Wiedenmann GXi8 HD, fast, smooth and precise
The all-rounder has an ‘access all areas’ badge and loosens and aerates turf down to 25 cm deep. Its 1.8m width covers the back tyres of today’s large compact tractors and is compatible with those from 40 to 70 hp.
An enviable anti-vibration system comprises two unique damping systems, VibraStop and PowerPack, so operator and tractor are always protected from jolts and vibration. The GXi8 HD ‘s fast speed is derived from its twin drive while its eight legs of tines are timed to hit the ground in pairs, which further enhances its smoothness and makes it kinder to turf. Advance Tine Control (ATC) allows precise tine entry into the ground, all tines exactly spaced, making a neat and clean job with surface disruption negligible.
Many owners, confident of the GXi8 HD’s assured performance, take the ‘coffee cup challenge’, where they balance a filled cup and travel across a pitch or green without spilling a drop, and post the results on social media. Mark Bolton, head groundsman at Brinscall Vilage Juniors FC said; “Once you’ve seen a GXi8 move and used one, nothing else comes close. Ours is the one piece of kit we couldn’t swap.”
