The Briggs Racecourse Irrigator has been developed specifically for the demands of the modern racing World and has been introduced on many courses in the UK and around the world.
Accurate and uniform application across the width and length of the track are essential to provide even going and keep the turf in top condition. With the Briggs Racecourse Irrigation package this is possible in all but the worst weather conditions.
A drive system has been developed to apply very high flow rates at high speed so that the track can be watered as quickly as possible.
The independent drive system also means that the machine can be used on most racecourses without any modification to pumps or underground mains.
Hosereels and booms are all simple to set up and transport, making moving to and from the course quick and easy. The boom is lifted hydraulically onto the hosereel at the end of irrigation with no lifting or carrying involved. The unit can then be towed with a small tractor.
Both the hosereels and booms are supplied with low ground pressure wheels to avoid damage to the course.
Even jumps can be cleared with ease using a hydraulic lift system designed for the purpose. This makes irrigation of landings and take off points simple and accurate.
Bends can be negotiated using bend pegs (shown left) designed specifically for continuous irrigation around the course.
Where electrical power is not economically available we can supply a full range of diesel engine powered pump units. We have tailor made pump controls which allow the pump to keep running whilst the operator is moving the irrigator. The engine can be remotely started or stopped by a mobile phone if this option is purchased.
