The iconic Verti-Drain® from Charterhouse continues to set the bar when it comes to aeration, helping leading turf managers around the world to achieve optimum soil conditions. Offering a 1.9m working width, the new Verti-Drain® 2519 is set to become the tool of choice for turf managers looking for a high productivity, high-speed aerator.
Offering a PTO speed of up to 540rpm, it can cover up to 8739sq.m per hour when spaced at 165mm. As standard, the Verti-Drain® 2519 comes with 12mm solid tines, but it can accept a range of solid tine options up to 19mm, and hollow tines for coring. This versatility, combined with a variable working depth of up to 250mm, makes it suitable for an array of end users, across the full spectrum of the maintenance calendar. Together with a new draw-rod system, it features an easy to adjust heave lever and slip clutch PTO drive. With practicality and finesse at the heart of the machine, the 2519 also features new livery and styling.
Within the Redexim Verti-Drain® range are machines to suit all surfaces and applications, from smaller units for work on golf greens, through to high work-rate units demanded by busy sports turf contractors. The range spans working widths from 1.0m to 2.6m, offering variable working depths and a selection of different tine options. Using the Verti-Drain® with a range of different tine options can maximise the effectiveness of aeration work conducted throughout the year.
Micro-tining can be employed during periods of drier weather to help keep the surface from “capping” over and create a path down through the profile, helping to maximise the effects of irrigation and nutritional programmes. During the winter months, deep aeration to say 12 or 14” during any relatively dry periods will help to keep surfaces playable; draining and free from puddling.
To get the very best out of your Verti-Drain®, Charterhouse also provide a range of genuine tines. Whilst spurious tines may be a little cheaper to purchase in the first instance, it is rare that these parts will deliver the lifespan or wear tolerance of the genuine article. A turf management programme conducted with well-maintained equipment will pay off in both the health and presentation of a surface.
