A new Wiedenmann Terra Spike GX8i HD was the stand out choice when the team at Kedleston Park Golf Club, Derby needed a new aerator. After a visit to BTME in Harrogate and a very thorough on site demonstration, the deal was struck.
Head greenkeeper, David Leatherland, who has held his post for over 35 years said: “For lots of reasons the GXi8 HD just suited us … its size; our type of course – our greens are built on sand with everywhere else clay- based; and the fit with our tractor. It was simply the right one.”
Since its arrival at the end of May, David and his team of six haven’t found fault. “Its main focus so far has been to pencil tine all greens which we plan to do on a monthly basis. Genuinely it’s as efficient and as neat as we’d hoped; a first class machine in every way.”
James Robson, Area Sales Manager at Wiedenmann dealer, Henton & Chattell, said: “KedlestonPark is both an exceptionally well- tended and busy course so the versatile GX8i HD at 1.8m wide combines high coverage with precision and really will do what they require.”
