Mechanical tine raking beach cleaners excel at removing seaweed from the sand for several key reasons:
The tines on the conveyor belt clean the beach from the top down, removing seaweed without scooping up sand in the process. This makes tine raking beach cleaners much more effective at removing seaweed than sifters, since sand often has difficulty shaking free from the seaweed when both are scooped onto the screen.
Efficiency. Due to this top-down cleaning style these beach cleaners can remove seaweed from the beach quickly, resulting in fewer hours of operation and lower operating costs.
