Some aspects on Mowing operation and maintenance

Maintenance is paramount in a golf course and the highest level of maintenance is not possible without a well-maintained golf course mower and other Toro golf course equipment. When it comes to maintenance, mowing plays an important role in it. It is good to be aware of the mowing height and mowing frequency. You should be aware of what to do with clippings. The outcome of mowing greatly depends on the sharpness, angle and balance of the mower blade. However, in mowing practices, there is a lot more to cover. In this article, we will address the following:Mower operationMowing patternMower selectionMower maintenanceMower safetyMower OperationWhen you are using your golf course mower, make sure that the speed is 3 to 5 mph. This speed is ideal and safe as well. The mower cuts grass thoroughly and clearly. The mower will start bouncing if the speed is increased beyond 5 mph. The mower will cut the grass unevenly. If you don't slow down the equipment while making sharp turns, it will damage the turf. Try to make gradual and wide turns.Mowing PatternIt is important to establish mowing patterns. Grass leans in the direction of mowing. Each time you mow the turfgrass, make sure that the patterns are moving at different angles. By doing so, you will be able to avoid turf wear and soil compaction. Try to minimize turns while using patterns. Do this to reduce turf damage due to the wheels of the mower. This will also decrease mowing time.Mower MaintenanceIf you are not maintaining your Toro golf course equipment, you can’t maintain your golf course. No matter whether you have purchased brand new equipment or you have purchased used turf equipment for sale, service and maintain it regularly. A properly maintained equipment operates more efficiently and also lasts longer. Clean and check the equipment when you call it a day. Avoid using a dull blade. Remove excess grass and dirt. Follow the manual to check all fasteners, clean air filters, and all other parts. Avoid spilling while filling up with gas. Check the oil level before refueling. Don't do anything without following the manual. Create a regular, weekly and monthly maintenance schedule.Mower safetyBe careful while using power mowers. These golf course mowers can cause serious injury. Operate these mowers only when you know how to operate. First of all, be familiar with the mower or any other Toro golf course equipment you are going to use. Consider safety first. Read all the safety instructions.Always wear slacks or full-length jeans.          Wear safety glasses. Wear slip-resistant ankle-height shoes.Get some hearing protection.Learn about all the controls.Learn what to do in case of an emergency.Make sure that there are no stones, sticks, wires and debris.Make sure that all safety features are working.Always keep your feet away from blades.Don't pull the mower, always push.Be watchful on wet grass and steep slopes.Refuel only when the engine is shut off and cool.Avoid refueling in turf areas.Don't work on the engine or blade without stopping the engine and disconnecting the spark plug wire.Mower selection                Golf course mower should be maneuverable and large enough to make sure that it is not taking too much time to mow. There are the following two types of mowers:The reel mowerThe rotary mowerGo for reel mower if you want a smooth cut. It is energy efficient and runs quietly without throwing hard objects. It doesn’t scalp on uneven ground. It is ideal for close-cut turf. However, it cannot cut high grass. It requires more maintenance and care.    A rotary mower can easily cut high grass. This golf course mower is easy to sharpen and maintain. However, this mower is very noisy, can scalp uneven and consumes more power.See More

6 Incredible Tips for Purchasing Tires

Your vehicle's execution and wellbeing rely upon the elastic that meets the street however most of customers do no exploration before purchasing tires, as indicated by Shopper Reports. So in case you're among them, get savvy and pursue these tips to benefit as much as possible from your cash and tires.Get the correct size. A tire's size is recorded on its sidewalls in a succession, for example, P265/70R16. Substitution tires ought to dependably coordinate what's prominent in your proprietor's manual or vehicle door frame, not really what's at present on your vehicle.Age matters, even with "new" tires. Tires normally fall apart after some time, quicker in hot atmospheres. A tire's "birthday" is noted as a four-digit number after a letter arrangement starting with Dab, showing the week and year it was fabricated 5009, for example, implies the 50th seven day stretch of 2009.Vehicle producers suggest you supplant tires following six years, regardless of what their condition. Since certain shops stock old tires, check the age code to ensure you're not being sold ones that are as of now quite a while old and well on their approach to requiring substitution.Get familiar with the language. "All-season" tires are a well-known and savvy decision for generally drivers. Be that as it may, think those called "elite" or "ultra superior" are better? Reconsider. Tire execution implies capacity to deal with well at higher paces, not life expectancy. Any tire with "superior" in its name will probably destroy speedier.To make your tires last more, take five minutes consistently to guarantee that they're expanded by specs recorded on the vehicle's door frame. What's prominent on the tires themselves is the most extreme suitable weight, not the weight you need.It is not necessarily the case that a weight observing framework does not merit maintaining in great working control. Remember that its minds are in extraordinary tire valves. They cost about $50 each and ought to be supplanted each three to five years, says Cook.Skill and where to deal. Tires are costly yet would you be able to barter for a rebate? You absolutely should attempt, yet good karma.Your car merchant or neighborhood carport will probably offer zero or low limits, guaranteeing slim net revenues.On account of their purchasing power, distribution center clubs, for example, Costco and BJ's sell numerous tires for less. Be that as it may, beside coupon deals, don't hope to effectively deal down here. Deals agents at chains that spend significant time in tires will in general work on commission, so they may have more squirm room or will make "coordinate any value" offers.Sites that sell Dunlop tyres (for shipment to nearby installers) merit looking at as well. Type "purchase tires in Dubai on the web" into a web crawler to discover these locales.By and large, you'll charge best looking for a markdown not on the tire, yet on related administrations, for example, establishment, lifetime tire revolutions or oil change.See More

