The Syn-Pro SSS1000 tractor mounted rotary brush sweeper by SISIS is providing Dylan Thompson, grounds maintenance manager, at Colliers Park, with a certain peace of mind.
Welsh football recently received a boost after a new training and development centre was opened in Wrexham. In a collaboration between the FAW and Glyndwr University, Colliers Park in Gresford boasts state-of-the-art facilities in a bid to promote, develop and protect football in Wales.
The impressive footballing centre also features a brand-new synthetic pitch which is kept in immaculate condition by the SISIS SSS1000 – a machine which instantly impressed Dylan.
“We trialled the SSS1000 before we purchased it and the amount it cleaned up the pitch was crazy,” he said. “From the very start we realised what a great tool it was and in those early weeks after installation it was fantastic at picking up loose fibres.”
The SISIS SSS1000 is a tractor mounted sweeper which can be pulled by any machine. The rotary brush has been designed for use on synthetic surfaces to remove surface debris, lift the carpet pile and redistribute sand or rubber crumb infill giving the surface maximum performance and extended life.
There are no tools required for the adjustment of the brush or the angle of the draw bar and to make storage easy the draw bar lifts to an upright position. With an aluminium hopper with stainless steel mesh, any infill that is collected when using the machine is returned back to the surface leaving it free from contamination of debris.
“It is peace of mind knowing that we have the SSS1000 in our armoury because it does an incredible job,” said Dylan. “The site has a lot of trees and is very windy, so we do get a lot of debris on the pitch even in the summer.
“We use the SSS1000 on the back of a compact tractor – it is nice and easy to put on, reliable, easy to adjust and requires hardly any maintenance. It also saves staff a huge amount of time because we aren’t having to go onto the pitch with rakes and blowers and put the debris into bags. The SSS1000 does the hard work for you.”
