Colfe’s school, which is one of London’s oldest school’s dating back to 1574, has become the latest SISIS customer to invest in dedicated machinery with the purchase of a SISIS Brush-Pro ride-on brushing system for all regular synthetic surface maintenance.

Brian Atkins, who has been grounds manager at the school for the past ten years, has been an avid user of SISIS equipment for close to twenty years. When it came to replace an old SISIS Robbi triple brush that the school had used for eight years, he visited the company stand at IOG SALTEX in September 2013 to purchase the newer enhanced Brush-Pro model.

“We’ve got a range of SISIS machines from slitters, scarifiers and sweepers to the machine we use on the synthetic surface, which we use on a daily basis,” said Brian. “The Robbi had done such a good job in the previous eight years, that when the time came to replace it, we knew what our preferred choice would be. We visited SALTEX and after a demonstration following the show, purchased the Brush-Pro early this year.”

Small enough to manoeuvre through a single gate, yet capable of performing the required daily or weekly activities to keep a synthetic surface in perfect shape, the SISIS Brush-Pro ride-on system has been specifically designed for maintaining synthetic surfaces. It consists of a pair of mid-mounted oscillating brush units for periodic aggressive maintenance and three foldable rear mounted brushes spreading 3 metres for more regular maintenance, which means fewer passes are needed compared to more conventional drag brushing, causing less surface compaction.

Synthetic surfaces require a good maintenance programme in place from installation. Failure to regularly remove dirt, leaf debris and other detritus from the surface can lead to contamination of the infill, which in turn prevents rainwater from draining freely through the carpet.

Brian says that all regular maintenance of the synthetic surface is carried out in-house by groundstaff at the school. "We need to ensure that the surface is always kept to a high standard as it’s not only used by pupils but also by the local community. The Brush-Pro needed to be small enough to be able to fit through a set of gates, yet powerful enough to cope with the weekly tasks we need to complete. In that respect, it’s great.”

Colfe’s School is one of a growing number of customers to enhance their on-site maintenance equipment with dedicated synthetic surface maintenance machinery from SISIS. From schools and colleges, to premiership football clubs and also pitch installers, the SISIS Brush-Pro offers the complete in-house maintenance machinery package.

“The oscillating brushes are by far its best feature as they enable us to not only get right into the surface but also control the moss on the edges of the surface. I’d have no hesitation in recommending the Brush-Pro to anyone looking after a synthetic surface,” said Brian.

"I went into my dealer yesterday and was shown that even if they would/could fix the machine, Stihl haven't got the parts needed in stock.. not good in my opinion, but I'm guessing over the next year or so companies are all going to struggle. "

"Which cordless models are classified as industrial as opposed to domestic ? and which components set the two apart . ? 
I was always told by dealers it is down to the quality of the gearbox with fuel driven hedgetrimmers .