Daily Drivers: How to Find a Commuter Car Superstar

While sitting in traffic, you may think about the many long hours that you spend behind the wheel each week. Commuters may easily spend 10 hours or more getting back and forth to work each week. Now that you have decided to upgrade your driving experience by purchasing a new commuter car, you understandably want to select a vehicle that is safe and enjoyable to drive. After narrowing down the options that are priced well for your budget, take these steps to make a thoughtful selection.Research Safety Features and RatingsSpending so much time behind the wheel on crowded streets may increase your likelihood of being in an accident. Safety ratings vary dramatically by model and trim, and these ratings can easily be located online. In addition to focusing on safety ratings, compare the safety features included in the models and trims that you are most interested in. Today’s vehicles increasingly have advanced driver’s assistive technologies, such as smart cruise control, blind spot monitoring and more.Compare FeaturesStandard and optional features throughout the interior and exterior can affect your driving experience in numerous ways. For example, some cars have heated and cooled front seats with motion sensitivity and memory functions. These can inflate the cost of a vehicle, but they also can help you to get to and from in comfort each day. The features in your vehicle should be ones that you actually would use and derive considerable benefits from. Analyze your current driving experience, and find a vehicle that has features that would improve the most uncomfortable or inconvenient aspects of your daily commute.Test Drive to Compare PerformanceComparing vehicle performance between multiple models and trims is critical as well. The powertrain and mechanical features may vary by trim. After selecting a few models that you are interested in, reach out to a salesperson or dealership so that you can compare the various powertrains available for each trim. In addition to variations in powertrains, braking features, suspension systems, and other performance-based features can vary from trim to trim.Upgrading to a new commuter car can transform your experience behind the wheel each day. However, with so many variations between the models and trims, your commuting experience is dependent on the specific vehicle that you decide to take home. After determining your budget and comparing your top picks online, make plans to test drive several vehicles before finalizing purchase plans.See More

Dealership Buy/Sell Market Marked Fifth Consecutive Year of 200+ Transactions in 2018 with Continued Growth Predicted for 2019

