Compacted synthetic turf fields are a thorn in the side of the Turf Managers. Synthetic turf fields are very prone to compaction due to intensive use, especially with minimal maintenance. Compaction of the fiber/infill will cause a harder playing surface that holds standing water, resulting in injury to the players. De-compaction of synthetic infill is essential to player safety and longevity of life of the field.
Tines on the GKB Aerator reach into the carpet layer, gently lifting and loosening the infill, while a brush on the rear of the machine lightly smoothes it back into the canopy creating a safe playing surface for all.
