February 10, 2015 – Officially to be unveiled at the Golf Industry Show in San Antonio Feb. 25-26, this revolutionary product signifies Cub Cadet’s entry into the golf market as it provides the industry with innovation that delivers on both higher productivity and increased quality.
With its autonomous operation, Cub Cadet’s RG3 enables golf course superintendents to reallocate manpower to other important areas of the course during the critical morning hours to provide superior overall upkeep. Customer experience has proven the RG3 provides at least a 50 percent increase in labor productivity, allowing superintendents to achieve higher quality with less manpower.
John Shaw, Certified Golf Course Superintendent at Valley Brook Country Club in McMurray, Pa., placed two RG3 units into daily service in July 2014 to evaluate the RG3’s performance against their existing operations.
“The RG3’s impact to our putting greens has exceeded my expectations,” he said. “We are achieving higher clipping yield, more consistent green speeds and smoother putting surfaces with less manpower. It’s a win-win scenario.”
The RG3 is among many other Cub Cadet products that provide improved productivity and quality to the golf industry. For example, the Cub Cadet Tank SZ Series professional zero turn riding mowers includes the patented Synchro Steer feature, a technology first pioneered by Cub Cadet, to provide unsurpassed hillside tracking and control over any terrain. Synchro Steer provides the grounds professional a whole new level of stability, precision and ease of use on virtually any golf course terrain. Cub Cadet also offers True Edge, a technology enabled product which ensures the greens shape does not change over time.
