Spiker Slitter for ultra dwarf greens

Using the Spiker Slitter on our Ultra Dwarf greens has proved very successful, particularly during periods of high play. Ultra Dwarf grasses are dense so using a Spiker Slitter between regular aerating improves air and water exchange. With the Spiker Slitter and Twinplay set on my tractor I can do all 18 greens in 2-3 hours.

The fields at Hillcrest High just better & better

The athletics facilities at Hillcrest High School in Simpsonville, SC, were built in the 1950's and are Bermuda, overseeded with perennial rye. The fields had never been verticut so a deep thatch layer had built up. With the level of play there was also considerable compaction.

Sold on the spot!

It is always satisfying when a demonstration goes well - but we can't beat our experience at Golden Hills Country Club in Lexington, SC. Supt. Chad Berry was so impressed with the SISIS Multislit deep slicer on its prototype attachment frame for Cushman trucksters, that he bought (and paid for) the lot on the spot!

SISIS Auto-Rotorake "Most effective treatment"

Five years ago SISIS North America was delighted to supply an Auto-Rotorake to the University of Florida. The Auto-Rotorake fitted with the verticutting reel was the only de-thatcher used for a research project into UltraDwarf grasses. The Auto-Rotorake has proved very reliable over the length of the project and was found to be the most effective treatment for the removal and control of the build-up of excess organic matter.

Pocklington School

The SISIS Flexicomb has 60 sets of polypropylene bristles which can be made stiffer or softer by adjusting the crossbar. On synthetic surfaces the Flexicomb ensures even distribution of infill material and lifts the pile. The Flexicomb is very effective on natural turf and can, depending on the chosen setting, be used as a brush or as a rake.

The SISIS Javelin leads the field for versatility

The Javelin Aer-Aid 1500 from SISIS is one such machine. However, it differs from others in that it not only aerates with a vertical action, but also injects air into the root zone at a fast working rate, creating thousands of fissures. The cam trigger mechanism ensures that the air is always expelled at the bottom of the tine penetration, enabling treatment to be targeted precisely and consistently.

SISIS Rosca helps to keep synthetic playing surfaces to perfection

There is a need to avoid cross contamination when carrying out a maintenance regime on a synthetic surface. This can often occur if an existing ride-on is used to tow brushes that have both been previously used on a natural grass pitch. Not only is this mandatory to maintain FIFA accreditation, but also common sense.

Routine maintenance with a SISIS Rosca

The need for a routine maintenance regime to get the best out of a synthetic surface, and to prolong its life, is a must. However, to fulfil an FIFA accreditation for a synthetic pitch it is important to avoid cross contamination, which could occur if you use an existing ride-on to tow a brush. A dedicated machine should be specified such as a sisis Rosca ride-on brush system.

SISIS Dart proves a hit for bowls club

The SISIS Dart is hitting the bullseye at Goodwood Bowls Club in Leicester. Purchased at the end of 2010 to replace an older aerator that was so cumbersome the greenkeepers were reluctant to use it, the Dart's ease of handling and vertical action have proved highly popular.

Osca 3 rejuvinates synthetic playing surfaces

A synthetic playing surface often gets more use than a natural one. It is therefore imperative that Groundsmen should have a regular brushing programme, suitable for the area and usage. A programme of light brush between play, and now and again a more intense brushing to stand the pile or fibre up, is recommended.
