The council identified the Turf Tidy as one of the options.
Wirral Borough Council operations and support manager Bill Hancox and was involved in the tender process and said: "Sharrocks had identified that the Turf Tidy was a product that would fit the specification – a demo not being needed due to having dealt with Charterhouse Turf Machinery before and knowing that the Redexim equipment was high quality."
Dougie Archibald from Charterhouse assisted Sharrocks in the installation of the machines at the end of 2013. A mixture of flail and scarifier blades were selected for the purchase.
In addition, both Turf Tidys are soon to be fitted with wing blades that cause a ‘draft’ under the machine which will allow debris to be sucked up into the hopper.
The scarifier option will be brought into play later in the year for end of season maintenance.
