By Grassgroup, January 17, 2018 1:24 pm

We will be returning to BTME next week ready to talk to you about our range of grounds maintenance products. 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.

When you have large areas of land with slopes and undulations you need a mower that is going to handle the contours with ease and ensure a top quality results at the same time.

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

100 Hour PTO Shaft Greasing Intervals

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.
