Having signed a Toro exclusivity deal three years ago, Royal Liverpool Golf Club recently upgraded its Toro fleet to include two Workman e2065s and is now raving about its new electric utility vehicles.
The greenkeeping team at the 18-hole course at Hoylake in the Wirral had been happy with the old petrol versions of Toro's popular mid-duty utility vehicle and so were a little sceptical about the arrival of its electric counterparts at first. But the benefits of this powerful, high-performance vehicle soon won the team over.
Says links manager Craig Gilholm: "When we first got the machines, the greenkeepers were a bit unsure about them being electric, but now they prefer them to the petrol models! They're so quiet and comfortable. They're a pleasure for the guys to use as it makes such a change being on a quiet machine. They're just fantastic."
The most recent addition to Toro's mid-duty fleet, the Workman e2065 electric model packs all the power and performance of Toro's mid-duty petrol-driven models, but in a quieter, cleaner and more environmentally-friendly package. This is a significant benefit for greenkeepers looking to reduce the environmental impact of their vehicles.
As part of an ongoing machinery replacement deal, the club also took delivery of a heavy-duty Workman 3300-D with 200 Sprayer, plus two Greensmaster 3250-Ds and two Reelmaster 5410-D mowers. "All the new additions are great," Craig concludes.
