Sandfiller – Combining scarifying, removal & sand-filling
Do you want an excellent green faster? Every professional is aware that scarifying and sand-filling is a perfect combination. Use the Sandfiller to attenuate your green and maintain drainage. With the Sandfiller you can scarify, sand and, if necessary, reseed in the same pass. With the Sandfiller you can do this on your own, while other methods require up to 6 people.
How does the Sandfiller work?
- First, a rotor with scarifying blades mills slots in your turf.
- The milled material is blown into the collection container by the wind vanes.
- The machine fills the slots accurately with sand, by means of a broad hydraulically powered sand conveyer belt and the stainless-steel sand fill unit.
- Finally, two oscillating rollers press down on the turf.
After the operation, the fairway will instantly be available for use again

Scarify, sand and reseed in 1 pass
You can use the Sandfiller in different ways, depending on the operation you want to carry out.
To scarify and collect the milled material, use the Sandfiller without using the sand bunker. In the case that you want to ‘attenuate’ as well, you can fill the sand bunker with dried sand. The scarified slots are then filled with the sand from the bunker.
To speed up the recovery of the turf it is good to overseed the green. In that case mix the dried sand with grass seed. In this way, you can scarify, sand and reseed the green in one pass with the Sandfiller.
What characterizes the sandfiller?
As the foundation of the Sandfiller we are making use of the clarified principle of the much-praised Combinator. The slitting rotor is provided with an attachment to the carbide blades that create wind to move the material to the sideways tipping container. After you have emptied the sideways-tipping container, you can simply refill the container with dried sand.
