Grassland maintenance happens every day here from March until the end of October. We have to prepare different sites for varying purposes. For example, the car-park areas need to have a longer finish - about two inches, whereas the gardens and hotel amenities will require a much shorter finish. We used to use cylinder mowers for much of the work, but these have become very expensive to maintain both in terms of replacement costs, blade sharpening and reliability down-time. Three years ago, we invested in a Major Synergy deck that fit to our John Deere outfront power unit and we love it! The Synergy is easy to set-up for different cutting heights. It doesn’t need anywhere near the maintenance of the cylinder mower and yet leaves the perfect, striped finish, no matter what we are cutting.
