Speed and Efficiency

The Verti-Core III is designed for high work rates. Whether it’s a golf course fairway or a professional sports field, there is quite a bit of ground to cover. The rapid aeration covering a large width makes this one of the fastest and most efficient solutions in the world of turf maintenance

Neat Aeration Pattern for Quicker Healing

Aeration is an invasive process. However, it is still essential to minimize surface disruption and balance the soil health benefits with aesthetic considerations.

The Verti-Core III features a non heaving action that punches in and out of the ground without heaving. Hold-down plates provide additional consistency in the aeration pattern and protect weaker grasses from pulling.

Improved Aesthetics of the Playing Field

Turf maintenance professionals are continually looking to improve the overall appeal of the playing field. Improved aesthetics, thanks to the Verti-Core III, contributes positively to the enjoyment of the game. The process of vertical penetration results in a perfect and uniform pattern of round holes, further enhancing the field’s visual appeal and uniformity.

The Verti-Core III in action

To get some additional feedback on how the Verti-Core III performs out in the field, we spoke with the owner of Lagniappe Outdoor Solutions in Louisiana, US. Robbie owns a full-service turf and landscaping business focusing on athletic field and golf course construction.

The Verti-Core was hands down the quietest and the smoothest of all the machines I tested

Robbie, Owner of Lagniappe Outdoor Solutions in Louisiana

He works with the NFL, PGA Tour, and Major League Baseball. One of the main areas of business for Robbie is contract aeration. 

He states that through the years, he has; “owned every make and model of every aerator on the market.”

When it came time to expand his fleet last spring, he looked at four or five options similar to the Verti-Core. He needed something bigger to accommodate upcoming projects. 

The Verti-Core was hands down the quietest and the smoothest of all the machines I tested. In addition, it was priced better.”

The final piece that made Robbie choose the Verti-Core was that you can turn anybody loose on it to operate or fix it.” The Verti-Core is not over-engineered. Its simpler, built-to-last design saves both time and money. 

The biggest change Robbie has seen since incorporating the Verti-Core into his business has been the speed at which he can complete projects. 

“My customers want us in and out of there. I can now take what was once a three-day project and cut it back to one and three-quarter days.” 

When we asked Robbie how his team had adjusted to working with the Verti-Core, he mentioned that he trained someone on it who had only been on a tractor for one day. 

Quicker, more efficient, less damage to the turf, and easy to use; that sums up the Verti-Core for Lagniappe Outdoor Solutions.

Redexim Quality and Longevity Speaks For Itself

The Redexim Verti-Core is built to last. Len Ochs of Trinity Equipment Rentals in Colton, California, has worked with Redexim equipment for over 20 years. Len enjoys the fact that the “durability has been consistently good with the product.” 

In the rental industry, this is a very important feature. Len finds the Verti-Core “easy to operate, priced right compared to the competition, and foolproof to work on.” However, one of the main benefits he finds with the Redexim Verti-Core is the speed. 

Customers have choices at Trinity Equipment Rentals, but when they want easy operation, durability, and speed, they go with the Redexim Verti-Core.
