Artificial Grass Maintenance to unveil surface maintenance device at IOG SALTEX 2009

Artificial Grass Maintenance will launch a multi-functional surface maintenance device called the Renew at IOG SALTEX this year.

The company believes it will redefine regular artificial surface maintenance for goundsmen on sand-dressed, sand-filled and 3G surfaces.

Incorporating multi-functionality, the Renew can brush, decompact, distribute and finish in a single pass.

Specially designed brushes lift the pile and loosen the infill, while fully adjustable angled tines decompact, giving a softer playing surface. The angle of the tines follows the surface, preventing snagging or seam damage.

A flexible and height-adjustable spreader bar distributes and levels the infill. A back-finishing brush then smoothes the surface.

The lightweight, contour-hugging, flexible frame combined with adjustable tines and spreader bar allow the Renew to be used on surfaces of any age and condition.

Artificial Grass Maintenance recommends the Renew be pulled by a tractor of 13.5hp or above. It is 119cm long, 118cm wide, 38cm high and weighs 80kg.

It will be shown for the first time at this year's IOG SALTEX at Windsor Racecourse on 8-10 September.

The machine will cost less than £1,000 and is manufactured at the company's headquarters in March, Cambridgeshire.
