A clean sweep in no time
07 March 2013
A job that would take five men hand-sweeping an hour, takes one man with a SweepEx five minutes, says Broadwood International. The versatile SweepEx push broom system sweeps virtually any material and fast: fine dust, grain, small stones and pebbles, packaging scrap, metal swarf, mud and even snow.
'Simply attach a SweepEx brush to the host vehicle, be it a forklift, loader, telehandler, skidsteer or tractor and away you go,' says the company. It's claimed the SweepEx can reduce manual labour costs by up to 98%. With no moving parts the whole operation is safe and maintenance free. No chains, motors or drive belts to fail so there is never any downtime. The bristles are designed to sweep up to 450 miles and then it's just a five minute job to change them.
