Fortbrand, Hagie Deliver Hagie GST 20 To JFK

Fortbrand Services, Inc., the exclusive North American distributor for the Hagie GST 20, multi-function, multi-season airfield maintenance unit, announces that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has taken delivery of its second Hagie GST 20 airport sprayer, equipped with a Vammas PS4200 Edge Light Plow and Tiger 24’ flail mower for use at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).

The Hagie GST 20 is a unique multi-function, multi-seasonal unit that was developed for airport use in cooperation with the staff of Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport. Currently the equipment is in use at ANC, BOS, DTW, JFK, MKE, MLI, MSP, RME, RNO and YYC. The unit can be used as (i) a high-speed, precision runway deicer and pesticide/herbicide applicator, saving both time and money in spraying applications; (ii) a runway/taxiway light plow and sign cleaner, saving airport operators hundreds of thousands of dollars in performing these tasks, as compared with traditional labor intensive methods and (iii) a flail mower, making the Hagie GST 20 one of the only pieces of airfield maintenance equipment that can be used every day of the year.

Fortbrand Services is a niche business specializing in the sale, lease and rental of aircraft ground support equipment throughout the aviation industry. The Company also is a distributor for unique airfield maintenance equipment, including high-speed Vammas snow removal vehicles, the multi-function Hagie GST 20 Sprayer and the Beam A8000 Multi-Task Airport Service Vehicle.
