BLEC Sand Injector

To improve drainage on golf greens, fairways and tees, BLEC has developed a 1m-wide model of the Sand Injector. It can be used with compact tractors around 40hp, is three-point-linkage mounted and is PTO-driven direct from the tractor.

The Sand Injector has the ability to work at depths down to 200mm, producing slits of 15mm to 20mm in width and at 260mm spacings. Between five and nine tonnes of sand can be injected per green, with minimal surface disturbance and, reportedly, just a couple of hours' interruption to play.
