Agri Market Insight & Access (AMIA), based in Devon, is the exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland of Selvatici Amenity Machinery.

The range of machinery offered by Italian manufacturer Selvatici includes the Aeroking Vertical Drainage Aerators and the Sandqueen Sand Dispensers. On the 31stOctober 2019 AMIA, in partnership with Exeter City Football Club, are holding a Demonstration Day for the Selvatici Aeroking Aerators on the pitch at St James Park stadium.

Exeter City FC’s head groundsman Clive Pring says: “We have worked with AMIA for the last couple of seasons and used the machinery they have kindly leant to us as part of our partnership. It is always good to support those who support us, and we are delighted that Alan and the AMIA team can showcase their latest product with us at St James Park.”

Selvatici have been manufacturing in Italy for over 100 years near Bologna.  It has been manufacturing professional vertical drainage aerators for several decades which are now re-entering the UK and Irish markets after originally selling a number of units during the 1990s and early 2000s. Since then there have been a lot of innovations and improvements to the machines such as a new and more robust gearbox, completely renewed bodywork and a double lever for the front roller which ensures an easier lift.

AMIA Selvatici product specialist Beth Williams-Nichols says: “Selvatici’s range of Aeroking Vertical Drainage Aerators can be seen working at the majority of Serie A football clubs in Italy due to their excellent performance and reliability.”

Selvatici manufacture nine different models of the Aeroking Vertical Drainage Aerator ranging in sizes from a working width of 1.2m up to 2.5m with a good variety of additional extras such as self-levelling conveyors for cores when having used a hollow tine option.

Giulia Dal Fiumefrom Selvatici says: “We are delighted to be re-entering the UK and Irish markets as we believe our machines are a great option for groundcare professionals.”

  • Front roller with water ballast for depth adjustment
  • Patented toolpath guiding system that limits the thrust on the edges of the holes
