SOUTHAMPTON, Pa. (July 20, 2018)— Schiller Grounds Care, a leading manufacturer of lawn and garden power equipment, is teaming up with David Mellor, senior director of grounds for the Boston Red Sox, to serve as a spokesperson for its commercial-grade mowing, turf care and gardening equipment. Through this agreement, Mellor will be using a variety of BOB-CAT®, Little Wonder®, Mantis®, RYAN® and Classen®products both at work and at home.

“I’ve used Schiller products throughout my 34-year career in sports turf management,” Mellor said. “I know I can depend on their quality, performance and the service behind them. Whether I’m using a Little Wonder vacuum to clean up debris, RYAN or Classen products to make repairs to our turf, or a Mantis tiller to work the soil, they’ve never let me down.”

Known for his intricate lawn striping patterns—checkerboards, converging arches, bats and balls, or logos—Mellor believes you have one chance to make a first impression. On a ball field or at home, having a mower that offers a great quality of cut is crucial. His choice to help him with those striping patterns is a BOB-CAT Predator-Pro RS zero turn mower with a 61″ AirFXdeck and optional full-width roller.

“Safety and playability are our top priorities in sports turf,” Mellor emphasized. “Knowing we’ll get a great quality of cut that’s smooth and consistent is so important. We mow every day when the team is at home, so the field plays the same way from one day to the next.”

“We are incredibly excited to be working with one of the preeminent sports turf managers and to have him using our products,” said Troy Blewett, director of marketing for Schiller Grounds Care. “Importantly, David’s knowledge of lawn mowing and turf maintenance will be of great value to our commercial and residential customers. We will be sharing mowing, turf care and gardening tips from him on our branded websites and social media pages on a regular basis.”
