The amenity attention has lagged behind in a use of electronic record in areas such as pre-cision application, appurtenance monitoring or programmed documentation.
However, with ever-increasing submit prices, such as diesel, man-power or a cost of winter salt and grit, a need to be means to request accurate quantities or to maximize a hitch breadth of a mower, so that a series of runs adult and down is kept to a minimum, becomes some-more and some-more significant. Also a documented record of an area mown or sown can assistance contractors conduct weed slicing contracts some-more effectively.
Amazone have always been during a forefront when it comes to anticipating innovative solutions to make life easier for those businesses concerned in both immature space government and winter spreading, and so introducing record to support in maximising a lapse from new machine investment is zero new.
For example, a auger feed on a Profihopper self-propelled mower collectors, proven now by a thousand and that has shown to be a genuine reward this year with a measureless amounts of wet, sensuous weed that has been unfit to collect with required collection sys-tems. Plus a tool-less change between mowing blades and scarifying knives has finished a finish operation of apparatus propitious with a Exact-Cut beat rotor, and that includes both a Profi-hopper and a tractor-mounted Groundkeeper as well, tackle that any business can't conduct without. As Phil Baldock, conduct greenkeeper during Ganton Golf Club in North Yorkshire says ‘The Groundkeeper isn’t Amazone, it’s Amazing. we bought a scarifier and got 9 other machines with it for free!’ And what some-more could we ask for.
With IOG Windsor only around a corner, a Saltex Show will see Amazone Groundcare intro-duce a ‘Technology in Turf’ concept. This judgment will demeanour during improving potency in all 4 sec-tors of a Amazone Groundcare operation – seeding – mowing – swelling – cultivating.
And this record does not always need to be vastly costly or complicated. Take for in-stance, a GBK seeder combination, a further of a elementary electronic area scale creates cali-bration forever some-more accurate as a user now has a consistent read-out in a cab of a area sown. And when it comes to invoicing that pursuit out, there is an accurate famous area that can be used to beget a check value.
The use of GPS record is good famous for sat-nav systems where a position of a automobile is known. This form of record can also be brought opposite into a amenity industry. So, when regulating a Groundkeeper beat mower collector, or a large brother, a self-propelled Profihopper, in a weed slicing or root collection contract, a area to be worked can be mapped by a GPS-Switch shade propitious to a vehicle. One pass around a fringe of a pursuit to be done, and around any obstacles in a center of that area that can’t be included, will furnish a map of a sum block yardage that needs to be cut/collected and hence invoiced.
GPS-Switch is a stand-alone depot that can be utilized on any form of automobile and can be used not only as a means of mapping an area though also, when specified with GPS-Track, as a light bar superintendence system. This can afterwards be used as a means of ensuring that a full hitch breadth of a ma-chine is being utilised. The saving of a few centimetres on any pass can outcome in a user creation reduction passes during a day that improves both work rates and saves on a volume of fuel used. The correctness of that GPS vigilance and hence a grade of correctness of a pushing will count on a form of improvement complement specified for a satellite receiver.
When swelling salt and grit, a ability to transport during a brazen speed that is as quick as possible, while remaining protected and gentle for a driver, again offers a business a possibility to maximize a outlay of a spreader during winter swelling on streets and paved areas, drives and automobile parks. The volume to be practical can be comparison on a pierce from a tractor chair so a widespread rate can be practiced to fit a pursuit in hand; there is no indicate wasting element by requesting anymore than is necessary. And with a E+S spreader, that can be set to chuck over to a left or a right and can be practiced for sum breadth on a pierce to widespread only that cement or cycle approach though wastage, a rate is afterwards automatically distributed for a new operative width.
All ways round, we can see how Amazone record can maximize a profitability of any busi-ness.
Come and see Amazone on Stand DAA40.
