PSD Groundscare, the leading distributor of professional machinery, have announced the launch of a new Overseeder from ELIET. As the years pass, every decorative lawn is subject to ageing. Grass dies and species disappear which causes a reduction in the density of growth. This gives opportunity for pests, weeds and moss etc to take over the lawn.
Scarifying and spraying can help to briefly interrupt the decline, but the ONLY long term solution is to rejuvenate the grass. The key to success is overseeding and the NEW overseeder from ELIET makes high tech overseeding possible for an affordable price.
The patented operating principle of the DZC 600 ensures ideal conditions for the introduction of seed:
1. Cutting Open the Soil - The cutting blades at the front of the machine cut open 10mm -15mm (0.4" - 0.6") deep grooves in the soil of the lawn in preparation for the grass seed.
2. Removal of Excess Soil - The blades rotate over the top and cast the soil in an arch to the rear of the machine so that it does not fall into the newly cut grooves.
3. Precision Sowing - A clever and compact seed distribution system, Helix Seed DuctTM, carries the seed under the projected excess soil into small funnels leading to discharge channels precisely located above the clean grooves.
4. Injection - A small air pressure generator blows air through the seed funnels so the seed is blown while it is being distributed. This helps the seed to settle faster and with more precision in the grooves.
5. Rollers - The powered rubber roller immediately follows the seed distribution process and ensures that there is good contact between the soil and the seeds by pressing the earth down.
6. Covering the Seed - The flow of projected excess earth falls just behind the roller on the sown area. The earth covers the seedbed and provides a protective layer for the seed, increasing the chances of germination and growth.
Stuart Mercer, Sales Director of PSD Groundscare said:
"We're excited to be able to offer such an exciting NEW product to the professional groundscare market. The ELIET range is renowned for it's innovation and high performance and with the ability to scarify when overseeding isn't required, I'm sure our customers will be amazed at what the new overseeder can achieve."
The NEW DZC 600 overseeder will be available to view on PSD's stand at Windsor 2nd - 4th September 2014 stand no. C80.
