At 3,800 pounds, the 600HD is the largest beach rake offerrered by H. Barber & Sons. Of all beach rakes and beach cleaning machines used by Municipalities, amenity beaches, and private facilities, it is the most widely preferred beach cleaner available. It has been successfully used in a wide variety of municipal applications .
Cleaning sand up to nine (9) acres an hour with a seven (7) foot wide cleaning path, the 600HD has the greatest sand cleaning capacity of any beach cleaner in its class. The three (3) cubic yard hopper can hydraulically lift up to 4,500 pounds of material to a clearance height of nine (9) feet and dump its contents.
The 400HD has proven to be an excellent choice for resorts, hotels and lakeshore communities. At 2,700 pounds, it is the medium-sized beach rake in the SURF RAKE lineup. It is equipped with a two (2) cubic yard hopper that will lift 3,500 pounds of debris from the sand to a dumping height of nine (9) feet. This mid-size beach rake uses the same heavy-duty conveyor and dump components as the 600HD. The 400HD can clean beach beaches at up to seven (7) acres per hour.
The 400 is the most compact beach rake in the SURF RAKE lineup. It weighs 1,900 pounds and can lift up to 2,400 pounds in its one (1) cubic yard hopper. Its hydraulic operated hopper places collected material neatly on the ground. Within one (1) hour, the 400 can effectively clean up to five (5) acres of beach sand.
The sand finisher acts as a final beach grooming tool and attaches to the rear of all Barber beach rakes. The finisher smoothes the cleaned sand, eliminating tire tracks giving the beach a combed appearance. At nine (9) feet wide, the finisher creates an inviting path. It elevates hydraulically when not in use for easy transport.

Double the life of the beach rake's frame by having it Hot Dip Galvanized! The entire steel frame of the beach cleaner is immersed in molten zinc. This creates a tough protective coating that is metallurgically bonded to the steel inside and out. This process increases the beach rake's resistance to corrosion in the harsh saltwater and sand environment.

Any BARBER beach cleaner can be equipped with a light bar, which incorporates brake and turn signals on each side with three small "running" lights centered in the middle of the bar.
All 600HDs are equipped with front brackets, which will accept bolt-on caster tires. Casters are helpful when they are used on grass or dirt surfaces to remove litter and debris. The casters allow them to follow the contour of the dirt surface to be cleaned and make the SURF RAKE much more versatile than a normal beach rake or sifting machine.
When the City of Chicago Parks District was having a problem with e-coli contamination and bacteria in the sand, they asked Barber to create a beach cleaner that could help. The new Cultivator Option was added to the back of their machine to increase the amount of sand exposed to the sun. The prongs on the back of the machine go down 12 inches into the sand. This allows the sand to be pulled up and exposed to the sun, killing the bacteria in the process.
