The revolutionary Core Reycler from Wiedenmann UK is set to clock up admirers up and down the country as it begins a series of demo days from now until the end of summer.
Over 60 customers of dealer, Ernest Doe and Sons at the Bennington and Esher branches were among the first to see it in action last month at Brocket Hall and Fulwell Golf Clubs.
The Core Recycler makes an immediate impact, saving labour, reducing top dressing volumes and hugely speeding up the process that follows aeration.
With dual functions it collects all cores from the surface and then recycles them really efficiently and effectively using a series of adjustable sieves.
Indigenous soil, sand and organic matter is then recycled back to the surface and in most cases, more than 60% of the core is 'saved' where previously it would all have been wasted.
Wiedenmann Gmbh's joint managing director, Jurgen Wiedenmann, attended Doe's Esher event which was staged at Fulwell Golf Club, Middlesex and commented that seeing nine Wiedenmann machines in action all at once made him feel immensely proud.
"It was really good fun and informative and seeing the way individual Wiedenmann machines like the Terra Spike aerator, the Mega Blower and the Terra Rake co-ordinated and came together as a team to support the Core Recycler made a genuine impression.
It was a very real insight into the vast impact they can have on the health and maintenance of a golf course. As their duties unfolded it wasn't just like watching a demo it was more like watching a show."
