A dual purpose brushing system that is ideally suited to either a sand or rubber crumb maintenance programme. Comprising of a pair of oscillating brush units, the OSCA 3 allows for periodic aggressive brushing to be undertaken to agitate the upper infill level helping reduce compaction, encourage fibres to stand upright and reduce the risk of contamination and surface water.
By switching off the pto, the brush system can be used as a conventional dragbrush for the more regular light brushing programme to help stand up the fibres and to move the infill around to create a level surface. Moving the infill around through a brushing programme helps to minimise the threat of moss and algae.

Once Warwick School had decided to invest in a new synthetic pitch, Grounds Manager Duncan Toon felt that the SISIS Osca 3 tractor-mounted oscillating brush was the only machine that could maintain the new surface effectively and truly justify the major investment decision.
Dan Shemesh, Director of Stadium and Training Grounds for the New York Red Bulls has praised the SISIS Osca 3 which maintains the synthetic turf on one of the club’s training fields.
William Watson, head groundsman at Hamilton Academical FC, believes that his SISIS Osca has helped the synthetic pitch at the Superseal Stadium stand up to the rigours of an extensive amount of playing time.
St Georges Park, the FA's National Football Centre, was recently awarded the Institute of Groundsmanship's (IOG) Best Maintained Artificial Pitch of the Year. It was a great achievement for head groundsman Alan Ferguson and his team, who have acknowledged the SISIS Osca as being integral to winning the award.
A synthetic playing surface often gets more use than a natural one. It is therefore imperative that Groundsmen should have a regular brushing programme, suitable for the area and usage. A programme of light brush between play, and now and again a more intense brushing to stand the pile or fibre up, is recommended.
"The oscillating brushes are the best feature and very unique. They get rid of of any compaction and also provide a fantastic finish."
"I would absolutely recommend the SISIS Osca to anyone who is looking to improve their synthetic surface."
