What our customers say!
“It has certainly improved the playing surface. Our grass coverage has increased with the density being much thicker due to the regular cutting. It also frees up valuable manpower hours for our volunteer ground staff as they are able to concentrate on other ground maintenance tasks. Hitchin Town FC would recommend the BigMow to all football clubs as the equipment is second to none and the service offered by the staff at AMS is both friendly and effective.”Lenny Leroux – Head of Ground Management at Hitchin Town FC
We have been delighted with the installation since last August. Throughout the season it has performed beyond our expectation as a replacement for a traditional man and machine. The support from AMS has been brilliant.Steve Tebbutt, Director Fernie Fields FC
