0 Always something interesting to see ...

Saltex 2013 will once again see The Grass Group exhibiting a good array of established machinery - and several new models too! With autumn around the corner Groundsmen will be looking to grounds maintenance, and Open Space Managers to the collection of the expected bumper crop of leaves! Neither will not be disappointed with a trip to the Grass Group stand.

Pride of place will be ATTs' pedestrian mower - the INFiNiSystem™. Recently awarded the Quiet Mark for its low noise output from the battery power capability, The Grass Group will be showing a brand new cutting cassette in the 'Razor Cutter'. This cassette is non-carbide tipped and can be reversed in order to achieve a consistently sharp cut. It will join the line-up of nine other cassettes to create the ultimate in turf maintenance.

Next up is the updated B7 blower from Netherlands manufacturer, Trilo. This three point hitch blower is your best choice when it comes to blowing leaves, litter, standing water and debris off sports grounds, fields, artificial turf, golf courses, urban and private greens and the like. For 2013 a new model has been introduced where the standard hydraulic operated 180 degree reverse spout is replaced with a straight spout. This adaptation allows for use by any compact tractor as hydraulics will not be needed to move the reverse spout. In addition to a reduced purchase price, the unit becomes even more compact and will stay inside the tractor dimensions.

Over in the Progressive corner the Grass Group will be demonstrating how the universal acclaimed Pro-Flex 120B has been re-designed to achieve a lower cost of operation. This contour mower has a 10 feet cutting width and is now equipped with rubber-damped, automatic belt tensioners and maintenance free bushings to increase belt durability and life.

This modification also eliminates 25% of the grease points compared to previous models and means that routine servicing is faster and easier - leaving more time for mowing! As well as lower maintenance costs, the Pro-Flex 120B now has the industry exclusive Pro Lift-N-Turn™ system as standard which allows the operator to temporarily raise the decks slightly off the ground without stopping and with the PTO still engaged. This makes it easier to operate than ever before!
