We recently received a nice influx of golf course maintenance equipment from Toro at Granite Bay and wanted to share it with our members. You can probably imagine it takes allot of different types of equipment to maintain a golf course and it all eventually wears out. We have mowers and blowers and rollers and aerifyers, just to name a few. It also takes allot of utility vehicles to move GCM workers, tools and materials around the golf course as well as moving debris and such off the golf course.

This recent influx of new equipment are primarily replacements for older pieces of equipment giving us more flexibility and backup when we experience unexpected malfunctions which happens more then we would like. Below are some close-ups and descriptions of the recent pieces of equipment we received for those who are interested.
|Toro Triflex greens mower. This is our second new triplex greens mower that will really help when we want to double cut greens. This mower is used exclusively on the putting surfaces.|
|Toro ProForce Turbine Blower. This is our second turbine blower giving us backup flexibility as well as two to use in the fall for leaf removal. They are controlled remotely by the operator via radio.|

Most of our equipment is equipped with wireless hour meters that communicate with our equipment maintenance program called MyTurf. It's basically a cloud based record keeping platform that automatically produces work orders for our mechanics so we can easily keep up on preventive services.
Thanks as always for your support as without it we wouldn't be able to continually upgrade our all important golf course maintenance equipment.
