Central Sod's Tips and Articles

Dimensions and Weight of Sod Rolls and Pallets

Posted by Ryan Wolfe on May 4, 2016 11:39:13 AM

 

There are three different types of rolls that you may see depending where the sod is from and the type of sod you purchase. Lets start with our Annapolis location. In Annapolis where we only have Tall Fescue available, we cut "Handstack" rolls with a small tractor mounted harvestor. In Centreville, we cut "Autostack" rolls, "Handstack" rolls, and "Slabs". "Autostack" rolls are cut with a large machine that automatically cuts, rolls, and stacks the sod on pallets. "Slabs" are cut with a small tractor mounted machine similar to the handstack machine. Below we will go into further detail about the specifications of each roll type.
