Charterhouse goes to X-Tremes for clean synthetic surfaces


x-treme-clean1-hrDesigned for firm synthetic surfaces where the sand infill acts as a stability mat, such as tennis courts and hockey and football pitches, the X-Treme-Clean uses contra-rotating circular brushes arranged in threes to vigorously brush the mat.

The X-Treme-Clean is highly versatile. As part of a scheduled renovation operation, the infill is brought to the surface where it can be cleaned and further processed by Charterhouse’s Verti-Top Vac.

Used as part of the regular maintenance regime, the firm brushes remove algae, weeds and moss. The brushes also decompact the top layer making it more permeable so that water can drain away more easily. Regular use can prevent agglutination of the top layer and significantly extend the lifespan of a synthetic turf surface.

Easy and economical to use, the X-Treme-Clean is available in 1200 and 1800 versions with working widths of 1.2 and 1.8m with two and three brush rotors respectively. Weighing in at just 225 and 300kg, horsepower requirements are 18 and 25hp, matching compact tractors already in the machinery fleet.

The first X-Treme-Clean, an 1800 model, has been sold to the City of Rotterdam, which will put it to good use on a substantial number of synthetic pitches.

x-treme-clean2-hrCharterhouse Turf Machinery specialises in state-of-the-art groundcare machinery, and the new range of synthetic turf maintenance machinery offers solutions which allow groundsmen to maintain their own surfaces on a regular basis. This extends the life of the pitch and protects what can be a significant investment in sports facilities.
