East Kilbride buzzing with new ProFlex

The Proflex is a popular mower for so many due to the independent floating decks. Each has shock absorbers to reduce deck bounce as the mower travels over uneven ground and the unique four-way rotating swivel hitch allows the tractor and mower to travel across uneven terrain without affecting one another resulting in a first rate contour cut without scalping.

East Kilbride, one of central Scotland’s most challenging and picturesque courses has just purchased a brand new Progressive Proflex 120 courtesy of Hamilton Brothers. On a course located near Glasgow which gets and average rain fall of 991mm a year and 18 hours of sunlight from May to September it was imperative for them to get a mower that not only gives a top quality cut and keeps up with the grass growth but delivers these results even in the wet conditions.

Scott Reid the head greenkeeper could not be happier with their new machine. “Once we saw this machine demo there was absolutely no way we wanted anything else. The grass drop off is second to none, literally never seen anything like it. Even in the wet it distributes the clippings perfectly. We have had mowers before that would leave an awful mess behind but the Proflex is a dream.”

A little known secret is an opening above the spindle which aids distribution of grass. Thanks to this feature that draws the air, it creates a vacuum type effect that then disperses the clippings out almost like a mist.

Another feature you will find on the ProFlex which East Kilbride were excited for it the industry exclusive Pro Lift-N-Turn™ system which allows the operator to temporarily raise the decks off the ground without stopping and with the PTO still engaged; all without fear of doing any component damage or impacting belt life. “The Lift-N-Turn is a really great feature that we were particularly excited about and none of our guys here have had any problems when it comes to operating this brilliant bit of kit. The Proflex has been a great choice for us.”
