The big benefit of brushing-in topdressing, as opposed to rubbing it in with a metal dragmat, is that the brush bristles quickly work the topdressing down between the blades of grass, right into the surface.
On the other hand, the design of a metal dragmat means that it tends to scrape the material across the surface and therefore can require more passes to thoroughly rub it in.
Another big benefit of the Greens Groomer is that its multiple zigzag brushes move the topdressing sideways as well as forwards, and it is therefore especially effective at filling Hollow Coring holes without scuffing or bruising the turf.
As well as the standard 6' (1.8m) width, there is also a 12' (3.6m) width for brushing larger greens plus fairways in the fastest time.
The GreensGroomer is also the most superbly effective tool for maintaining 3G synthetic pitches. When fitted with the triple rake and brush attachment it levels out the rubber crumb fill, then lifts the grass fibres upright through it, then grooms a smart true surface to play on. A synthetic pitch is a big investment, so it pays to use the best equipment available to prolong its life.
