It is one of the most vital pieces of maintenance equipment used by professionals to ensure the turf remains healthy to promote growth.


Another important field maintenance equipment used by turf professionals is a Verti-cutter machine. This machine is the professional version of your standard home lawnmower.

This machine also utilizes a belt drive for faster blades speeds, which offers improvements in the quality of cut.
