Industry leading fraise mower
The Imants KORO FTM with the patented CAMPEY™ UNIVERSE® rotor is the industry leading fraise mower. The FTM will remove unwanted surface matter such as Poa annua, thatch, weeds, or the entire surface to a depth of 2”. A side conveyor removes debris directly into a trailer leaving a level and even surface. The FTM 1.2 and FTM 1.6 are designed and built for fine turf applications such as golf courses, sports fields, and small turf areas. An optional mid-mounted roller can be used for more aggressive undulations. The FTM 2.0 and FTM 2.5 are designed for maximum efficiency for sports fields and sod farms. All FTM models can be fitted with CAMPEY™ UNIVERSE® rotor, Terraplane® rotor, Scarifying rotor, or Digging rotor.
