Trilo S3

The Trilo S3 is a perfect vacuum sweeper for clearing grounds and fields. The Trilo S3 is a small tip truck with a working width of 1.50m. Its modest dimensions and large suction power enable you to work quickly and efficiently, in small areas and in wet conditions. The machine can be equipped with various options like a gully brush, twisted flail shaft or a verticut shaft. This makes the S3 a versatile machine, to use all year round.

Trilo SG1170

The TRILO SG1170 has been designed with the notion of combining two successful machines from the TRILO range. By using the largest vacuum turbine in combination with the compact undercarriage taken from the SG700, the result is a high power machine which generates a very large suction force, thanks to the use of a large pump and a low surface pressure. The whole machine takes a more compact form ensuring that less damage is caused to your ground. The balanced fan and dual-walled housing provide for a resistant, reliable and most importantly, safe power source.

Trilo SU 40

The TRILO SU 40 vacuum unit makes light work of collecting leaves, litter, horse droppings and grass-clippings. The material is picked up using the 3.5m wander hose, it passes through the four bladed armoured fan and is shredded before being blown into the trailer. This reduces the volume of material being collected. The fan is V-belt driven so the drive isn’t straight on to the crank, thus reducing possible damage. The driveline is straight forward and easy to maintain. The advanced fan design creates less noise and low resistance and is statically and dynamically balanced to ensure smooth operation and long life.

Call Robin Sugg on 07557 200498

Trilo SU 60

The TRILO SU 60 vacuum units have been developed to allow rapid vacuuming of leaves, litter, grass, wood chippings etc. The machine is installed onto a quick transport undercarriage with rotating nose wheel. Couple it, take it with you and start working. The balanced fan and dual-walled pump housing provide for a resistant, reliable and most importantly, safe power source. The driveline is provided by a quiet fan belt transmission which is connected to a Honda V-twin petrol engine. The adjustable exhaust spout can rotate 360 degrees and be set to any desired angle so that material located in even the most inaccessible places can be extracted into the vehicle’s container.

Trilo C15 Flail / Scarifier Collector

The TRILO C 15 is a fully mounted, PTO driven flail / scarifier collector with a working width of 1.5m, built to the very high standard associated with the TRILO range of machines. Specifically designed for tractors of 28 DIN HP and above, requiring a single acting hydraulic system to operate the hopper emptying mechanism. A multipurpose machine, this robust and compact unit will cut and collect grass from rough or fine areas, scarify and collect leaves, moss, horse droppings and other
debris. The 18 wind paddles fitted to the heavy duty finely balanced rotor ensure a thorough uptake of material. Fitted with 3mm scarifying blades, the TRILO C 15 will, in one pass, leave an aerated and well groomed finish – regenerating previously matted and stale ground. The heavy duty twisted flail or back to back flail blades can be
easily fitted using the unique blade locking system designed specifically to make life easier for the end user. The material is discharged by operating the cab-mounted single acting hydraulic lever which raises the rear of the hopper, allowing compact tidy heaps to be deposited at disposal sites.

Widenmann Core Recycler

Collection/separator combination for collecting and processing cores. The CORE RECYCLER is a unique machine on the market for golf greens and tees. Its sweeping head unit gently takes up cores that have been previously punched out and transfers them to the separator. This unit consists of four turning, individually settable drum screens. Rough organic components such as thatch are separated from the bound sand. The sand is subsequently returned to the earth and the organic mass is pitched into the collecting container. This action means a considerable time and cost saving for surface sanding, since up to 80% of the valuable sand/ground mixture is reintroduced into the turf.

GKB Sandfiller

The GKB Sandfiller has been designed to tackle the problem of surface drainage and aeration on golf courses, especially on “greens”. As the topsoil is aerated and filled with sand, the conditions for excellent root growth are created. In order to properly follow the contours of the underlying soil, three adjustable depth rollers are used. There is a slitting rotor situated between the conveyor rollers, and this is used for aeration and verticutting. The two rear conveyor rollers are pivoted in order to distribute the weight efficiently. The material that is removed from the top layer through verticutting is immediately collected in a sideways-tipping container. The flow of sand is controlled
hydraulically by means of an adjustable valve on the side of the machine.For golf courses and sports fields where surface water and moss forming are a problem, the new Sandfiller offers the perfect solution. The network that it creates ensures faster drainage and intensive aeration, resulting in a higher level of playing capacity.
