After cut appearance and quality of cut for both reel and rotary mowers is certainly an important part of golf course maintenance. For those individuals who work on the mowers, knowing what’s behind that quality and getting troubleshooting tips is part of being successful.
Recorded live during an equipment managers tech session for the ET members of the Mississippi Valley Chapter of the GCSAA at Norwood Hills Country Club in St. Louis, Mo. Erik Parker, golf sales and service representative, Erb Turf Equipment, covers identification of cut issues from environmental to agronomic to soil conditions and even the unlikely operator error.
Chris Rapp, equipment manager, Bellerive Country Club, provides real world examples from his decades of experience in the golf maintenance business.
Parker hopes, “You’ll walk away with a better understanding of some of the cut quality issues common to our business.” You can sure walk out on the course with printable checklists in hand to help you put his troubleshooting ideas into action.
