The Hover Cover

The Hover Cover


The Hover Cover is an innovative product designed by Stuart Canvas Products that has revolutionised the way that major cricket grounds protect their squares and pitches.

The Hover Cover has many advantages over conventional pitch covers and these include:

Speed - the Hover Cover can be protecting the pitch within 3 minutes of the start of rain whereas normal cricket covers would take up to 10 minutes to cover the pitch completely.

Manpower - being self-propelled, the Hover Cover requires less ground staff to manoeuvre it onto the square than traditional mobile pitch covers.

Transportation - the Hover Cover glides to the centre of the pitch thus meaning there are will be no wheel marks or damage to the turf after a deluge of rain. The hover, which is motorised, can be loaded with side sheets and a bowlersí run-up cover thus avoiding extra man power and time getting the covers to the centre.

Benefits to the groundsmen - the air circulation units can be used to speed up the drying process and is ideal for controlled germination, especially out of season. It can also be moved sideways easily, on and off the pitch, when work is necessary during showery days.

Dimensions - its dimensions are tailor made to the customerís own requirements, but would normally be between 80ft ñ 105ft long and 15 ft wide. It is powered by two 20 HP petrol-driven engines, one at each end. Integral gutters down each long side are designed to carry square covers on inflatable tubes, and extra covers, if necessary, for bowlersí run-ups.
