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:
