Phoenix Tines: More than Mythology…!

By Grassgroup, April 11, 2017 10:17 am

Much like its name sake would suggest – the Phoenix™ Tines from The Grass Group are forged in fire through a patented thermo-chemical process. During which almost all of the iron (Fe) is displaced for a new, much harder element. This unique multi-step process creates a tighter cell structure than the original alloy. Phoenix™ Tines are additionally processed in a vacuum under extreme heat and pressure resulting in tines of outstanding durability and performance.

All Phoenix™ Tines are guaranteed to last as long as comparable carbide tipped coring Tines, but in tests Phoenix™ tines have actually far surpassed the carbide in use-life and  they also do not rust like other tines due to their ‘anti-rust’ coating – win.

Phoenix™ Tines are resilient and super tough, this results in benefits that include:

  • Less broken and chipped tips
  • Less time spent searching for lost tips
  • Less side-wear above the tip
  • Reduced ‘grow-in’ time

With technology that ultimately delivers better value for money and a great list of benefits that clearly add up, why would you opt for anything else…?

Email sales@thegrassgroup.com today to find out which products are available in the Phoenix™ finish. They really are that good!

Cricket Renovation

By Grassgroup, August 17, 2015 9:07 am

As we near the end of the cricket season it is important to look forward to cricket pitch renovation. It is necessary to perform such a task very shortly after the last match so as to prevent the square from looking too sparse and to allow optimum regrowth before the next season.

Here at The Grass Group we have compiled some suggestions for renovating your pitch.

 

If you are looking for a complete renovation fraise mowing may be necessary.

The GKB Combinator is an apt machine for such a task, removing the top layer of grass and thatch accumulation.

For a slightly lighter approach, you can use the tractor drawn ED130 which uses its brush to collect as it scarifies. Alternatively, aggressively brushing the pitch to remove soil and debris can begin the process of renovation.

 

 

Aerification of the soil in a linear vertical, horizontal and diagonal fashion is optimal. Lots of smaller little holes tend to provide the best results. It may be necessary to flood the pitch several times in order for the ground to be soft enough for a sarel spiked roller. Our ATT TMSystem range has a sarel spiked roller perfect for the job at hand! If you use a different type of aerator, CTI tines could be complementary.

 

Next comes the OverSeeder. The small holes made during aerification have prepared the soil for the even deep spreading of the seed.

If there are particular areas that have been affected then applying a light coating of loam would be beneficial. OverSeeding can be done on a larger scale using the RGD140 or on a   smaller scale with the Seed Car.

 

 

As always, there are many different ways to renovate a cricket pitch and it is dependent on your preferences, pitch and weather conditions.
