Official machinery supplier to the FA’s Pitch Improvement Programme, Charterhouse Turf Machinery will be showcasing a vast array of equipment for the care of both natural and artificial sports surfaces at this year’s Saltex. Of particular interest on Stand K070 will be the Redexim Multi-Sport and the Graden range of Verticutters.
Being shown at Saltex for the very first time is the Multi-Sport, a combination implement tool. The Multi-Sport comes equipped with a slitter, rake, roller and brush meaning multiple tasks can be conducted with one machine and one pass if required. All of the tools can be independently adjusted offering the operator complete control over the work or amount of pressure applied to the surface. It has a working width of 180cm and a total weight of 325kg to ensure tool penetration, with additional weight trays in the slitter and roller sections allowing additional weight to be applied should ground conditions demand this. Because of the machines versatility, effectiveness and value for money, the Multi-Sport has become particularly popular with grassroots football clubs engaged with the FA’s Pitch Improvement Programme.
Complementing the Redexim machinery, products from the Graden range will be another highlight. The Graden GBS 1200 is a 1.2m straight reeled unit ideal for flat areas such as sports pitches, cricket squares, tennis courts etc. This model can be mounted onto a 20hp+ tractor and has the ability to scarify to various depths of up to 45mm. The Graden Swing Wing, another PTO driven model, as well as the pedestrian GS04 will also be on display.
Visitors will also be able to see machines from the Verti-Drain® range; the Rink topdresser range as well as the Pedestrain Carrier, highlighted at Saltex 2015.
