Campey Turf Care launched several new machines at BTME 2014 leading the way for change in 2014.
The first machine was the VGR Top Changer - and true to its name - this machine will definitely bring about change. It provides the ultimate in aeration improvement - laying the foundations for achieving excellent turf.
The Top Changer combines the actions of aeration and sanding in one efficient action. It weighs only 903kgs and has a working width of 5.2ft and produces a closely spaced row of holes which are immediately filled with sand and both liquid and solid amendments.
This allows a path for air and water to penetrate the top layer of soil and be absorbed directly into the root zone to encourage rapid growth and healthy development of the grass, and over a period of time completely change the top surface without any interference in play.
The advantages are:
• Dual action reduces the number of actions required to maintain the greens.
• Play can be resumed sooner due to a smooth finish and a fast recovery period.
• Sand maintains the stability of the holes for more sustained improvement of drainage.
• The Top Changer can deliver wetting agents, nutrients, fertilisers and any other additives, both liquid and solid.
The new blue AIR 2G2 Air Injector works all summer without disrupting play!
Shown for the first time at BTME is the Air 2G2 - a new machine from America that has created quite an impact. The Air 2G2 air injector is proving to be an excellent form of total aeration for golf greens and other fine turf area especially during the summer months, as there is no disruption to the playing surface whatsoever.
Remember - Air is everything to anything that lives
The Air2G2 is designed to use pressured air to aerate deep into the soil. It works by injecting air at a depth of 7 to 10 inches, fracturing the ground horizontally and forcing the air upward to de-compact the soil around the root zone, creating air pores for the grass roots to develop.
