Dennis and SISIS are renowned for their innovative, high quality British-built turfcare machinery and at BTME 2012 will present a range of products ideal for golf and other fine turf applications on stand A4.
Course managers looking to impress greens committees with a high quality purchase will find their needs ideally met by the FT510, featuring Dennis’s industry-leading cassette system.
This allows the operator to fit a range of attachments from brushes and spikers to scarifiers and slitters, as well as a choice of five or nine blade reels for maximum versatility.
The speed and ease of changing cassettes has made the FT range a firm favourite with busy greenkeepers. With a useful cut width of 51cm (20in), the FT510 is powered by the proven Honda GX160 engine.
To cut larger areas requiring a fine finish, including ornamental lawns and high presentation areas around the clubhouse, the 86cm (34in) working width G860 fits the bill ideally. A three-section roller makes for a smooth finish and easy turning without marking and the G860 also features the cassette system for an easy change to scarifying, verticutting and brushing tools, to make maintaining the extensive grounds of the club effortless, the mower can be fitted with a trailing seat.
For a tournament finish even on undulating greens, the Razor Ultra has an 11-bladed cutting cylinder, tungsten tipped groomer for lateral growth control and 56cm (22in) cutting width. Its ultra-short wheelbase improves manoeuvrability on the green and the operator-friendly design includes click height adjusters and stub free transport wheels. The Razor Ultra has been designed with busy greenkeeping teams in mind, with easy pull back for accurate alignment of the next run and a low noise, low vibration Honda Q9 engine.
Maintenance of fine turf is a SISIS speciality and the Autorotorake Mk5 is the ultimate heavy duty pedestrian scarifier for removal and control of thatch. A contra-rotating reel with specially designed tipped blades gives a clean, consistent cut and maximum thatch removal. A light scarifying reel can also be specified for a gentler action, and the Autorotorake Mk5 can also be fitted with brush or rolaspike reels.
Ideal for scarifying golf greens, tees and fairways the Rotarake TM1000 is designed to mount on a Cat 1 three point linkage, with float to follow ground contours, and offers a productive1m (39in) working width. Quick, simple depth setting without tools to 50mm and a collection box for use when working up to 25mm depth make for easy operation; the unit can also be offset to avoid running over the removed thatch when working without the box.
And why just aerate when you can make use of compressed air to beat compaction? The revolutionary Javelin AerAid 1500 aerates up to 127mm (5in) deep while injecting compressed air into the soil for the ultimate decompaction effect. The AerAid can also be fitted with alternative tines for other operations such as hollow coring and can be used without air for total versatility.
Ian Howard, Managing Director of Howardson Ltd, the parent company of Dennis and SISIS comments: “We have an excellent line-up of products on show at BTME, and look forward to introducing our leading edge technology and customer focused designs to course managers, greenkeepers and groundsmen at the show.”
