The ATC Surface Cleaner has been developed to maintain artificial grass surfaces simply and effectively, both indoors and outdoors. The aim is to achieve a clean and well-dressed surface without unwanted particles and other waste, a soft and uniform base and an even playing surface. The machine is equipped with three tools, specially designed to perform these tasks.

This function removes smaller particles and waste from the playing surface. The ATC Surface Cleaner employs a simple principle: a moving device made from aluminium presses into the artificial grass and due to the softness and flexibility of the surface, rubber surface dressing granules, particles etc. are lifted/bounce up onto a sieve. The sieve is fitted with a “shaker wheel” that creates rapid side-to-side movement of the sieve. The sieve has a mesh size of approximately 6 x 14 mm. The rubber surface dressing granules fall through the sieve and are re-laid onto the playing surface. Other unwanted particles and objects remain in the sieve mesh. The pressure setting of the device is infinitely variable, and can be adjusted to the amount of granules used and the type of artificial grass. Paper, gravel, cigarette butts, torn artificial grass fibres, tape, ice cream sticks, chewing gum etc. are examples of objects that are removed by the ATC Surface Cleaner.
The ATC Surface Cleaner is equipped with a special tool, which is fitted with 48 x 3 mm steel prongs. The function of these is to loosen the rubber surface dressing granules in the topmost layer of the surface (10-18 mm). This ensures that the topmost layer of grass and rubber granules remains soft and aerated. This device is also infinitely adjustable and can be lowered and raised, according to requirements. It can also be set in a neutral position, so that the tool is not in function, if so desired. If the surface has joints or is damaged, use of the tool should be avoided in these areas.
The ATC Surface Cleaner is fitted with brushes that are specially made for artificial grass. The design and qualities of the brushes ensures that they avoid becoming clogged with loose grass fibres. The brush tool can be infinitely adjusted to the desired depth and height. Brushing ensures an even and level surface.

The ATC Surface Cleaner has an operating width of 1,4 metres and can be towed by a small lawn tractor, ATV or similar. The machine is manufactured from maintenance-friendly materials – powder painted aluminium, stainless steel and aluminium. The machine does not require any hydraulic or mechanical couplings. Recommended speed in use is 10-20 km/t.
