As UK distributor for many brands we can assist you with just about every area of grounds upkeep. Come and discuss your requirements with us, be it Grass cutting, scarification, soil renovation, aeration or anything else.

Look no further, our star of the show will be the Progressive ProFlex 120 it is absolutely the mower for the job. 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 Pro-Flex. 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 and offering a 10 foot cutting width.

Although well regarded as a rough mower, the Pro-Flex 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.

Progressive have really given some thought to the manoeuvrability of this machine. This piece of equipment is not only easily negotiable around trees, but Progressive’s exclusive Pro Lift-N-Turn™ feature is easy to operate and ideal when engaging the PTO or when crossing a path. The four way swivel hatch allows the mower to track contours independently of the tractor while remaining true to the tractor and the full frame provides the ability to mow even while backing up.

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.

With the goal to lower ongoing maintenance costs, the Pro-Flex is equipped with rubber-damped, automatic belt tensioners, offering several cost saving benefits. All of the upper drive and deck belts are tensioned using rubber-damped, automatic tensioners. All spring type tensioners have been eliminated so there are now fewer moving parts for greater long term reliability. The Pro-Flex is also equipped with PTO shafts that feature a 100 hour lubrication interval. All in all, this means routine servicing is faster and easier so there is more time for mowing – win win! For those of you who might already own an older Pro-Flex and thinking of a new one for 2018 here is a summary of the newest features:

Maintenance Free Blade Spindle

Pro Lift’N’Turn

Automatic Wing Lock Valve

Rubber Damped, Automatic Belt Tensioners

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

Progessive TDR-15: The Better Built Choice

By Grassgroup, September 21, 2017 1:27 pm

 

Progressive’s 15.5ft TDR-15 Tri-Deck Roller finishing mower is an ideal choice for municipal grounds care, school, playing fields, parks, sport facilities and polo fields in either wet or dry conditions.

This versatile mower can cut as low as 0.5 inch. Full length rollers smooth the field surface and stripe for visual impact. It can also speed divot repair by promoting root-to-soil contact while aiding in moisture retention.


The superior quality cut comes from high lift rotary blades that create enough vacuum to lift the grass for a clean uniform cut and disperse the clippings evenly over the rollers. Easy access to height adjusters makes setting the height of cut quick and precise. Rear rollers also provide extra protection for the safe discharge of clippings and debris. Now standard, Progressive’s exclusive Pro Lift-N-Turn allows the decks to be temporarily lifted slightly off the ground with the PTO still engaged and without fear of drive line damage.
The TDR-15 is another example of the ingenuity and quality that goes into producing a durable and productive rotary finishing mower that is easy to maintain. The TDR-15 not only provides versatility of use and quality of construction, it is the better built choice.

Smart by design: Progressive Pro-Flex 120.

By Grassgroup, April 7, 2017 12:50 pm

There are many reason as you are discovering why the Pro-Flex 120 is best choice for any self respecting golf course… here is a summary of some more smart features we know you’ll love.

Low Maintenance

The Pro-Flex is easier to use and maintain than ever before, the latest Pro-Flex now incorporates maintenance free blade spindles and rubber-damped automatic belt tensioners which eliminates a significant amount of time needed for routine maintenance while also lowering operating costs.

Manoverabilty

Progressive have really given some thought to the manoeuvrability of this machine. This piece of equipment is not only easily negotiable around trees, but Progressive’s exclusive Pro Lift-N-Turn™ feature is easy to operate and ideal when engaging the PTO or when crossing a path. The four way swivel hatch allows the mower to track contours independently of the tractor while remaining true to the tractor and the full frame provides the ability to mow even while backing up. Not only this but the shock absorbers on each deck control the bounce when moving at speed, increasing productivity while maintaining the quality of cut.

Transportation

The outer wings of the Pro-Flex are designed to fold to make the machine narrower making both transportation and passing through narrow shed doors a whole lot easier. The overall transport width of the Pro-Flex is 8.5 ft. with the wings folded, making movement around tighter more confined areas; bridges, trees and walkways so much easier and therefore cause minimal impact to play. Mechanical deck locks automatically engage when the outer decks are fully raised and the wing locks are released from the operator’s seat.

Hydraulic Wing Circuit

A new feature to the Pro-Flex (on machines after SN 15272165B) is the wing hydraulic circuit that includes an automatic lock valve to prevent unwanted movement of the wings during mowing. The new automatic lock valve is incorporated into the wing lock release mechanism. It replaces the manual ¼ turn valve that is found on earlier models. This change also simplifies the connection to the tractor as only two hydraulic hoses are required to run between the tractor and the mower. When the wings need to be raised or lowered, the Operator simply pulls and holds the pull rope from the tractor’s seat until they are fully raised or lowered.

Colour

You can complete the package by choosing the colour you most prefer! The Pro-Flex is available in a choice traditional red or industry green to give you the complete package when used alongside your preferred tractor.

If you are thinking of going trailed there is absolutely no need to compromise on quality. It is clear that the Pro-Flex is the ultimate choice. Don’t just take our word for it…! Why not book a demo today?

Decks get down to business: Progressive Pro-Flex 120.

By Grassgroup, March 31, 2017 10:08 am

The Pro-Flex 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 Pro-Flex. 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 Pro-Flex 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 Pro-Flex 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. What’s not to love?

Value for Money: Progressive Pro-Flex 120.

By Grassgroup, March 22, 2017 12:55 pm

The Pro-Flex 120 is all about offering high value to the owner. Unlike a self-contained, ride-on rough mower, the Pro-Flex provides increased equipment performance as the tractor can be used for other tasks when not required for mowing – This means a lower total cost of ownership.

Additionally, the required horsepower for the tractor connected to a Pro-Flex is considerably less which equates to large savings in fuel year after year – Nice! The mechincal simplicity and low operating cost of this tractor and Pro-Flex combination, compared to that of a dedicated hydrostatically driven, self-contained mower, confirms the value offered by the Pro-Flex.

The Pro-Flex is such a versatile mower, it is equally at home as a fairway or rough mower. With the ability to cut as low as 1″ and height adjustment easily set on each deck, the machine operator can easily change the cutting height on each deck of the Pro-Flex in minutes. Most importantly there isn’t the requirement for the time consuming task of first levelling all the decks, as required with competing mowers. Setting the Pro-Flex height individually on each deck gives the Greenkeeper the flexibility to change mowing heights as conditions or mowing locations change. As time is money, we would say this is a massive win.

As a rough mower, the Pro-Flex is more tolerant to exposed tree roots and obstacles than other mowers, and can be used in areas where reel type mowers can’t be for fear of expensive damage.

So what are you waiting for? The Pro-Flex 120 delivers 100% if you are looking for:

  • A quality cut
  • Excellent contour following
  • Large working width
  • High work rate with shock absorbers to prevent bouncing of decks
  • Flexibility as the wing decks can be hydraulically raised for restrictive areas
  • Ability to cut round obstacles with its excellent turning circle
  • With its solid construction giving a dependable service
  • Low maintenance cost
  • A machine that is easy to maintain
