The absolutely continuous infilling of modern artificial turf systems with sand, rubber and other infilling material is a highly demanding task which only can be achieved with an efficient solution such as the new SandMatic B2005 from SMG. The ride-on SandMatic B2005 spreads and infills artificial turf surfaces with sand, rubber and organic infill material. A conveyor belt and its innovative brushing unit effectively support the process. The SandMatic series enables precise infilling of 2.5 to 40 kg/m² in both directions. With a working width of 1,500 mm and driving speeds of 1 m/min up to 25 m/min, the SandMatic B2005 is capable of processing up to 35 m²/min. The control panel can be moved from left to right, thereby optimising visibility and ergonomics. The machine is driven by a 16.1 kW (21.9 hp) 3-cylinder Kubota diesel engine. The weight is evenly distributed among eight large-dimensioned low-pressure tires. The pressure per unit area applied by the machine’s gross weight is thus adapted to the turf’s permissible ground pressure. For more than 40 years, SMG has been offering a unique and the internationally largest range of machines for maintaining and cleaning artificial turf pitches – a total of 14 machines and attachments. As a pioneer in the sector of synthetic sports surfaces and artificial turf, SMG has proven expertise and many years of experience worldwide and develops and sets standards. Customers are provided not only with valuable information on handling, but also with professional guidance in choosing the right product to do the best-possible job.
Since the 1980s, SMG has also been introducing innovations for the maintenance of artificial turf and carpets with granule infilling. Another ground-breaking development is due for launch in this sector in 2018 as well.
