A large number of growers use anti-root cloth or foil to cover their cultivation floors. This anti-root cloth (also known as ground cover) prevents the roots of your crops from growing into the soil, while at the same time preventing weeds from growing in between your crops. Due to the fact that ground cover is very though, it usually can be used for multiple seasons. And, if you use your anti-root cloth or grond cover for multiple seasons, of course it is very important to clean it thoroughly at every crop rotation. By properly cleaning the foil covering your cultivation floor, you prevent your crops from getting infected by diseases and plagues.

Cleaning soft and unequal cultivation floors

Steenks Service can help you with mechanically cleaning anti-root cloth and other soft and unequal cultivation floors. If you, for instance, applied a modern floor like ErfGoedFloor, than obviously you do not want to damage it while sweeping. We therefore have developed two special ground cover sweepers to assist you. These machines are custom made by Steenks Service and are designed to not leave behind any tracks in your cultivation floor. Using our ground cover sweeper also saves a lot of time compared to manually sweeping the floor.

Stefix 73 ground cover sweeper

The Stefix 73 is our compact walk-behind ground cover sweeper that can be used on anti-root cloth, and has a capacity of 3,400 square meters per hour. The sweeper is developed in collaboration with some of our clients. The result is a machine with extra wide tires, a Honda petrol engine and wide brushes. Thanks to its wide tires, the Stefix 73 is suitable for the more soft floor surfaces like cultivation floors covered with anti-root cloth. Even on these soft surfaces the Stefix 73 will not leave behind any tire tracks. Furthermore, the petrol engine makes sure that you can operate the machine for a long period of time, while the wide brushes let you easily clean large surfaces.

Stefix 135 ground cover sweeper

For very large surfaces we have developed the Stefix 135, our powerhouse when it comes to sweeping anti-root cloth or foil. This ride-on machine has a capacity of no less than 10,000 square meters per hour. Thanks to its custom designed wheels, the machine does not leave any tracks behind in soft surfaces or on cultivation floors. Just like the Stefix 73, the Stefix 135 has a powerful Honda petrol engine which allows the ground cover sweeper to be operated without any interruptions for long periods of time.

Frequently asked questions

What is a ground cover sweeper?

A ground cover sweeper is a sweeper designed for cleaning anti-root ground cover. The machine sweeps and picks up dirt, (fine) dust, germs and seeds. Cleanliness helps to prevent compaction of the ground cover and reduces weed growth during the subsequent cultivation period.

What ground cover sweepers are available?

A walk-behind sweeper (Stefix 73) and a ride-on sweeper (Stefix 135) are both suitable for sweeping ground cover. The Stefix 73 has a capacity of 3,400 square metres per hour and the Stefix 135 has a capacity of 10,000 square metres per hour.

What is the benefit of a ground cover sweeper?

A ground cover sweeper cleans thoroughly and saves on labour when compared to sweeping with a broom. Ground cover sweepers are fitted with a Honda petrol engine so that you can sweep for longer without interruption.

What’s the difference between a ground cover sweeper and a rotating brush?

A rotating brush moves dirt, while a ground cover sweeper picks it up. In addition, a brush ‘fills’ the holes in the ground cover and a sweeper does not.
