Robust forklift sweeper
16 June 2016
The new product from industrial brush manufacturer Brushtec (Brush Technology) is designed to offer the performance of a heavy-duty sweeping attachment but in a compact size that can be used both indoors and out.
The Sweepertec is a robust forklift sweeper attachment that has applications in industrial environments such as factory floors and warehouses, but also agricultural environments where it will sweep leaves and plant matter effortlessly.
Brushtec spotted a gap in the market for a more compact model of the traditional sweeper attachment — this product measures at just 120cm (47”) in length as opposed to the standard model that usually measures around 200cm (79”). According to Brushtec, this can cause problems in small areas where manoeuvring and navigating the brush would prove impossible without risk of damage to property.
The Sweepertec comes fully assembled and is easily fitted onto the standard-sized 145mm-wide fork lift. The brush itself features 16 rows of long, stiff bristles that are securely attached to a corrosion-resistant galvanised steel frame. This robust construction enables the product to be used in almost any environment, as unpleasant weather conditions will offer no threat of oxidisation to the steel frame.
