56 GOLF COURSE MANAGEMENT 04.18 Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc.'s new Jacobsen TR Series trim mowers' slope ca - pability and maneuverability help navigate tight spaces and challenging terrain, the com - pany says. The series includes the TR320 and TR330, both of which deliver a heightened quality of cut on slopes, hills and undulations while ensuring crew safety and productivity. Engineered to be easy to operate and service, the TR320's vertical lift boasts the industry's narrowest transport width, allowing operators to negotiate any course's tightest topography, the company says. The TR330's AdaptiShift technology allows operators to shift all three cutting reels to either side of the machine, cre - ating up to 18 inches of offset, allowing bun- kers and other hazards to be trimmed with ease while keeping the mower away from obstacles. The TR330 is equipped with an ergonomic seat and a full-color LCD armrest-mounted display screen, which performs intuitive on-board di - agnostics.

Foley United introduced the ACCU-Spin 622 series of reel grinders. This series consists of ACCU-Spin 622 SO (spin only), ACCU- Spin 622 SG (spin/gauge) and ACCU-Spin 622 SGR (spin/gauge/relief ) machines. The ACCU-Spin 622 SO is a "spin-only" machine with the option to add gauging and relief grinding. The new ACCU-Spin 622 series' pat - ented rear roller mounting system locates the reel by the rear roller, minimizing issues that can arise when locating the reel by the front roller. It is standard on all Foley United table - top reel grinders. The live shaft spin hub design produces a sharp edge in short order. Optional add-ons such as the LED gauging system (622 SG) and auto-index relief hub (622 SGR) can be configured at the time of purchase or later. LED gauging gives the operator an easy visual adjustment process, ensuring the removal of taper and a perfect cylindrical grind every time. The patented auto-index relief hub maximizes the performance of the grinder and provides the final step when the user wishes to recon - dition the reel back to full original equipment manufacturer specification.
