The Wiedenmann CORE RECYCLER

Fulwell Golf Club is a thriving, progressive club just 12 miles from the center of London and near to English Rugby Union's Twickenham stadium. A parkland course built with traditional push up greens, it boasts tree lined fairways and is of championship length. Immaculately maintained, it provides an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standards.

The club purchased its first Wiedenmann machine in summer 2010 - a Terra Spike XP - and subsequently has gone on to purchase a further four Wiedenmann machines in as many years. Fulwell was one of the first venues to take delivery of the Core Recycler (June 2013).

Fulwell traditional has two maintenance weeks - May ad August - where the principal task is to hollow core fine turf areas using 12mm tines to a depth of 50 mm at spacings of 40 mm.

Prior to buying the Core Recycler, their best result was 1 1/4 hectares of greens and 3/4 hectares of tees/aprons carried out by a team of seven working flat out. In a perfect week they would aim to complete 18 to 19 greens and possibly two to three tees or aprons. Two hectares of output would be the best they could hope to achieve

In the first maintenance week using the Core Recycler with, on average, a team of 3 1/2 staff, output increased dramatically. They completed 20 greens, all 18 teeing areas, some of which have four or five separate tees (3/4 hectares of tees), 1.2 hectares of aprons, and a hectare of run offs. It took just that initial week for the Fulwell squad to become comfortable and competent operators.

Features may include:
  • Height adjustable rollers make the job of either lifting or recycling cores smoother
  • Finally, a dressing of sand was applied and brushed into the surface to complete the process and fill in any remaining holes
  • A typical before and after representation of the work of the Core Recycler. On the left is a full size hollow core collected from the surface. On the right, it has been lifted by the Core Recycler, processed through its sieves. Now only the fibrous content of the core remains and, at a glance, it can be seen just how much of the core is returned to the surface.
  • This is a mid stage photo of the Fulwell operation. Here no further dressing has been applied other than what has been recycled and brushed in, easily over 50% of the tine holes have been filled.
  • Specified for either low or high dump collection, the Core Recycler makes for fast straightforward emptying.
  • This shows a typical ameliorated mix. The surface has been dressed first, then cored, then the sand and cores are lifted together as one. Once they are sieved through the recycler, this resultant quality mix is returned to the surface.
  • Harvesting cores from a green.
  • Close up of a single pass with the recycler - fitted with solid tubes in the sieves thurs performing as a collector rather than a recycler.
  • Showing some of the green still to be recycled. A clear picture of the recycled passes.
  • These photos show the recycled material being returned to a golf tee.
  • A handful of recycled cores after passing through the sieves showing the separated thatch content.
