A visit to Charterhouse Turf Machinery's stand at Saltex is a must for all turf professionals - the company has something for everyone, offering the market leading machinery brands for natural and synthetic turf.
Charterhouse is using Saltex as the launch pad for a number of exciting new products and also to announce updates to some of its proven designs.
Making its debut is the Rink DS 2000 Top Dresser with a massive 2 cubic metre hopper capacity offering high outputs. The DS 2000 runs on two large wheels for reduced ground compaction and requires a minimum 25 litres per minute oil flow.
Charterhouse's Sales Manager Nick Darking says: "This product has been designed by Rink in response to customer demand for a high output top dresser for contractors and to cover large areas. It comes from the same stable as our renowned Verti-Drain range, so is sure to be a winner for its durability and quality performance."
At the other end of the scale is the new Rink 940 SP Pedestrian Top Dresser, designed with those customers in mind who have limited access or someone not wishing to tie up a tractor. With a capacity of 200 litres, the 940 SP is powered by a 6.5hp Briggs & Stratton engine via a mechanical drive.
The popular DS 800 and 1200 Top Dressers have undergone substantial remodelling. Redexim have reshaped the hopper giving a lower overall height for easier loading. These models will be on display at Saltex in a new livery, the striking Redexim red.
The Verti Core II 1600 has also been redesigned to give a new look and 1.6 metre working width for high productivity on a variety of sportsturf. Belt drive to both sides of the machine gives a smooth transfer of power to the cranks. With a 10cm (4in) working depth, the Verti Core II 1600 requires a 40 hp tractor.
Showing the versatility of the Charterhouse range, the company's extensive synthetic maintenance product line will be on display, offering solutions for everything from routine maintenance of all-weather surfaces to specialist renovation.
And no visit to Saltex would be complete without inspecting the iconic Verti-Drain range, which now includes models from the pedestrian/ride on 7007 for restricted areas to the contractor-specification 7626 with its 2.6m working width and heavy duty mechanism for the toughest aeration jobs.
Charterhouse also has the Just Saws forestry division, and the stand will showcase the Hud-Son range of sawmills alongside the new Badger Firewood Processor, ideal for those who wish to make some serious money from their wood!
Nick comments: "We look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand as Saltex and showing them some exciting new additions to our range."
