The Trilo S3 vacuum sweeper, from The Grass Group, is the latest product to emerge from a programme of producing equipment for use with sub 30Hp tractors. Along with lighter machines have come more competitive prices without any compromise in quality or performance.
The industry asked for a smallervacuum sweeper to work at 1.5 metres wide to work at hard to get to areas were ground pressure and dimensions mattered. The result is the Trilo S3, a smaller sister to the S4 released last year. Along with a smaller working width came a reduction in weight to only 1200kg, so that only a mid-range compact tractor of 28 HP is required.
The new design is the result of many years of experience to meet the requirements of councils, contractors Groundsmen and Greenkeepers in an economically challenging environment. The 1.5 metre full floating brush head and low ground pressure allows the machine to work under the heaviest of conditions where others may struggle. The balanced fan wheel gives a reliable and above all a safe source of power. The impeller casing can be opened at the top and has an inspection trap in the lower section to allow easy cleaning.
To cope with the amount of material collected in a 3M³ container, the Trilo S3 also features a 1.6 metre high tip facility meaning it can unload into the back of a truck or skip, keeping downtime to a minimum.
A 5 metre long 200mm diameter hand held wander hose makes the S3 suitable for versatile use all year round to clean hard to get areas such as bunkers, shrubberies or refuse bins.
The high standard of manufacture and design specification allows not only ease of use, but also means less time spent on routine maintenance allowing more time in the field and less spent in the workshop.
