This system works by pushing hollowed tines into the ground. This then removes cores of soil reducing compaction and thatch caused by years of rolling therefore improving air and water movement creating a healthier soil.
This machine is used alongside the hollow corer. It collects the cores of soil removed and can speed up time greens, grounds are out of play. It also saves on labour costs.
Topdressing is an important aspect of all turf maintenance. We have a range of different topdressing each suitable to specific sports. Topdressing can be matted leaving surface level, true and ready to play.
