Synthetic Sweeper

The NTS Synthetic Sweeper from STEC sweeps and cleans synthetic surfaces. With a PTO-driven brush, it lifts and screens infill, removing unwanted trash and debris. The brush operates at low revolutions, protecting the fibers from wear. With a weight of 485 pounds, there is minimal impact on the subbase. Because the unit rests between two rollers, the working depth can be adjusted quickly, for either regular maintenance or deep cleaning.

On the Verge

FMC Professional Solutions’ Talstar EZ Granular insecticide is now available with Verge granular technology. It yields a more uniform distribution of the granules during application, plus other benefits that make it better for the applicator. A unique, clay-based granule, Verge breaks down quickly to release the active ingredient and disappear into the landscape. Virtually dust and odor-free, the new formulation reduces exposure during application. Talstar EZ provides long-lasting control of surface-feeding pests such as ants, billbugs, chinch bugs, fleas and ticks. The non-staining product comes in 25-pound resealable bags.
