Principally aimed at the renovation of golf course bunkers, the sand storm can also handle other materials that may benefit from a screening process. Vibrating screens on the Sand Storm work to remove debris such as leaves, twigs, needles, weeds, stone and clay particles. The screens will also trap silt deposits on their surface, allowing for wash off and removal. The process remixes the sand particles and 'fluffs' it to a like new condition.
Eliminating settling and compaction as well as cleaning away unwelcome contamination the Sand Storm can dramatically improve the playing characteristics of the bunker and reduce the need for major sand replacement or renovation programmes where bunker contamination is a headache.
Says Sales Manager, David Timms, ' It is not surprising in the current financial squeeze that many organisations are considering hire rather than the purchase of capital equipment. However, the huge interest in the Sand Storm indicates that this cost concern doesn't affect just machinery but all materials and practices.
A lot more clubs are now becoming interested in the renovation results they can achieve recycling their existing material, rather than replacing. In the past we have treated hire in a rather ad hoc fashion, but as a result of the upturn in enquires this summer we are now organising ourselves to be able to hire the units on a national basis'.
The Sand Storm is available from JSM Distribution and hire rates start from £350 (+ vat) per week, plus delivery. Lo-Call 0845 026 0064.
