Fast Compaction Relief

The AERATOR from STEC Equipment is designed to quickly relieve infill compaction with the use of spiked rollers that create a sculling action. This decompaction promotes proper drainage and also restores field functions such as ball rebound. The machine comes in 40 and 80-inch models and can be operated by a 15 hp tractor.

Add More Stations

The ESP-LX Modular Controller from Rain Bird is now expandable to 48 stations with the addition of a new 12-station module. The new module snaps into place in one of the four module slots inside the ESP-LX’s cabinet. It can be mixed and matched with four and eight-station modules, and it provides 12 stations and one common terminal. Once the module is installed, it reflashes the ESP-LX’s firmware, providing 12-station compatibility along with other new features, including Dynamic Station Numbering and a module status screen under the controller’s “Special Feature” dial position.
