Duns powers ahead with new fleet

Duns powers ahead with new fleet

Borders club Duns has recently taken charge of three new Toro machines to help maintain almost 100 acres of turf. And, according to club captain Derek Bates, the equipment is “starting to impress already”.

“The Toro machines were trialled over a number of weeks and it soon became obvious, from the response of head greenkeeper Andy Chambers and his assistant Stuart Thomson, that they ticked all the boxes,” said Derek. “The greens are the highlight of the course thanks to the Greensmaster 3250-D. They are immaculate and visitors are impressed with how fast and slick they are playing. The machine follows the undulations effortlessly, giving a consistent cut and climbs any hills with no problem.”
