Welsh club receives new mowers
Abergele Golf Club in North Wales has taken advantage of a flexible finance offer from Lely UK in a deal that’s seen the coastal course benefit from two new mowers.
Investing £80k while drawing on a buy-now-pay-later finance scheme, the club has worked with UK Toro distributor, Lely UK, to bring in the all new Toro Greensmaster Triflex Hybrid 3420 and a Toro Reelmaster 5610-D with cab.
The new delivery will replace older models, and Abergele’s course manager and greenkeeper Darren Anderson says the easy-payment plan has allowed the club to upgrade its machines without compromising cash flow.
“We opted to take advantage of Lely’s flexible finance offer, which allows us greater financial flexibility and enables us to get the new machines we need now as we edge close to the height of the season,” said Anderson.
“With our USGA greens, we strive to be one of the best courses in Wales, which means we need the best equipment. Toro are the best; they have a sturdy build quality, are reliable and have a high quality finish. I also like the way they hold their value.
“I’ve been here for 23 years and we’ve always had Toro – we wouldn’t use anything else.
“The new hybrid mower is great. We really like the new way the cutting units handle contours and undulations of the green, and find we’re getting a better quality of cut and after-cut appearance because of that. The cutting units are also easily accessed and adjusted, saving time for the operators, along with reduced grease points with the introduction of sealed bearings.”
