New look for new generation of TYM tractors

The manufacturer's rebrand and redesign brings with it new engines, superior ergonomics, operator-focused interiors and a robust and aesthetically designed exterior to set TYM apart, says TYM's official UK distributor Reesink Turfcare.

Alastair Rowell, UK sales manager for turfcare equipment at Reesink, says: "TYM has been through a major overhaul to prepare for the next 70 years, showing its commitment to investing in engineering that drives performance, and the result is a customer-focused redesign that provides versatility and value.

"It is a top-to-tail rebrand. There is even a new logo, redesigned to feature the three letters 'T', 'Y', 'M' in the shape of the head of the Korean tiger from Mount Paektu. The design featuring animal imagery was chosen to combine beauty and technology, visually representing powerful machinery that is both agile and elegant while looking sharp and distinct."

And it's not just TYM who has been on a customer-focused journey, Reesink has too. Alastair explains: "At Reesink we went through a similar process of listening to our customers and streamlining our TYM offering into four favourites. There's a horsepower option suitable for all fine turf and sports requirements and attachments available to ensure all jobs are catered for."

The range from Reesink is now comprised of four customer favourites, the 19hp T194, the 25.3hp T255, the 37hp T395 and 55hp T555, and offers a wide range of solutions for the UK's sports venues and golf courses, contractors, landscapers and equestrian customers.

In response to the EU's emission regulations, three of these models available from Reesink Turfcare - the T255, T395 and T555 - come with a Stage V compliant diesel engine, which limits the amount of particulate matter produced in an effort to reduce air pollution. At 19hp, the engine of the T194 is small enough to not have to comply with these regulations.

Alastair continues: "We chose this selection of tractors because it offers the choice of subcompact and compact models with a range of horsepowers, plus there are some clever features to all. The T255, for example, is Stage V compliant but avoids the need for expensive exhaust treatments such as a DPF filter, keeping costs down for customers. It's also now able to synchronise the HST pedals with the engine throttle for much simpler and less tiring operation. Plus, following customer feedback, it now comes with one set of spool valves as standard, rather than as an optional accessory.

"The T555 produces more power than its predecessor while still maximising on fuel efficiency, while the updated panel has a new digital element that shows the tractor hours, fuel gauge and information on the engine, and emission system make for much-improved user control."
