New features for the Pro-Flex120

By Grassgroup, March 29, 2018 2:29 pm

 

NEW features for 2018 include:

Maintenance Free Blade Spindles

Pro Lift-N-Turn™

Automatic Wing Lock Valve

Rubber Damped, Automatic Belt Tensioners

100 Hour PTO Shaft Greasing Intervals

More Robust Belts and Easier Changes

Longer Service Life

Developed and tested over several years, the new maintenance free blade spindle is completely interchangeable with a greased spindle that is found on earlier models, the same spindle housing is used providing wide spacing between the bearings, ensuring low bearing loading and long service life. Maintenance free blade spindles not only provide peace of mind concerning a missed service, they also reduce overall maintenance time and costs.

The industry exclusive Pro Lift-N-Turn™ system is standard equipment on a newer Pro-Flex 120, and a feature not found on other contour mowers. Pro Lift-N-Turn™ allows the operator to temporarily raise the decks slightly off the ground without stopping and with the PTO still engaged; all without fear of doing any component damage or impacting belt life, and the driveline is subjected to less wear and tear. Crossing a path or another minor obstacle has never been easier or faster making the Pro-Flex 120 a smarter choice than ever before!

With the goal to lower ongoing maintenance costs, the Pro-Flex 120 is equipped with rubber-damped, automatic belt tensioners, offering several cost saving benefits. Replacing the older spring type tensioner, all of the upper drive and deck belts are tensioned using a maintenance free rubber-damped, automatic tensioner.

A closer look at the Pro-Flex120

By Grassgroup, March 14, 2018 1:41 pm

The Pro-Flex really is the ultimate choice when it comes to your contour mowing requirements.

We know everyone is feeling the pinch so make the most of this option to spread the cost.

Why buy an expensive ride on mower that can only be used for one function? The Pro-Flex will give you years of reliable performance and there is absolutely no need to compromise on the quality of cut and it allows you to utilise your tractor for other uses when not mowing – you know it makes sense. The Pro-Flex will last for years, we are now starting to get a stream of customer who have owned their machine for 10 – 13 years and the machine is still running well, they would just like a new shinny one with all the new even more duarable features.

The ProFlex 120 has several unique features that are very important on a trailed contour mower and these are currently ONLY available from Progressive.

The main feature that makes this mower stand out from the competition and perform so well as a contour mower are the floating decks – 5 decks in total that sit on the main frame. Essentially 5 walk behind mowers in one, you can’t get a better contour cut from a trailed machine than you do with the ProFlex Each independent floating deck has shock absorbers to reduce deck bounce as the mower travels over uneven ground and the unique 4-way rotating swivel hitch allows the tractor and mower to travel across uneven terrain without affecting one another.

Although well regarded as a rough mower, the ProFlex is equally at home on a fairway due to the quality of cut and the after cut appearance, making it ideal and not just for the more value conscious.

The independent floating decks give a 10 foot cutting width, this combined with the high blade tip speed and uplift of the blade ensures great coverage and the cut to be perfect every time with minimal compaction. The front and back rollers along with the side skids (pictured here on the right) positioned on each deck assist with the anti scalping capabilities of this machine. The height of cut is adjustable from 20 to 82.5mm in 5mm increments, changeable on each deck and the adjustable discharge deflectors give an even discharge of clippings.

The outer wings fold to give a transport width of 2.43m, and the three inner decks can actually be operated in this position, allowing access to more confined areas on the course. As a rough mower, the ProFlex is more tolerant to exposed tree roots and obstacles than other mowers, and can be used in areas where you just wouldn’t risk taking another mower for fear of damage.

Another new feature to the deck that has been developed and tested over several years is the maintenance free blade spindle. Completely interchangeable with a greased spindle (used on earlier models) the same spindle housing provides wide spacing between the bearings, ensuring low bearing loading and long service life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Five Individual floating decks

It’s like having five walk behind mowers in one. Each deck has it’s own discharge deflector, deck lift cylinder, deck, safety lock and shock absorbers.

2. Anti-Scalp Contour Mower

As even the logo would suggest. It is unmatched
in it’s ability to ride undulations. There is no other mower on the market that will cut uneven ground like this one. Everyone who sees it in action loves it.

3. Wing Lift

This feature isgreat for ease of storage and ease
of transport. Located on either side of the machine.

4. Belts

5. Reduced Maintenance

Go 100 hours
between greasing added valuable time to other required activities.

6. Rollers

These assist the mowers anti-scalping ability, by guiding the machine over the uneven ground.

7. Side Skids

These also assist with the machines anti-scalping abilities.

8. Ease of Use

Simple cutting height adjustment on each deck.

RotaDairon RX Stone Buriers

By Grassgroup, October 20, 2017 9:24 am

 

Stones, clods, grass and debris present major problems when constructing or renovating sports fields and recreation areas or preparing ground for turf production. Quality and safety of all sports surfaces from golf fairways to sports fields are affected by surface stones. Germination rates and levelness of ground are also affected by clods and organic trash. The Dairon Company, in association with members of the golf and turf industry, has developed a wide range of machines which bury all debris to leave a surface free of stones, clods, and trash:

HEAVY DUTY SOIL RENOVATORS
SINGLE DRIVE : RX 130 & RX 180
DOUBLE DRIVE : RX 220 – RX 250 – RX 300

The roller frame supports the rotor by means of two depth control screw jacks. The reverse rotation rotor is equipped with special non panning blades which throw all the soil and stones against the selection grate. The stones, clods and debris land at the bottom grate of the cultivated dept to be covered with a blanket of fine soil 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) deep. The finishing roller packs and levels the soil surface ready for perfect seeding or sodding.

Progressive TDR-15: A Closer Look

By Grassgroup, September 26, 2017 3:20 pm

 

Pro Lift-N-Turn

The productivity advantage of Progressive’s exclusive Pro Lift-N-Turn system is standard equipment. Operators have the ability to slightly raise the decks off the ground with the PTO still enagaged, making turning easier on the turf and the operator more productive. An automatic stop prevents the decks from lighting too far. The result is less ground damage from dragging the rollers across the turf. Progressive’s Lift-N-Turn has imply eliminated the issues competitive roller mowers face when turning. The deisgn allow for a 0″ uncut circle (zero turn radius).

Easily Change Height Adjustment

Infinite cutting height adjustment from 0.5″ to 4″ is easily accomplished with the supplied tool. This allows the mower to transition quickly for multiple mowing height applications. The durable design resists rusting and wear.

Full Length Rollers

6″ diameter rollers running the full length on both the front and rear of each mower deck, helps to smooth the mowing surface while cutting. The rollers also helps promote root to turf contact for faster repair and healthier turf. The rollers can also stripe the turf for a pleasing visual impact.

Simpler Maintenance

Maintenance fe eblade spindles and 100 hour greasing interval PTO shafts are used to both lower cost and time spent on routine maintenance. They also provide peace of mind that a missing daily greasing  won’t render the mower out of service.

CV Equipped Input PTO

Progressive have equipped the TDR-15 with a constant velocity input PTO as standard. This makes connecting the mower to a tractor easier and the connection time greatly reduced.

Specifications

Cutting Width: 15.5 Feet
Mowing Capacity : 2 mph 3.75 acres per hour – 4 mph 7.5 acres per hour – 6 mph 11.3 acres per hour
Recommended PTO 30 – 50 HP
