Give your mowers the edge

Give your mowers the edge: The hardened tool steel of Toro’s EdgeMax bedknives delivers edge retention that lasts up to three times longer for a sharper, cleaner cut, all season long.

And being the growing season, now’s the time to make sure your machines are in pole position to bring the best quality of cut to your greens and fairways mowers by replacing worn bedknives with Toro EdgeMax.

Brought to the UK by Reesink Turfcare, Michael Hampton, parts manager at Reesink, says: “Customers appreciate the precision engineering of Toro’s EdgeMax bedknives. They have a hardened tool steel insert for a cutting edge that exceeds industry standards to last three times longer than a standard fairway bedknife and twice as long for greens. Not only do they last longer, but the hardened steel results in 50 percent less time adjusting, backlapping, grinding and replacing, too.”

Blades that maintain their sharpness ensure a cleaner cut for optimum turf health and as the machine incurs less wear, it works more smoothly and more efficiently. What’s more, because EdgeMax bedknives last up to three times longer, parts costs are also reduced and Toro believes that this combination of longer life and reduced maintenance time can equate to long-term cost savings.

Michael continues: “With genuine Toro parts, you can be sure you’re getting first-rate parts built to fit perfectly with your cylinder mowers, with consistent hole alignment on every bedknife, steels coils and computer-controlled machining and finishing, thanks to Toro’s leading manufacturing process. With Toro EdgeMax bedknives you can be sure you’ll be replacing your bedknives quickly and without the hassle or stress of gambling on likely inferior ‘will fit’ parts.

“It’s not often that there’s a short cut to a longer, better performance, but with Toro EdgeMax bedknives there is, hence this product’s popularity with customers.”

Toro EdgeMax bedknives are available across Toro’s Greensmaster and Reelmaster ranges on models fitted with DPA (Dual Precision Adjustment) cutting units. EdgeMax bedknives bring a 9.5mm and above height-of-cut to fairways and a 1.59mm and above height-of-cut to greens.

Reesink is still open for business and teams in our service centres, warehouses and across our supply chain are working tirelessly to deliver parts for our customers.

Carnoustie give back to local community

Carnoustie give back to local community: Carnoustie Golf Links are supporting a joint project with the Carnoustie Branch of Royal British Legion Scotland (RBLS) to provide bespoke hampers to those in the local area who could do with a little help this Christmas.  

The RBLS currently supports many families already, through their Food Share programme, which enables the Legion to ensure they are choosing the right items for each family when creating their personalised Hamper, in time for Christmas.

“It is very important to us, especially at this time of year, to look out for our local friends and neighbours. To be able to help, in a small way, with the Royal British Legion is the least we can do” said Michael Wells, Chief Executive of Carnoustie Golf Links.

“I speak for all at the Carnoustie Legion when I say that we are extremely grateful for the support that Carnoustie Golf Links gives us.  Their support to the FoodBank has underpinned our work for the past year and we are proud that the Links have chosen to support the Legion with a further £1000 for this project.” Davie Paton of the Royal British Legion, Carnoustie.

Having recently reached the milestone of £250,000 of contributions since achieving charitable status back in 2014, Carnoustie Golf Links have continued their season of giving by also awarding the Carnoustie Claymores £1500. The money will be used to install a portable defibrillator at Carnoustie High School and include training for club officials and High School staff.

Pat Sawers, Chairperson of Carnoustie Golf Links said, “We are delighted to be in a position where we are able to assist the town in providing much needed and potentially lifesaving equipment.”
