The AFT Wizz wheel 75 MK2 has proven itself capable of the highest performance levels in some of the least friendly terrain in the UK.

Hugh Murray of Greentech Sportsturf Limited is a professional Contractor, uses AFT equipment for sand slitting on golf courses across Scotland and the North of England. "We are currently using an AFT Wizz Wheel 75 MK2 at Cameron House Loch Lomond for sand slitting fairways." Said Hugh "Much of our contract work is based in central Scotland where weather conditions are temperamental to say the least. On the rare occasions when conditions are good, it is possible to sand slit 2,500 to 3,000 metres at one metre centres 300mm deep 50mm wide, per day, using the AFT 75." Hugh explained "I know some contractors in other parts of the UK would be delighted to achieve this output on a daily basis. But even when the conditions are poor, which I have to say is more often than not in this area, we still achieve very high work rates through our contract works based in central Scotland."
