Street sweepers are commonly seen clearing dirt, dust, and debris from sidewalks, pavements and roads across the world. As well as fleets, that consist of a number of industrial sweeping machines, private companies and organisations may use parking lot sweepers to keep car parks and other external areas clear of dirt and mess. Here is a wide selection of used street sweepers for sale at second hand market. Find used sweepers bargains and get for low cost and high quality used road sweepers, mini road sweeper for sale and industrial floor sweepers at various locations. If you have different needs for cleaning and sweeping and you need sweeping machines such as parking lot vacuum sweeper and others this is the place for you.
The Range of Sweeping Machines
A road sweeper has to contend with a range of different roads surfaces, road conditions, and types of dirt and debris. The sweeper truck itself must be able to cope with tight cornering, and while larger street sweepers for sale are well-suited to collecting large volumes of trash without having to stop and unload, they can prove too cumbersome and bulky for some applications. In these circumstances, a smaller, electric sweeper may be better suited to the task at hand, while choosing the most appropriate sweeper technology will help ensure the best dirt collection results.
Types of Street Sweepers
The traditional floor sweeper uses a mechanical broom to literally sweep dirt and debris onto a conveyor and into a storage tank. This type of sweeper machine may struggle over bumpy, rough, or poorly maintained road surfaces, but is usually the least expensive to purchase and can prove effective for short runs over car parks and smooth, flat surfaces. However, these road sweepers in action do tend to miss smaller dust particles so may leave the area dusty, and will not usually prove suitable for sandy or dirty areas.
A regenerative street sweeper truck uses a continuous flow of air that initially blasts dirt and debris off the ground and into the air cycle. Debris is contained completely within the unit, so if you are looking for road sweepers for sale that will completely clear an area without blasting debris back into the local atmosphere, these could be a good choice.
There are also pure vacuum sweeper trucks for sale that basically operate like a giant motorised vacuum. Brushes may be used to sweep the debris up, and additional brooms may be used to prevent the majority of debris from being vented back into the atmosphere. One of the uses of this type of sweeper is as a parking lot vacuum sweeper. This type of automatic sweeper is highly effective right under the nozzle, and it can be used on damaged and uneven road surfaces. Buyers that are looking for a reliable, all-round model of road sweeper machine should consider pure vacuum models.
All-Rounder or a Fleet of Road Sweepers for sale
The differing conditions, and access to the different types of industrial floor sweeper available such as regular road sweeper or if he finds a mini road sweeper for sale a mean that many fleet owners have to decide whether to buy different models of used street sweepers for sale for different applications, or look for a single street sweeper vehicle that can meet and combat all of the challenges that may lie ahead.
Water Vs. Waterless Models
Another decision that buyers need to make is whether to opt for a water or waterless road sweeper truck. You can find a good variety of both types of road sweepers for sale, and a lot of fleet managers and sweeper owners in cold environments opt for the waterless version. There is no danger of the water tank freezing, and you will not leave a blanket of ice behind after cleaning the road surfaces.
Used Road Sweepers Planing
There are other options to consider, and decisions to make when looking for a second hand street sweeper for sale. Alternative fuel is becoming more popular than the traditional diesel model, while quiet sweepers are used when cleaning needs to be done at night or early in the morning, and the owner does not wish to upset or rouse locals. It is also worth considering that the cost of used sweepers means that a routine and ongoing maintenance plan should be set up in order to prolong the life of the sweeper, and some used small street sweepers for sale are better suited to easy maintenance than others.
Street Sweepers Manufacturers
There are a number of companies that specialise in the manufacture and supply of high quality sweeper machines and industrial sweepers. ELGIN, TYMCO, SCHWARZE, KARCHER, FMC, TENNANT, MOBIL, SCARAB, HAKO, CEKSAN and MADVAC are among some of the best known names in the sweeper manufacturing industry, as well as JOHNSTON street sweepers.
