Double TORO launch and sustainable cleaning from REESINK turfcare

Olivia Dixonin Machinery & Mechanics

Reesink Turfcare will launch two new products from Toro and the next big thing for sustainable machinery cleaning at SALTEX.

The ProCore 648s, the new gold standard of greens aeration, will be at SALTEX 2022.

New machinery from Toro is always a big draw in the industry and this year there are two products debuting on stand K080.

The new Toro ProCore 648s builds on the incredible legacy of the ProCore 648 and brings even more innovative features to the time-tested machine that changed the way customers aerate. The s stands for superior - and superior it is.

An updated version of a customer-favourite model, there are more than 10 new patents and all the best features of the 648 customers know and love, with some brand-new enhancements based off operator feedback and Toro's own in-depth studies.

Now, with all the primary controls at the operator's fingertips, this machine can be operated single-handedly. Hole spacing and true tine depth and hole spacing can be set and saved in the InfoCentre and there's a broader range of 5mm (0.25 inches) for the ultimate control.

The new electronically controlled hydrostatic three-wheel drive ensures consistent hole spacing when aerifying up or down hill and the delay mode minimises disruption of the playing surface and guarantees maximum tine depth on the first entries into the soil. It allows operators to easily target where they want the coring head to drop or raise using the leading edge of the front tyre as a marker, making starting and ending passes or going over an in-ground hurdle like a sprinkler much easier.

All ProCore 648 accessories are compatible with the ProCore 648s and can be used interchangeably.

Reesink Turfcare will also unveil the latest powerhouse from Toro to tackle all terrains: the new Toro Workman UTX 4x4. Built to withstand all environments including ice and snow, this robust four-wheel drive, full-sized utility vehicle can handle curbs, inclines, hillsides, slopes and drops and has a high ground clearing (25.4cm/10ins).

With 25 percent more cargo capacity than that of others in its class and a towing capacity of up to 2000lbs it delivers the ultimate productivity. It's road-ready and comes with a proprietary speed control system to guarantee the right speed and power for the job at hand, meaning customers can choose between lower RPMs for lower fuel consumption and sound in sensitive areas, or higher RPMs for more power to haul a heavier load up hills and inclines.

Reesink Turfcare is also bringing back the Toro Groundsmaster 3300 with its innovative flail attachment. The GM3300 on its own can deliver year-round productivity and multiple cutting options, cope easily with longer, coarser, dry or wet grass and combat extended mowing cycles and it was this that immediately caught the market's attention. But when paired with the fine-cut flail attachment option the machine can cut two ways as well and this sort of innovation from Toro guarantees the kind of productivity customers today demand.

New to Reesink Turfcare's offering and the next big thing for sustainable cleaning of machinery is Bio-Circle GT Maxi, the parts cleaner that requires no water and eliminates pollutant run-off into the water system. This provides customers with the solution for a VOC-free, pH neutral cleaning option that's gentle on the environment but powerful enough to remove grease, oil, grass contamination, whiteline paint and fertiliser. So, for water-controlled usage with a hose and brush attachment and double-walled tank to minimise heat loss, look no further than stand K080.

Finishing off Reesink Turfcare's range at SALTEX is TYM's T395, which although compact is powerful enough for a wide variety of groundscare jobs. It's Stage V compliant and multifunctional especially when coupled with an attachment such as an AgriMetal blower, also at the show.

Visitors to SALTEX can see all this - and more - on stand K080.
