Harrogate, England: Next month’s BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition (BTME) will see Foley United demonstrate the ideal grinding combination for a fully automated workshop.
Represented by its United Kingdom distributor ProSport UK Ltd, Foley will showcase the AccuPro 633 with AccuTouch 3 Control and 673 bedknife grinders in Harrogate Convention Centre’s Red Hall, Stand 248B.
This professional grinding duo provides top quality cylinder and bedknife grinding, featuring built-in grinding programmes for a quick and accurate OEM grind. The fully automatic grinding process on both machines allows users to do other tasks while the Foley grinders are activated – saving time, money and man-hours.
The latest company to utilise this combination is GGM Groundscare. The Lancashire-based company needed to add grinders to its operation to match a growing franchise. Managing Director Chris Gibson looked to the automation and accuracy of Foley United as the solution.
“We are Baroness dealers and our sales area has recently been extended to cover North and West Yorkshire,” said Gibson. “In line with the growth of this franchise we wanted to invest in the right grinders to make sure we had the best support available for customers. That’s why we got the Foley AccuPro 633 cylinder and 673 bedknife grinders.
“The automation was an important factor because we want to provide our customers with consistent and reliable results. We can do that with the pre-set programmes and give them a very accurate idea of how long grinding will take. That’s something that benefits us from a planning perspective as much as the customer.”
The grinders used by GGM are just two of the Foley range of Relief, Spin and Bedknife machines that have been specifically designed to meet any budget.
