Towing vehicle suspension may change the tine height at speed.  It is a standard service for an authorised ArenaMate representative to check the SSR settings on delivery.

RFB - Double Roller

Pro: easy to setup & use

Simple and adaptable operating system with completely adjustable tine heights for a wide range of surfaces.

Pro: 3PL compatible
