Brailsford Golf Club’s Head Greenkeeper Andy Ryder has faced a most testing spring for his tees and greens in particular, but his two Dennis professional cylinder mowers have helped him cope and kept the club’s 180 members happy at the tee and pin. For two years now, Andy has been using a 10-bladed Dennis FT510 with interchangeable cassettes for his tees and an 11-bladed Dennis Razor Ultra on the greens at Brailsford and he swears by them.
Founded in 1895, Prestatyn Cricket Club in North Wales has had a dramatic history, and over the last 20 years Dennis mowers have helped restore the club’s pitch to a standard named the best in the Bridging Finance Solutions Liverpool & District Cricket Competition in 2011. In 1990, the area was hit by the Towyn floods which forced more than 2000 people to be evacuated from their homes when the sea defences failed.
A Razor Ultra 560 bowling green mower from Dennis is proving a hit with the dedicated professional and amateur team who look after the green at Ewhurst Bowls Club in Surrey. Chairman and Green Steward Richard Tabor explains that the top quality greens mower was chosen for its ease of operation, precise cut and superb finish.
Dennis shows its commitment to meeting customers’ needs by unveiling the new Razor Standard at Saltex.
The Dennis range of British manufactured, high quality, professional groundscare products, meets the needs of groundsmen, greenkeepers and gardeners who often have highly individual requirements.
With strict regulations in place to protect worker’s exposure to hand-arm vibration (HAV), professional grounds maintenance equipment manufacturer Dennis, are continually striving to improve their machines in recognition of the need to counteract harmful vibration. Vibration can damage blood vessels and nerves in the fingers, leading to a loss of feeling in the fingers and hands. It can cause the industrial disease ‘vibration white finger’ which, in extreme cases can make it too painful for workers to hold equipment.
Taking a prominent position on the Dennis stand M9 at BTME is the new Razor Ultra 560 mower. The newest addition to Dennis’s range of professional grounds maintenance equipment, the Razor’s development was fine tuned using feedback from greenkeepers and groundsmen after it was previewed at the 2009 event.
Greenkeepers and Golf Course Managers should it a make it a priority to visit Dennis on stand M9 at BTME this year to inspect the new Razor Ultra 560 mower. Developed with input from industry professionals following its exclusive preview at BTME 2009 and designed for a high quality cut on greens and tees, the new 22” mower features an eleven blade cylinder and groomer along with a host of other advanced features.
Dennis launches an exciting new mower at Saltex on stand W58, developed with the help of its customers, who were invited to give their feedback when the design was previewed at BTME this year. The Razor Ultra 560 is an exceptionally versatile cylinder mower for applications ranging from golf greens and tees to cricket pitches and bowling greens.
The proven reliability and excellent finish achieved by his existing Dennis mower made the company’s machines the obvious choice when Nick James, head Groundsman at the Heatons Sports Club, was able to invest in a new mower for his cricket square. Nick is kept busy looking after the turf at the Cheshire club, where he has been based for six years, preparing surfaces for tennis, lacrosse, cricket and rugby.
