SOUTH COAST club Ham Manor has signed a five-year machinery lease deal with Reesink Turfcare and Toro, while also getting a new irrigation system in the process.
In order are a Reelmaster 3575-D, TriFlex 3400, two Workman MDX-D and one Workman HDX utility vehicles, the Multi Pro Workman sprayer and ProPass 200 topdresser. These machines add to the Reelmaster 3100-D and two Groundmaster 360 Quad Steers acquired over the last 18 months.
“You place a lot of trust in your package partner and ask a lot from them so it’s important to feel comfortable they can deliver,” said course manager Paul Brown. “I’ve used Toro equipment before and had no doubt that they’d deliver for us but the primary drivers behind this decision were the trust we have in Reesink’s area retail sales manager Jon Cole and Toro’s unequivocal reliability.”
Complementing the machinery lease deal, Ham Manor has completed phase one of its irrigation installation, which is part of a three-phase process to renew the entire system.
