This lets you select the capacity that’s most cost-effective for your operation.

GEM technology on Sahara X3 mulch coloring machine

GEM technology brings even higher efficiency

Sahara X Series mulch coloring equipment offers the option of adding the Global Equipment Management (GEM) system. GEM connects to an array of sensors within the equipment to measure functions five times per second and automatically optimize the use of colorant and water. GEM’s suite of reporting capabilities can drive even more cost savings for your operation. For a more detailed overview of the GEM system, watch our short video.
