Campey Relishing Return to Industry Shows

Macclesfield, Cheshire, England: Following an enforced one-year absence from industry shows, Campey Turf Care Systems is gearing up to showcase its leading line of turf care machinery at the BIGGA Festival of Turf and SAGE Sports & Grounds Expo.

The exhibitions will be the first turf industry gatherings since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Festival of Turf takes place at the Warwickshire Event Centre on the July 21-22 with the SAGE Expo to be staged five days later at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern.

Campey is known for supplying market-leading, innovative turf care machinery which will be demonstrated in its product line-up for the shows, including Vredo, Air2G2, Imants, Dakota, Campey and AllTrec.

“By the time these two events open at the end of July, it will have been 18 months since the pandemic began, so it will be a great opportunity to meet customers and other suppliers again in a Covid-safe environment,” said Lee Morgado, Director at Campey Turf Care, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

Morgado and his colleagues have worked throughout the pandemic. He views the return of in-person events as another step towards normality for the industry.

He said: “Throughout the pandemic, we’ve still been able to supply customers with machines and witness some of the excellent work greenkeeping teams have been doing.

“The popularity of the Vredo over-seeders has continued to grow, along with the Dakota top-dressers, and we’ve had some innovative use of the Koro FIELDTOPMAKER with the Universe rotor at some clubs. All of those machines and more, including the Air2G2, will be on our stands.”

The popularity of the Campey range in golf comes down to three factors – precision, build quality and consistency.

Every machine supplied by Campey is the leader in its field, such as the Vredo double-disc over-seeders.

Vredo’s place seed in a V-shaped slit, at a pre-set depth of between 5 mm and 25 mm. Once the seed is placed in direct contact with the soil, the slits are closed by a compaction roller and a level surface re-established. All Vredo Compact over-seeders provide users with 90% to 95% germination by completing this process.

Dakota Turf Tenders offer an equally impressive level of consistency with electric control boxes allowing users to set their width of spread an infinitely variable amount while ensuring that it can be changed and returned to that width at any time.

The easy-to-use spreaders also feature four Ultra-Trac turf tyres on independent floating beam axels for maximum weight distribution, making them perfect for use on golf greens.

Meanwhile, the AllTrec Tool Carrier follows the Koro FTM with Universe Rotor and Air2G2 among Campey’s most innovative products.

The 100% electric machine provides zero CO2 emissions and can also be used with a number of other attachments, including the Air E-Variator, weed brush, and hedge cutter.

The electrically driven hedge cutter can be fully operated using a joystick, while the E-Variator Weed Burner can be used alongside the weed brush to control weeds in a variety of locations. The weed brush can be hydraulically adjusted to any angle and used for a full day without worrying about batteries running out.
