SMG launches 2 innovations at FSB

SMG has used the FSB show in Cologne to present two new high-performance innovations: The TurfRouter TR500 autonomous mobile robot with 12-volt batteries and the WashMatic WM800 for high-pressure cleaning of synthetic turf surfaces.

The 12-volt batteries of the TurfRouter TR500 has a workload of three to four hours. According to SMG it will only take three hours to maintain and clean a large playing field (soccer, rugby, baseball, etc.). It takes six hours to charge the batteries.

The maximum driving speed is five km / h. For location and navigation, the machine uses the SMG positioning software with information from the GPS / GNSS system and the gyroscope. Safety is guaranteed by ultrasonic sensors and a collision protection on the front. Full control over the TurfRouter is ensured by hand or radio remote control. SIM card, Bluetooth or WLAN take over the communication for the exchange of all device / work data. With an app, the data can be read out with standard end devices and the route can be monitored.

The 3-point suspension at the rear is used for pulling and lifting attachments, e.g. the “bestseller” TurfCare, the drag brush or a magnetic bar. All attachments of the TurfRouter can also be pulled by other vehicles such as small tractors or quads, so that several maintenance tasks can be carried out at the same time.

WM800 – high pressure cleaning for synthetic surfaces
With the WashMatic WM800, SMG is now making high-pressure water cleaning available for synthetic sports surfaces as well. Typical fields of application are e.g. unfilled artificial turf, running tracks, multi-purpose playing fields or similar surfaces. The front attachment of the WM800 is powered by a water-cooled 44 HP diesel engine. The spray pressure of the rotating spray lance is adjustable up to 170 bar. The water requirement per minute is 50 liters and is usually covered by the water supply to the sports facility. The required amount of water is also guaranteed with the 300 liter water tank with integrated overflow valve. An external water pump conveys the fresh water from the intermediate tank to the machine. Dirty water is discharged through the drain hose. The working width of the WM800 is 800 mm; 550 m² can be cleaned per hour. The water tank, additional pump and hoses can be stored on a compact transport trolley. This can be conveniently lowered via the ramp using an electric winch and positioned as required.
