Out with the old and in with the new!

The Proflex on the right is 13 years old – and still going! This company loved it so much they decided to part exchange for a nice shiny new one. That equates to just £25 per week over it’s life.

We are currently running a 0% finance offer on the purchase of this superb contour mower.

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 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.

Not only is this a well thought out machine in the manoeuvrability department, but in terms of upkeep it is such an easy machine to look after and with just 3 bolts on each deck, setting the cut height is simple.

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.

If you require an anti-scalp contour mower there is absolutely no need to compromise on quality. It is clear that the Pro-Flex is the ultimate choice. Contact us to book your demo today.

Maintenance: Progressive Pro-Flex120.

By Grassgroup, May 11, 2017 10:19 am

Not only is this a well thought out machine in the manoeuvrability department, but in terms of upkeep it is such an easy machine to look after and with just 3 bolts on each deck, setting the cut height is simple.

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!

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. Contact us to book your demo today.

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?

Scarifier extends The Grass Group’s professional machinery line

By Grassgroup, March 29, 2010 3:15 pm

The Grass Group presents an exciting new product from renowned turf machinery manufacturer Trilo at BTME.

 

Greenkeepers are well aware of the benefits of scarification on fine turf, where it removes thatch and tidies up unwanted lateral growth.  The operation encourages healthy growth and maintains the appearance of greens and tees throughout a busy playing season.

 The process also improves surface penetration by water and enhances airflow around the plant which minimises the potential for disease.

 Finding the right machine can be tricky – pedestrian scarifiers make it a time consuming job and can suffer from wear and tear with a heavy workload. On fine turf, tractor mounted machines can be heavy and cumbersome.

 Trilo’s new VCU 120, however, has a working width of 1.2m – ideal for greens and tees – and weighs in at just 225kg, teaming up ideally with compact tractors. A slightly offset design allows working right up to the edge of the green or tee without risking damage by the tyres.

 Spacing for the rugged tungsten tipped blades is 50mm as standard, but can be swapped to 25mm for greater intensity and working depth is to a maximum of 50mm, for effective, clean scarification that will be an asset on any golf course.

 The Grass Group’s Progressive Pro Flex 120 rotary contour mower is another winner for golf. Ideal for producing a fine finish on fairways and surrounds without the risk of scalping, the Pro Flex 120 shares its PTO shaft, running gear, blade spindle assembly and drivetrain with the renowned Tri-Deck Series.

 With a high blade tip speed for a top quality cut, the mower decks are equipped with shock absorbers to prevent the deck bouncing and allow cutting as speeds up to 10kph. The full frame design allows cutting to continue while reversing, further boosting productivity.

  Individual decks hug ground contours, floating fore and aft as well as side to side, giving a superb cut on the most undulating course. Outer wings fold for transport, and with the two exterior decks raised, the remaining three can continue to cut, allowing more restricted areas to be maintained.

 A great finish is assured by the use of adjustable discharge deflectors for an even spread of clippings.

 Cut width is 3m for high workrates, reducing to 2.44m in transit and cut height is easily adjusted to meet requirements from 2cm to 8.25cm.

 The Grass Group continues to focus on innovative new machinery to make the greenkeeper’s life easier.
