stand out

Facilities management company, HTS Group Limited, invested in two Toro
LT-F3000 mowers, after being impressed by the triple flails at last year’s
SALTEX show.

At SALTEX 2017, Toro’s LT-F3000 triple flail mower stood out from the crowd to Harlow Council-founded facilities management company, HTS Group Limited. In fact, the company, which deals with grass cutting and landscape maintenance for the postcode, was so impressed it promptly invested in two machines.

Andrew Bradley, landscapes manager at HTS Group, explains: “The LT-F3000 not only stood out with its signature Toro red, but for looking professional and robust. After making some enquiries, it was clear that it would tick all of our boxes, too.

"Post-show, I got in touch with our local Reesink Turfcare representative, Danny Lake, who took me on a tour around the Spellbrook Toro Factory in Bishop Stortford. Seeing machines hand built before my eyes convinced me of their quality and robustness."

There was no doubt, Toro was the way to go.

Two LT-F3000 flail mowers join HTS Group’s fleet of 19 grounds machines and replace a 12-year-old cylinder mower to maintain medium-sized open spaces across the Essex district too small for a tractor-drawn mower and too large for a rotary.

The LT-F3000 is built to manage all different locations from wide open spaces to narrow verges and wooded areas.

Another box ticked for Andrew is that the LT-F3000 is road legal. He says: “With most sites six miles away, and their proximity to busy roads making parking a nightmare, being able to drive our machines to jobs is a must. A bonus with Toro’s triple flail is that it has a good road speed of 15.5mph.”

And the machines are proving their worth in action too, meaning Andrew’s show instincts were well-founded: “The Toros make light work of the grass and even leave a beautiful striped finish to really top it all off.”

Andrew and the HTS team are impressed with the “beautiful striped finish” of the Toro LT-F3000.

Jeff Anguige, national sales manager at Reesink, says that this is a perfect example of why show attendance is important: “This illustrates just why we attend shows and why customers should come. Seeing is so often believing, and the LT-F3000 impressed HTS so much they promptly bought two. I can only imagine how much easier that made the procurement process!”
