We are looking forward to Saltex 2023, Europe’s largest turf management show for grounds care professionals, on 1&2 November 2023 at the NEC Birmingham. Come to our stand (J112) to check out the machinery and technologies for sports turf professionals and contractors looking to improve performance on and off the pitch.
CS Pro fills a gap in the compact mowing market
Will Parker of Parkers Pitches in Suffolk delivers sports turf management services across East Anglia. He is contracted to mow the 7-hectare Ipswich Rugby Club, about 30 miles away from their Woolpit depot. Their 1.9m roller mower wasn’t getting through the ground quick enough.
It was time to find a wider mower that would be able to deliver higher output without compromising on quality of cut. It also had to be transportable by trailer.
The 3.0m CS Pro fits the bill.
“With this mower we are able to save fuel and time,” enthuses Will. “With the 3.0m CS Pro we can cut this site in 4 to 5 hours. It used to take a whole day! Now we can go to a second site on the same day which saves a massive amount of time and effort for us.”
Triple gang mower with only 45hp
Also on display is the high performance Major Contoura golf and sports mower. Suitable for 45hp tractors and above, the Contoura is an agile mower delivering a quality finish on grounds where undulations could pose challenges. The gearbox driveline eliminates problems associated with belt-driven mowers while delivering consistent cut in wet and dry conditions.
The Contoura is suited for golf rough and fairways, as well as sports fields. The MJ76-360 is the choice mower keeping the airfields at Bicester Heritage trimmed at 50mm.
Swift roller mowers
The Major Swift Roller Mower range continues its popularity as the choice mower for grounds maintenance on sports grounds and turf applications. The gearbox driveline powers each rotor fitted with two blades. The blades convert from rigid blade to swinging blade offering extra versatility cutting in fine and rough conditions. Full length rollers follow ground contours and eliminates scalping.
Essex-based Foxes Produce purchased the winged Major Swift in 3-point linkage to maintain 30-cares of its grass car park. “After having used the Major for many passes, the difference in grass and ground condition has improved remarkably over the flail system,” remarks Guy French. “The rollers help compact the ground. The grass is not only evenly cut, but is shredded and clippings disappear into the turf very quickly.”
Presenting Major Cyclone at Saltex
Contractors looking for more robust mowing solutions can examine the Major Cyclone Rotary Mower. Heavy duty gearboxes power rotors fitted with four blades for ‘blender-style’ shredding. Rotors spaced 2 ¼ feed apart double the number of heads found in batwing mowers ensure all material is cut cleanly and evenly spread across the width of the machine.
This heavy duty mower does the work of a flail at a fraction of the hp and fuel required, making it cost effective solutions when tackling paddock maintenance, conservation areas and parklands.
“We use the Cyclone at Heartwood Forest for maintaining the trails and open spaces and it leaves an excellent finish,” enthuses Jamie Burrows in Hertfordshire. “In the wildflower meadows, we go in with the Cyclone to cut and mulch all the material before it’s collected at the end of the season.”
The 4.2m Major Cyclone will be on display at Saltex.
