The S500 PLUS is an easy to use 'dual -purpose' machine and is ideal for bowls, cricket and golf as well as being equally at home on other fine turf surfaces. The machine has a 510mm (20") operating width and has interchangeable spiker and slotter reels. The spiker reel punches through the "surface pan" allowing air, water and fertiliser to penetrate the root zone, whilst the slotter reel creates ideal seed germination pockets. An optional seed box is available.
