The world of groundcare requires accuracy as well as strength, and this should be reflected when selecting equipment for use in the sector.
One of the major pieces of groundcare machinery available is that of the ride-on mower. These are the key units that keep the grass under control and result in a tidy and well-kept look on the turf. There is an obvious connection between the size of the mower and the area of turf to be cut. Other factors to consider include the size and positioning of the cutting blades and the presence of rollers. Some mowers are also equipped with four-wheel drive to tackle rougher terrain.
Spiking is another common groundcare task, and the market offers a range of spiked rollers. These can be linked to a standard three-point linkage and operated from the tractor. The rollers vary both in their width and weight and also in the length of the spikes and hence the depth of the spiking treatment. Rakes and aerators are also available to perform additional groundcare tasks.
Golf courses and park areas can be large, and simply getting around can be a major undertaking. Using a suitable vehicle saves a lot of time, but that vehicle must be suited to the environment. Many operators in groundcare use an ATV to transport both staff and equipment. These vehicles are extremely agile and often have four-wheel drive to allow them to access difficult terrain. They will typically have one or two rows of seating and a load area to the rear. They can also be fitted with special low-impact tyres in order to prevent any damage to the turf and can also be adapted with extra seats to provide transport for clients.
The turf also needs to be kept free from debris or litter, and sweepers and brushes are on hand to remove any unwanted material from the sward. These may be hydraulically operated and connected to a tractor or other vehicle by means of a three-point linkage. The area of groundcare also involves treating the turf, and there are a number of implements to help achieve this task. These include spreaders and sprayers for the application of feed, fertiliser and weed-control preparations.
When buying used groundcare equipment, it is sensible to conduct a full inspection and a test to ensure the proper working of the machine. All implements should be checked for compatibility with existing machinery and the overall condition established. Groundcare equipment needs to carry out its work with accuracy, so all mechanisms should be in good working order.
