The perfect combination of power and precision
The GV1000 embodies the phrase "the best just got better". It is the latest version in the evolution of the great G1000 line of groovers. First the G1000, then its upgrade, the G1000HL. Now we have the GV1000, which possesses all the attributes of the G1000 HL plus much more. With even greater levels of both functionality and durability, the GV1000 has a combination of ruggedness and incredible cutting ability that is simply unmatched. Just as its predecessors, it will become the new work-horse of the industry. The best just got better.
The New GV-V Head Assembly: perfect for the trucker, the racer, and the vast majority of grooving applications
The New GV-V Head Assembly: perfect for the trucker, the racer, and the vast majority of grooving applications. The GV-V Head Assembly is a "V" style head assembly that can hold Van Alstine "V" and "G" series blades, taking this "V" style head assembly a step further than what is used on the V100 Tire Groover. The GV-V Head Assembly comes standard on your GV1000 groover and utilizes patented "V" Technology. This new and innovative blade-holding technology offers several functional advantages. It provides an unobstructed view of the blade and includes a "sight guide" which is a feature introduced with this system. As a result, following an existing groove or creating a new groove can be done effortlessly with extreme precision. In addition, blade changing and adjustment is incredibly easy and quick. Rugged and dynamic, this tool and head assembly is the perfect fit for the trucker, the racer, and the great majority of other grooving applications. The GV-V head assembly is compatible with all Van Alstine "V" and "G" series blades, meaning it has the ability to hold blades and cut grooves from 1/32" to ¾" wide. For cutting even larger grooves, check out the GV1000 accessory head assemblies.
Interchangeable Accessory Head Assemblies – taking versatility to new levels
The GV1000 has the widest range of cutting capabilities provided by its interchangeable head assembly feature. Simply by loosening two screws, head assemblies can be changed in seconds. This provides the GV1000 with the ability to match any grooving requirements, from the mud bogger to the dirt biker.
The GV-G Head Assembly: the most universal head assembly with the ability to hold V, G, and HG blades
This head assembly is compatible with Van Alstine HG(Heavy duty) series blades giving it the ability to cut a groove up to 1" wide. Prior to the new GV1000, the G- style head assembly was standard on our line of G1000 groovers. This head assembly has proven itself by being a major factor in the success of these groovers and its record of durability and functionality speaks for itself. It is the most universal head assembly with the ability to hold Van Alstine’s V, G, and HG series blades. As a unique feature to this head assembly, blades can be changed and adjusted with the simple turn of an incorporated lever. Also, this head assembly can cut the widest range of groove sizes from 1/32" to 1" wide. However, it does not provide the level of visibility that makes the V-style head assembly so advantageous.
The GV-OTR Head Assembly: "Off The Road" - cut and carve large grooves at a multitude of angles
This is your "specialty" grooves head assembly. This blade holding mechanism enables the blade to be swiveled and locked at a multitude of angles which provides a wide range of grooving and carving capabilities. Carving lugs and creating grooves that efficiently scoop soft terrain or grip rocky surfaces are possible. The OTR head assembly is used in tractor pulling, rock crawling, and mud bogging applications. The GV-OTR head assembly is compatible with Van Alstine HG and SHG(Super Heavy duty) blades. See blade information for complete list of blade series and sizes.
