John Deere, the perfect partner to premium turf.

HG Turf group based in Alexandra, Victoria, specialises in growing, supplying and installing high quality turf for domestic and commercial customers and turf systems for elite stadiums. For more than three decades, John Deere has been a proven choice for tractors and turf equipment at HG.

“Quality, precision, consistency and reliability are key to our products, services and reputation. It’s the same qualities we see in every John Deere we purchase. We’ve had a number of John Deere tractors, some even going back to the 80s,” mentioned Nick Stemmer, Workshop and Machinery Manager at the HG Turf Group.

Nick visited his local John Deere dealer Glenmac recently and came away with two new 1025R tractors, which have already been put to work and are proving their worth to his business.

The 1025R tractors were just what HG Turf Group were after. “We were looking for something specific for our style of work. The John Deere could be fitted with various attachments, which we use in stadiums to push the rolls of ready to play turf nice and tightly together. We really like the hydrostatic transmission for manoeuvrability. And the compact size makes a big difference – they’re easy to handle, easy to load and easy to move around.”

“John Deere has proven to be reliable for us and our needs. We’ve been dealing with the same guys at Glenmac for nearly 27 years, we have a great relationship and we really trust the team there.” And it’s not just on the shop floor where it matters. Nick values the ongoing support of his local John Deere dealer. “We need to know that we have help if we need it, and we know that they’re there to help us out.”
