The Koro Story - a brief history

The brainchild of Ko Rodenberg, the Koro Field Topmaker came to market in 1997 as the key machine in a renovation programmedesigned to improve pitch quality and extend playing hours on natural turf soccer pitches.

The acquisition of the manufacturing rightsby Imants in 2009 and the fine-tuning of the “Fraize mowing” renovation practice, has lead to the design of a new range of rotors.Campey Turf Care Systems have been at the fore in developing the Koro by Imants Field Topmaker into a system that can be used on awide range of surfaces for a number of different renovation practices. “Koro-ing” is now an established renovation practice worldwide!

Terraplane® Rotor



The Terraplane Rotor® now leads the way in accuracy of cut, blade durability and surface hygiene. Coupled with the Field Topmaker’s infinitely fine, depth adjustment (accurate to 0.1mm ). The Terraplane® Rotor will shave off the precise amount of organic material required, leaving a clean, smooth and even surface. The durability of the tungsten-faced blades prolongs the accuracy of cut, and reduces the down-time associated with changing blades. The un-rivalled surface hygiene of the Terraplane® Rotor eliminates any clean-up pass and saves time, labour and fuel costs.





Universe® Rotor



A modern approach to managing excessive thatch build-up in warm season grasses is “Universe Fraize Mowing”.

Most warm-season grasses are prone to the rapid accumulation of thatch in the sward. Conventional verticutting and scarifying only removes around 7 – 10% of the surface matter, and unless done on a regular basis cannot keep up with the accumulation of thatch. A radical approach is to remove all the organic build-up in one pass. The unique feature of the “Universe® Rotor” is that it can be set accurately to leave rhizomes and stolens in place, thus eliminating the need to re-sprigging.


Once exposed to sunlight by removal of the canopy, re-generation is rapid, often with full recovery in 3 – 4 weeks. Removing the thatch and organic debris minimizes water retention at the surface, ensuring that any available water passes directly to the rootzone. In transitional zones, “Universe® Fraize Mowing” is used to speed up the transition from winter grasses to warm season grasses. The Universe® Rotor will take out the cool season grass and any organic build – up, leaving rhizomes and stolens in place. By removing the compaction for water and nutrient, and exposing them to light, the transition period is dramatically reduced.






The original concept of the Universe® Rotor was for removing the organic build-up from the surface of the semi-synthetic, natural turf pitches that are now common in professional stadiums around the world. The Universe® Rotor achieves excellent surface hygiene without damaging the exposed synthetic fibres, often in one pass!










Annual renovation of sportsfields and stadium pitches

Fraize mowing with the new Terraplane® Rotor now forms the platform of the renovation practice for the majority of Premiership and Football League Clubs, as well as other established sporting venues like The All England Lawn Tennis Association’s Wimbledon tennis courts. “Koro-ing” removes all unwanted organic matter, and reduces Poa-Annua to a minimal level, leaving the surface flat, level and even. Follow-up renovation includes decompaction and top-dressing, before over-seeding, sprigging or sodding.





Special Application

Koro by Imants Field Topmakers fitted with Digging Rotors have been used to good effect in Japan, following the nuclear reactor tragedy at Fukoshima in 2011. The surfaces of hundreds of sports fields, parks and other grassland areas have been removed and decontaminated material buried. The accuracy of the Koro machines has meant that a critical depth setting can be maintained resulting in fast regeneration without the need for resprigging or sodding.






Conventional Scarifying / Verticutting




Koro by Imants Field Topmakers can be used for conventional scarifying or verticutting, conveying the excess thatch into an adjacent trailer or truck. The extra collection capacity is far more efficient than an integrated hopper and greatly increases productivity, especially if two or more trailers can be utilized. The Scarifying Rotor can be fitted with either 3mm tungstentipped blades for fairways & sports fields, or 1.5mm blades on the FTM1200 & FTM1500 models for finer turf. Integrated, adjustable brush strips are fitted to improve collection and surface hygiene. A mid-mounted, anti-scalping roller is available for undulating ground.

New design feature

The conveyor and elevator belts on the latest FTM2000 and FTM2500 models are now 40% wider, thus increasing capacity and therefore improving productivity dramatically.
