BALI Registered Affiliate member PSD Groundcare, introduces the DZC 600 Overseeder from Eliet makes high tech overseeding possible at an affordable price. As the years go by, the grass is subject to ageing and scarifying, and spraying can help to briefly interrupt the decline. However, the only long-term solution is to rejuvenate the grass.

The key to obtaining successful turf is overseeding
With the Eliet Overseeder, you can renovate tired and thin grass in no time at all. This inexpensive alternative can take place quickly and guarantees a visible result in less than a month. The grass will be available for normal use immediately after overseeding which for some customers is extremely important.

The Process

Since the new grass seed is inserted between existing vegetation when overseeding, it is essential for the success of the treatment that the seed can germinate as soon as possible and the patented operating principle of the DZC 600 ensures ideal conditions for the introduction of seed:

1. Cutting open the soil

The cutting blades at the front of the machine cut open 10mm (0.4") to 15mm (0.6") deep grooves in the soil of the lawn in preparation for the grass seed.

2. Removal of excess soil
The blades rotate over the top and cast the soil in an arch to the rear of the machine so that it does not fall into the newly cut grooves.

3. Precision sowing
A clever and compact seed distribution system, Helix Seed DuctTM, carries the seed under the projected excess soil into small funnels leading to discharge channels precisely located above the clean grooves.

4. Injection
A small air pressure generator blows air through the seed funnels, so the seed is blown while it is being distributed. This helps the seed to settle faster and with more precision in the grooves.

5. Rollers
The powered rubber roller immediately follows the seed distribution process and ensures that there is good contact between the soil and the seeds by pressing the earth down.

6. Covering the seed
The flow of projected excess earth falls just behind the roller on the sown area. The earth covers the seedbed and provides a protective layer for the seed, increasing the chances of germination and growth.

The Eliet DZC 600 Overseeder has been trialled and tested and is approved by STRI. As the world’s leading sports turf consultancy, STRI provides a state of the art testing and research centre offering innovative testing techniques to improve the quality of turf and sports turf.
