Who is distributing Imants' aerator and decompactor machinery in the UK?

Grounds care machinery specialist Campey Turf Care of Marton, near Macclesfield in Cheshire, has taken on the sole UK and Ireland distributorship for the Imants range of aerators and decompactors.

The range includes three sizes of Shockwave MKII decompactors. Named Revenge, this model's curved blades give a wave-like action that shatters soil and removes compaction without causing disturbance at the surface.

The working depth is from 120mm to 250mm for the 1.55m- and 2.1m-wide models. These units require 35hp and 45hp tractors respectively. The heavy-duty 2.2m-wide version reaches to a depth of 380mm but needs a tractor of 80hp or more and is likely to be of interest to contractors and those looking after areas prone to heavy compaction, such as racecourses.

Also carrying the Imants brand is the Rotoknife. Again, available in the UK and Ireland through Campey Turf Care, this slitter-aerator comprises a series of slitting discs suspended on individual axles with large-diameter rollers to the front and rear.

A control panel on the side of the Rotoknife's frame gives users the option of bringing one or two sets of mini discs into play for shallow slitting or thatch destruction, or large discs for deep slitting. Working depths can be set from 10mm down to 150mm.

The Rotoknife is suitable for golf greens and winter pitches. It has a 1.8m working width and is suitable for tractors from 45hp upwards.
