Louise Prettymanin Machinery & Mechanics

With so many new products The Grass Group has had to double its stand size at BTME 2015! In part it's to make room for new signing GKB machinery, plus an expanded showing from Trilo. Established brands like ATT, RotaDairon and CTI Tines have also been accommodated.

BL960 Crop
One of the highlights from the Trilo portfolio will be the BL960 Blower, designed to be one of the most powerful on the market. The BL960 is fitted with a 960mm fan complete with 9 fan blades providing a large capacity and far reaching air making it ideal for use in large parks or on the golf course. It is driven by a Walterscheid PTO shaft and can optionally be equipped with a 180 degree reversible spouts which can be operated from the driver's seat.

Selected out of the innovative GKB range of equipment will be the Sandfiller. This machine is ideal for golf courses and sports fields where surface water and moss forming are a problem. It provides economic and environmentally-friendly aeration of the top layer by using three adjustable depth rollers and a slitting rotor. It can then fill the trenches with sand - the flow of which is controlled hydraulically by a valve on the side of the machine.

Sandfiller (7)
Following on the heels of last year's launch of the ATT INFiNiSystem™ in a 26" configuration, comes a whopping 30" version! This pedestrian unit will be kept under wraps until its launch at BTME 2015.

Making its first appearance at BTME, and extending the comprehensive range of seeding machinery available from RotaDairon, is the pedestrian propelled SEED-CAR - perfect for small spaces, or those with difficult accesses, it has a working width of just 700mm and weighs in at 51kg, but offers a 55 litre capacity. The SEED-CAR has an integral 18kg rear roller and height adjustable handlebar, complete will all controls, for easy seed distribution.

No newcomer to BTME is CTI Tines, exclusively from The Grass Group. In the field of replacement tines and bedknives, their one piece solid rod construction from 4140 superior steel is gaining acknowledgement as 'best-in-class'. They exceed the norm and lead to a longer life, with optimum wear, and are considered to provide significant operational performance with value for money.

Smokers will be sad not to see (lean on!) a Progressive mower outside of Hall A but that slot will be taken by a Trilo S3 - a compact and economical vacuum sweeper with a loading capacity of three cubic metres.
