Features To Look For In Sweepers
If your cleaning company has decided to purchase a sweeper or if you're new to the
industry, you may have many questions about what exactly to look for when buying
a sweeper. Let's face it, most people don't know a lot about sweepers or their
features and could use some guidance about which model may be best. In the
following section, we'll examine some of the features to look for when purchasing a
street, ride-on, or walk-behind sweeper and how these features may enhance your
- One very important feature to look for in a sweeper is its operation noise level.
If your company cleans indoor areas such as schools, libraries, hospitals or
offices, a quiet level of operation is critical. You want to be able to get in, do the
job, and finish with as little disruption as possible. Walk-behinds are very good
for this type of job, but street and ride-on versions also have some measure of
quiet operation function.
- Another feature that is vital, especially in indoor cleaning situations, is a strong
filter system. If your business works in indoor areas with a heavy amount of
dust, a high capacity dust filter system may be one of the most important
features to consider. A powerful dust filter system will leave the job site cleaner
and healthier. Ride-on sweepers often have this type of filter system.
- Another point of consideration is whether you want a petrol, diesel or battery
operated machine. Many sweepers give the purchaser the option of which type
- Ease of handling is a feature that may get overlooked. Everyone is attracted by
bells and whistles, but a machine that is easy to maintain and is operator
friendly may be more valuable than one with "all the extras." Who really wants a
machine that is finicky and difficult to operate? Fiddling with controls wastes
time and money.
- Finally, look for sweepers that are durable, easy to transport, and fuel-efficient.
These features will save you money, time, and aggravation.
Of course, the above section is only meant to serve as a guideline for purchasing a
sweeper. You may or may not need all of these features and you may even need
some that were not mentioned. The best plan is to carefully look at what types of
jobs you may be handling and decide what features you'll need. Once you've done
this, you'll find that there is a sweeper that can fit perfectly into your business.
