Bernhard Grinders Announces Affiliation with Ohio-Based Distributor

Bernhard and Company Turf Equipment

Bernhard and Company – manufacturer of Bernhard Grinders, the world’s finest blade sharpening systems for turf mowing machines – has partnered with Ohio-based distributor Shearer Equipment.

A full-line John Deere dealer, Shearer will educate golf courses and sports facilities across northeast Ohio, northwest Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia about the benefits of Bernhard’s trademark Express Dual and Anglemaster machines, as well its other acclaimed products. Founded in Wooster in 1937, Shearer employs more than 160 team members at seven locations throughout the Buckeye State.

“Without question, Bernhard makes the best grinders on the market,” says Jim Keller, Golf Sales Manager for Shearer. “Improved turf health, enhanced financials, and elevated employee morale are just some of Bernhard’s unmatched advantages.”

Shearer represents some of the leading brands in the industry and is pleased to add Bernhard Grinders to the list.

“After working with Shearer for several months in northeast Ohio, we were so impressed with the team’s passion for turf care and our product line that we added Pennsylvania and West Virginia to their territory,” says Steve Nixon, International Sales Manager for Bernhard Grinders. “We’re excited to have a stronger presence than ever in the heavily populated Cleveland and Pittsburgh metro areas.”

Bernhard’s aforementioned Express Dual reel grinder sharpens without requiring disassembly of the mower. Its membrane touch control panel, speed loading system, and automatic traverse, guarantees rapid turnaround and improved workshop safety. The unique auto relief eliminates the need for lapping, producing a more accurate finish and reducing maintenance costs.

Its Anglemaster bedknife grinder emphasizes speed and accuracy. Independent end-feed, a single-point advance and central-grind position make it the easiest-to-use bedknife grinder on the market.

Well known worldwide by golf course superintendents, owners, and operators as the category leader, Bernhard Grinders ensure maintenance equipment at daily-fee, private, resort, and municipal facilities is always in ideal cutting condition. Precise cut, ease of use, reliability, safety-first design, and value proposition are some of Bernhard’s most frequently cited attributes.
