Charterhouse OxyShot Aerator
The OxyShot is the ideal tool in the armoury of the Greenkeeper and Groundsman for troublesome areas such as bunkers, walkways, greens and around tree roots, injecting life-giving air into the soil profile and allowing the plant to breath, perfect for spot treatments complementing other forms of aeration.
Relieve compaction, improve drainage, revitalise growth. Ideal soil conditions should be comprised of:
- 45% Mineral 5% Organic Matter
- 25% Water 25% Air
The OxyShot has a single probe which is available in two diameters, the machine is compact and manoeuvrable allowing easy access to normally difficult to reach areas. The OxyShot’s probe blasts air in 4 directions at variable pressures to a depth and duration that the operator requires down to a maximum of 500mm using the 25mm diameter probe, thus lifting, expanding and de- compacting the soil.
The OxyShot is ideal for high traffic areas which are prone to a high volume of footfall causing compaction and poor grass growth. The OxyShot has a smooth, swift, clean penetration which leaves minimal disruption to the surface. Moving across the desired surface can be done quickly and efficiently, with the distance between each injection tailored by the operator.
