0 It's a one-stop-shop for the saints

PR4157 Southampton FCSouthampton Football Club is the latest to benefit from Toro distributor Lely UK now also distributing TYM compact tractors.

For the club has recently taken delivery of a TYM T293 and T503 as part of a one-stop-shop at Lely that included new Toro turf machinery, too.

Andy Gray, grounds manager, has long been a fan of TYM tractors with two looking after the Staplewood training ground for the last 10 years.

Andy says: "The two TYMs I've had for the past decade have always been brilliant. There's never been a problem and as they are such a good fit with Toro machines I didn't consider any other make."

"I was placing an order for some new Toro machinery and with Lely now distributing TYM it made sense to get a couple of new tractors at the same time. It makes life a lot easier when you can do a one-stop-shop!"

The T293 has been bought to work at Saints' St Mary's Stadium, where it will be used for brushing and seeding the pitch and towing the lighting rigs, among a host of tasks.

The latest and most powerful of the under 30hp TYM tractors, the T293 model was also chosen because it has a front loader which is ideal for clearing snow from the pitch if ever needed.

The T503 will be kept at the Staplewood training ground to help with aerating, brushing, spraying and fertilising. It's a timely purchase, as plans to increase the size of the training ground to 11 pitches have recently been approved.

"The demands and expectations there are with regards to pitch preparation, maintenance and presentation for both the stadium and training grounds are rigorous and high.

There's a reason why I stick with Toro and TYM time after time and that's because I know I can rely on them to get the job done to the highest standards.

Even though I rarely, if ever, need it, the back-up and after-sales service you get from Lely is reliable and efficient, and a reassurance to have."
