Charterhouse Turf Machinery will have a very colourful stand at Windsor this year. Red with the great range of products from the Redexim stable and Green to display the newly represented Graden product line up. Visitors to stand M80 will see how the Graden machines complement the Redexim equipment for the care and maintenance of both natural and synthetic turf surfaces.
For natural surfaces the focus for the Graden machinery will be the Contour Sand Injection (CSI) and for Redexim the new Double Disc Overseeder range will be at the forefront.
The CSI is 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. Its ability to do both jobs in one pass significantly reduces the time investment required to do the job and reduces play downtime without causing any detrimental effect to the firmness of the ground. Independent STRI trials rate the Graden CSI as the most effective machine for the removal of thatch.
The Redexim Double Disc Overseeder Range will be shown at Winsor for the very first time. Launched to high acclaim earlier in the year at BTME, the Double Disc Seeders bury the seed up to 20mm (3/4") deep in the ground, safely away from the weather and the beaks of hungry birds, with a disc spacing of 30mm.
The DD Overseeder range contains 3 machines, the 1430, 1830 and 2230, offering working widths of 1.4m, 1.83m and 2.2m respectively. They effectively and accurately drop and bury the seed, taking undulating ground in their stride, promising good rates of germination.
A variety of machines will be on display from the Redexim synthetic range, but one to take particular notice of is the new look X-Treme Clean. This machine decompacts the toughest of sand based surfaces using firm brushes designed to penetrate the compacted surface. The carpet is decompacted bringing the infill to the surface to be removed, cleaned or worked back into the fibres.
The X-Treme Clean is ideal to regenerate tennis courts, sand-filled football fields and hockey fields.
