The Ball Picker is the only robotic range ball collector in the world and a revolutionary advancement in golf ball collection. This coupled with the BigMow Robotic Lawn Mower, forms a duo which automates outfield maintenance tasks.
This partnership is the most reliable and economic assistant for driving range managers. The Ball Picker works in conjunction with the AMS Ball Wash & Return System and forms a complete continual automated ball management process, which allows for the balls to be collected, washed and then be transferred to the ball dispenser.
The robotic ball collector collects golf balls on driving ranges. Its advanced technology uses an inbuilt computer to activate 5 groups of 4 discs. This makes it possible to silently, systematically and automatically collect the range balls. Once the ball tank is full, the Ball Picker returns to its base to unload the balls for washing and to recharge its batteries.
Unrivaled Performance – The Ball Picker can detect the areas with high ball density and will work continuously to collect them. For particularly large outfields, several Ball Pickers can operate simultaneously to collect the golf balls.
No golf balls are pressed into the ground during retrieval by the Ball Picker. Therefore the club saves on replacing several thousands of balls every year, which normally remained buried in the ground.
Works Silently – While conventional machines can be very noisy, Belrobotics robots produce the same amount of the noise as a washing machine. Inaudible from a few metres away, this silence enables work to take place 24/7, without disturbing golfers or neighbours.
The Ball Picker operates with batteries and automatically returns to its charging station to recharge. It will also return once its tank is full of balls, to discharge the balls into the wash system. In just a few seconds, the balls are emptied into the retrieval ditch.
Ball Picker is certainly a unique ball retrieval system that works well under pressure and does quite a good harvest a day. Ball Picker operates 24/7 and never stops to complain. This silent and green robot can work while customers are around without being too intrusive. Once the tank is full it returns to base and drops balls into the ball wash & return system, which washes and returns the balls to the dispenser. This process is part of the Range Ball Plan service solution.
