2018 is quickly coming to a close and we think it’s as good a time as any to have a little look back on the turf machinery landscape this year. Here at QTurf, we have gained a few new suppliers in the last 12 months, expanding our range of products to better serve groundskeepers and farmers in Queensland and wider Australia. So what turf machinery and equipment have been the cream of the crop in 2018?
Our latest acquisition, and a fine one at that! We’re proud to have KBV as a tine supplier here at QTurf, as their range of aeration tines are excellent quality, boasting a long lifespan and superior efficiency. KBV tines are compatible with some of the best brands in turf machinery, including John Deere, Toro, Wiedenmann and Selvatici.

A must-have piece of turf equipment for every greenskeeper!
