Combiseeder joins the company's fleet of GKB machines

Bancroft Amenities Ltd a well-established specialist sportsground contracting company based in Greater Manchester have recently added a GKB Combiseeder to their large fleet of modern and innovative contracting machinery.

"We like the fact it is a dimple seeder, it gives a lot of holes per square metre and the use of the machine for the operator is very simple. We like the small compact size and its ability to seed at very low rates. The GKB build quality is very good and strong" explains Stuart Thompson, Director of Bancroft Amenities Ltd.

Bancroft Amenities maintain both natural and artificial sports surfaces with a large range of equipment. The GKB Combiseeder will be a new and valued addition to a fleet, they also run a comprehensive range of GKB synthetic turf maintenance machinery, which includes two GKB Quick-Brushes, a GKB Quick-Clean and GKB Rotobrush. Stuart adds, "The quality of service we get through Tom [GKB Machines Operations Manager for UK & Ireland] is very good but just in general, GKB's business model, their costs and what they offer makes them easy to work with."

The GKB Combiseeder is a fast and efficient way to seed or overseed your golf course or sports pitch, offering both solutions, as well as the possibility to seed multiple types of grass. It's two spiked rollers open up the soil and accurately spread seed across the full width of the machine, in and around the holes whilst two drag brushes incorporate the seed into the holes.
