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.

Breath of fresh air at Haydock Park

By Grassgroup, November 12, 2015 10:23 am

Haydock Park, one of the most used racecourses in the country, is lined with woodland and avenues of trees. Maurice Crooks, Head Groundsman and Estates Manager, uses both a Trilo vacuum and blower in order to manage the autumn leaves and to clear the litter and debris left behind following the 32 days racing.

Maurice currently uses the Trilo SG1100 and during the demo was ‘blown away’ by the strength, low maintenance and competitive price of the machine. It has helped Maurice and his team deal with the sometimes difficult glass bottles by shattering them inside the machine. Litter clearing is now done out of house so the SG1100 has been rehomed to the stables and is also used for leaf collection. The stable yards are tight and with a 9 cubic metre capacity the SG1100 is shorter than a standard model. Therefore, it is remotely operated so the boom goes out from the cab and the wanderhose is used like a joystick. Maurice recognises the advantages of this machines saying, “Unlike competitor machines it is so easy to operate, you don’t have to lift any pipes meaning there’s no other machine as good as this for Health & Safety.”

To complement the SG1100, the team also used a Trilo BL960 and they were so impressed they purchase an identical blower this June. In the autumn it is used for leaf clearance and in the summer it is used to scatter and disperse the grass clipping or clumps made by their 12 foot tractor mounted mower. They have the mower attached to the front and the blower on the back – the perfect combination. By purchasing another blower they can have another mower out increasing productivity.

Maurice adds, “All Trilo products are very well built and are very strong. The service from The Grass Group has always been very good and I had no hesitation in recommending both the product and the dealer to a friend at Leicester Racecourse.” We would like to thank Maurice for his custom – as always it was a pleasure!
