Maintaining green space in the COVID-19 environment
With varying levels of business restrictions in place globally, one thing has been a constant message – self isolate but make time to get outside and exercise. The importance of lone or household visits to green spaces will provide benefits to mental and physical health within the community for the foreseeable future.
We’ve received a number of inquiries regarding advice on developing low input maintenance practices for turf surfaces as staff availability continues to be unknown.
What is known, however, is that turf maintenance professionals are a resourceful and proactive bunch and no more has this been called upon and tested in the current climate. The Covid-19 crisis and subsequent government responses to reduce its impact have forced many facilities and clubs in our industry to assess their business holistically, including turf management operations.
It has been extremely encouraging to see, over the past week, facilities working together to develop plans to remain operational and provide their local community with the significant resource we know they provide. We have seen split shift arrangements with maintenance crews, implementing social distancing practices, increasing hygiene standards with equipment and taking innovative measures to reduce the possibility of community transition of the virus.
Here are some mowing tips which may help:
• Reduce the frequency in which surfaces are cut.
• Develop a plan to assess which surfaces are to be maintained in their current format and those that can be adjusted.
• Raise mowing heights on all surfaces 20-40% to assist in reducing turf stress. Slow-growing turf may only require mowing once a week or even once a fortnight. Increasing the height of cut on sportsfields or fairways by 25% will reduce the stress on the turf dramatically and ensure grass requires less maintenance long term.
• In regions where cool season grasses are coming into the new season consider raising cut heights higher than usual, i.e. 3.5 inches as opposed to 2.5 inches.
• In regions where warm-season grasses are soon to be entering dormancy, there will be ample opportunity in spring and the next growing season to bring surfaces back to a suitable level through regular renovation practices.
• Use large efficient mowers which will allow you to effectively manage large turf areas with the added benefit of reducing fuel costs.
• Where practicable, maintain surfaces with similar machines. This may mean temporarily changing the shape of surfaces or potentially maintaining multiple areas at one height.
• Reliability of machinery comes hand in hand with preventative maintenance. Ensure a regular maintenance regime remains in place as per your machinery operator manual.
• Minimize downtime by notifying your maintenance department early of faults or damage before it worsens.
• Plan measures to reduce the possibility of touching contaminated surfaces. Set up a transfer system – drive into a depot and enter the tractor cab without the need to be in contact with other personnel. On return to the depot, park up the tractor and enter your own vehicle to leave the depot. This eliminates the need to occupy communal vehicles which would typically carry or tow smaller mowers from site-to-site.
The Remote Unlock option replaces the standard transport lock release rope with an electric actuator. This is operated by a push button within the tractor cab.

SAFE CLIPPING DISPERSION
Safety is paramount when mowing in public areas. The FlailDek FX expels debris in a downward direction behind the mower.
Trimax turf tires help distribute the weight of the mower for less ground disturbance.
WHEELS RUN ON CUT GRASS
As the rear deck is located between the rear transport wheels, grass is not flattened by the wheels prior to mowing, a feature unique to Trimax.
Contour-following and cut quality is compromised when decks are over 9′ 10″ wide. The X-WAM features multiple smaller decks for superior cut quality.
FULL HYDRAULIC OPERATION
The X-WAM uses full hydraulic operation for deck retraction into road transport mode.
All moving surfaces have long life synthetic bushes, or greasable bearings and remote grease points for hassle-free maintenance.
Comes with a standard heavy duty roller, with 1/2″ wall thickness. Suitable for more demanding applications such as roadsides.
SteadFast Sealed Spindles have eliminated the tedious task of regular greasing. Snake now also features maintenance free pivot bushes.
RAPIDSET HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Clearly displayed cut height indicators allow for simple and easy alteration or resetting of cut heights. You can adjust heights without having to raise and lower the wings.
HIGH SPINDLE SPEEDS
The Trimax Topper has more spindles than comparison shaft driven toppers. These also spin at higher spindle speeds with shorter blade beams. This results in significantly more cuts per forward meter of travel and a much finer clip.
LOCTEK ROLLER BEARING RETENTION SYSTEM
A patent pending stubless roller bearing system for vastly improved retention, bearing life and replacement ease.
Skids on Warlord trailing arms prolong mower life in demanding terrain. The skids can be moved and replaced when required.
ANTI BLOCK SYSTEM
Topper spindles are fitted with a unique anti-block mechanism which deters long grass from catching and binding around the spindle restricting movement.
IMPROVES FEED QUALITY
Topping can be used to control poor quality pasture components such as removal of seed-heads and thistles and prevent their reoccurance.
Topper is short front to rear and mounts close to the tractor; allowing the use of smaller tractors. The high underbody clearance and open deck design allows for good flow of grass into the mowing deck and a clean ejection of cut grass.
With only 4 carefully positioned grease points and robust spindles with sealed ball bearings, the Trimax Striker has incredibly low maintenance requirements.
Striker exceeds international safety standards and is backed up by our meticulous testing and support network. Striker is a mower that can be used with confidence even when mowing in confined areas.
Striker incorporates decades of experience with multi-spindled rotary roller mowers. Designed to complement compact tractors, Striker retains the attention to detail that minimizes downtime and makes servicing easy. The cutting system, body integrity and sealed ball bearing spindles have been proven with extensive and rigorous testing.
We’ve eliminated the need to grease the pivot points and our updated spindle technology requires less maintenance and offers greater simplicity. You can spend more time mowing and less time maintaining!
EASY TO CLEAN
The improved belt chamber design includes front openings, allowing grass to be easily washed or blown out.
ACCURATE SPINDLE SETTING TECHNOLOGY
Trimax’s unique and protected spindle technology ensures spindle height is perfectly aligned across the length of each deck, providing the most accurate and consistent cut in the market.
To ensure optimum efficiency we’ve reduced the number of grease points by 15%, giving you 35% less maintenance costs than the Trimax Pegasus S3.

SAFE CLIPPING DISPERSION
Safety is paramount when mowing in public areas. This is why Trimax has designed the Ezeemow FX to expel debris in a downward direction behind the mower.
Somewhat of an operators dream, these spindles offer extremely low maintenance and remove the regular task of regular greasing. As such, costs are reduced and productivity is enhanced.
Coarseness of mulch is controlled by the height of the rear flap. The finest mulch is produced with the flap in the lowest position, this low dispersion also improves safety in public spaces. Lifting the flap fully open while servicing provides uninhibited access to flails and rotor.
HYDRAULIC SIDE SHIFT
The Warlord S3 can be positioned directly behind the tractor or quickly offset by up to 19″. This feature assists with transport and maneuvering around obstacles.
Helps direct prunings and other foliage into the front aperture of the mower, which would otherwise be too high or wide. It also helps keep debris away from the hydraulic system for protection in challenging environments.
A 1/4″ replaceable internal liner reduces noise and minimizes outer body damage prolonging mower life.
MOST VERSATILE STEALTH
The improved cutting chamber and baffle design directs airflow from the blades out and over the rear roller. This improves cut quality and spread in both long and short grass.
QUICKLIFT TEMPORARY DECK LIFT
