Vibratory Rollers That Walk

The Trekker™ Vibe V™ Vibratory Greens Roller is equipped with patented True-Surface® adjustable vibratory technology. Its adjustable vibration allows you to roll for turf health, speed, and consistency, while also letting you vibrate-in sand topdressing, remove dew, and smooth the greens after core aerification. The Trekker™ Vibe V™ offers five vibration settings to accomplish different tasks:

  1. Establish new greens

  2. Regular greens rolling

  3. Vibrate-in sand topdressing

  4. True your greens after aeration

  5. Prepare for tournament play

*The True-Surface® Trekker™ Vibe V™ offers the same great benefits as the original True-Surface® Vibe V™. The only difference between the two is that the Trekker™ Vibe V™ attaches only to walk-behind greens mowers, and the Vibe V™ attaches only to triplex greens mowers.
