Cub Cadet recently announced that it has expanded its presence in the sports turf market with the acquisition of Advanced Turf Technology (ATT). The United Kingdom-based company produces cutting reel mowers and cassettes specially designed for the sports field and golf maintenance markets.
“The addition of Advanced Turf Technology into the MTD family further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the professional turf markets,” said Rob Moll, CEO, MTD Products, which includes the Cub Cadet brand. “Cub Cadet is dedicated to providing innovative products that enable turf managers worldwide to produce the highest quality playing surfaces. Beyond improving productivity, these products enhance environmental stewardship — an increasingly important attribute for many groundsmen and facilities worldwide.”
Products from Advanced Turf Technology include the TMSystem and INFiNiCut. These products are used by Premier League soccer clubs, golf courses and sporting facilities around the world.
“Here at Leicester City FC, we try and use the latest industry technology where we can to keep the Kingpower Pitch in optimum condition,” said John Ledwidge, Leicester City FC grounds manager. “We were interested in the ATT INFiNiCut right from the start. The quality of cut is superb and the different set-up options we can pick on any given day allows us to tailor the mower to get the best finish possible, something we have never been able to do before now.”
Close collaboration over the past two years with The All England Tennis Club, which stages The Championships at Wimbledon, helped refine the product to provide premium results for improved grass tennis courts.
“These are some of the most prestigious tennis courts in the world, so we want the best equipment to help us maintain a championship performance,” said Neil Stubley, head groundsman at The All England Tennis Club. “We’ve seen an improvement in the quality of the playing surfaces since we began using the INFiNiCut.”
