Terra Novo, a leading manufacturer of erosion and sediment control products, expands its EarthGuard line to include EarthGuard® EDGE™, a pellet form of its popular erosion-control product. The new EDGE formula allows users to apply the product without water by hand, machine or air-drop. It’s ideal for use in remote areas with limited water, and for smaller jobs where hydro-mulching is cost-prohibitive.<br><br>
EarthGuard EDGE is non-toxic and 100% biodegradable. It’s chemically engineered to absorb the impact of raindrops, and provide immediate erosion control and soil stabilization, until permanent vegetation is established. EarthGuard EDGE is effective for erosion control, slope stabilization, landscape design, reclamation, stormwater runoff protection, fire/burn rehabilitation, land development and construction.<br><br>

2. The warmest socks
Heat Holders<sup>®</sup> claims its thermal socks are the warmest in the world: seven times warmer than regular cotton socks, and three times warmer than ordinary thermal socks. Featuring a tog rating of 2.34, Heat Holders socks use a unique patent-pending, extra-long looped thermal pile that makes layering unnecessary. The innovative knitting technology offers superior moisture-wicking abilities, while locking in warm air and holding it closer to the skin to keep feet warmer longer, the company says. <br><br>
Heat Holders are available in a variety of colors, lengths and sizes for men, women and children. Heat Holders, which retail from $15.99 for adults and $11.99 for children’s sizes, also offers a range of ski socks and Wellington boot socks, as well as slipper socks, for use around the house.<br><br>

3. Kuhn rotary tedder
Kuhn’s GF 7902 rotary tedder is designed to meet the needs of hay producers demanding the highest-quality spreading of the crop to ensure even and quick dry-down. Its small-diameter rotors are ideally designed to spread short, thick crops.
Replacing the GF 7702, the GF 7902 incorporates a new frame design that allows the tedder to mount closer to the tractor, making attachment to smaller tractors easier, and reducing the weight on the tractor’s rear axle. Additionally, a new PTO shaft with a Rilsan® coating reduces the tube friction and allows increased abrasion resistance.<br><br>
