USEFUL TIPS

More flicking potential while pulling at 3 mph or a fast

walking pace. The  faster you pull the Sweep-N-Fill (SNF), 

it will perform  more like a drag brush. A  proper, slower

pace will bring faster results  (requiring fewer passes).

Make all  adjustments - leveling, brush aggressiveness settings, chain  tension, etc. with the transport wheels off  the ground and the  drive wheels resting on  the ground.

Keep tire pressures  at 12-14 psi.

 

 

When brushing  in circular patterns, alternate direction of  travel between clock-wise and  counter

clock-wise routinely to  avoid brush  wearing into a cone  configuration due to brushing in  the

same  circular direction.

FILLING AERIFIED GREENS

• Apply more sand in  center of green and leave  outside  perimeter void of sand.

• Brush center until holes are filled.

• Then work from center of green and circle outwards,    moving excess sand to the  perimeter.

lNlTlAL SET-UP

I. On a  hard level surface hook  the SNF to a desired tow    vehicle and  activate the  actuator to  lower the SNF  unto  the  drive wheels with transport wheels off  the ground. 

II. Level SNF by  adjusting tow  hitch up  or down to    obtain same  ground clearance under  the tongue (tow  bar) and the back  frame bar.  (tongue will be parallel to    the ground plane.)

III. Slide cardboard  under each brush.

IV. Adjust brush  height adjuster at each end of  brush  until the brush lightly touches the  cardboard across the    length of brush.  (tightening nut raises the brush

 and loosening the nut lowers the brush).

V. Adjust chain  tension by loosening chain  idler bracket  and push  idler bracket down with  light pressure, 

 re-tighten idler bracket. (this will provide chain    deflection of 1/2" to l" along the long  run of the chain).

VI. Remove cardboard. Travel to brushing site and  lower  SNF fully with  drive wheels resting on  the turf.  Adjust  brushes so they rest on  the turf with  brush height  adjusters. Then loosen nuts  on brush  height adjusters

 to leave 1/8" space  between nut and washer. This allows  for  floating of the brushes to follow

 contour of  the turf.

VII. Adjust brush aggressiveness on turf as needed.

 (loosen  nut for  more aggressiveness  or tighten  nut for  less aggressiveness)

Brushes  after time may become denser and lose some  flicking potential due to the  individual bristles becoming weaved together. The brush can be brought back to it's original looseness and flicking potential by combing the brush with either a pitch fork or mulching fork.
