Countrywide Central Increases Grounds Maintenance Fleet
By Peter Driver
Countrywide Central, a division of Countrywide Grounds Maintenance, has taken delivery of new turf equipment for use in major utility and commercial contracts in Yorkshire and the Midlands.
They new equipment, which includes a further Ransomes Parkway triple mower and three Ransomes ZT220 zero turn ride on rotary mowers, has been purchased from Palmers Groundcare of Selby, the latest addition to the Ransomes Jacobsen dealer network.
Commenting on the recent additions John Passfield, a director at Countrywide Central said,
"We have a selection of Ransomes ride on cylinder mowers including the 5-unit Commanders and 3-unit Highways and Parkways. They have performed really well for us and the service from Palmers, and Glen Sawyer in particular, has been first class.
"We have been replacing our existing Hustler rotaries and looked at several alternatives. We selected the Ransomes ZT because we find that the 21hp diesel engined machines give us as much productivity as comparable 30hp machines. They are very compact and manoeuvrable and very competitively priced. Couple this with the service support from Palmers and the package was right for us."
