Questions to Ask the Manufacturer Before You Buy a New Top Dresser

If you’re looking for a high-quality, commercial-grade top dresser to keep your public green space, athletic field, golf course or campus looking its best, it’s important to make sure you know your options before making a purchase. After all, a top dresser that works for one organization might not be the best choice for another. Consult with the manufacturer of the top dresser you’re considering and ask the following questions to ensure you choose the right machine for your unique needs.

Remember that not all commercial top dressing machines are created equal, so if you want to keep your turf as beautiful and as healthy as possible, let the experts at Millcreek help you narrow down your options. We’re standing by and ready to help in any way we can.

How Long Will Your Machine Last?

When considering a new top dresser for your golf course, public park, athletic field or other space, it’s important to ask the manufacturer about the anticipated lifespan of their machines. After all, there’s nothing worse than investing time and money into a top dresser only to have it break down after one or two seasons. To keep your turf fields, fairways and green spaces in tip-top shape for years to come, our commercial-grade top dressing machines are designed with farm-tough construction, a five-stage powder coating process and thick, high-quality steel. So before you choose a commercial-grade machine, make sure you understand the quality and reliability of its materials.

How Much Ongoing Maintenance Will the Top Dresser Require?

All commercial-grade top dressers will require some degree of ongoing maintenance to ensure they function properly and safely. Before you make your decision about a top dresser for your turf or green space, it’s important to understand the commitment you will need to make to the machine you choose. At Millcreek, our commercial-grade top dressers are designed with polyethylene floorboards to protect against cracking, rotting, splitting and peeling, and an optional spray-on polyurethane lining can provide additional protection. From compost and woodchips to sand and infield mix, we take pride in our low-maintenance, high-performance top dressers that will help your operation run smoothly day in and day out. Plus our technicians are standing by to answer questions and help make the maintenance process as smooth as possible.

How Will Your Top Dresser Make My Life Easier?

Essentially, the goal of a commercial-grade top dresser is to help you save time and money, increase productivity, decrease man hours and reduce waste on your property. When comparing different top dressers, consider asking the manufacturers what their machines can offer you and how you will benefit from their equipment. At Millcreek, our Turf Tiger models move twice as quickly as comparable machines, and our heavy-duty drive system is designed to last for years to come. You might also consider our Saber Tooth beater technology which can also boost productivity, switching from high- to low-volume flow as needed. If you have any questions about how a Millcreek top dresser can help reduce stress while saving you time and money, our experts are standing by to help. A top dresser should do more than simply spread material, it should make your organization run smoother, so be sure to ask about this before making a purchase.
