New tracker delivers full power in tight spaces

Terrain Aeration launches Airforce Tracker, the company's latest terralift aeration machine, following tests of the prototype in a waterlogged back garden. Weighing 400 kilos, 690mm wide, and mounted on twin rubber tracks that give a ground pressure of just 5 PSI, Airforce Tracker is nimble enough to work within established plantings, but delivers all the power of the ride on Airforce machines.

Terrain's MD David Green, who has designed and built the new model, says Tracker has the same hydraulic hammer and probe as his standard Airforce machines, but it's mounted on a Honda HP500 Powered Barrow. "The diesel powered compressor stays on the trailer and a 50 metre long, high pressure hose connects the two pieces of kit," he explains. "This means we can inject compressed air up to 20 bar, but have the manoeuvrability needed to work in small spaces."

Designed, principally to relieve compaction panning in domestic back gardens where access is generally limited, Airforce Tracker can be used to treat lawns between flowerbeds in municipal parks, and, due to it's light weight and low ground pressure, heavily waterlogged golf greens and sports fields.
