TarpDevil

The TarpDevil is a brand-new innovation. This cover management system is a custom engineered tool built specifically with the golf course superintendent in mind. Its purpose is clear; to reduce the burden of deploying and collecting tarps and significantly increase the lifespan of covers through proper handling and storage.

Conservative estimates suggest that TarpDevil will pay for itself in two to three seasons with the short-term returns coming from labour efficiencies and the longer-term return coming from an extension of cover life spans through proper handling and storage.

TarpDevil FAQs

1. It is obvious that TarpDevil collects covers but can we use it for deployment as well?

A) Yes, the unit can be used for both collection and deployment preserving valuable labour and other resources.

2. What kind of tarps (covers) does TarpDevil work on?

A) TarpDevil works on all covers including permeable and solid as well as geotextiles.

3. What is the maximum size tarp that TarpDevil will collect or deploy?

A) Proper operations of the unit and how tight the tarp is rolled dictates the maximum size. We suggest that if the unit is used optimally, the standard TarpDevil (6 foot width) will collect or deploy covers that are up to 15,000ft2 provided they are folded to a 6' width. For larger covers, we do offer a custom built 10' width TarpDevil which increases the capacity with larger covers.

4. We double cover greens, does the return increase on TarpDevil?

A) Yes, the more tarps are used, the greater the savings with TarpDevil. FAQs for the Golf Superintendent

5. What is the minimum recommended number of people required to operate the TarpDevil?

A) A minimum of two people are recommended to ensure risks are appropriately reduced and the use of TarpDevil is safe and efficient.

6. I have 20 tarps do I need to purchase 20 spindles?

A) No, while you can purchase as many spindles as you wish, we recommend each unit have a core spindle and a second to speed processes and provide a backup unit. For ease of process and use and to better manage costs, a PVC sleeve is used on the spindle and stay with each tarp.

7. What size PVC sleeve do you recommend?

A) We recommend a 2 to 2 1/2" diameter sleeve be custom cut to length. Cut one for each tarp.

8. I am being told that TarpDevil extends the useful life of our covers. Is this true?

A) Yes, it is much gentler on the tarp. However, for thoses users that custom cut their permeable covers, we encourage then to exercise caution as to not fray the cut edge.

9. How is TarpDevil powered?

A) The TarpDevil is powered by your tractor's hydraulic ports.

10. Does tractor need a minimum amount of horsepower or hydraulic capacity?

A) No, there are no minimum requirements.

A) The standard unit is 6 feet wide but we do offer a 10 foot width. Note that this is a custom order.

12. Is there a warranty? If so, for how long and what is covered?

A) Yes, TarpDevil comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty that covers parts and defects in design and workmanship.

13. Does the TarpDevil require much or any preventative maintenance?

A) TarpDevil has a simple, functional and durable design. Outside of oiling the chain and greasing the bearings, the unit is maintenance free.

14. I am trying to sell the product to my committee. How does TarpDevil reduce risks?

¼ Staffing levels are always challenged in spring and fall and this lessens the dependency on labour.

¼ With a smaller labour pool required, there is less overall risk of injury.

¼ Less risk of an injury to the backs, hands, fingers and shoulders of existing staff.

¼ In spring, tarps are coming off more quickly reducing the risk of damage to greens during a warm spell.

¼ Tarps are rolled with proper tension reducing the potential for damage to covers and extends their lifespan.
