SIMPLY ADVANCED

The only cassette system to
transform your triplex greens mower
or lightweight fairway mower into
a 'complete' fine turf refinement system.

“The TMSystem is a very clever design, very practical and easy to swap
between the different tools. I would liken it to a formula one pit stop – straight in and straight out. My mechanic has also commented on how well engineered the cassettes are, and what good quality, from the metal itself to the ease of adjustment, but they are also very simple.The design has been well thought out, not just from a manufacturer’s viewpoint but also that of a Greenkeeper and a mechanic.”

MORE FLEXIBILITY

The TMSystem™ unlocks the full
potential of a John Deere, Toro or
Jacobsen multi-gang mower for
sportsgrounds and golf fairways.

“The ATT TMSystem™ offered a higher quality cutting cassette with more options compared to what we had before. The multifunction nature of the ATT cassette system was a double bonus.”

For Fine Turf

Versatile equipment that saves the need to buy individual machines – forget your tractor-mounted PTO driven de-thatcher, spiker/sarel roller, drag brush or sweeper/collector and dispense with a separate pedestrian scarifier.

The TMSystem™ is unique, it has several exclusive SMART cassettes that will tackle everyday problems experienced on a golf course. Using the appropriate chassis adaptor kit, the system is fully compatible with all main-stream makes of triplex greens mowers and lightweight fairway mowers, like John Deere, Jacobsen and Toro.

For Sports Turf

ATT’s TMSystem™ brings fine turf quality to sports turf maintenance with a range of SMART cassettes. Versatile equipment to bring more flexibility to fairway and triple greens mowers – saving the need to buy individual machines.

The TMSystem™ unlocks the full potential of your John Deere, Toro or Jacobsen fairway or triple greens mower achieving more functionality by replacing the OEM cutting reels with ones specific to applications.  There are 9 SMART cassettes – perfect for verticutting, shallow solid tining, brushing etc. to improve the health and playability of sports turf surfaces and achieve better overall surface quality and appearance.

The Cassettes

Whatever the objective is, ATT’s Turf Management System™ has the appropriate SMART cassette to meet the needs of the modern day turf maintenance professional.

Whether the objective is organic matter reduction, grain control, soil gas/air exchange, green speed manipulation, or just top-dressing integration there is an appropriate greens maintenance cassette to meet the need.

The SMARTSarel roller, if used regularly, will prevent surface sealing of fine turf resulting from the effects of rolling and air-born silt. This can lead to decreased infiltration rates and a reduction in gaseous exchange between the atmosphere and the rootzone upper horizon.

It can be used up to 20mm (0.8in) depth, and is also an excellent tool for use after top-dressing to integrate the sand into the turf canopy.

Close

The SMARTSpiker provides an alternative method of reducing surface sealing whilst using the same principles as the Sarel roller. It is for those Turf Managers who prefer an elongated form as opposed to a circular pattern.

It is a fast and cost effective aerator allowing the triplex to operate at transport speed. Aeration is great for increasing surface soil temperature at the start of the season helping to bring turf out of dormancy sooner.

Close

The SMARTPowerBrush Cassette is designed to ensure even collection of debris throughout the length of the grass catcher, maximizing the volume. It’s very effective collecting surplus top-dressing; stones from bunkers and leaf debris. The bristles are made from high quality nylon resulting in a durable brush with “flex memory”. Two different stiffness grades of bristle are available.

Close

The SMARTThatchMaster is used to prevent thatch accumulation and cut through stolons and rhizomes in fine turf. For Sports Turf it is used to keep organic accumulation in check and open the sward up such that air is free to circulate around the plant. Used moderately prior to light sand dressings helps the dressing material reach the base of the plant more effectively.

The carbide tipped blades are spaced at 10mm centres and manufactured from 2mm thick tungsten.

Close

The SMARTRazorCutter produces less stress on the grass plant by employing non carbide tipped, laser cut, blades. They help minimise any bruising effect that can lead to increased plant pathogen attack when using regular carbide tips.

To counteract accelerated wear, resulting in a rounded tip, the rotor shaft can be turned through 180°. This feature enables the use of both sides of the blade tip to maintain a sharp edge being offered to the grass at all times.

