Groundsman Industries DT30150

The new deep-tine aerator introduced by Groundsman Industries has four major patented innovations, which the company believes give the machine a distinct advantage over the competition.

An independent crank suspension absorbs impacts while helping protect the machine, tines and operator from undue stress. A quick-change anti-release tine-holder system uses a single bolt to release multiple tines. The machine also has an automatic depth-control option to ensure that when set shallow, consistent depth will be maintained on undulating terrain. When set at maximum depth, the ground roller will automatically be adjusted to remain on the ground.

The DT30150 weighs in at 750kg. It has a 1.5m working width and can penetrate to 300mm at a moderate pace. Accessories include a large range of quick-change tines for solid, needle and hollow-coring, plus the Flex-blade Core Collector. A 2.25m machine is expected in mid-2010.
