Charterhouse Turf Machinery were the first company to introduce the high speed Verti-Drain some 15 years ago. They continue to push the boundaries andupdate the machinery as the market dictates.The most recent advancement fromCharterhouse Turf Machinery,is the launch of the new Redexim Verti-Drain 1517.
The new 15 series models are a little lighter than their 7 series range without loss of robustness or productivity. The first of the 15 series is the 1513 which gives a working width of 1.3M and now the company has introduced the 1517 with a much greater 1.76M width.
These high speed Verti-Drainsoffer increased outputs to ease busy workloads; handling depths of up to 50mm (6") but only weighing in at 520kg,soonly needing a tractor from 30hp to operate it.
Gone is the need to compromise on working widths, and productivity, if you only have recourse to a sub 30hp tractor. The 1517 is everything expected from a normal Verti-Drain - the same unique Redeximadjustable parallelogram action that has becomethe industry standard solution for intensive aeration of sports turf surfaces.
The action is a 'forced heave'one to shatter pans of compacted soil that prevent free drainage and inhibit grass growth. The result is minimised waterlogging and reduced standing water in periods of heavy rain.On the golf course this means uninterrupted year-round play without resorting to temporary greens, and can reduce the need for expensive drainage works.
Options on the Redexim Verti-Drain 1517 are hollow tines; turf hold down fingers and multi tine blocks.
