ASC M1 Sweeper – Cleaning Machine for Astro Turf Grass
Bacchus Marsh Primary School is Victoria’s oldest and first operating State School. The schools origin dates back to 1865. It is located 40 km of the Melbournes CBD.
Bacchus Marsh Primary School like most schools around Australia have rolled out Astro Turf in the school playing grounds in order to reduce falls and associated injuries frequently experienced by students falling on bare concrete and gravel.
Recently Mr. Matthew Smitten (school grounds man) called in many sweeper suppliers to demonstrate their sweeping machines on the school grounds newly laid astro turf to test what was the best equipment on the market.
He required a machine that was capable of cleaning the astro turf playing but also wanted the flexibility to sweep clean the hardstand concrete areas around the school.
John, the maintenance person, was using a blower vac and broom previously and was getting lots of complaints about dust and noise with the blower also the amount of time taken to do it.
After doing the demo, he and his committee were blown away on how well the ASC M1 cleaned up their approx. 1.5 acres of astro turf / playing fields.
He was so impressed with the ASC M1 sweeper and said it was far better than any other product he had seen demonstrated
John was so impressed with the ASC M1 that he purchased a Mach 1 sweeper.
