Slitting, Spiking, Aerating


The TERRA SLIT was specially developed for slitting, spiking, and aerating athletic fields and golf courses.  


Regular deep spiking and deep aeration break up soil compaction and provide optimal conditions for healthy root growth.  By breaking up compaction, the roots will deeper penetrate the soil and better absorb water and nutrients, improving the flow of water and the air balance of the soil.  The TERRA SLIT with high lift knives loosens the soil to a depth of 20 cm.  Depending on the degree of compaction and soil conditions, you may choose between low lift knives and high lift knives.  The distance between tine rows is 75 or 150 mm, depending on the assembly.  


For deep slitting, especially on golf greens, the TERRA SLIT may be equipped with fine cutting knives, reaching a working depth of 150 mm.  The TERRA SLIT can do even more.  Equipped with hollow tines 25 mm in diameter, the TERRA SLIT makes 80 holes per sq m in one run with 150 mm spacing between tine rows.  It is perfect for cutting out thatch and also for spiking and aerating the upper soil layer (up to a depth of approximately 80 mm.  For highly compacted soil, the standard supplied ballast frame may be weighted down with additional weights.  On request, a hydraulic weight transfer system is available.
