John Deere celebrates milestone machine


Five millionth machine rolls off the production line at Deere’s Power Products plant at Greeneville


John Deere recently marked a manufacturing milestone with the completion of the five millionth unit of riding lawn equipment built at the company’s Power Products factory in Greeneville, Tennessee.


Originally founded as a small, satellite factory, Power Products is now the highest volume facility for John Deere and is responsible for manufacturing many of the iconic green lawnmowers sold by the brand. The facility was established in 1988 and celebrated its 30th anniversary last July.


“The production of the five millionth machine is a significant milestone for the Power Products team, John Deere and our loyal customers,” said factory manager Jeff Hollett. “We take immense pride in the legacy we have built


here in Greeneville, and to know we have built five million machines is something we are really proud of.”


The Power Products facility currently manufactures the John Deere 100 Series small ride-on models, some of which are equipped with the award-winning Easy Change 30-second oil change system, as well as the S240 lawn tractor and the Z300 and Z500 Series ZTrak zero-turn mowers. As with all John Deere products, the models built by the employees at Power Products have a greater reach and purpose than just the equipment.


“The production of five million units really puts into perspective what we do here on a daily basis,” said Hollett. “It’s more than just manufacturing machines to help people look after their lawn. It’s

about our unwavering commitment to quality and integrity. This is the only way we were able to reach this milestone, which is a


testament to the long-term success of John Deere Power Products.”


BIGGA, Reesink and Toro launch awards


Launch of the Toro Student Greenkeeper of the Year Awards 2019


Lateral Property Group have provided a positive update on plans for a new 10,000-seat Community Stadium for Castleford Tigers rugby league football club; part of the wider £135m AXIOM retail development.


Next to Junction 32 of the M62, the 106 acre next generation AXIOM retail and leisure destination, will comprise around 75 retail, restaurant and leisure units, alongside a new community stadium for Castleford Tigers.


Once operational, the development will create in excess of 2,000 jobs, plus around 1,100 construction jobs per annum during the 2.5 year build period.


Plans for the community stadium and retail development were originally granted in 2015 and further detailed planning amendments to the retail element have been made since then, which have now also been granted planning permission


The new Castleford Tigers Community Stadium will have a capacity for 10,000 spectators (approx. 3,200 seated and 6,800 standing). It will have the ability to be expanded to a capacity of 12,000 through future phasing by infilling the four corners if sustained club performance justifies further expansion.


6 PC April/May 2019


The British & International Golf Greenkeepers Association, Toro and Reesink Turfcare have launched their annual competition that seeks to uncover the brightest emerging talent in the golf greenkeeping industry.


The Toro Student Greenkeeper of the Year Awards are a nationwide competition to uncover the best student greenkeepers from among the ranks of BIGGA members.


Two awards are up for grabs, with the Toro Student Greenkeeper of the Year Award entering its 31st year and open to all greenkeeping students studying for eligible qualifications. The other award is the Toro Young Student Greenkeeper of the Year, available to greenkeeping students aged 20 and under.


The winner of the main award will head to the University of Massachusetts for a six-week scholarship to study winter turf management, whilst the winner of the ‘Young’ award will earn a two-week work experience placement at the exclusive Vidaubin Club in the South of France, in addition to a Continue to Learn package at BIGGA’s annual turf management exhibition each January.


Prizes are also up for grabs for the runners-up in each category, whilst those who nominate or endorse the applications of the winning students - who can be course managers, head


greenkeepers or college tutors - also receive a major prize.


Application forms can be downloaded from the BIGGA website and the deadline for applications is 24th May 2019. Regional interviews will take place from 1st to 12th July 2019 and the national final will take place at BIGGA House from 9th to 10th September 2019.


David Cole, managing director of awards sponsor Reesink Turfcare, said: “The Toro Student Greenkeeper of the Year Award has stood the test of time and is as relevant today, over 30 years since its inception, in a world now filled with sponsored awards.”


“The introduction of the ‘Young’ category, entering its fourth year, helped reinvigorate the original intentions of this pioneering programme. Whichever award they enter, this is the start of an exciting journey for our 2019 nominees.”
