch can run on auger units with 1,700 foot-pounds or more of torque, and the 16-inch can run on auger units with 3,000 foot-pounds or more of torque.
