Ransomes launches kit to free up technician time

Ransomes Jacobsen has launched a product that will make adjustments to its mowers faster and easier, it says.

Time savings offered by the TrueSet cutting unit came from a bottom blade-to-cylinder adjuster, said the firm. This could be changed at two points with a gear that moved the bottom block 0.0254mm with a click.

"Technicians are under more pressure to get more done in less time," said product manager Lee Kristensen. "The idea behind the cutting unit is to give them more time to work on other kit and projects.

"When the technician hears that click he knows exactly how far the bottom blade has moved and this takes the guesswork out of the adjustment saving time on daily maintenance routines."

The unit will be available on Eclipse2 pedestrian greens mowers, Greens King IV, GP400 and Eclipse 322 riding greens mowers, the LF550 and SLF-1880 fairway mowers.

I will not be importing oaks this season. Will you?

I find myself in a difficult situation. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be present to hear details of imminent changes to regulations concerning Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and oak trees. I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.
