The Mantis was the first machine of its kind ever built. Designed in collaboration with NFL and CFL teams, it remains the gold standard for synthetic turf paint removal and extraction. The Mantis combines pressure washing, scrubbing, and vacuum extraction in one machine to remove field paint and dirt without removing infill or causing excessive turf wear.
TempLine™ developed the Mantis to meet the needs of field managers who didn’t just want to wash off the paint – they wanted to remove it entirely. The Mantis gently scrubs turf using pressurized water and hydraulic-driven brushes. It removes the dirt, paint, and wastewater using our unique vacuum bar and built-in vacuum, but leaves the infill intact and in place.
