GKB Sandspreader Keeping your sports pitch or golf course in prime condition

Alicia Thompsonin Machinery & Mechanics

GKB Machines, the company behind sustainable, reliable and robust maintenance machinery for natural, synthetic and hybrid turf are offering the ability to keep your sports pitch or golf course in prime condition throughout the year, thanks to the GKB Sandspreader.

During both construction and maintenance, there are multiple reasons for sand filling and top dressing. In either case, the GKB Sandspreader enables the distribution of a wide variety of materials in the appropriate quantities with hassle-free application.

Ranging from 1m3 to 4m3, there are several hopper capacity options in four different designs. The shape and design of the sand hoppers ensures efficient operation and ensures your clear view along the machine. Giving you complete control from the tractor, an optional touchscreen allows you to manoeuvre the machine from within. Not only this but the GKB Sandspreader can also be delivered with four pivoting balloon tires for the perfect distribution of the weight on your grounds.

Adapting to fit a multitude of vehicles, the SP100 especially has been developed on the back of the success of GKB's trailed versions and is suitable for assembling on a turf truck. For example; the John Deere® Gator™, Toro® Workman® or the Jacobsen® Truckster. With complicated construction removed, mounting the GKB Sandspreader is straightforward. A simple bolt-on system and stand legs allows the SP100 to be quickly removed. Also fitted with hydraulic controls means this efficient machine can run directly off the hydraulics of the chosen turf truck.

With development constantly happening within the heart of GKB, the GKB Sandspreader was created to offer not only maintenance and construction but also versatility. Available with a conveyer belt on the front or rear, this machine can be used as a material handler for filling drainage equipment, a smaller dresser or even bunkers. With the standard design, you can set the speed of the conveyer belt and the disc spreaders utilising an attached control unit. The double, hydraulically powered, spreading discs are adjustable on multiple points and in this way enables you to create a faultless sand distribution.
