Anybody working in turf maintenance knows that painting a soccer field is not an easy task. It requires hard work, patience, attention to detail, not to mention hours of walking up and down the field while pushing the line marker. But marking a soccer field doesn’t have to be this hard.
The Turf Tank robot is the soccer field painter that makes the job easier for turf managers, all while saving the organization time and money.
Save time and paint
When painting a soccer field manually, the process typically requires two people, about two hours to lay down all the lines for the game. With the Turf Tank, that’s just a one-person job. Instead of pulling strings and pushing the manual machine, the robot operator controls the robot with a smart tablet. In just two minutes and with a few taps, the robot is ready to drive straight to the starting point and begin painting. It will complete a soccer field in just 25 minutes all by itself, saving the crew time to focus on other tasks.
Not only does it save time, but it also reduces the paint consumption by up to 50%. The robot is equipped with a low—pressure pump/nozzle system allowing it to complete an 11v11 field with just one gallon of paint.
Perfect lines – every time
When you need to get multiple fields painted for an upcoming soccer tournament, doing the job manually can be a challenge. The time constraints can lead to mistakes, and the lines end up crooked. A robotic soccer field painter is the perfect mix between perfect precision and quick work, that will take a load off your shoulders and give you the chance to focus on other important tasks. When preparing for the Gorces Classic Tournament in Florida, Ibe Johan, tournament director, saw the real benefit of having the Turf Tank robot as an assistant on the field: “The robot does a marvelous, amazing job, lining the fields. Perfectly straight lines and the players love it!”
With a robotic field painter, you don’t have to worry about the disappearing lines during the season. The robot remembers all locations and sizes from the initial marking, making overmarking 100% accurate and easier than ever. Next time when you need the field, all you have to do is go inside the tablet, select the desired field, press Start and watch the robot paint the lines while you can go ahead and focus on other tasks.
Your field. Your team. Your identity.
Apart from perfectly straight lines, the Turf Tank robot can give your fields a unique look. With the custom logo feature you can paint your team’s name, or logo, in any color, raising both team spirit and fans excitement for the next big game! Or even paint the sponsor’s logos to generate revenue for your organization! Speaking of color, the Turf Tank robot comes in every one imaginable. You can choose to have your own one-of-kind robotic mascot in your organization colors!
