Do you want to evenly sand your sports field with precision to bring it back to top condition? Top dressing, also known as sand spreading, is an important point of attention for both the construction and maintenance of your sports field or golf course. As a sanding machine, the Sandspreader is perfectly suited for spreading different materials evenly over your field. Efficient and even sand spreading is done with the Sandspreader from GKB Machines!
Efficient sand spreading with our sanding machine: the GKB Sandspreader
Proper sanding is crucial for the long-term preservation of your sports fields. It ensures (in combination with aeration) that:
- Excess water can evaporate
- Oxygen gets into the soil
- Less organic material can form in the top layer
All these factors together result in a lawn in top condition, without matting problems. A solid and efficient sanding machine is therefore indispensable for you as a greenkeeper or green specialist.
How does the Sandspreader work?
The Sandspreader uses a simple mechanism:
- You fill the bunker with sand
- An internal conveyor belt throws the sand into the spreading discs
- The spreading discs rotate, and sand falls evenly through the mesh onto the field.
