Tiger Corporation and Progressive Turf Equipment have jointly
announced a major new distribution agreement. Under the terms of the
agreement, Tiger Corporation has been appointed the exclusive
distributor of the Progressive SLOPE-PRO™ for Canada, Mexico and the United
States. The North American designed and manufactured SLOPE-PRO
mower will be marketed by Tiger Corporation as the “Tiger Prowler™”.

The Tiger Prowler is a fully remote-controlled, zero turn, tracked mower designed to tackle hazardous, demanding or labour-intensive areas not easily maintained by conventional means. This product allows the operator to maintain areas that are challenging to mow with existing mower technologies. With a 52-inch-wide rotary cut, Progressive rates the Slope-Pro for operation on side slopes up 50 degrees and with a working range of up to 300 feet for the remote control. progweb

As a leading manufacturer of turf and grounds care pull-behind rotary mowers, Progressive has been marketing products across North America under its own (Progressive Turf Equipment) name brand since 1979. Tiger Corporation, one of the market leaders in roadside mowing equipment and related vegetation control attachments, has been manufacturing and distributing its products through its dealer network since 1968.

“This sales, distribution and service alliance is just the next step in Tiger’s continued commitment to municipal and contractor vegetation management in North America”, said Shawn Cleary, president of Tiger Corporation. “This new agreement between two of the strongest players in their respective markets will pay great dividends in product selection and reliable distribution for our dealers and their municipal customers.”

“We are pleased to be able to market the SLOPE-PRO™ through the Tiger Dealer network”, said Luke Janmaat, president of Progressive Turf Equipment. “This mower is ideally suited to many applications, especially those in the municipal market, and Tiger’s commitment to that market is superb."

Tiger Corporation is an Alamo Group Company located in Sioux Falls, SD and Progressive Turf Equipment is located in Seaforth, Ont.

Progressive Turf Equipment will Market the Slope-Pro worldwide, except Canada, United States and Mexico.
