Since its inception some 10 years ago, the TMSystem™ from Advanced Turf Technology (ATT) has continually improved and added to the range. The TMSystem™ is unique and by using the appropriate chassis adaptor kit, is fully compatible with all main-stream makes of triplex mowers and lightweight fairway mowers. This ATT turf management system consists of a range of 10 SMART cassettes which enable different maintenance activities to take place such as aeration, brushing, de-thatching, scarifying, top dressing, grooming, levelling and mowing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Being a truly multi-functional system and uniquely in the industry the cassettes are also all fully interchangeable with ATT’s own 22″ pedestrian INFiNiSystem™. The INFiNiSystem™ pedestrian machine out performs any conventional mower. It cuts better; tracks straight; follows undulations; has low weight; can be battery powered or configured as a hybrid; is maintenance and environmentally friendly and offers great overall value for money. Available in 22″, 26″ and 30” widths, designed and built in Sheffield. It is the ultimate tool for bowling green maintenance.  Offering unrivalled agronomic benefits and utilising the latest design and manufacturing expertise to facilitate ease of use including swapping any one of the range of turf maintenance cassettes in minutes.One of the most popular cassettes within the range is the unique Ultragrooming cassette. The question of Ultragrooming is becoming much more of a hot topic with the ever increasing need for consistent surfaces and the need to be more environmentally friendly, whilst achieving high quality and trimming equipment costs where possible.Ultragrooming is a process that removes the puffiness and thatch from your green. With regular use it is the pre-eminent solution to help minimize puffiness in both high density creeping bent and other grasses. It will remove unsightly seed heads in Poa annua turf with minimal fuss. On newly established surfaces it can help reduce the ingress of Poa annua by “grabbing” individual Poa plants before they get a chance to take hold. It will produce a superior fine leafed Poa turf stand when used regularly on Poa dominant greens.Treatment with the Ultragroomer every week to 10 days minimises the life cycle of the leaf keeping it in a consistent state rather than progressing to puffiness and lateral growth stages by using thin tipped blades at 5mm spacings. It can prevent excessive organic material developing, making for a more consistent surface over the course of the season.In theory not Ultragrooming is the equivalent to brushing your teeth regularly but then not visiting the dentist for a deep clean, the grass will still look presentable but the lack of good grooming habits will catch up with you and cause problems further down the line.Another benefit of Ultragrooming is that you can save money on your top dressing. With the costs of aggregates constantly increasing, a regular Ultragrooming programme can mean that the need to top dress decreases saving you money, time and even worn parts due to the abrasive nature of the sand whilst also improving the health of your bowling green at the same time.So the question really is, if you’re not already regularly Ultragrooming when can you start?
