trilo-su40

Trilo SU 40

The TRILO SU 40 vacuum unit makes light work of collecting leaves, litter, horse droppings and grass-clippings. The material is picked up using the 3.5m wander hose, it passes through the four bladed armoured fan and is shredded before being blown into the trailer. This reduces the volume of material being collected. The fan is V-belt driven so the drive isn’t straight on to the crank, thus reducing possible damage. The driveline is straight forward and easy to maintain. The advanced fan design creates less noise and low resistance and is statically and dynamically balanced to ensure smooth operation and long life.

gkb-sandfiller

GKB Sandfiller

The GKB Sandfiller has been designed to tackle the problem of surface drainage and aeration on golf courses, especially on “greens”. As the topsoil is aerated and filled with sand, the conditions for excellent root growth are created. In order to properly follow the contours of the underlying soil, three adjustable depth rollers are used. There is a slitting rotor situated between the conveyor rollers, and this is used for aeration and verticutting. The two rear conveyor rollers are pivoted in order to distribute the weight efficiently. The material that is removed from the top layer through verticutting is immediately collected in a sideways-tipping container. The flow of sand is controlled hydraulically by means of an adjustable valve on the side of the machine.For golf courses and sports fields where surface water and moss forming are a problem, the new Sandfiller offers the perfect solution. The network that it creates ensures faster drainage and intensive aeration, resulting in a higher level of playing capacity.

GKB CS120 Dimple Seeder

The spiked rollers of the Combiseeder produce roughly 1500 holes per square meter, after which the seed falls on the field behind the first roller. The seed is wiped with a brush, of which you can adjust the pressure. A second spiked roller presses the seeds into the soil and as a finishing touch, your field is brushed again with a mobile brush. This method minimizes soil disturbances.

GKB SB140 Stoneburier

The Stoneburier is a premium rotary tiller, in which the strainer behind the rotary tiller ensures that the stones get separated from the finely crumbled ground. It is possible to equip the rotary tiller with two different types of tilling blades. As a result of this operation the stones will be put under the layer of fine, vital soil. The maximum operating depth is 17 cm. The operating depth is simply adjusted by using two spindles on both sides of the machine.

The rear roller presses the milled material and you can fill this roller with water when you want to press the soil more firmly. Optionally the roller can be hydraulically adjusted so you can seamlessly follow your previous operation.

The GKB Stoneburier is essential for the creation of a perfect seeding bed!

GKB V Strong 160

The VStrong is optimally equipped for removing weeds, thanks to the CombiRotor. This is a powered cutting rotor with vertical cutting discs, to which scarifying blades are attached.

The sturdy 3 mm thick steel rotor blades cut through the thickest roots effortlessly, with a working depth of up to 5 centimeters.

The Vstrong excels in working speed, solidity and reliability. This is how efficient the machine is:

  • Working speed up to 12 km / h. For example, you can cut a field horizontally and vertically in about 1.5 hours.
  • Solid build quality, making the machine last a lifetime.
  • Easy to attach to common tractors, via three-point mounting

GKB SP100/SP300 Sandspreader

On a sports field the Sandspreader is used differently than on a golf course. That is why you can configure the machine extensively. We can tailor-make the machine to meet all your demands.

The sand is dropped on the spreading discs by means of a conveyor belt. By adjusting the speed of the belt you can set how much sand is spread. Because the spreading discs are precisely adjustable, you can create the perfect sand distribution.

With the SPM model you have a Sandspreader with a lifting conveyor. This way you can also use the Sandspreader to fill sand bunkers on a golf course or to fill drainage trenches.

Do you want to go on public roads with a sand spreader? For certain places we can adapt the machine so that it is street legal. The Sandspreader is then equipped with a braking system and a bumper with integrated lighting, so that you can safely hit the road.

The SP100 model of the Sandspreader is also suitable to mount on a turftruck, such as the ProGator, Truckster or Workman, but can also be supplied on a pivoting wheel set. All other models are equipped with a pivoting wheel set with four balloon tires, for the perfect weight distribution on your golf course.

csm_Vredo_Compact_LR___2__4df6adc1f7

Vredo Compact 214 Disc Seeder

The simplicity of het Compact Series enables it to be used in many areas and its working width of 1 m to 2.2 m makes it effective in any situation. Camp sites, horse racing circuits, local authorities, contractors, golf courses, sports facilities and private and country estates all make extensive use of this machine. This all-rounders has an inter-row distance of 7.5 cm and is made for hard ground conditions.
The fields on which these machines are used, often have to remain in use. A camp site, for example, cannot be closed off after preparation of the grass. Using the Vredo means that grassed areas can remain in use and can also be mowed as the grass seed is perfectly confined in the narrow slit.
