BTME PREVIEW 27 the Groundsman December 2012 The Grass Group will exhibit the Trilo S3 trailed vacuum sweeper, developed for use behind compact tractors delivering 28 HP plus at the PTO. Syngenta will launch the XC range of turf sprayer nozzles, which are designed to improve the accuracy and results from every application. The nozzles feature an innovative orifice design with a wide spray angle, to produce an improved droplet distribution capable of delivering even coverage at low nozzle heights. In addition, the design utilises new air induction technology to reduce the risk of spray drift while creating significantly more droplets to enhance leaf coverage. Each nozzle has a specifically calculated and tested rearwards facing spray pattern to counteract the forward movement of the sprayer to coat and protect all sides of the turf leaf. The 1.5 m working width S3 has a large, high tip 3 m3 capacity container and is ideal for collecting grass clippings, leaves and litter. Among other equipment on display will be the Rota-Dairon RGD140 disk overseeder, a 1,400 mm working width machine that uses discs to slice into the turf and a coulter to open the groove out to allow the accurate placement of seed. The opening is closed and firmed by a rubber press. The unit leaves a surface that can be pressed back into play immediately. Seed metering is extremely accurate, close row spacing minimising the number of passes required to re-seed broad areas.
