SISIS Javelin Aer-Aid relieves compaction

Compaction related problems are common place on golf courses. Dry patch, black layer and excessive thatch all lead to an inconsistent course surface. Compaction reduces the air spaces between the soil particles; restricting the passage of air, water and nutrients through the rootzone. The patented SISIS Javelin Aer-Aid 1500 machine greatly increases the speed of the aeration process by directly injection air into the rootzone 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. The overall result is reduced compaction and a healthier root growth. The 10mm diameter ‘tipped’ tines are spaced at 75mm (three inches) with depth of penetration infinitely variable to a maximum of 127mm (five inches). The air injection tines are designed to use the maximum air available from the compressor and produce clean, fresh air. Surface disturbance is also kept to a minimum.

The Javelin Aer-Aid 1500 has a working width of 1.5 meters and is extremely quiet in operation. It can be powered by a compact tractor as little as 30hp which also keeps weight on the surface to a minimum. Used at the correct speed and depth, it can aerate an average green in under 20 minutes, whilst leaving an even finish that can be played on immediately afterwards.

Changing tines is simple and quick with very little maintenance needed on the machine. Alternative tines for other operations, such as hollow coring before top dressing, are available to make this SISIS a truly versatile aerator.
