1 Introducing Martyns/ STEC Ground Quake Sand Injector

stec 1Martyns Lawns Dunmore Co Galway Ireland has been the leading distributors of Lawn Turf and supplier of course and grass cutting equipment in Ireland for the past 25 years. We also import and export machinery directly from the USA for the European Market. In 2008 in conjunction with STEC USA (Specialized Turf Equipment Company) of South Carolina we have developed the Ground Quake Sand Injector this machine is capable of performing both de-compaction and sand slitting in a SINGLE PASS.

With our contacts in the USA and due to the down turn in the world economy we saw a niche in the market and a real need for a machine that could de-compact the ground and prevent rain water run off during heavy rain, and so the Ground Quake Sand Injector was born. The Ground Quake Sand Injector is designed and built in Ireland with the latest 3D CAD design and with electric and hydraulic movement.

With three 10" long blades per flange, working on 10" centers, this machine quakes the ground from side to side as the blades rotate. This results in optimal de-compaction by laterally fracturing the soil profile, while also backfilling the trench. With vibration in the chutes and hopper, as well as a triple agitator system inside the hopper, the Ground Quake is able to use a variety of soil amendments. Permitting use of damp sand, pea gravel, or any other material you choose, this gives you added versatility while greatly reducing cost

stec 4The Ground Quake Sand Injector comes with a rear roller system that evenly distributes the machine's weight across the ground, eliminating any heave. It connects to any tractor, with either hydrostatic drive or one fitted with creep speed, by the drawbar. When not in use it can be easily transported by hydraulically lifting it onto its four turf tires. We have also given it a centralized greasing system and self lubricating chain, for low and easy maintenance. The Ground Quake Sand Injector is unrivaled in quality, engineering and output. With one person, one tractor, and the Ground Quake Sand Injector you can quickly and easily de-compact and sand slit in one pass. Whether you are improving surface drainage, amending your soil profile, or supplementing sub-surface drainage, this machine will save you time and money.

To date we have sold the Ground Quake Sand Injector to countries such as Japan Australia Canada, and recently to one of the most prestidous golf courses in Georgia USA.

For the future we are in discussion with 2 major European distribution companies who are interest in handling the distribution of the Ground Quake Sand Injector, and we hope that Ground Quake Sand injector can continue its popularity and can go from strength to strength in the future.