Close

The SMARTUltraGroomer cassette has over 80 1.3mm tungsten carbide tipped blades spaced at 5mm apart to ensure your greens are maintained in the best condition.

It will minimise puffiness in high density Creeping Bent and Bermuda grasses by reducing ‘scalping’ and ‘foot-printing’. The cassette will also remove seed heads in Poa annua turf and on newly established greens, it can help reduce the ingress of Poa annua by “grabbing” individual plants before they get a chance to take hold.

Close

The patented SMARTVibe Cassette is the only integrated vibratory cassette in the world. With an operating frequency of 83Hz transferred through two 60mm diameter rollers there is no better method of achieving fast true putting surfaces.

Efficient integration of sand top-dressing deep in to the turf canopy is easily achieved with the optional SMARTVibe™ Cassette Brush. The Brush can also be used without vibration thereby making it perform as a Static brush.

Close

The SMARTScarifier is the obvious choice for greens that already have thatch at depth. The 5 bladed 1.6mm super-tough blades, spaced at 40mm, work at a depth of up to 14mm. The brush spacers ensure thorough clean-up and effective throwing of the thatch into the grass catchers. Consecutive use in multiple directions will result in minimal surface disruption.

Close

The SMARTStaticBrush is an extremely effective method of working sand into your greens. Running on four nylon rollers, it has a simple method of adjusting the pressure exerted on the green and is equally at home working in heavy or light dressings.

This patented optional attachment to the chassis
makes for the ultimate in surface hygiene - whatever
operation is being carried out.

The brush is driven by the chassis rear roller instead of the cassette, which
all but eliminates direct power consumption. It is accomplished through
the use of a fully sealed low friction gearbox where the act of the roller
turning through normal contact with the turf is sufficient to drive the
gearbox and rotate the brush.

The brush is also adjustable to allow minimal contact to take place
between the rear roller and the rotating brush; further limiting frictional
losses but not at the expense of either usability or quality of finish. Any
reduction in frictional losses, on any part of a mower, will ultimately result
in better fuel efficiency/battery life and less wear on components.

Testimonials

The TMSystem is a very clever design, very practical and easy to swap between the different tools. I would liken it to a formula one pit stop – straight in and straight out. My mechanic has also commented on how well engineered the cassettes are, and what good quality, from the metal itself to the ease of adjustment, but they are also very simple. The design has been well thought out, not just from a manufacturer’s viewpoint but also that of a Greenkeeper and a mechanic.
The UltraGroomer units were particularly good, they could be set to work deeper and take out more thatch without disturbing the surface. The finish is very clean, but a surprising amount of material is collected.
David Cole, Golf Course & Estate Superintendent, Loch Lomond Golf Club
We have reduced thatch to a manageable level, so all that is needed is surface management of the sward. The SMART UltraGroomer does an excellent job.

Warwick Manning, Head Greenkeeper, Abbeydale Golf Club
I wasn’t necessarily looking for a cassette based system but the build quality of the Ultra Groomer module caught my attention. I was initially convinced a cassette based system must be a compromise against stand alone machinery but the demo really impressed us and that impression has stayed. I especially liked the idea that the system could be added to and that I didn’t have to buy the whole package in one go.
Glenn Kirby, Assistant Course Manager , London Golf Club
The day of the demo was very wet, but we took the INFiNi out and created a great finish with the SMART UltraGroomer with no mess – everything went straight in the box. I take my hat off to the designer. He has used his experience as a Greenkeeper to come up with a machine that’s Greenkeeper friendly and ticks all of the boxes.
Paul Seago, Head Superintendent, The Renaissance Golf Club
The ATT TMSystem™ offered a higher quality cutting cassette with more options compared to what we had before. The multifunction nature of the ATT cassette system was a double bonus.
I think the cutting quality of the ATT SMARTCut cassette is absolutely superb and is very easy to set up. Altering the cutting height used to be a relatively lengthy task, but now setting the cuts can take someone as little as 10 minutes to complete. For me, the easy height adjustment is the unique selling point of these reels.
Andy Mackay, Head Groundsman, Sussex County Cricket Club
At my first club we had the full range of ATT SMART cassettes – Vibration, Verticutting, Brushing etc. They were so useful and versatile that I’ve managed to convince every employer since then to invest in them.
Steven Connolly, Course Manager, Kirby Muxloe Golf Club
