Wet weather boosts demand for Imants Sandcat

Poor weather has led to a boom in requests from golf courses and football clubs for Campey's new rotary decompactor - the Imants Sandcat.

"A lot of people have been having problems with water damage," said Campey sales director Simon Gumbrill.

He added: "We are sending it out for demonstrations this week and all of the sites are dealing with water-logging."

Shrigley Hall golf course in Cheshire, Ashton Under Lyne Golf Club and Ipswich Town Football Club are this week receiving demonstrations of the new piece of kit, which requires a 35hp tractor.

The Imants Sandcat needs kiln-dried sand for operation, which is pushed into a channel created by the machine.

"The sand does make it more expensive but it means the job is going to get done," added Gumbrill. "It does leave visible tram lines but the surface will be flat so it can be played on.

"The more rain we have, the easier it will be for us to sell this."
