Mowing is the primary task of every golf course because turf occupies more than half of the area. The maintained turf of a golf course makes it eye catching as well as suitable for a game play. Grass grows faster and must be mowed on a regular basis from tees, fairway, greens and rough areas. In order to remove the excess of grass from more than 30 hectares of land, you cannot rely on the conventional tools of mowing. Also, a single mowing tool cannot serve the purpose. Top golf course maintenance equipment manufacturer brands like Toro and John Deere have discovered some feasible solutions. The Toro golf course mowers are available in two major categories i.e. reel mowers and rotary mowers. Let’s elaborate on both of them in detail.
These are the conventional models of grass mowing and available in numerous varieties according to the requirement. From a manually operated lawn mower to powerful 5 blade running machine, reel mowers occupy a wide criteria of market. Reels are the blades equipped with a mower that roll horizontally to trim the grass. The number of blades in a reel varies from mower to mower. You can change them according to the requirement of precision. Reel mowers work slowly but they are capable of delivering the best results in all areas. We need reel mowers in the tees box and fairway. Some areas of greens can also be maintained with this Toro golf course equipment.
It is a kind of chopper equipped with rotary blades like helicopters. The blades of a reel mower rotates in order to trim the grass. A rotary mower is capable of working in tougher terrain conditions where reel mowers fail. They require less maintenance and finish the job faster. However, you cannot expect high precision mowing results from a rotary mower.
A golf course needs both rotary and reel mowers to work efficiently and faster. Used turf equipment can also serve the purpose if you are buying them from a reliable certified supplier.
