The addition of the new machinery will allow GrassMaster to increase capacity and upgrade the provision of services to clients.
“We are excited about this latest addition which helps keep us at the forefront within the hybrid grass sector. The Gen-S is electrically powered and allows our experienced installation
teams to stitch a GrassMaster pitch more quickly,” said Benjamin Huneau, General Manager GrassMaster Solutions. “The new lighter weight machine allows for lower down-pressures on the surface, thus reducing the machine’s impact when working on young grass.”
