Ecotronics Launches CoreMax48, Golf Course Aerification Solution that Ensures Cores Never Touch Turf
Technology designed by a golf course superintendent for golf course superintendents reduces downtime, requires less labor, and rebuilds greens through aerification with clean, unbridged holes
SOUDERTON, PA – June 6, 2019 – Ecotronics, the equipment technology division of SynaTek Solutions, has launched CoreMax48, which uses the latest in greens maintenance technology to deliver a more productive and efficient solution for golf course aerification.
CoreMax48, which comes pre-fitted to directly attach onto the Toro ProCore648,:
- Collects aeration cores before they touch the playing surface;
- Leaves behind clean holes and allows for up to 30 percent more topdressing sand to be delivered to open core sites;
- Eliminates interruption in work schedules due to its ability to be utilized in saturated conditions;
- Minimizes surface disruption to help put greens back in play faster than ever before; and
- Provides an option for off-season aerification, as well as in-season maintenance.
“Aerification often creates angst on the golf course but, with CoreMax48, cores never touch the turf,” said Leah Gendron, Brand Director at Ecotronics. “There is no more pushing and shoveling cores from the aerified area.”
CoreMax48 was designed by a golf course superintendent for golf course superintendents and is able to meet any agronomic impact and productivity curve desired by turf professionals.
“In wet weather, during times that we were forced to follow a schedule, I felt as if we were doing a good job only 60 percent of the time,” said John Shaw, creator of CoreMax48, a Certified Golf Course Superintendent and Mechanical Engineer. “I knew there had to be a way to eliminate time and surface disruption during aeration, so I found a solution to a problem that would help me and other superintendents; seeing them get excited about this technology is really cool.”
Superintendents around the country are having success with CoreMax48, according to Gendron, which is benefitting club members and the golfing public by minimizing inconveniences caused by aerification.
“My crew loves the fact that there is far less back breaking work during our core aerations, and the turf on the greens has responded great due to less abrasion,” said Ken Flisek, Certified Golf Course Superintendent at The Club at Nevillewood. “Our members are thrilled that the putting surfaces recover more quickly than ever,” Flisek concluded.
