Using a dragmat is important for keeping fine turf healthy. It removes morning dew, which can prevent fungal activity, while helping to produce the true playing surface that is crucial for golf and bowling greens.
Campey Turf Care Systems has just introduced the impressively comprehensive Raycam range of lightweight rubber dragmats, with sizes and configurations to meet all requirements. Designed for one pass operation without bruising or damaging fine turf, they are available in 4ft, 6ft, 8ft and 10ft widths (1.2m, 1.8m, 2.4m and 3m) and can be hand-pulled, mounted on a tractor three-point linkage, or attached to turf utility vehicles.
In addition, dragmats can be used to work top-dressing into turf quickly and evenly, and for the dispersal of grass clippings. They also have a role to play in grooming sand-filled synthetic pitches and hard porous playing surfaces.
