Cylinder sharpening and machinery servicing
The photograph above shows one of the Fairway mower cutting units after the cylinder and new bottom blade has been sharpened. Over the winter period all of the various cutting units, totaling 25, have there cylinders and bottom blades re-sharpened using our own cylinder grinder. The relief grinder was purchased in 2007 and has been a big asset over the years enabling sharpening of the cutting units when required during the year without having to be sent to an outside source.
During the winter months all of the maintenance machinery is serviced in-house with necessary oil and filter changes and bearing replacement carried out. Again this saves funds not having to send equipment away for maintenance work.
