Judges handed out two Lawn & Garden/Off-Highway awards of distinction. The first went to Burgess-Norton Manufacturing Co., Geneva, Ill., for left and right-hand actuator arms used in zero-turning-radius controls of commercial and residential riding lawnmowers. The PM arms are made from MPIF FC 0208-50 material and replace two six-piece assemblies. This eliminates 12 parts and related labor and assembly costs. The actuator arms incorporate a bevel gear and stop lug into a lever that controls a hydraulic system. They feature a density of 6.7 gm/cm3, a tensile strength of 50 kpsi, and a hardness from 75 to 100 HRB.
