The DCR rake has been specifically designed to alleviate the compaction on 3G artificial surfaces. The DCR 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 finishes up the surface.
The DCR 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 jacklegs and are adjustable from transportation. The tines are adjustable, this allows for the exact amount of desired pressure on the pitch. The rear brush can be raised and lowered. It is not recommended to use the brush alone.
The DCR incorporates a carrying tray which is useful to carry small tools, collection of litter etc.