  2018 transactions increased 6.9% year over year, including record number of multi-dealership transactions; in spite of auto sales downturn, 2019 acquisition market will be robust, with real estate valuations high and private investors seeing key value in Fixed Ops profit centers and improved retail efficiencies, according to The Blue Sky Report® released by Kerrigan Advisors Irvine, CA – March 19, 2019 – The automobile dealership buy/sell market recorded another year of tremendous activity in 2018, representing a 6.9% growth over 2017, and the fifth consecutive year of over 200 buy/sells, according to the just-released The Blue Sky Report’s® “Year in Review” by Kerrigan Advisors. Two hundred sixteen transactions closed in 2018, including a record number of multi-dealership transactions.  And, according to the report, this five-year streak shows no signs of abating: in spite of an anticipated slump in auto sales and rising interest rates, Kerrigan Advisors predicts that 2019 will be another robust year for buy/sells and valuations. “The strength of the dealership buy/sell market over the last five years is a testament to the health of the US economy, the financial markets, and most importantly the auto retail industry.  We believe the number of buyers, particularly those backed by professionally managed capital, will increase in 2019,” said Erin Kerrigan, Founder and Managing Director of Kerrigan Advisors.   “Despite rising interest rates and a decline in new vehicle sales, the average auto dealership remains highly profitable and valuable, continuing to appeal to private dealers who comprised the majority of buyers in 2019." In addition to a strong economy and the ongoing consolidation and innovation opportunities in auto retail, among the key factors Kerrigan Advisors cites for a strong buy/sell market in 2019 are a rise in the number of private investors seeking to put capital into auto retail (year-to-date, the pace of new investors seeking investments in auto retail has risen 59% as compared to 2018); increased dealership gross profit driven by fixed operations (service & parts), as well as dealerships’ historically demonstrated ability to adjust their business model to create new profit opportunities and reduce variable expenses. “Buyers are looking for higher quality franchises which are more competitive as new vehicle sales decline,” continued Kerrigan.  “These franchises tend to have more fixed operations revenue, which commands a gross profit margin nearly ten times higher than new vehicles and are benefiting from the surge of vehicles entering the “sweet spot” of customer pay post-warranty, more than making up for margin losses from a contracting vehicle market.” Kerrigan Advisors noted that while overall Blue Sky multiple averages are lower, due to a decline in lower demand franchises, valuations remain strong, although more stores are trading at average, rather than high multiples. Additionally, valuations are being positively influenced by high real estate valuations which are at peak levels and represented the largest portion of a dealership’s value in 2018:  Kerrigan Advisors estimates the average dealership’s real estate value at $11.3 million, up 4.9% from 2017. This shift in dealership transaction values from blue sky to real estate has reduced the equity requirements of the average transaction which, Kerrigan Advisors believes, is one of the reasons buy/sell activity remains so strong. Domestics continued to show strength in the 2018 buy/sell market, according to the report, exceeding 50% for the first time in the last five years. On the other hand, import luxury franchises’ market share continued to decline, a trend the report says will continue in 2019 as their high multiples will be more difficult to achieve for some buyers. Also contributing is the sensitivity import luxury franchises have to rising interest rates because their high valuations typically require more leverage.  But, although the larger import segment will also see a decline in 2019, Kerrigan Advisors expects the top import non-luxury franchises, namely Toyota, Honda and Subaru, to grow their buy/sell market share in 2019. “A key trend for 2019 is that the business model of the franchise will determine buyer demand:  as industry sales contract, buyers become more discerning, focusing on high-performing franchises that have attractive, long term investment characteristics and that tend to outperform the industry when sales decline,” said Ryan Kerrigan, Managing Director of Kerrigan Advisors.   “Meanwhile, weaker franchises with challenging dealer business models will see lower buyer demand because today’s buyers are not attracted to franchises with poor dealer relations, highly variable incentive programs, less supportive captive finance companies, low sales per dealership and weak fixed operations.” The report also identified the following four market trends, which it predicts will meaningfully impact the buy/sell market in 2019 and beyond. ➢ Sellers avoid image upgrades to capitalize on record real estate values➢ Rising interest rates impact blue sky values➢ Franchise business models determine buyer demand➢ Transaction activity increasingly varies by market The Blue Sky Report®, published by Kerrigan Advisors, is the auto industry's most comprehensive and authoritative quarterly report on dealership M&A activity, as well as franchise values. It includes analysis of all transaction activity for the year, and lays out the high, average and low blue sky multiples for each franchise in luxury and non-luxury segments.Key Highlights from the 2018 Full Year Blue Sky Report® include:216 transactions closed, versus 202 in 2017, resulting in a 6.9% increase over 201Year to date, the pace of new investors seeking investments in auto retail has risen 59% as compared to 2018.The number of multi-dealership transactions reached a record 65 for the full year of 2018, a notable 25% increase over 2017’s level.Domestics’ share of the buy/sell market rose again in 2018, exceeding 50% for the first time in the last five years.Public retailers’ acquisition spending declined in 2018 by 6% as compared to 2017.Private buyers continue to lead industry consolidation, acquiring 93% of the franchises sold in 2018, about the same level as 2017.Dealership real estate represented the largest portion of a dealership’s value in 2018, exceeding blue sky value by 84.2%.Public companies are undervalued relative to private dealerships. Public blue sky multiples now average just 1x, only slightly above Kerrigan Advisors’ average blue sky multiples for private dealerships, despite the publics’ liquidity premium. For more details and to preview the report, click here.Kerrigan Advisors monitors conditions in the buy/sell market and publishes an in-depth analysis each quarter in The Blue Sky Report® which includes Kerrigan Advisors’ signature blue sky charts, multiples, and analysis for each franchise in the luxury and non-luxury segments.

New Infographic Makes Case for Reinsurance Review

Protective Asset Protection, a provider of F&I programs, services, and dealer-owned warranty company programs, announced today it has made available a new educational infographic for automotive dealerships and dealer principals on the effect recent tax reform measures have had on dealer participation programs.In “Tax Laws Demand a Review of Reinsurance Programs,” analysts note the Trump administration’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which took effect for the 2018 tax year, may reduce personal and corporate liability, but it also affects the selection and performance of a dealer’s participation program, such as non-controlled foreign corporations.According to a recent survey conducted by Protective Asset Protection, more than half of the dealer groups surveyed currently participate in an NCFC, and only 11% of dealer group executives are aware that the new tax law could adversely affect NCFCs.“While NCFCs may have served dealership principals in the past, it may not be a wise move to take a gamble on this structure moving forward,” said Matt Gibson, vice president of reinsurance for Protective Asset Protection. “Dealers are gambling that the advisors’ advice will be accepted by the IRS. There’s a lot at risk when rolling the dice with the Internal Revenue Code and the IRS’s interpretation of it.”The infographic also explains how a dealer-owned warranty company may be a better alternative for dealers. DOWCs are structured to allow a dealer to own, market, sell, and support their own branded F&I program by owning their own company.Click here to download the free infographic. ABOUT PROTECTIVE ASSET PROTECTIONProtective Asset Protection provides vehicle protection plans, GAP, and credit insurance through vehicle dealerships. Protective Asset Protection has been serving dealers for more than 55 years and currently provides products and services to automobile, marine, RV and powersports dealers.
