BallPicker – Automatic collection of practice balls
The BallPicker is the only robotic golf ball collector in the world, developed and patented by Belrobotics. Coupled with the BigMow, it forms a duo which automates practice range maintenance tasks. This partnership is the most reliable and economic assistant for the Club´s managers. Our installation partners can complete the automated and continual ball collection process by enabling the balls to be washed and then automatically transfer them to the ball distributor.
The BallPicker tirelessly sweeps the practice ground collecting the balls. It detects the areas of highest ball density with a collection capacity of 12,500 balls per day. Several BallPicker’s can operate simultaneously on large practice grounds.
While conventional machines can be very noisy, Belrobotics robots produce the same amount of 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 BallPicker does not press balls into the ground so they can be used again and again. As a result the Club saves on replacing several thousands of balls every year, which normally remain buried in the ground.
How It Works
The BALLPICKER operates with batteries and automatically returns to its charging station to recharge.
Once its tank is full of balls, the BallPicker returns to its discharge station. In just a few seconds, the balls are emptied into the retrieval ditch
The elevator device transfers the balls to the treatment system.
After traveling through the treatment system the ball is returned to the dispenser
Flexible and Time Efficient
The automated robots are electrically operated, and consume the same amount of energy as a refrigerator. These two robots emit ten times less CO2 into the atmosphere than equivalent combustion engine machines. They also do not emit any exhaust gases or odours that could harm golfers or neighbours.
The exclusive constant mulching process of the BigMow can significantly reduce the consumption of chemical fertilizers, as it naturally fertilizes the soil 100% ecologically.
