On the Beach
The Barber Surf Rake features a new Sanitizing Conveyor "S-Belt." This new belt design maximizes sand penetration and removal of extremely fine debris. Belt perforations, mounting tines underneath the conveyor and eliminating retaining bars now reduces the risk of residual sand removal. Barber beach cleaners work to clean, level and grade any beach they are set to work on.

Have you heard about Plugr turf aerators? "My crews have 11 SourceOne Plugrs in the field. We use them all, from the 400 (22-inch PL400) to the self-propelled (30-inch PL855H). These machines are less strenuous to use and maneuver and a whole lot better than drum type aerators. There's just nothing else that works this well." That's from Ken Heltemes of Weed Man in Raleigh, N.C. What more needs to be said?
