The 345 range use GROUNDSMAN'S elliptical plunge action mechanism for a clean surface finish very little distruption and consistent depth.The 345HD has frabricated box section tining arms in the aeration mechanism and bias-rod implement heads making it extremely durable.  The operating width is 45cm (18 inches) with an aeration depth adjustable to 13cm (5")  The forward speed is 45 m / min (49 yds) giving up to 1200 sq yds / hour coverage.

The shock absorbing aeration mechanism is driven with a large diameter crank and sealed for life bearings giving many years of trouble-free service with the minimum of maintenance. The front ground drive wheel are fixed in gear and the rear wheels are free for turning and maneouvring the machine, raising and lowering in and out of work is tread bar assisted. The operator handles are mounted to the chassis using three point shock absorbing mountings for low operator handle vibration levels (HAV). Set-up and operator controls are simple making it suitable for private or contract / hire capable of working on fine sports turf or rougher surfaces such as estates and gardens with little surface disruption and consistent depth adjustable to 5". The overall width of the machine is 80cm (32") so it can access pedestrian gateways/ doorways etc.

The 345HD can punch holes from 35mm to 75mm apart at 1200 square meters per hour (see technical specifications.) Quick-change Twin, Triple, Quadra, Quint and Cluster Tine Holders can be fitted using Hollow, Solid, Slitting or Star Tines from Micro to Jumbo. The 345HD accepts the full range of SC (spigot clamp) style tine holders for Solid, Needle, Hollow, Chisel, Star and Cluster Tines (see TINES & HOLDERS)   A Windrow attachment is available when Hollow Tining to row the cores for collection.
