The Field TopMaker (or FTM) can be used in a number of ways to level, clean, de-thatch, and renovate turf areas, as well as the harvesting of sprigs.
It is ideal for use on soccer fields, golf courses, polo fields, municipal grass areas and sod farms.

The Field Top Maker consists of a series of blades which can be adjusted from 5 cm above the surface to 5 cm below the surface. The cut material can be deflected back on to the surface, or transferred by built-in conveyors direct into trailers for removal off site.
The machine has a high working capacdy and fine adjustment is possible. A typical soccer field can be leveled and cleaned in one or two days.
- By the mowing action of the machine, weeds and tall grass leafs can be mowed and loaded up in a trailer.
- Levelling of "bumps" on soccer fields, polo fields, golf courses and other sports grounds.
- By adjusting the machine accurately we can remove weeds, thatch layers or a complete surface. Fields can also be brought back to a perfect smoothness and be back into play after 6 to 8 weeks time with a completely new playing surface.
The advantages are that water draining ability, soil life and stability will not be disturbed. Another option is to lay rolls of turf or to plant plugs after stripping the surface.
- By performing a complete renovation we can pulverize the top layer. Or by fraising on low depth we have a low movement of soil and high capacity. The pulverized soil can be left on the field. Deep scarrfying is achieved with the scardying rotor - up to 5 cm deep and removing all material onto the conveyors.
