Choosing A Sweeper - The 5 Things You Need To Know

 

HOW TO CHOOSE A SWEEPER

Delve into the 5 things you should know if you want to buy a floor sweeper:

1. CLEANING WIDTH OF BRUSHES

Many manufacturers present the data by adding the cleaning width of the centre brush and side brush. This data is easily detectable and comparable to the data issued by the manufacturer. Can influence and affect purchase price and working time performance.

2. HOURLY CLEANING CAPACITY AT MQ

The figure in the price list is usually theoretical, calculated from the cleaning width of the centre and side brush, multiplied by the sweeping speed declared by the manufacturer.Attention! Do not consider the maximum travel speed

3. ACTUAL CAPACITY OF THE WASTE CONTAINER

Many manufacturers consider the “container capacity” including the volume occupied by dust filters. This is also a fictitious fact, which greatly alters the economic valuations and comparisons that can be made to decide which floor sweeper best suits your needs.

4. CORRECTLY EVALUATE THE FILTER SURFACE

The dust filter is one of the most important organs for the smooth operation of the floor sweeper, so carefully examine the capacity of the filter surface and the quality of the filter material, whether in fabric or on paper.

Attention! If the filter is on “paper” consider the number of folds and the distance between them. A “paper” filter with an upper filter surface, but if it is made up of so many very close folds, it is clogged earlier (the machine powders), compared to a lower filter surface, but with more distant folds (because the filter cleans better and has greater filtering autonomy).

5. MACHINE WITH OPERATOR ON BOARD

Check the type of technical adjustment.

Compare the type of driving, safety, comfort, ease of use.

With front steering wheel: the operator is in front of everything.

All RCM cleaning machines put the operator in front:

  • More visibility
  • More safety
  • More cargo capacity
  • More filtering surfaces
