Terrain Expand Fleet Terrain Aeration has added two new machines to the company's Airforce Terralift fleet.
Responding to increasing demand for deep, compressed air de-compaction treatment on golf courses, M.D. David Green has built a second Airforce Scamper, a duplicate of the light weight, four wheeled ride-on unit that was launched at Saltex 2005, to increase company capacity during peak periods.
A new, improved version of Airforce Tracker, the pedestrian model mounted on caterpillar tracks has also emerged from Terrain's workshops, designed and built by Green for treating small, difficult to access areas, shrub beds, back gardens and turf around trees. This latest model should also perform well on slopes and uneven surfaces. "This machine is lighter by 150 kilos and has been built for greater stability," explains Green. "We've lowered the mast which is 20% lighter, lowered the air receivers and placed the load in the centre of the tracks. The improved stability allows the new Tracker to be safely operated by one person instead of two."
As both machines rely on compressed air supplied by an engine and compressor unit attached by an umbilical hose, Terrain Aeration have built a new power source combining a Kubota diesel engine with Atlas Copco compressors. David Green has also designed the electrical and air control circuits for this new engine and compressor unit.
This expansion means that Terrain Aeration is now ideally placed to supply deep aeration and de-compaction treatment to its growing list of customers.
