Birmingham, England: Asian Golf Industry Federation member Bernhard and Company has announced enhancements to several Bernhard Grinders models.
The Anglemaster 4000 and 4000DXi now offer a choice of configuration, allowing the manufacturer’s datum point to be used to achieve recommended bed-knife angles.
Other highlights include two new, side-by-side drawers at the front of the machine, ideal for keeping important tools and accessories organised and close at hand.
This user-friendly arrangement shifted the coolant reservoir and main electrics to the left and right legs, respectively. These redesigned legs also allow machines to be moved with a pallet jack rather than a forklift.
All Express Dual and Dual Master models now feature improved lift tables that do not require platform extensions. This modification is especially useful for machines mounted on wheel kits.
In addition, the Express Dual 4000, like its Anglemaster 4000 and 4000DXi counterparts, has an hours-run meter that displays when the machine is turned on. A loose reel kit for the Dual Master is also new.
Steve Nixon, International Sales Manager for Bernhard, said: “Continuous improvement and never resting on laurels are long-time Bernhard traits. We’re confident these enhancements to our category-leading products will make them even more indispensable to turf-care professionals worldwide.”
Updates which may seem relatively minor have a significant impact on machine performance and resulting turf health. Bernhard’s attention to detail is frequently cited by long-time partners as a primary motivator of their brand loyalty.
Bernhard Grinders are pivotal to maintaining pristine playing surfaces at nearly 75 of Golf Digest’s Top-100 US courses and many number one-ranked courses on Golfweek’s state-by-state ‘Best You Can Play’ rankings.
