Flexblade Core Collector for Turf Tractors

The patented Flexblade Core Collector is available with a three point linkage frame for attachment directly to a Tractor or to the tipping ram on all Turf Utility Vehicles to collect the soil in a second operation. These extremely simple but efficient implements are available in two swath widths. (Models FCCTM7C, FCCTM9C)

Groundsman's patented Flexblade principal consists of a series of linked plates or blades that follow the contours of the surface with precision scooping up aeration cores like shovels. This implement works equally well in wet or dry conditions for collecting cores or soil debris left on the surface by linear aeration as illustrated. The soil was soaked by rain overnight

When the implement is raised at the end of the run the soil is automatically dumped into a pile. These can then be scooped into one collective pile.

Swath widths of 140cm (55") and 175cm (69") are available ie: Models FCCTM7C utilizing seven blades and the FCCTM9C nine blades. The three-point linkage frame incorporates two caster wheels which enable the collector to work in an arc without scuffing the turf.

  • Linked plate blades follow the surface contours for clean collection with mimimal smearing even in soaking wet or powder dry conditions.
  • Scoops the soil cleanly from the surface with mimimal hole blockage.
  • No load ground pressure or trampling on the vulnerable aerated surface.
  • Drastically reduces the man power requirements clearing up to 14,000m3 (15,000sq/yds) per hour.
