Company owner and operator Robert Grant launched the business with an idea to manufacture a tool that he uses for hole painting. He says the idea formed after a series of colleagues found Golf Cup Saver made their jobs easier when spraying greens and painting holes. Golf Cup Saver keeps out the paint and keeps the paint from building up. The cup setter, the company says, no longer gets stuck after multiple painting applications, and the cups are kept very clean.

The plan includes the development of product updates centered on enhanced agronomic solutions for golf course superinten- dents. Emerald Isle Solutions are used to increase turf's ability to withstand stress, drought and disease and are recommended for use throughout the growing season. Increasing liquid and biological product regulation among some states is requiring product enhancements to comply with new demands. Nitrogen limitations and phosphorus restrictions in several states are also being assessed to ensure maximum product availability throughout the country.

The WS-485 is made to deliver chemical applications, which are relatively unchanged by the speed at which the sprayer is pushed. The faster it is pushed, the faster it pumps.
