The Sand Pro 2040Z provides zero-turn-radius maneuverability, an industry frst for golf course bunker rakes, the company says. Its patent-pending Lift-in-Turn system, paired with a fex-tooth rake, allows the 2040Z to groom contoured bunkers, steep slopes and tight fngers, all without leaving tire marks or teardrop mounds of sand. The 84-inch-wide fex-tooth rake has three reversible rubber trowels designed to keep bunker liners from tearing and turf on bunker edges safe. It has a top transport speed of 12 mph.
