Council recently approved the purchase of a Walker mower as an enhanced replacement for the existing Toro zero turn unit. The new unit was received on Wednesday 15 July 2020 and driven to the RSL Pavilion for Councillors to view during the Ordinary Council Meeting of 22 July 2020.
This new asset will primarily be used for vegetation maintenance at the Tenterfield Cemetery and features a 42 inch cutting deck which will move easily between most monuments in the old section of the Cemetery.
The mower has a rear mounted catcher that has a high dump feature to allow the clippings to be dumped safely into an industrial bin, ute or truck or onto the ground or gardens.
The buttercup yellow mower may also be seen in Bruxner Park, Shirley Park cricket oval or other areas requiring a high quality, clipping free, finish.
The mower is another welcome addition to Council’s Parks & Gardens maintenance fleet to assist in ensuring quality workmanship in a safe and efficient manner.
