Campeys launch light-footed Dakota
By Sue Meeken
Campey Turf Care Systems, the specialist distributors of grounds care machinery, have added a new model to their popular line-up of Dakota Turf Tenders in the form of the Dakota 412. Like its counterparts, the high work-rate unit allows grounds professionals to move materials, apply top-dressing, spread fertiliser and sow grass seed.
With a 2 cu yd (1.6 cu m) hopper capacity and a spread pattern that is variable between 3.5m - 9m (10-30 ft), the tractor-trailed 412 shares the same dimensions as the established Dakota 420. It also benefits from having twin sets of floating wheels which further reduces the risk of ground compaction and allows contours to be followed accurately.
The Dakotas have proved highly successful owing to their efficiency and ease of use. Powered by a tractor of 30 hp or more, the 412 has an optional vibrating mechanism which agitates material in the hopper for even flow.
Wide turf tyres are fitted to the unit as standard. Using a Dakota Turf Tender, grounds care professionals can undertake several tasks with the one machine and boost productivity. This is an important feature for local authorities, contractors and large golf courses where considerable areas have to be treated quickly and efficiently
