Albar Landscapes Ltd is one of the most respected names in the UK landscaping and turf supply industry, with over 30 years' experience. The company provides a wide range of landscape services and the client list includes house developers, business and retail parks, local authorities and schools.
Its sister company Scotlawn, supplies these clients with the highest quality turf, grown on the most fertile land in Scotland. The growing turf at the company's farms is mown throughout the year using a MAJOR 18000GR Roller Mower. The team at Scotlawn has an immense mowing schedule and the demands on the mowing equipment are severe.
The annual costs of blade regrinds and general set up and maintenance expenses associated with running a cylinder mower makes it uneconomical to use this type of mower on a day to day basis. The MAJOR 18000GR Roller Mower achieves a premium cut and leaves a professional striped finish all while working at speed.
"We have used other mowers in the past," explained Gordon McMurdo, Director at Albar Landscapes Ltd. "However, the finish given by the MAJOR 18000GR was far superior to any other machine," he comments. The 5.4m cutting width allows Mr. McMurdo and his operators to cover over 15 acres an hour. "We are very impressed with the quality of cut and the reliability of this mower," concluded Mr McMurdo.
