Choosing the Right Big Sod Roll Equipment


A Comprehensive Guide to Choosing the Right Big Sod Roll Equipment

If you’re looking to install big rolls of sod, it’s essential to choose the right equipment to ensure a smooth and efficient installation process.

In this guide, we’ll take a look at some of the key factors to consider when choosing big sod roll equipment.

1. Thickness of the Sod

Thick-cut sod is more expensive and heavier than regular-cut sod, which means less square footage per big roll of sod and even less on the truck. It also requires more soil, which means less topsoil for the farmer, and more equipment, time, and labor on both ends (sod farm and installation at the field).

2. Sunlight and Soil Type

Evaluate how much sunlight the area gets where you’re placing the sod, as well as the type of soil you have.

3. Equipment Options

There are several types of equipment available for installing big rolls of sod. Some of the most common options include:

Big Roll Installer:

This machine is designed to lay big rolls of sod quickly and efficiently. It can be used for both sports fields and landscaping projects.

3-Point Sod Roller:

This attachment is designed to carry and lay rolls of sod with automatic braking for controlled handling as you unroll the sod into position and a relief valve to protect the roll from over-squeezing.

Big Roll Harvester:

This machine is used to cut big rolls of sod from the field. It can be used for both sports fields and landscaping projects.

4. Safety First

When working with big sod roll equipment, it’s important to prioritize safety. Ensure that all operators are properly trained and that all equipment is in good working condition. Always wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves, eye protection, and ear protection.
