A new chapter in the history of Charterhouse Turf Machinery will unveil itself at BTME 2015 on stand B48 when 'Green' joins 'Red'. For the first time in Harrogate, Graden machines will complement the Redexim equipment for the care and maintenance of natural turf surfaces.
The Graden range of verticutters are renowned for their depth of cut as well as their ingenuity with products like the Contour Sand Injector (CSI) - a scarifier/aerator with the ability to scarify to any depth between 1mm-40mm, whilst simultaneously backfilling the grooves with either sand or a combination of sand and seed. Because it is able to do both jobs in one pass, play downtime is reduced without causing any detrimental effect to the firmness of the ground.
From the Redexim stable comes innovative machinery like the Verti-Quake 2516 - a linear aerator which decompacts the soil via 18 rotating off-set blades. With a working width of 1.6m, the Verti-Quake works to a depth of 250mm to vastly improve drainage, root development and the uptake of moisture and nutrients.
Charterhouse will also be displaying the DS800 topdresser from their highly successful Rink range. This twin-disc topdresser spreads material up to 15m wide and can successfully operate light, heavy or wet applications. The DS800 has a hopper capacity of 0.8m3, a working speed of 19mph and the benefit that the spreading pattern and density - determined by the tractor spinner and conveyor belt speed - can all be controlled easily from the tractor seat.
