The Wessex ProLine STC is semi-mounted to the tractor to allow the brush to follow the ground contours in work, and be lifted out of work for transport. As the whole machine is not lifted on the linkage, the STC can be operated behind a small tractor with limited lifting capacity.
The machine runs on its own four wheels, totally independent of the tractor. The front wheels are fully castoring and are re-positioned by a simple pin mechanism to adjust the working height, whilst the two rear wheels have flotation tyres to keep turf compaction to a minimum. Power is transmitted from the tractor through a heavy cast gearbox and belt drive to the rotor.
Sweeping & Collecting - When in sweeping mode, the ProLine STC is fitted with the brush rotor, comprising four banks of hard wearing polypropylene bristles which will lift autumn leaves, grass clippings and litter effortlessly into the hopper. The bristles are a generous length to give a good 'flick' action, ensuring that the material is thrown to the back of the hopper.
