SURF RAKE Applications
SEAWEED AND SARGASSUM REMOVAL
The SURF RAKE is the only sand cleaner that easily removes wet, heavy seaweed and mounds of sargassum. Beach cleanup can be a struggle when sargassum weed is continually deposited on the beach. For many beach resorts and communities, sargassum weed can make beach cleanup a daily effort, which necessitates some kind of beach cleanup machine. The SURF RAKE excels at removing large amounts of seaweed in both wet sand areas, where the ocean deposits seaweed on a daily basis, and thick piles of dried sea grass farther up on the beach.
Whereas sifting beach cleaners quickly become clogged and ineffective, the SURF RAKE utilizes an enviro-friendly top-down cleaning method. Using its tine-raking technology, it first removes the sargassum seaweed from the top of the sand and then digs deeper for thorough seaweed removal.
Especially in recent years in the Carribean, Yucatan Peninsula, and Mexico, Sargassum weed has proven a brutal challenge to beach maintenance teams and threatened the economic stability of regions that depend on beach tourism. An ongoing sargassum & seaweed removal machine proves a necessity when the seaweed accumulates in excessive amounts.
