One of the most basic yet important maintenance requirements for your synthetic turf is removing unwanted debris. The 760 LitterKat Synthetic Sports Turf Debris Collector with Magnet accomplishes this needed maintenance procedure. Often times athletes bring all sorts of unwanted debris material onto the field. In addition to the athletes’ actions, additional debris such as tree droppings and dog deposits are often found on the turf. The 760 LitterKat will not pick up unwanted dog piles but will pick up the sticks a dog might leave behind.

Commercial Grade Maintenance Equipment Is The Key

The 760 LitterKat Synthetic Turf Sweeper is a compact commercial-grade sweeper. One of the LitterKats’ functions is to remove debris such as shoe spikes, small rocks, pens, pencils, bird feathers, and athletic tape. The list of unwanted debris is large and all unwanted debris poses harm to athletes. Removing debris from the field is important. Also important is understanding how the LitterKat removes debris without damaging the turf. The 760 LitterKat synthetic turf sweeper operates without churning up the infill material. The patented design of the LitterKat provides protection to the turf by not ripping or tearing the surface. The LitterKat is a split axle unit and as a result, can make tight turns without dragging the wheels.  As a result of the non-abrasive action, the LitterKat can be used daily if needed.

The infill material along with debris is deposited in the two removable hoppers. The twin 12-volt vibrators, act as a sorter of the debris and redistributes the clean infill material. The unwanted debris is held in the hopper baskets. A 6-foot magnet is always included with the LitterKat and will remove all ferrous metals.
