We used to have a push along sarel roller but like most clubs there were no volunteers to use it and it spent most of its time in the hedge bottom. The S500 gives us mechanised surface aeration. We can use it as the weather dictates and it keeps the green surface open. Drainage has improved, the plants are healthier and we have noticed a marked reduction in thatch.
Surface spiking is essential to break the pan of any fine turf. Healthy grass plants need air to their roots to thrive, keeping the surface open. Regular spiking with the S500 - weekly ensures open greens.
