Saltex is always a good opportunity to update oneself with what products are available - and no better stand to do that on than Charterhouse Turf Machinery. The company has a vast array of equipment to nurture natural surfaces and groom synthetic ones.
With end of season maintenance in mind the Groundsmans' attention will turn to Aeration, Scarifying, Top Dressing and Overseeding of grassed areas or rejuvenating synthetic ones.
On stand will be the recently launched Redexim Verti-Drain 1517; part of the new high speed 15 series that feature lighter weight machines. Suitable for use with a tractor from as little as 28hp, the 1517 weighs in at just 520kg but offers a productive 1.76m working width together with a depth of up to 150mm (6in).
Alongside will be examples from Charterhouse's extensive range of overseeders, from pedestrian spiked units to high capacity disc seeders, and the company's Rink topdresser line.
Continuing the theme of lighter units, the new Redexim Verti-Top 1200 for synthetic turf maintenance is a physically smaller machine that will be of particular use in more confined spaces. It is still a high work-rate machine having a 1.2M working width, but weighing in at only 360kg. It has all the features to maintain synthetic turf by removing, cleaning and redistributing the infill material, but with only the need for a 22hp tractor with a 400kg lift capacity.
