Compaction is a problem for groundsman and greenkeepers worldwide. Aeration of compacted sports fields and golf courses is a common practice in all renovations and maintenance programs. The GKB Deep Tine Aerator can penetrate through the compacted turf with various tine sizes on different depths. Surface water can pass through the profile and it allows air into the root structure which leads towards a healthier grass plant and improved surface.

The DTA210 and DTA260 are provided with a hydraulic depth adjustment so that you can easily set the desired depth. The tines on those two versions have a working depth of maximum 40 centimeter.
