ALS Contracts takes delivery of GroundPro MT200 Flex-Verticutter

3.32pm 22nd August 2019 - New Products

Telford based sports contractor, ALS Contracts has taken delivery of a Maredo MT200 Flex-Verticutter to expand and update its range of scarifiers for fairways, sports pitches and estates.

The tractor-mounted scarifier was launched by GroundPro, a trading division of Wiedenmann UK. It provides a rapid response to difficulties that may occur in the vital area lying just beneath the turf surface.

Dave Harvey, Contracts Manager at ALS said: “Controlling thatch in the top layer is key; too much organic matter can be a problem. This removes thatch cleanly and at speed. With three independent floating heads and an ‘A’ frame with pivot point that makes turning simple, you get straight to business.

“Depending on what the issues are we can have the Flex-Verticutter remove a lot of organic matter or let the blades just touch the top layer for a light grooming. The heads combine to offer a span of 1.9 m, each working to a depth of 25 mm so it’s what a contractor needs as it covers a lot of ground fast.”

GroundPro machines will be featured on the Wiedenmann UK  Stand A080 at SALTEX on 30th and 31st October.
