Following Terrain Aeration’s acquisition of the machinery assets of C&P Soilcare the Deep Drill, which Lynda Green (our Operations Director) originally imported from the USA in 1992, has come back under our control. In desperate need of an extensive overhaul, the machine was completely stripped and rebuilt in our workshops with many hundreds of worn out parts replaced.
The Deep Drill, now as good as new performs surface aeration on ALL TYPES OF TURF including golf greens, tees and fairways, cricket wickets, bowling greens, football and rugby pitches and parks.
The three wheeled, self propelled unit, driven by a Kubota 950, 21hp engine has a ground pressure of just 9 psi and is capable of treating approximately 240 sq metres of turf per hour.
60 tungsten tipped, 16mm diameter drills on a 12 by 5 grid with 125mm spacings give a drilling area of 1 square metre per cycle. These drills bore into the top 250mm of soil beneath the turf encouraging healthy root growth, improving surface drainage and increasing the uptake of nutrients.
Following treatment the spoil produced can be swept away and the drilled holes back filled with top dressing, soil improver's or soil activators according to your requirements. After that the surface can be played on immediately.
The Deep Drill was originally designed for and is ideal for the treatment of USGA SPEC or SAND BASED GOLF GREENS. The Deep Drill is the perfect top surface treatment to compliment Terrain Aeration’s one-metre deep, Terralift® aeration treatment.
