“I believe we can save downtime and therefore money by having our cylinders ground and our machines serviced on site in accordance with a predetermined planned schedule”. — Mr Martin Jones, Course Manager, Bridgnorth Golf Club

“Cylinder grinding on our premises gives us peace of mind in that the machine will have minimum downtime whether it’s a repair or complete sharpening thats needed”. — Mr Paul Hyde, Course Manager, Hawkstone Park Golf and Country Hotel
What do they do?
Aeration equipment is used to bring water and air in close contact in order to remove dissolved gases (such as carbon dioxide) and oxidizes dissolved metals such as iron, hydrogen sulphide, and volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). Aeration is often the first major process at the treatment plant.
This would be massively useful on a golf corse making it the best expierence possible for players as well as maining the grounds to preserve them year after year. This would not be possible without Aeration equipment.
The best-selling SR72 is a versatile machine able to perform a wide range of aeration tasks up to depths of 40cm.
Light enough to use on greens and yet tough enough to use on even the most compacted soil, the SR72 – which offers a working width of 72in and maximum speed of 1.5mph – is as comfortable on the sports field as it is on the fairways.
The highly advanced and productive ProCore 864 is exceptionally quiet and smooth in operation.
A head drive system using precision balancing weights, similar to those found on a six-cylinder engine, appear on each coring head. This configuration eliminates hopping, rocking and uncomfortable vibration for a smooth, quiet action, and reduces operator fatigue.
Changing hole depths has been made easier and more reliable thanks to a high ratio gear-drive control mechanism. A RotaLink system ensures the tines remain vertical as they enter and leave the ground, producing a consistently circular hole as the tractor moves forward.
