Rotary mowers for Ground and Greenkeeping

 

The demand for high quality finish mowing often conflicts with tightening budgets, but within the Progressive rotary mowers  for ground and greenkeeping, several models do meet that challenge. The mowers are designed to follow the ground conditions found in school yards, recreation areas, and golf courses (both fairways and roughs) and produce a high quality finish cut. The total cost of operation is low, thanks in part to the use of a common utility tractor. On the one hand, this means lower capital outlay than a self-contained mower. And on top of that it implies an increased utilization of the existing tractor. When you are not mowing, the mower can be quickly disconnected from the tractor, increasing the utilization of the tractor for other tasks. Similarly, reconnection is quick and simple. Now that’s value!
