For an effective care it is necessary to pick up the filling material off the turf pile in regular intervals. Coarse soilings are to be sieved and fine dust filtered. The bent turf fibres shall be reset upright and the filling material brought back to the turf fibres for stabilization. The surface shall show an even sight after treatment.
To be able to work reliable and inexpensive we developed our artificial turf cleaner SKU as an assembling unit for compact tractors. There are three different processes that can be done with this machine due to its big brush diameter of 500 mm.
1. Maintenance cleaning:
Depending on weather every two to four weeks. Coarse soiling and accumulated dust as well as abrasion is removed.
2. Intensive cleaning with loosening:
About every 3 months. Coarse soiling is removed, fine particles like dust, plant rests and abrasion is filtered, filling is loosened, elasticity and drainage effect is maintained.
3. Reactivation of a surface untreated for several years:
The hardenings are broken up, most of the filling is taken up, loosened, led back and extensivly brought back into the turf pile. Coarse soiling is removed, fine particles, responsable for hardenings, are filtered. The hardened filling is loosened, the artificial turf is loose and flexible again, accident risk decreases and drainage effect is repaired.
