Core Recycling - Is it Really Worth It? by Paul Brown, Fulwell Golf Club
The Core Recycler is a manually controlled machine with an internal combustion engine and hydrostatic drive unit (continuously variable 0-6 km/hr). The drives of the drum screens and sweeping unit function hydraulically. The operator can select hydraulic high lift emptying with an unloading height of 1.5 m or hydraulic ground tilt emptying to ensure that the collecting container is rapidly and easily emptied. An optional transportation system for mounting to a utility vehicle is available for rapid and reliable deployment of the Core Recycler. Its hydraulic tip down loading surface is equipped with a rapid locking system for the machine.
The Core Recycler is unique to the market. Its sweeping head unit gently removes cores and transfers them to the separator unit. This unit consists of four revolving drum screens with individually adjustable inclination angles. Coarse organic components such as thatch are separated from the bound sand. The sand is then returned to the soil through the drum screens, and the organic matter is collected in the container. This procedure translates into a considerable time and cost savings for sanding the areas, since up to 80% of the valuable sand/ground mixture is reintroduced to the soil. The Core Recycler can also be employed for collecting cores by turning of the separating function of the sieves with special inserts. The extendable mesh insert ensures easy access to the screen drums, the tool free screen drum exchange, and for simple cleaning.
