Buy two get one free offer extended

Buy two get one free offer extended: Reesink Turfcare has expanded the buy two get one free offer on Toro’s Flex 35B multi-trajectory block sprinklers to include dual-trajectory sprinklers.

Considering the fluctuating weather conditions so far this spring, this will be music to greenkeepers’ ears; because handling varying temperatures, windy conditions and seasonal weather changes are what Toro’s Flex B Series does best.

Both the Flex 35B multi-trajectory block sprinklers and Flex B dual trajectory sprinklers with universal BSP thread are perfect for a quick irrigation upgrade and for ensuring consistent, efficient and effective irrigation.

Whether your course is exposed and catches the wind, if you have obstacles to avoid or need to reduce your sprinklers’ radius, the Flex B Series benefits from either multi-trajectory or dual trajectory adjustment to help you accomplish what you need. Which you choose from comes down to what level of control and precision you want. Both offer it, just in varying increments.

With the multi trajectory option, precision is in one degree increments from seven to 30 degrees. Dual trajectory meanwhile can be adjusted to a 25 degree setting to provide maximum distance of throw, or a 15 degree setting for improved wind performance and radius reduction.

Both allow you to tackle every obstacle on the course – wind, trees, bunkers, mounds and more.

But that’s not all. The ratcheting riser is an exclusive feature from Toro that allows you to simply pull up the riser and ratchet it to the precise position you want to water which means you can quickly and easily align or adjust watering locations to suit seasonal needs.

Robert Jackson, water division sales manager at Reesink Turfcare, the sole Toro distributor in the UK for irrigation products, says: “Flexibility is vital when it comes to effective irrigation, because in order to get the most out of your irrigation system, you need to be able to adapt to changing conditions fast. The Flex 35B multi-trajectory and dual-trajectory sprinklers have a range of features that allow you to achieve this and that’s what makes the range perfect for golf courses.”

For flexible irrigation in all conditions the Flex 35B multi-trajectory and dual-trajectory sprinklers are the perfect solution. A streamlined body, yet with all the Toro innovation contained within, the buy two get one free offer for either model, is likely to be a head turner, says Reesink, encouraging its customers to enquire while the promotion is on and while stocks last.

Emission free weed control

Emission free weed control: The 100% electric AllTrec Tool Carrier from Campey Turf Care Systems has made weed control CO2-emissions free.

Weed control is an essential task in almost every groundsman, greenkeeper, contractor and landscapers schedule, and the AllTrec with Air E-Variator or Weed Brush has made it quicker, easier and emissions-free.

Emission free weed control

Emission free weed control

The E-Variator is one of four attachments currently available for the AllTrec Carrier and it has been specifically designed for weed management on large paved and semi-paved surfaces. It works both preventively and repressively, saving up to 70% of its own energy through re-use – better known as the patented advanced air recycling system.

The unique variable airflow function (ADS) enables the machine to work in corners and around obstacles in just one pass, with operators able to fully control the attachment using the digital control screen. LPG tanks used for the E-Variator Weed Burner can be mounted to the back of the AllTrec, with a connection available for the automatic tank heater to prevent them from freezing. The closed burner system with heat recovery has gas reduction of no less than 60% and an automatic temperature regulation of 380°C.

Weeds can also be removed using the 70cm Weed Brush, which is electrically powered with three brush speeds and controlled using the onboard joystick. It can be hydraulically adjusted to any angle and used for a full day without any worry of batteries running out. All batteries come with a three-year warranty and have a lifetime of + – 2500 charge discharge cycles. The 48VDC battery uses LifePO4 technology with a capacity of 20kwh or an optional 30kwh, with onboard charging taking 4-8 hours.

The power produced from the battery means the AllTrec can also be operated using the mower or hedge cutter attachments. The hedge cutting attachment has a 75cm working width with electric motors directly powering the blades which have speeds from 2000-3000rpm. The deck is controlled using a joystick and is easy to manoeuvre for a comfortable and effective days work. The mowing deck comes in optional cutting widths of 130cm or 180cm with a variable height of cut from 30-110mm, making it perfect for use on regularly maintained grass or overgrown vegetation. When cutting with the four-blade 180cm deck, the battery will typically last for 6-8 hours and 7-9 hours using the three-blade 130cm deck.

A large-action radius and highly efficient attachments combined with low operation and maintenance costs make the AllTrec perfect for use in urban environments, sports complexes, holiday resorts and parks by contractors, local authorities and landscapers.

Headland Keeps School Disease Free

Headland Keeps School Disease Free: Thanks to help from Headland Amenity, the 17 hectares of grounds for rugby, tennis and cricket at Kings Bruton School have come through the winter of 2017 disease-free and stronger than ever before.  For a relatively small school, they punch well above their weight when it comes to sport and the facilities they offer their 350 pupils.

Grounds Manager, Adie Davis, and his team of 6 groundstaff are kept busy looking after the facilities. “I have been familiar with Headland products for a long time and have enjoyed success with their programmes here at the school for a number of years. On our cricket outfields & rugby pitches we’ve been using Multigreen 28-0-0 which delivers results for the full 5-6 months it promises it will.” Applied in April and then again in September for strength through the autumn/winter, this is complemented on the fine turf areas by C-Complex in various formulations: 4-3-4 used during renovation work; 7-0-7 through the cricket playing season and 5-2-10 as a spring-starter.

Headland Keeps School Disease Free

On the cricket squares, Adie has found success with the combination of Multigreen Mini and Headland’s 20/20/30 non-pesticidal tank mix. “We apply the Multigreen Mini in early autumn to take us through the winter and then once a month between October and March we supplement this with a spray of the 20/20/30 enhanced plant health mix.” Headland’s industry-leading 20-20-30 mix combines Seamac ProTurf Fe and Liquid Turf Hardener plant protectants and Turfite elicitor that work together to strengthen the plant against disease. The combination of products applied at Kings Bruton delivers enhanced root development, disease resistance and strong colour. “This programme has kept all disease, including Fusarium and Dollar Spot, at bay – which I know groundsmen at other schools are suffering from.”

As the school heads towards its 500-year anniversary celebrations in 2019, Adie is delighted with the success achieved with their current nutritional regime. “I’ve worked closely with Headland’s Alex Hawkes, who is very knowledgeable, for a number of years and it’s thanks to him that we now have a combination of products that are really working. We get a lot of comments from staff, parents and local clubs that they’ve never seen turf quite like ours, our cricket areas in particular, which makes all the hard work worthwhile.”
