golf machinery

  • Equipment Basics: Aerators feature rotating spoons or tines that rotate, poking holes in the ground. Our heavy-duty aerators are primarily hauled by lawn tractors. We often say that our aerators are among the best on the market!
  • How it Helps Golf Courses: Aerators are used by landscapers to poke small holes in the ground, which allows water, air, and nutrients to better enter the soil. By giving grass more of these 3 key things, you make it all-around healthier and more beautiful. Since golf course grass needs to be both resilient and lush, this piece of golf machinery is crucial.
  • What Sets Ours Apart: The tines on our aerators are longer than the industry standard, which means better aerated and healthier grass. In addition, we offer units that have the ability to switch between different tines on the fly!

  • Equipment Basics: An adjustable rack of blades, verticutters are hauled along the grass after mowing to clear away the top layer of the thatch. Once again, they are primarily hauled by tractors.
  • How it Helps Golf Courses: Verticutters are the most effective way to dethatch grass, which entails cutting away the top layer of thatch and roots. Since golf courses are mowed frequently, the thatch accumulation can be thick. If left alone, the thatch layer can choke the grass of necessary nutrients and water.
  • What Sets Ours Apart: When it comes to all of our golf maintenance equipment and our verticutters, customers appreciate the welded frames which can outlast the competition.
  • Price Range: $6,400 to $8,900

This is accomplished by combining multiple individual rollers, which makes rolling large fairways much more convenient! Many groundskeepers get frustrated with their old small rollers and choose to upgrade to the convenience of ours!

Top Dressers

  • Equipment Basics: A large piece of golf machinery, top dressers feature a deep bay that is filled with a loose material and a heavy-duty spreader below to distribute it.
  • How it Helps Golf Courses: Done after aerating the grounds, a top dresser can fill all of the tine holes with sand. This is another key step to creating strong, ultra-healthy-looking grass. Filling these holes without a dedicated top dresser is an extremely labor-intensive task.
