An entire stadium in just one day
To this day, unsurpassed in speed, accuracy and ground protection: Our Jumbo installation machine
Using the Jumbo turf-laying machine you can lay an entire football stadium in a single day. Nonetheless it exerts very little pressure n the ground. For more than ten years we have been using this unique technique and have laid the turf in hundreds of stadiums throughout Europe. The advantage is obvious: faster, more perfectly laid turf with fewer joins.
The fully-hydraulic drive of the self-propelled laying machine has infinitely variable steering and the installation can take place by remote control. One man steers the machine and another checks the unrolling of the turf and ensures a gap-free laying without folds or tears. The laying takes place backwards, whereby the freshly laid grass no longer has to be run over. Transport nets or films are separated from the turf and wound up during the installation. The machine itself runs on four rubberised chains and has a contact surface area of 2.53 m². As a result, the Schwab Jumbo installation machine has a lower soil pressure, even in the loaded state, than the human foot and leaves no traces on sensitive turf layers. With the ample power from a 60 HP Kubota or Perkins diesel engine, fast yet safe work is possible. Since the engine always runs in the middle speed range, noise development, environmental stress and wear are low.
