Leading TORO Distributor Wesco Turf Partners With GreenSight

Wesco will be the exclusive regional distributor of GreenSight’s TurfCloud management platform and TurfSight drone intelligence platform to golf courses in their territory which includes most of Florida and southern counties in Georgia.


Wesco Turf headquarters in Sarasota, FL

Wesco Turf, Inc. was created in 1987 when William (Bill) Gamble III purchased Wesco Zaun from the Toro Company. Bill originally had a background in the hardware business, most recently taking part in the buyout group that bought McCulloch Chain Saw from Black and Decker. Bill came to Wesco with a simple philosophy: "If you take care of your customers and associates, the business will take care of itself. Superior parts and customer service has been the hallmark of our company. We hire great people and put them in the right job. We manage to have some fun as well.”

“We are very excited about this partnership with Greensight and what it means for today’s Golf Course Superintendent. The benefit from the GreenSight technology combined with the innovations of the TORO product line is an excellent path to stay ahead in the fast pace world of Golf Course Management. This technology provides a preemptive look at the ever-changing course conditions and allows the superintendent to get ahead of potential issues and manage their resources precisely. Our world has changed and the GreenSight technology will help our customers become better environmental stewards,” comments Dave Rogers, Director of Golf Irrigation for Wesco Turf, Inc.

Announcing the Dreamer Drone with 60 Minutes of Usable Flight Time

Here at GreenSight, we don’t announce concepts, we announce real products. This week we’re proud to announce our Dreamer drone with the longest flight time in its class. It has been in development now for over a year, and flying at customer sites all over the US and Canada now for over 6 months. A beautiful blend of endurance, stability, reliability and safety. We’ve already logged over 700 flights and 350 hours in the air.

The aircraft can stay in the air for over 60 minutes while carrying GreenSight’s custom multi-spectral camera package (visual, IR,thermal), and up to 75 minutes empty or with lighter payloads. We can gather high resolution imagery of over 300 acres per flight. As part of our flight control avionics, we developed a custom on board battery health management system that allowed us to use among the highest energy density batteries available while also ensuring safe and reliable flights. The system also features an on board charger which makes automated docking and recharging possible.

We offer an optional RTK GPS receiver, enabling the vehicle to know its global position at 1 cm accuracy. This means Dreamer can land precisely and repeatably in our Canopy docking station for automated recharging, and generate survey accurate maps.
