beach and sand cleaning

The SURF RAKE line of sand cleaners is the most versatile beach cleaning machinery on the market. By utilizing a 'top-down' cleaning method of tine raking and leveraging Barber's patented perforated conveyor system, the SURF RAKE excels at removing all kinds of unwanted material from sand. Barber beach cleaning machines are effective in removing beach pollution such as seaweed, dead fish, glass, syringes, plastic, cans, cigarettes, shells, stone, wood and virtually any unwanted debris. Barber beach cleaning machines are even used to effectively remove oil and tar balls from beach sand after oil spill disasters.

  • SURF RAKE beach cleaners are operated by one person from the seat of a towing tractor. They provide safe, fast, and efficient beach cleaning.
  • The beach cleaner's moldboard levels uneven areas in the sand to ensure an even surface for cleaning and controls the cleaning depth. It also guides the machine over large submerged objects, which protects the conveyor system and promises low-maintenance operation for the duration of the beach cleaner's life.
  • Individually replaceable stainless steel tines mounted on a belt-covered bar flight conveyor then rake debris from the sand toward the adjustable moldboard deflector plate, removing surface and submerged debris with ease.
  • As a result, refuse bounces off the beach cleaner's deflector moldboard and is deposited on the elevating portion of the conveyor , which transports the refuse to the hopper, while residual sand falls through the perforations in the conveyor. Finally, the hopper/bucket of the beach cleaner can be hydraulically raised and tripped to dispose of its contents into a truck or container up to 9 feet high.
