Saltex Round-Up

By , November 6, 2015 4:34 pm

Despite some reservations we made our way up to the Birmingham NEC to see the new indoor Saltex.

We arrived early on the Wednesday morning to support our suppliers, Advanced Turf Technology.

On the stand we had the 22″ and 30″ INFiNiSystems, with the battery option generating a lot of interest due to the no noise, no vibration, and no fumes benefits.

 

Throughout the day we saw a constant stream of people and we didn’t notice the day go by!

John Coleman, from ATT, paired up with Helen Taylor, Ecotricity Ambassador, and Matt Rainey, head groundsman at Forest Green Rovers for a presentation on the benefits of the 30″ ATT Battery powered INFiNiSystem. It was interesting to see how the INFiNiSystem was helping Forest Green Rovers on its journey to being the greenest football club.

In the evening we attended the IOG Saltex Awards dinner. The food was good and a great night was had by all. It was great to see the hard work being undertaken by groundsman being celebrated. It was an excellent opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new ones!

 

 

We had another good day on the Thursday and we were pleasantly surprised by the new indoor format- shame the same can’t be said for the traffic on the way home!

SALTEX Stand Number F187 – Quality Cut and Massive Fuel Savings

By , October 16, 2015 2:32 pm

Following on in the footsteps of his smaller brothers 22″ and 26″, the 30″ has been adapted for the need to “sports turf”. It brings “fine turf quality” by providing an exceedingly good quality of cut and performance for sports facilities.

The INFiNiSystem 30″ has a floating head design that sees the cutting unit independent of the traction unit. Therefore, the weight is spread across the mowing making end of line turning easier and decreasing overall ground pressure all without affecting striping. Regardless of the amount of grass in the bucket, the HOC remains consistent as the weight is transferred to the traction. The bedknife BCD and attitude angle can be set for an unsurpassed level of cut quality – whilst the programmable variable clip rate allows control of the various range of different SMART cassettes.

 

It provides much more functionality than any other 30″ wide pitch mower. Through the SMART cassette range, the INFiNiSystem allows the Groundsman to calibrate the machine exactly how they deem suitable for their particular situation. Its flexibility extends past cassettes as it has the ability to be powered both by hybrid or pure battery. By working solely as a battery it helps reduce noise pollution by being lower than any noise regulation legislative limits. It also aids with Hand-Arm vibration, a condition which once diagnosed cannot be cured but only alleviated. The annual fuel bill is where the 30″ INFiNiSystem really comes into its own. An entire football pitch can be mowed with dual DCLA batteries or a single LiPo battery costing no more than 50p. This also reduces the need to travel to collect fuel.

This machine is truly “Plug-and-Play” – charged over night and used in the morning!

With this many advantages, why not visit us on stand F187 at Saltex and see why you should Upgrade to ATT.
