Model: TCHYD

The Groundsman model TCHYD is a hydrostatic drive Turf Multi Cutter. It has variable speed forward and reverse drive and a rapid transport speed.  This model was developed initially to insert irrigation pipe to a depth of up to 15cm in a one pass operation using the Groundsman patented Wedge Blade system and pipe or cable reel attachment.

This high traction work horse is fitted with a 9HP engine and has a Hydrostatic Ground Drive giving variable speed forward reverse and rapid transport. The Cutter Blade is engaged independently by a disc clutch. This machine lends itself to a host of operations and blade configurations to perform many operations including Trenching as well as the regular Turf Cutting functions.

The Trenching function requires a very high traction to weight ratio. This has been achieved by incorporating a hydrostatic drive which allows the operator much more control to feed the power to all four wheels without slip or spin. Wheel weights can be attached to the front axle to increase grip without adversely affecting the operator's ability to manoeuvre the machine. A differential has been incorporated for easy turning.

In addition to accepting the full range of Groundsman Turf Cutter Blades, a Wedge Blade Trenching System has been developed specifically for this machine. This system can insert Pipe or Cable from an attached Reel or Materials from a Hopper to a depth of 120mm (5") with minimum surface disruption. A spring loaded vibrating roller is available to close the trench and level the surface.
