Tiger Corporation and Progressive Turf Equipment (PTE) today jointly announced a major new distribution agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Tiger Corporation has been appointed the exclusive distributer of the PTE SLOPE-PROT for Canada, Mexico and the United States. The North American designed and manufactured PTE SLOPE-PROT mower will be marketed by Tiger Corporation as the "Tiger ProwlerT".
 
The Tiger ProwlerT is a fully remote-controlled, zero turn, tracked mower designed to tackle hazardous, demanding or labor intensive areas not easily maintained by conventional means. This revolutionary product allows the operator to maintain areas that are challenging to mow with existing mower technologies. With a 52" wide rotary cut, PTE rates the Slope-Pro for operation on side slopes up 50 degrees and with a working range of up to 300′ for the remote control.
 
As an innovative leading manufacturer of Turf and Grounds Care pull behind rotary mowers, PTE has been marketing products across North America under their 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 their 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-PROT 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, Ontario Canada.
 
Progressive Turf Equipment will Market the Slope-ProT worldwide, except Canada, United States and Mexico.
