Radley College benefits from new Toro mowers

Published:  22 October, 2015

Independent boys' boarding school Radley College, near Oxford, has bought five new Toro mowers.

The fleet will maintain pitches for a range of turf-based sports including rugby, field hockey, cricket and golf.

The prestigious private school has taken delivery of a Groundsmaster 3400-D, a high performance four-wheel drive out-front rotary mower; two Reelmaster 3100-Ds, providing a precision cut for a wide range of applications; a Reelmaster 6700-D, with mowing flexibility and a durable drive system; and a Groundsmaster 4300-D, which boasts an average 5.4 acres an hour of mowing productivity.

Grounds Manager Adam King said: ‘Financially, it was a better deal for us. Our existing Toro machines were in need of an upgrade and the lease agreement allowed us to have new machines straight away, while also covering winter service and all at a fixed cost.

‘This lets us manage our budget and, as well as replace some models like-for-like, we've been able to upgrade to better models on others.'
