“It’s so simple to change the cutter for the scarifier. The cassettes do just drop into place,” says one tester.
Two scarifier reels are offered with one-millimetre- or two-millimetre-thick, replaceable blades. Spacing is 12mm for thatch removal throughout the season and for autumn/spring renovation work. For its weight, the FT510 unit is highly manoeuvrable, and for its power availability it is remarkably quiet. The vibration figures are themselves a selling feature of this system.
In addition to cylinder mower reels and the scarifier, the other cassette options include the following: a Verticutter with one-millimetre, 10-fingered replaceable discs; a tungsten-tipped Verticutter; a brush for moss and debris removal; a slitter; a spiked sorrel roller; and a finishing roller.
