A specially designed tractor mounted unit with a choice of five quick release interchangeable reels to aid the removal and control of thatch and help to reduce standing surface water by improving water infiltration.

Features include a contra rotating reel for a clean consistent performance with a selection of various blades to suit key tasks.

The weight of the collection box and material is carried by the main frame on the front roller and independent from the reel, so when in use the additional weight does not force the reel to scarify deeper than has been set.

  • Floating unit to follow ground contours
  • Fast ground coverage
  • Interchangeable blades and optional variable spacing allows key tasks such as scarifying, linear aeration, verticutting, and brushing to be carried out
  • Quick release reel system
  • No tool depth setting for fast, simple adjustment
  • Contra rotating reels ensure a clean consistent groove
  • Standard Cat. 1, 3 point linkage
  • When used without collection box, scarifying unit can be offset so that wheels do not run over the removed thatch
  • Optional hydraulic tipping kit
  • Large capacity collection box, shown with optional hydraulic tip kit
  • Contra rotating reel ensuring excellent performance
  • Easy to use manual tip system

  • We use the TM1000 for cricket renovations and regular maintenance work on the squares.It is great for verticutting. I would say it is a must have for any groundsman to have in their armoury.

  • Overall it is just a fantastic piece of kit. There has been a big improvement in the greens and our soil samples have proved that the thatch levels have dropped dramatically since using the TM1000.
