Golf course equipment is always changing and modernizing. Dana R Lonn, PE, discusses changes that have happened during this 60-minute webcast, part of our equipment management series. The recent implementation of the tier 4 requirements precipitated a significant change in the applied technology. The move to hybridization and electrification has also begun. Outside forces like cost of fuel, labor and pressure to reduce emissions and use less chemicals and pesticides will continue to accelerate the application of technology to the golf course maintenance business. Technology that is being developed for autonomous vehicles by car manufacturers, Google and Uber will also provide opportunities for mowing equipment. We can anticipate an ever accelerating transformation of the equipment that we utilize. Listen in to learn what we are likely see in the future of golf course equipment.
