Better grass presentation follows investment in new collection system
By Peter Driver
Further investment in new grass collectors will ensure a much higher standard of grass presentation for residents in the Grampian region who fall under the control of The Moray Council.
The Council has purchased two Wiedenmann MCS Compact grass collection systems for their small Kubota tractors, ensuring that best value is obtained from these pocket workhorses. These tractors are used primarily for winter work, clearing snow from roads and pathways in the region, but when fitted with cutting decks and grass collection systems they can now be utilised throughout the year.
Leslie Thomson, Fleet Services Manager commented,
"Fitting cutting decks and the collector systems to our fleet of tractors means that we can use them throughout the spring, summer and autumn months for grass maintenance duties."
Ken Kennedy, Lands and Park Officer added, "We take great pride in our parks and open spaces throughout the district and this new equipment will ensure that we continue to maintain them to the highest possible standards, thereby providing a pleasant environment for everyone. The MCS Compacts remove virtually all the grass clippings leaving a much higher standard of presentation for our residents and the many visitors who come to the area."
The cutting decks and collectors were purchased from Inverurie based Alpha Plus Groundcare, the local dealer for Wiedenmann UK who are located at Inchinnan on the outskirts of Glasgow.
