Toro Greensmaster wins at World Croquet Championship

By Lucy Ohsten

Toro's popular Greensmaster 1000 mower was voted a winner at this year's World Croquet Championship at The Cheltenham Croquet Club. Lawns manager David Magee bought in the new greens mower to cut his 11 courts for the contest. Toro sports turf equipment distributor Lely also supplied two additional loan machines for the event.

David Magee said: "I wanted the grass cut better, so I visited Eddie Seaward at Wimbledon, who said we couldn't do better than the 1000 because of itsToro_CheltCroquet.jpg

David added. "We cut the courts every day at 6am, so we were aware of disturbing our neighbours, but the machines were incredibly quiet. They cut beautifully and faultlessly, and as a result the courts became progressively faster - the players commented on it. This was due to the quality of the cut and grooming. We've seen huge improvements in the courts already. Full marks all round."
