Tru Mark Volunteers to Paint NCHS Sports Activity Complex for Football

Turf _Tips, Demos, Product_Review

Each fall Tru Mark personnel volunteers to mow and paint the Norfolk Catholic High School's Sports Activity Complex football field that is used for practice, JV, Freshman/Sophomore, and Junior High games. Here for the photo album series of images.

This is an excellent opportunity for Tru Mark to demonstrate new equipment and supplies as part of our offerings. In this case we brought out a new Snapper mulching mower from Riegle Implement, Madison, NE, along with the Titan Powrliner 850 field marker equipped with the Tru Mark Titan Spray Shoe Assembly implementing the Tru Mark's Terrain Following Paint Shield technology, Embark Plant Growth Regulator, and the SwitchBack MVP field marking paint.

This is the second field marking activity following 11 days after the first field striping where Embark plant grow regulator was used 1/2 ounce per gallon of diluted paint. The lines were remowed, then repainted using SwitchBack MVP diluted 3 to 1.

In one of the first images Embark PGR shows the grass growth retarded from an paint field striping application 11 days earlier using Embark. The white grass line is about an inch shorter than the surrounding grass.

A second image sequence shows the lines mowed before repainting. Looks good without paint restriping.

A third image sequence shows a goal line repainted using SwitchBack MVP diluted 3 to 1, a goal line with a 6 inch wide line using at Titan Powrliner 850 and TR2 spray tip.

The final image sequence shows NCHS complex completed, mowed and restriped in less than two hours, only the 10 yard lines.
