Rick’s Tips: prepare your Dynamics units!

It is time to get your DynaSeeders, DynaCorers and DynaSpikers out and on the course!

Now’s the time for overseeding, spiking and tining to help air and water exchange, but is your kit in top condition to give you the best results on your greens?

DynaSeeders

To get the best performance from your DynaSeeders, clean them over carefully and be sure to use compressed air to clean seeders as water can cause old seed to swell and clog. Caution though, do not use pressure washers!

Check the seeder blades for wear; will they penetrate deep enough and clean enough for good germination? Are the dosing shaft drive wheels worn? Any bearings to change?

Finally, calibrate them and ensure that the seed rate is correct and you are not using more of the expensive seed than you need to!

DynaCorers

Clean them carefully using compressed air and low pressure water if required. Check tines for wear as worn tines will not work at the depth needed for aeration, coring or thatch removal.

Check all nuts and bolts are tight, inspect the rubber tine mounts for cracks and splits, and have a look for any worn bearings and replace. Set your depth and now they are ready to use!

DynaSpikers

Clean with compressed air or low pressure water, then check for wear on the blades to ensure you will achieve the spiking depth you require. Inspect bearings for wear and replace if needed, set the working depth and go spiking!

Caution: always observe good safety practises and use appropriate PPE when using compressed air.
