The function of a Grooming Reel is to remove thatch in the upper layers of the grass and improve its condition. As a result, bowling greens, putting greens and cricket pitches will become faster. However, the groomer is not designed to be used as a Verticutter by digging deeper into the ground (see Verticutting).
Grooming can be done midseason without any disturbance on a well cut, looked after lawn.
The Grooming Reel should be set level with the Rear Roller by adjusting the Front Roller up or down. Use a setting gauge or a long ruler to check the setting of the groomer by placing it across the Front Roller and Rear Roller. In this position the groomer blade must be level with the gauge, or stick out slightly, at most 2-3mm.
Fitting the Groomer Cassette is relatively simple. By removing 6 bolts and the Cutting Sprocket, the Cutting Cassette can be removed in its entirety and be replaced by the complete Groomer Cassette. This process should take no longer than 20 minutes.
The Groomer Reel itself can also be sold separately. Because the Groomer Reel utilises the same standard Soleplate as the Cutting cassette, it can be used to replace the Cutting Cylinder, however this process is more time consuming.
