VCollector – Scarify sports pitches with ease
Do you want to effectively remove organic matter, combat the black layer or remove weeds without the use of pesticides, all whilst preventing the emergence of stubborn annual meadow grass? Sustainable management of your sports surface begins with using the right machine for the job. The VCollector is suitable for the scarification of golf courses, cricket fields and winter sports pitches. This machine has been specially developed to follow contours, delivering effective scarification while leaving the processed surface clean and ready for play.
How does the VCollector scarifier work?
The VCollector is optimally equipped for removing organic matter and weeds thanks to GKB’s unique CombiRotor. This powerful rotor rotates against the direction of travel for effective scarification and a precise cutting motion. The cutting rotor is especially effective against weeds, using heavy-duty 3mm steel blades to effortlessly cut through even the thickest roots at a working depth of up to 5cm. The blades on the VCollector are also mounted with wind vanes, creating an airflow to suck the removed material into the collection container, leaving a clean finish.
If you don’t need a collector, you may want to consider the GKB VStrong Scarifier instead: The same performance but the scarified material is left on the ground.
WHY WE LOVE IT
“The GKB V-collector is an incredibly powerful tractor-mounted scarifier offering the operator an exceptional working depth of up to 40mm, as well as a very high working speed of up to 12 km/h. The easy depth adjustment makes using the machine simple and easy whilst at the same time avoiding a lot of downtime that you might encounter when setting up other tractor-mounted scarifiers.
Apart from the power and speed of the machine I really like the simple and efficient way of changing the Carbide blades over. This allows for an easy blade change or an increased number of blades on the rotor to reduce the blade spacings which are in 25mm increments (25mm, 50mm, 75mm or 100mm spacings). The Carbide blades are available in 2mm, 3mm & 4mm widths which means the machine can be easily adapted to suit a number of working environments.
As with all GKB products you get an unrivaled build quality, with a history of contract works in and around the city of Rotterdam, they know first hand what it takes to build a machine that lasts.”
“There is no comparison with any other scarifier system I have used: the GKB V-Collector is an absolutely brilliant piece of kit! The build quality is far superior and the operation is so simple, easy to adjust and set up, user-friendly and so smooth in work. The collector works well too. What a fantastic machine!”
