    Overview for Turf-Tec TSHEAR2-M Shear Strength Tester

    The Turf-Tec Shear Strength Tester, also known as a shear vane apparatus, tests the stability of the athletic field turfgrass root system with a scientifically-tested shear vane foot. This is used in many football and soccer stadiums to determine the type of cleats that will perform best and ensure the athlete’s proper footing during play. Accidents and slips are prevented and this also creates a safer playing field for the athletes.

    With a one-piece welded design, the Turf-Tec tester is built to last. It is durably made of zinc-plated steel with a stainless steel plunger and screws for years of service. The tester works by pressing down and turning it until the turf breaks. The device gives a reading in Newton Meters and compared with other areas. These tests help determine the optimum choice of cleat regardless of the soil type, field moisture, turf variety, and weather conditions.

    Measure shear strength on professional playing fields before the game with the Turf-Tec shear strength tester. Made in the USA, this comes with a shear vane foot, cleats, and highly precise torque wrench calibrated in Newton Meters (0-30 Nm). A hard plastic protective case and a 1-year limited warranty are included for additional device protection.
