The latest addition to the range of turf aeration equipment is the Air 2G2. This machine is perfect for tackling deep seated compaction on and around golf greens.
This machine is used on golf courses around the world, the Air 2G2 self-propelled Air Injector, uses air to shatter the hard pan created through normal to heavy everyday activity on the course. Poor soil conditions caused by drought, excessive root encroachment, flooding or general over use of the surface, can all be alleviated quickly and effectively with the Air 2G2.
The Air 2G2 works on the principle of injecting compressed air vertically and horizontally over an area of 5ft (1.5m) to 12″ (35cms) deep (depending upon probe fitting). This causes a fracturing effect of the compacted rootzone, with no surface disruption. Play on greens and fairways, tees and around bunkers can be resumed immediately following the treatment.
The benefits include improved growth in the root zone through good micro biotic activity. Better drainage and aeration provides a more efficient take-up of nutrients and moisture that will have long term beneficial effects to the soil structure and health of the grass.
