Are you looking for an efficient way to install a sports pitch? Do you want to apply several different layers? Or do you want to fill your drainage trenches? Within the GKB Group we regularly encounter similar challenges when we need to install sports pitches. This has been the primary reason for us to develop the Sandmover, originally in 1986. After continuous modifications, we completely redeveloped the machine in 2012 and today’s Sandmover is produced in our brand-new, energy neutral industrial plant.
Accurate construction of a sports pitch
The Sandmover is the machine you need to apply a layer of sand, lava, split or gravel to your pitch. Moreover, this machine is suitable for filling drainage trenches using the optional, hydraulically adjustable conveyor belt. In the sand bunker, there are two subsoilers positioned to consistently transport the sand to the sand distribution roller. The thickness of the layer that must be applied can easily be installed mechanically , ranging between 2 and 10 cm. Depending on the desired operating width, 1.8 metre or 2.5 metre, the sand bunker can contain 5 m3 or 6 m3.
In the basic design, the Sandmover is an uncomplicated, robust machine on which you, as a contractor, can rely on. We have deliberately chosen to develop the foundation of the machine without hydraulic power requirements or electrical systems, consequently increasing the reliability of the machine.
The Sandmover rests on four broad balloon tyres, to minimize the risk of possible damage on the pitch. Optionally, you can choose a design in which the machine will rest on radial balloon tires and we can provide the outer wheels with hydraulic brakes. Additionally, you have the option of selecting a trench filler and conveyer belt.
The Sandmover will enable you to accurately prepare the all-important foundations in the construction of the perfect sports pitch.
