MAJOR Showcases New Amenity Machinery at UK Trade Shows
- MAJOR to launch a trailed 7.3m (24’) Swift Rollermower at IOG Saltex 2019 (30-31 October)
- New CS Pro rotary deck for Compact tractors to debut at Holiday Park & Resort Innovation Show 2019 (6-7 November)
Taking centre stage at Saltex 2019, the most important trade show for grounds maintenance and turf professionals, is the new 7.3m (24’) Swift Rollermower suitable for broad acre landscaping and turf/sod farms. Phil Cole of Cotswold Turf Care in Stroud is the contract groundkeeper of the prestigious Cirencester Park Polo Club. The trailed unit is used to keep the polo grounds of the historic club in pristine shape. The wings can fold to under 9-feet for road transport, making it ideal for Phil and his team to maintain school grounds, football and rugby pitches and commercial properties all over Gloucestershire.
“The MAJOR Swift MJ71-730T is a great performer and always leaves an excellent finish,” says Phil. “The front and rear rollers ensure we leave a level and striped finish at precisely the right height of cut, every time. It levels the ground back down to its original condition after we’ve had eight or ten horses running over it.”
Alongside the large Swift rollermower, MAJOR is introducing a new cutting deck specifically for Compact tractors. The CS Pro is a professional mower designed for everyday turf maintenance on residential and lifestyle complexes, estate lawns, parks and sports grounds. Its patented double-chop blade system shreds material finely and evenly without leaving windrows. A heavy duty full-length rear roller limits scalping and ensures a level, striped finish.
The gearbox driveline means this mower can easily handle dense vegetation and long grass with ease, making it suitable for heavy scrub and stubble management. With fewer wearing parts than a flail, the mower is low maintenance which minimises overall total cost of ownership.
As with all MAJOR mowers, the 1.5m (5’) deck is made of high-performance StrenxTM 700 MC structural steel that is galvanised to EN ISO standards, resulting in a premium mower that outlasts the competition.
The new CS Pro will be featured at the upcoming Holiday Park & Resort Innovation Show, Europe’s largest event dedicated to holiday businesses, held at the NEC Birmingham from 6-7 November. The show runs alongside the Farm Business Innovation Show, the diversification and innovation event for farmers and landowners.
These new machines widen the MAJOR range of professional grounds maintenance equipment that already includes the popular Swift rollermowers for sports grounds and parklands, the Synergy outfront replacement deck, the Contoura golf and turf mower, and the mini Cyclone Deck. MAJOR mowers are built to be durable, versatile and low maintenance. With front and rear-mounted configurations that deliver the all-important presentation in both wet and dry conditions, we have a machine that suits the needs of local authorities, sports clubs, golf courses, turf/sod farms, private estates, resorts, and theme parks.
