My problem and most costly labor issue is the soil prep. I would love to use the Toro dingo with the soil cultivator attachment to till under the dead grass and re-level all in one pass. However, the machine is just too large for jobs under 6 pallets.
I have looked into TurfTeq option and did a demo... Does not remove the dead grass or much of anything other than prep a seed bed. I need to be more aggressive when laying sod.
Do you know of any machine that is basically the same as the dingo and cultivator attachment but much smaller. Thanks. I have searched the end of the web. We currently hit the grass with 4 guys and string trimmers to zip off all the grass. , rake it all out, then use a sod cutter or tiller to help level areas. then we spread some additional leveling soil and finally lay sod. There has to be a more streamlined way.
Also thinking of using the flail type more slammed super low to scalp the lawn instead of zipping it all off with string trimmers. I have never used a flail. Would I be able to hit dirt and scalp it all?
I also did a demo with the BCS tiller and roller attachment. It was ok, but the roller was always clogged and it basically became an extremely expensive tiller.
