Debris removal is an often understated and overlooked process in the maintenance of golf courses, cities, universities, and more. Whether you’re looking to clean up firework debris after a Holiday or pick up leaves in the fall, debris removal can be a tedious process Luckily, our friends over at Harper Turf have developed a self-propelled, 4WD turf sweeper that’s tough on debris and easy on turf.
We’re talking about the Harper Hawk.
A brief overview of Harper Industries

A company built on Midwest values, Harper Turf has established itself as the leader in debris removal and pickup.
Harper Turf Equipment: The Hawk
The Harper Hawk is a self-propelled turf sweeper designed to efficiently pick up debris on turf and hard surfaces. With an innovative design and improving technology, the Hawk has revolutionized what it means to be a turf sweeper.
Designed to tackle tough debris, the Hawk utilizes Harper Turf’s recirculating air technology and power paddle technology to provide a clean and efficient pickup system and environment.
With a Kubota 24.8HP, 4-cylinder diesel engine and a 4WD drivetrain (the only 4WD sweeper on the market), Harper Turf has designed the ultimate turf sweeper.
Three Key Features of the Harper Hawk by Harper Turf
Harper Turf’s Recirculating Air Technology
Harper Turf introduced its recirculating air technology in 2007. This cutting-edge technology minimizes noise and dust, ultimately leading to cleaner operating environments.
To accomplish this, a suction fan creates low pressure in the system, which in turn pulls the debris up into the hopper. Once inside the hopper, the air filters through vents or screens on the sides and top of the hopper. Then the air is forced down to recirculate the air which creates a cleaner sweeping process.
Along with creating cleaner sweeping environments, this technology also creates far less noise pollution, leading to more available hours for operation.
Additionally, this technology requires less maintenance than traditional air expulsion. There are no extra filters, and cleaning out the hopper is easier than ever.
With the Harper Hawk’s two-stage pickup system, Harper Turf has developed a sweeper that can handle the toughest debris with little impact on the turf below. The brush rotor and paddle configuration allows for a smoother flow of debris, thus eliminating common clogging issues.
This configuration allows Harper Turf’s Hawk to perform efficiently with one pass to pick up even the toughest of debris.
The Hawk comes equipped with a large hopper that’s designed for easy cleaning functionality. Coming in at 3.5 cu yards, the Hawk’s hopper has more than enough room to keep your operators running efficiently.
Not only does the Hawk have a larger hopper for extended usage, but it also comes equipped with a hydraulic lift to raise the hopper up to 6 feet allowing for easy debris removal from the hopper.
This large hopper and hydraulic system ensures smooth operation and reduced downtime.
Beyond the standard, Harper Turf also provides several options to customize your Hawk specifically to your needs.
