Equipment Maintenance

This week, we have been working on refurbishing "greens mowers", the Toro Flex 21. The mowers are completely torn down, cleaned, re-assembled and then sharpened. I would anticipate another 2 weeks to get through all 26 mowers.

"Refurbishing" includes complete dis-assembly of the machine, checking bearings and other critical moving components and replacing them as needed. At the same time, we do a complete diagnostic check of the engine. Final preparations include grinding, washing, oils and fluids and a finish wash.

This level of detailing gives us the greatest chance of minimal breakdowns during the golfing season.
