Wherever excessive organic material is a problem and aesthetics are of primary consideration, the fds series Dethatchers will save you time and money. The fds 9200, 6000 and 4600 Dethatchers are the perfect tools to maximize your investment in natural and artificial turf maintenance.

What special features do the fds series Dethatchers have to help field managers with their natural turf dethatching and decompacting of synthetic fields?

  • 16 inch tines reach down into your turf loosening and removing thatch to allow moisture to reach grass roots and encourage new growth in picnic / open space areas;
