Sports turf managers have enough to worry about. Field condition and its appearance need not be one of them. The Kromer Company’s Field Commander® tractor along with its hydraulically actuated synthetic field grooming attachments will make creating a safe, playable and aesthetically pleasing field a manageable task. Knowing what to do – and when, has been difficult for field maintenance staff to decipher. Kromer has simplified the process and incorporated all grooming functions into a complete and thorough 2-step grooming process. The system addresses problems associated with infill compaction, fiber entanglement and capping, poor water infiltration, dust and dirt contamination and uneven infill distribution. The first step utilizes the newly designed Synthetic Field Conditioning Groomer™, which is able to decompact, break up and clean clumped infill, remove magnetic debris, then redistribute and level the infill. The Conditioning Groomer provides indication and visual feedback to the operator, letting him know when the field is properly prepared and ready for the second step. After completion of the first step grooming, loosened and redistributed infill largely lay atop the surface of the grass blade fibers and leaves the field with a dark or black appearance. The second step utilizes the unique Synthetic Field Finish Groomer™ in conjunction with the fluid pressurization system on the Field Commander® tractor to properly reinsert the infill within the straightened grass blade fibers and functions to stand the grass blades back upright. Infill reinsertion is essential for proper support of the grass blades, helping prevent pile lean and flattening, and delivering a long life from your expensive synthetic turf installation. The high-pressure anti-static solution with dual row solution jets quickly and effectively assist this patent-pending process. In addition to the playability, durability and safety traits, the field is now left in an aesthetically prime, game-ready condition.
