The De-Compaction Rake has been specifically designed to alleviate the compaction on 3G artificial surfaces. The rake firstly relieves the compaction with a row of spring tines. This action pulls up the matted surfaces and the compacted rubber /sand fill. Two rows of levelling bars re-spread the fill to the surface. Finally a strip brush smartens up the surface.
The De-Compaction Rake is mounted on a four wheel chassis. The two front wheels are solid casters to allow for turning in tight corners. The two rear wheels are on jack legs. All four wheels have adjusting facilities, this means the exact penetration pressure is put on the tines. The rear brush can be removed if required or the unit may be adjusted so the brush only is in contact with the surface. The De-Compaction Rake can be pulled by it's tow bar or a three point linkage version is available. The two rear wheels can be jacked down to raise the entire unit for transport to the storage area etc. The rake incorporates a carrying tray which is useful to carry small tools, collection of litter etc.
