Minneapolis, United States: Toro has introduced the all-new STEALTH Series Kit, the newest addition to its feature-rich INFINITY Series golf sprinkler.
The STEALTH Series Kit offers an innovative solution that improves playing conditions by enabling turfgrass to grow above the sprinkler head, creating a seamless and continuous area of turf that minimises sprinkler interference during play on the golf course.
The STEALTH Series Kit quickly attaches to any INFINITY Series sprinkler, enabling installation below grade while promoting turf growth directly atop the sprinkler.
The innovative STEALTH Kit with its patent-pending design eliminates disruption and damage to the course, while retaining the INFINITY Series Smart Access feature that allows for easy access to all adjustments and other internal components.
Additionally, the STEALTH Series Kit allows grass and root growth through technological innovations that include a turf cup design that encourages water drainage to prevent root rot. With 1.5 inches of room to grow, roots are able to retain optimum turfgrass health.
“The STEALTH Series Kit can really help golf course management elevate overall game play of the course,” said Jim Wright, Senior Product Manager at Toro, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“With the integration of this new feature, the issue of sprinkler interference is essentially eliminated.”
The STEALTH Series Kit will be available internationally in the summer of 2016.
