Wiedenmann UK’s deep Terra Spike aerators with their combination of speed and accuracy give turf professionals an ace card when weather is unpredictable.
Taking advantage of prevailing conditions or pushing the button to “go” is made a lot easier if you can do the job in half the time.
A rugby or football pitch is easily manageable in less than three hours while it is widely possible to aerate all 18 golf course greens in just one day.
Chris Lynch, Grounds Manager at John Lyon School, Harrow-on the-Hill, at Sudbury Fields in North West London, has four full size football pitches, three junior size pitches, four training zones and three cricket squares.
On any given afternoon up to 200 pupils and PE staff from the independent boys’ day school, make full use of the playing facilities.
“With our previous aerator, we could expect to cover all 28 acres, minus the cricket squares, in five to six working days.
“Now with the Terra Spike GXi8 HD, the sports fields with the cricket squares included can be done in less than three days.
At the other end of the country at Banchory GC, Aberdeenshire, Course Manager, Richard Mullen said: “For us aeration needs to be done quickly without compromising standards.
“The GXi8 means we can reduce operator time, reduce fuel and importantly use just one machine.”
The faster machines from Wiedenmann give more windows of opportunity, an extremely important factor for facilities who need pitches to remain playable year round to attract bar revenue or golf courses who have allocated days for competitions and society golf.
Being able to make a quick decision depending on the weather and amount of play makes managing the maintenance that much easier, allowing the flexibility needed to complete this very important task.
