Cricket club wins Toro Greensmaster 800

Cricket club wins Toro Greensmaster 800: Westgate-on-Sea Cricket Club is the lucky winner of a Toro Greensmaster 800 pedestrian mower after entering distributor Reesink Turfcare’s competition at SALTEX. 

Raif Kelly, who has been at the club for 35 years having worn many hats along the way from president to secretary to community manager and finally, as head groundsman, is “incredibly pleased” with the result from the prize draw and can’t wait to put the Greensmaster 800 to work.

Overseeing three groundskeeping teams that work diligently on the square every weekend, Raif explains: “The Greensmaster 800 will come very in handy to cut the cricket strips to the standards to which we have accustomed our members. This is our first Toro machine so we’re very excited to try it and see what it can do.

“We make sure the square is always in good condition. A lot of work goes into it over the year, starting in May and finishing in September, at which point we put it to bed during the winter. There’s only two months in the whole year where we don’t do any work so the Toro mower will be put to a lot of good use!”

The Greensmaster 800 is built upon Toro’s legendary reputation of the Greensmaster 1000, with a cutting width range of 18 inches, heavy-duty 4.3hp Subaru Industrial engine, narrow mowing swath for narrow striping and a standard 14-blade cylinder. This walk-behind mower excels on the cricket square, providing a superior precision of cut and straight-line tracking for the perfect finish.

Raif continues: “We welcome this new greensmower and the technology it brings, it’s a great opportunity to try new things and new techniques and see where that takes us.”

Reesink’s South East branch will be delivering the machine to the club and branch manager Jon Cole says of the win: “Congratulations to the team at Westgate-On-Sea Cricket Club. We hope the Toro Greensmaster will help maintain your pitch to the highest level for this season and many more to come.”

Toro’s New Greensmaster 1021

Toro’s New Greensmaster 1021: Bringing a new level of consistency to pedestrian mowing and launching on the Reesink Turfcare stand at BTME 2019 is Toro’s new Greensmaster 1021 with patent-pending features to improve the operator’s experience without affecting the quality of cut.

Part of a new series of fixed-head pedestrian greens mowers, the 21-inch mower benefits from a number of features designed to take performance cutting to the next level, according to the company. The handle and suspension have all received the Toro touch and together mean operation is simpler, cut is more consistent and adjustment is even easier.

Jeff Anguige, national sales manager for Reesink Turfcare, says: “The innovation in the new series of pedestrian greensmowers takes what was loved and appreciated in the enduring success of the Greensmaster 1000 mower and makes it even better. This is Toro innovation at its best – taking something you think can’t be any better and doing just that.”

The most significant design development comes from the new telescoping loop handle which can be easily adjusted to comfortably accommodate operators of all heights and skill levels, while handle isolation mounts give the cutting unit constant contact with the ground throughout the mowing process.

Jeff continues: “Even the slightest variability in the height of cut due to handle pressure or different operator movements can affect the consistency of cut. These design improvements eliminate that, while the constant contact with the ground and  the inclusion of the new EdgeSeries cylinders guarantees a crisp, close and precise cut.”

New operator controls in conjunction with a shorter distance between the roller and the drum also means handling is more precise in turns and on undulating ground.

Maintenance is now even quicker – now it only takes minutes to replace an entire cutting unit or engine assembly. It’s not just that though, the modular design allows for easy repair and replacement of key components and each unit’s ability to backlap directly using the transport wheels means the entire maintenance process is streamlined.

Jeff concludes: “The Greensmaster 1021 promises to be a big hit with customers and the show provides the perfect launch platform. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the stand, where our specialist machinery team will be on hand to give help and advice about all our products.”
