The Maredo® GT210 VibeSpike-Aerator for the Greens fits your triplex greensmower and turns it into a spike aerator, using a special technique to drive the spikes in the soil.
We all know how hard it is to push a drum type spiker in the ground. You need a lot of weight and next you get damaged hole edges. Maredo has developed a new technique to overcome this problem. Maredo uses vibration to hammer a spike in the soil. The 6 spike sections are mounted around a driven camshaft. The spike sections roll over the ground and next they vibrate when the cam shaft is driven. This vibration helps to drive the spike in the soil, de-compact the soil and finally leave a nice, clean hole. Another great thing is that at the moment the spike reaches a hard spot, we only have to drive slower. We get more vibrations per spike, which hammers the spikes finally in the soil.
The maximum working depth is 35 mm. = 1-1/2” and can be adjusted over the front roller. The GT210 creates about 700 holes per square meter. The spike thickness is 3 mm. = 0.120”. It can be used at mowing speed and you can play right away. It is a quick way to open up the top layer of your greens and tees. Several customers uses them every 2-3 weeks, just before mowing the greens.
