NEWS & EVENTS
Latest products, firm favourites and brand new launches, under-wraps for now, from Toro turfcare machinery, Toro irrigation controllers and sprinklers, Otterbine pond and lake aeration systems and TYM compact tractors, it will be, says Holly Jones, marketing manager at Reesink Turfcare, a busy show for the company formerly known as Lely Turfcare.
“Historically we have alternated between a full line-up and a smaller one at SALTEX, but the show last year was really successful so we have decided to return with our biggest line-up yet. It’s been a few years since Toro’s irrigation and Otterbine products have been at SALTEX, but we have seen a rise in interest from our groundscare customers in these areas and it’s exciting to have representation from all our brands at the show.”
The line-up from the Toro groundscare range includes the highly productive, heavy-duty Toro LT-F3000 triple, which launched at the show last year, the Groundsmaster 360 zero-turn mower with Quad-Steer all-wheel-drive steering, Groundsmaster 7210 rotary mower with the industry’s toughest spindle assembly and the Groundsmaster 4000 with SmartPower which adjusts engine speed to the cutting conditions to maintain optimal power to the blades.
From Toro’s irrigation range, the intuitive technology of the Lynx control system and Smart Access of Infinity sprinklers will be on show to demonstrate how two products can bring maximum performance with minimal effort. Also on show, the Flex 55, TS90 and T7 sprinklers.
Whether it’s aerating systems and fountains to accessories that enhance water features, Otterbine provides a versatile, cost-effective way to prevent or treat poor water quality through efficient circulation, helping maintain optimum oxygen levels to keep water clean and healthy. New to the range and on show is the Air Flo 3, the third generation of the brand’s diffused aeration system range, which cleans water without affecting the surface – perfect for recreational ponds or lakes. Joining that is the Fractional five-in-one aerating system, which has the highest performance rate of any fractional aerator on the market and is Otterbine’s best-selling aerator for maintaining water quality at healthy levels in small and medium ponds.
Completing the line-up is the ever-popular TYM T503 compact tractor. A firm favourite with groundscare customers working on big projects, thanks to a long list of features including foldable ROPS, rear wiper, projection head lamps, dual air filter, and hydrostatic power steering.
Holly concludes by saying: “As well as all of the above, we’re also expecting two new products to launch at this year’s show. SALTEX provides the perfect launch platform and we look forward to welcoming everyone to the stand to see the new additions to the market and meet our specialist groundscare machinery team who will be on hand to give help and advice about all our products.”
