The old model 720 Synthetic Sports Turf Groomer received a major overhaul and new design in 2014. The 920 SDE Electric Lift Synthetic Sports Turf Groomer was improved with a larger brush area, making any grooming job that much faster. In addition to the new 920 SDE Groomer, GreensGroomer created the best groomer ever. Customers have been asking for years about an all in one application and in 2015 Greensgroomer introduced the 926 Integrated Synthetic Sports Turf Groomer. This groomer with built-in tine rakes is all about making your turf perform to its peak capability. Now that the spring tine rake is built into the frame, there is no longer a need to manually remove or attach the spring tine rake. This new design will save time and save money because the time spent monkeying around with the equipment has just been drastically reduced.
You better believe that with any equipment GreensGroomer Worldwide releases, there is a Patent Pending right behind it and the 926 Integrated Sports Turf Groomer is no different. For over 18 years GreensGroomer has been designing and building high-quality maintenance equipment. You don’t see GreensGroomer selling turf because the equipment is the focus. If you see a turf company selling equipment, I would think twice because chances are the equipment is going to be junk.
926 Integrated Synthetic Sports Turf Groomer Rake Features
The integrated Spring Tine is controlled through a simple, sliding lever. This allows the operator to quickly and easily rotate tines upwards and out of the way while not needed. When raking is required, a simple motion rotates the tines into the raking mode in one easy step. The spring tines are completely adjustable, so the depth of raking can be controlled by the facility. Simple markings on the lever rail allow the operator to precisely dial in tine depth.
Integration With the Spring Tine Rake
We like to use a golf analogy when describing how important the Spring Tine Rake is to the overall performance of your turf. Here we go, your out golfing and you hit your golf ball into a sand trap. As you physically enter the sand trap you immediately know if the sand has been raked recently. If it has not been raked then it is compacted and has the characteristics of concrete, not good. The Spring Tine Rake keeps the infill material loose, which helps prevent injuries and helps with drainage. By simply grooming, you miss the important function of the rake to relieve compaction.
The 926 Integrated Synthetic Sports Turf Groomer represents the third generation of product development and promises increased efficiency and ease of operation. With a heavy-duty steel construction, the Integrated Synthetic Sports Turf Groomer has 16 Super Duty Blue brushes set at various angles to the direction the unit is being towed. The Integrated Spring Tine Rake has 3 rows of 14 tines that are fully adjustable and allow for surface de-compaction without damage to the turf. Once raked, the Groomer brushes stand the turf surface up, move the infill, and level low spots/depressions left after play.
