Apart from planned irrigation or design features like ornamental lakes, a lot of water is usually unwelcome on the golf course. Given the recent extremes of rainfall, flooded bunkers and waterlogging have been common at many leisure facilities, but help is now at hand with the TrunkPump from Campey Turf Care Systems.
The beauty of the TrunkPump is that it is powered by a tractor's PTO, rather than using a separate petrol or diesel engine. It is fitted in under a minute without tools, thanks to a patented attaching system, enabling one-man operation.
The pump primes within seconds for fast start-up, and it can move up to 1100 litres per minute. The unit's compact design also allows the hoses to remain attached during transportation and storage, giving maximum efficiency.
The TrunkPump provides a fast and effective way of removing water from many different areas and locations, not just golf courses, and special shallow-water strainers are available to ensure optimum pumping performance under various conditions.
The high work-rate and flexibility of the TrunkPump could make all the difference between a facility remaining open for play, or having to close and lose revenue.
