The popular Koro Field TopMaker turf renovation machine, now has a Verticutter Collector, which attaches to the 1.2m wide FTM120 model!!
At the heart of the machine is a verti-cutting rotor, available with spacings of 20mm, 34mm or 40mm between the cutting blades, which are offered in 1.5mm and 3mm widths. The heavy-duty steel hopper collects thatch and other removed material, negating the need for a tractor or trailer running alongside.
When required, the Verticutter assembly lifts and tips hydraulically, so that its contents can be discharged easily into trailers or utility vehicles like Pro Gator, Workman and Truckster units.
Extra cleaning brushes are also fitted to the front of the Verticutter Collector, to ensure the efficient collection of debris in wet conditions.
The compact machine is ideal for work in tight corners where manoeuvring is difficult, on fine turf areas such as golf greens and tees, and on bowling greens.
The Verticutter Collector can be retrofitted to the 1.2m Koro Field TopMaker machines already in use. Like other Koro machines, these promote mechanical, rather than chemical methods for healthy turf.
