The servicing, repair and sharpening of our machinery is an important part of our winter programme. The vast majority of this work is done in house by Jerry our mechanic and the rest of the greenkeeping team. The work ranges from oil and filter changes to full overhauls and sharpening using our cylinder and bottom blade grinder.
