The TS98 lawn sweeper is robust in construction to withstand prolonged heavy use. British built by SCH with parts of the highest standard, this is probably the best value and one of the most effective sweepers on the market.
The sweeper may be used for grass collection after mowing, leaf collection and other garden debris. To achieve the best results when hard surface sweeping, a rubber strip can be fitted at time of manufacture (see accessories below).
The brush shaft is split in the centre acting as a differential. Therefore each drive wheel powers the sweeper brushes giving twice the performance and efficiency compared with one free wheel. The stainless steel brush shaft differential has an advanced method with grease nipple and spiral machined into the connecting pin for even distribution of grease.
Four rows of brushes, which are mounted on a hardwood stock, can be replaced once worn out by simply bolting new brushes directly onto the drive shaft without having to disturb the drive gear mechanism. If the sweeper is set at the correct height, the bristle tips just sit a fraction above the surface of the ground and will last a long time.
Due to the TS98 being manufacturerd and assembled at SCH (Ipswich), all replacement parts are readily available and can usually be despatched for next day delivery. The all-metal drive mechanism is very durable for prolonged heavy use. The drive gears are less likely to strip apposed to nylon gears used in cheaper versions.
The TS98 requires limited maintenance provided that it is used in dry conditions. A simple 'wash down' will remove any debris. If the machine is not to be used for a while, it is recommended that all moving metal parts be lubricated. Routine checking of parts to ensure bolts are secure, etc, should be all that is required.
