Turfco has rolled out the larger-capacity, midsized CR-8 Topdresser.

The CR-8 Topdresser is designed for tow-behind use with minimum 30-horsepower tractors. The CR-8 comes equipped with a 2-cubic-yard capacity, self-cleaning, galvanized steel hopper and patented Turfco WideSpin technology for precision-controlled edge-to-edge spread, light to heavy and wet or dry, up to 45-feet in width.

The CR-8 was designed with versatility and productivity in mind. It can handle almost any type of topdressing material, including lime, sand, wood chips, compost, stones, soil conditioners and grass clippings. The three-position handheld switch allows users to start attachments before turning on the conveyor belt, assuring clean application starts every time.

“Customers tell us they want a greater choice in the midsize topdresser range, with both larger material capacity and more extensive spread width to move up in class, but not up to the more costly heavy-duty range,” said Scott Kinkead, executive vice president at Turfco Manufacturing. “The CR-8 is ideally suited for general topdressing applications and turf renovation projects at sports field complexes and golf courses.”

The CR-8 rolls on a four-wheel drive, walking high-beam suspension system that minimizes the impact of the 12-foot-long, 1,421-pound (empty weight) machine on the ground.  The adjustable spinner angle allows operators to drive material firmly into the turf canopy, eliminating variations in moisture control and minimizing the need for brushing.

Operators also control hydraulic speed settings manually with the same switch, allowing for on-the-go flow control adjustments.

The CR-8 derives power from the tractor’s hydraulic systems, which powers the material conveyor belt — consisting of heavy-duty polyester cord — and any attachments such as the optional Turfco Material Handler Conveyor with Swivel for close-in operations. Turfco backs the CR-8 Topdresser with a three-year warranty covering both parts and labor.

Turfco is now offering online demos of the CR-8 — as well as its other products — to help with social distancing.
