ALS contracts’ fleet of machinery has again expanded with the addition of an additional Vredo Overseeder from Campey TurfCare.
On Friday 27th July 2018 ALS received the machines that offer the latest technology in overseeding. The Vredo Overseeders offer an extremely high germination rate due to the V-shaped disks that place the seed directly into the ground, at a pre-set depth, ensuring that seed to soil contact is achieved therefore aiding germination. The roller on the back of the machine closes the gap created by the disk to ensure that surface remains level and intact. This accuracy provides the ALS contracts team with the ability to efficiently carry out overseeding operations on a wide range of playing surfaces.
Dave Harvey, Manager of the ALS Contracts department, outlined how this will help his team to continue to deliver nothing less than the excellence that customers have come to expect. He said “The 35mm spacing between the blades means that the seeding is more accurate and a healthier, closer sward is achieved. The machine drops the seed directly into the soil and the weight of the roller ensures that the slit is closed meaning that there is no seed left above the surface for the birds to eat!”
The recent hot weather will have increased the need for overseeding and there is a noticeable increase in demand for the ALS contracts’ team services, therefore early booking is advised. To book you’re the ALS Contracts team’s services, please call; 01952 259281
