The Verticutter blade is a thin, straight, rectangular blade. It is made out of hardened spring steel.
Deep Verticutting is normally required when the ground is compacted, and the ground needs to be aerated. Prior to Verticutting the ground should be watered to make the ground soft. You can Verticut up to a depth of 25-30mm. This is below the root level of grass.
By Verticutting you can aerate the green, then fertilize and irrigate it. Nutrients can now penetrate down to root level and rejuvenate the green. Before this could not happen, due to compaction, water and nutrients would just lie on top of the grass and not penetrate the ground.
Verticutting will not only loosen the ground, but also bring up dead roots and thatch, encouraging further growth.

What is a cylinder mower?
A cylinder mower is a lawnmower that features a cutting cylinder (a reel of blades that form a helical shape around a shaft). The cutting cylinder is in constant contact with a bottom blade/bedknife and when in use, utilises a shearing action to cut the grass between the blades.
Why use a cylinder mower instead of a rotary mower?
A cylinder mower will deliver a far superior finish in comparison to a rotary mower, especially on the lawn that is kept relatively short (i.e. below 15mm in length).
An additional benefit to utilising a cylinder mower is the fact that it will also promote a healthier lawn over the long-term.
Is Protea Turf Equipment really South African?
Yes, we take pride in the fact that over 95% of our components are locally sourced and all fabrication takes place within South Africa.
Does Protea Turf offer ride-on mowers?
We do not manufacture ride-on mowers; however, our entire range of mowers is self-propelled. It is possible to fit a trailer seat on a select few of our products, enabling the operator to sit and be towed by the machine during cutting.
Do you offer services on your machines?
Absolutely. We encourage all Protea customers to consider having their machine serviced at least once a year. By doing so, wearable components can be replaced before they cause avoidable damage to the machine. A Bonus - our quotations on repairs and services are 100% obligation-free.
