The flexblade is designed to hug the contours of undulating greens enabling it to collect flawlessly in even the worst conditions. This implement will save many hours of manual work or an extra operation with heavy cumbersome equipment. It collects cleanly and when used as an AERATOR attachment, over 60% of the cores enter the collector without touching the ground.

Surface disruption is minimised and the greens are left clean and ready for top dressing and play.

Pleasantly successful GLAS Showcase and IRISH DEALER takes stock of new GROUNDSMAN two and four wheel drive TURF CUTTERS

Following the pleasantly successful Glas Ireland Garden Landscape and Amenity Showcase in Citywest Dublin on the 19th July where we exhibited a range of Groundsman Turf Sod Cutters, Turf Aerators and Soil Core Collectors we travelled south. Pat Geaney of Geaney & O'Neil who operates his Garden and Sports Turf machinery business out of Glanmire Co. Cork is a man with decades of experience selling and servicing equipment and is not easily impressed. If you want an honest opinion about a piece of kit just ask Pat Geaney but be prepared for a reality check, the answer may not always be what you want to hear. We are delighted that Pat has finally given the thumbs up to the new Groundsman TMC24 and TMC46 two and four wheel drive Turf Sod Cutters and is now stocking both models. Pat who endorsed the highly respected Groundsman 345 pedestrian aerator ten years ago was particularly impressed with the robust design and serviceability of this new product. All the hard work in the Groundsman factory just two hundred and fifty miles up the road in Ballymoney Co Antrim over the past ten years developing and perfecting this product is now really paying off. These new models have effortless cutting ability in all conditions and have the lowest hand arm vibration levels (HAV) on the market verified by the factory and independently. This is being reflected in growing demand for the product throughout the UK and rapidly growing export sales into Europe, the Middle and Far East. A new distributor has just been appointed in Australia, more news about that coming soon.

Turf Multi Cutter TMC 2WD

The new TMC 2WD Turf Cutter by GROUNDSMAN INDUSTRIES has moved Turf Cutters for hire and landscaping to the next level.

Groundsman Industries have been researching and developing its range of Turf Cutters for the past eight years. The new TMC 2WD encompasses all the knowledge and experience Groundsman have gained over that period to produce a product which really does tick all the boxes.

Feed-back from customers over the years has been taken on board, the positive features have been brought forward and the negative have been addressed. The new Groundsman model TMC 2WD is the protegee of this.

Groundsman Industries have approached this development project in the belief that the ideal machine for the landscape and hire markets must have good performance, be reliable, simple and safe to operate and have a low running cost plus the bottom line, it must represent value for money.

After extended and intensive testing and assessment, Groundsman are delighted that this product truly does tick all the boxes. The TMC 2WD Turf multi Cutter is available in 30, 35, 40 or 45cm cutting widths adjustable to 6cm depth. All Groundsman products are covered by a 24 months factory warranty.

TCCO Guillotine Chop-off impresses Isle of Man turf grower.

In September 2007 when Chris Clarke pictured right, of Garden World in the Isle of Man needed to replace his old trusty Turf Cutter he had used for many years on his Turf Farm he searched the internet turned up the Groundsman Industries site. So important and specialised was this piece of kit that Chis boarded a plane and flew to the facory in N.Ireland to check it out. After a tour of the factory and it's in-house research and development facility where the machine was designed, Chris tested the unit in some fine and some very rough turf. Numbers were crunched over a bite to eat and a deal was struck. Chis took delivery of the machine two weeks later. Groundsman Industries are a relatively small company who like the personal touch and some follow- up emails revealed that Chis was not disappointed with his purchase. We enjoyed meeting Chris, he has a quiet but very thorough approach and it would be my guess that if you need some very well nurtured and nicely cut sod to re-turf your garden, sports facility or estate, you could do a lot worse than look at what Garden World in the Isle of Man has to offer.
