The SISIS team of designers and engineers have been working closely with groundsmen, greenkeepers and course managers, throughout the country, to ensure that the launch of the new Rotorake 600HD meets the high expectations that the company sets.
This heavy duty pedestrian scarifier and linear aerator can be used for regular, routine use at a shallow setting or a deeper setting as and when required. It also contributes to aeration and compaction relief by cutting clean, continuous slits to assist water and air absorption. Featuring a new, modern design with more responsive manoeuvrability makes the Rotorake 600HD more operator-friendly.
Following numerous ‘out in the field’ demonstrations and research through a ‘focus group’ method in the harshest of environments with groundsmen, greenkeepers and course managers, the machine has proven to be successful on a range of different grass species.
Like other scarifiers in the SISIS range, the Rotorake 600HD works on the successful contra-rotating principle developed by the company in the 1960’s, and has the effect of throwing the removed thatch forwards as well as firmly holding the machine to the ground to give a consistent working depth. This is a precision machine which can be used on bowling greens, croquet lawns, tennis courts, cricket pitches, golf courses and ornamental lawns & gardens.
Advantages of the new model include ease of use, a range of quick-release, interchangeable reels including scarifying, verticutting and brushing, variable blade spacing/depth for control on the move, large working width of 600mm (24”), six forward speeds and a reverse gear for efficiency under varying terrain, an independent drive to the wheels and reel for operator safety and a collection box.
“We are delighted to launch the Rotorake 600HD at IOG SALTEX,” said SISIS Sales Manager Toby Clarke. “We are very excited with this new product and are confident that it will be extremely successful with our customers.”
