McNab Sport's Osca brush
This is a tractor mounted oscillating drag brush which is extremely effective on synthetic turf. The Osca de-compacts 2G sand-filled surfaces by bringing the sand to the surface so that any compacted sand is loosened and can then be brushed back into the carpet.
The two oscillating brushes stand the carpet fibres upright and re-distribute the in-fill evenly, so as to minimise compaction on the surface, and improve the playing characteristics.
Brushing is necessary to remove excess material on synthetic surfaces and to keep in-fill mobile to prevent compaction.
Ideally, this operation needs to be carried out on a weekly basis to have a benefit to the playing surface. However, some of our clients request twice weekly visits to keep heavily used sports surfaces in good condition.
We can tailor a maintenance programme to suit your needs, twice weekly, weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
