Die Kubota-stal spog met ’n paar voortreflike nuwelinge. Dit sluit in ’n nuwe trekker, ’n laaigraaf en ’n nutsvoertuig vir die plaas. Eerste is die B2650-trekker. Dit is die verbeterde weergawe van die B2530-trekker.
Kubota se kompakte trekkers is ’n staatmaker vir boere wat groot take in klein spasies moet verrig. Veral groente- en vrugteboere vind baat by die gemak waarmee Kubota se B-reeks in nou boorde en tonnels kan werk.
Roger Innes and Ivan van Heerden, course managers at Bushwillow and Firethorn, the two well-known courses at the Randpark Golf Club, have decided to add Club Car Carryall utility vehicles to their existing fleet. Club Car is distributed in South Africa by Smith Power Equipment (SPE).
Roger says that the main reasons for choosing Club Car are the exceptional operational efficiency of the Club CarCarryalls and the fact that he and the Randpark teams have been working with SPE for many years and have been more than satisfied with their excellent service.
Changing to Club Car is quite common these days and Bryanston Country Club (BCC) can now be added to this fast-growing list. Club Car is distributed in South Africa by Smith Power equipment (SPE).
As part of BCC’s latest equipment upgrade programme, it recently took delivery of a range of new equipment from SPE. The equipment includes 22 Club Car electric golf carts; 2 x Toro Reelmaster 5510 fairway mowers, a Toro Greensmaster 3400 tee mower and a Redexim Turf Tidy fairway sweeper.
With the success of Kubota tractors worldwide and particularly in South Africa over the past few years in agriculture, one tends to forget how well Kubota has performed in smaller applications. One such example is Muldersdrift-based Random Harvest Indigenous Nurseries whose owner, Linda De Luca, says that her fleet of Kubota’s has been “life-saving”.
“I have had our Kubota tractors for about five months now and I use them to move product around the nursery, to pull orders, to move rubbish from one area to another and for a host of other daily tasks that must be done in the nursery environment. I shudder to think for how long we did all this with wheel barrows!” says Linda.
The instantly recognizable Toro range of equipment in red livery can be seen operating on premier golf courses around the world. Lionel Coetzee of Smith Power Equipment, the agent for the famous brand. talks to Golf Industry SA.
Any major supplier to the golf business is well-qualified to make an educated assessment regarding the overall well being of golf clubs. Despite the fact that almost everyone in the golf industry believes that we are in for a tough time, Lionel Coetzee, a director of Smith Power, remains upbeat. “We are fortunate in having the unwavering support of our suppliers, and Toro USA together with other manufacturers do everything in their power to ensure that we have excellent backup,” he says. “Of course having healthy relationships with the people within our industry is so important.”
