Koro – FTM Range

The undisputable success of the KORO® FIELDTOPMAKER® across all sports surfaces has helped produce healthier turf through greatly improved surface hygiene, and the remastered 1.2m, 1.6m, 2.0m and 2.5m models build on that success.

To make the machines more user-friendly for golf the weight and balance have been analyzed, resulting in a lighter, steadier experience. Solid locking pins now offer greater consistency and the overall performance is improved due to the re-designed patented UNIVERSE® rotor and angled cross conveyor.

The new angled cross conveyor has been introduced to move material evenly with perfect belt tracking, whilst the weight of the machines has been reduced using a removable 100kg that greatly improves the overall weight balance.

This redistribution of weight means a much smaller tractor can be used to run the KORO® FTM®, because the centre of gravity has been shifted towards the tractor making it easier to lift. Even when the weight is removed the machine still has improved balanced against previous models.

Maintaining the new range of KORO® FTM®’s has also been enhanced to ensure working reliability. A modular set-up allows the machine to run without belts and the strong state of the art driveline is maintenance free.

All of the range can facilitate the enhanced patented UNIVERSE® rotor which offers improved clean up and greater surface hygiene. Previous rotors will fit on the 2.0m and 2.5m models but not on the 1.2m or 1.6m.

The Terraplane Rotor® now leads the way in accuracy of cut, blade durability and surface hygiene. The Terraplane® Rotor will shave off the precise amount of organic material required, leaving a clean, smooth and even surface. The durability of the tungsten faced blades prolongs the accuracy of cut and reduces the down time associated with changing blades. The unrivalled surface hygiene of the Terraplane® Rotor eliminates any clean-up pass and saves time, labour and fuel costs.
