What is a skid steer broom sweeper attachment?
It is an attachment that goes onto the front of a skid steer loader. It is shaped like a giant, round broom. As it rotates, it pushes all sorts of debris out of the way.
Why is this beneficial?
Debris creates eyesores, obstructions, and safety hazards. A device that quickly clears debris from a work area or transit area improves process flow and human safety.
What kinds of debris can we clear with it?
The Skidsteer Sweeper/Broom Attachment can be used to dirt, dried mud, small pieces of trash, sticks, piled sand, broken stumps, metal scrap, and light snow.
Will this attachment work on any skid steer loader?
As long as you have a modern, full-sized loader, yes. The skid steer broom comes with a universal mounting plate.
Will we be looking at ongoing replacement costs if we invest in skid steer sweepers?
You shouldn’t be. The broom is a sturdy piece of equipment designed to handle all manner of garbage, scrap, and small, natural obstructions. Skid steer broom life is also extended by a feature on the device that keeps bristles off the ground when you store it.
Could our community use this instead of a snow plow?
Yes and no. For sidewalk areas, it is ideal because snow plows are too big to operate in sidewalks running through people’s front yard. It can also be very effective as a street sweeper for light snow. However, you do not want to push it through heavy snow drifts that block major roadways.
It’s best to use the skid steer sweeper as an accessory to snow plow operations in order to thoroughly clear both vehicle and pedestrian areas for traffic.
What does the term “manual angle” refer to?
The skid steer broom operates at an angle that can be manually adjusted up to 30 degrees.
Why is an angle desirable?
It is better than a right angled device because it pushes all the debris to one side of the loader where it can be more easily collected. A straight broom would push debris to both sides, making more of a mess.
What operates the broom?
A simple direct drive motor raises and lowers the skid steer broom. It needs no chains or sprockets to operate.
Can we use the skid steer sweeper to cleanup new construction areas?
Yes. That is one of its most popular applications, actually, because the skid steer broom can move all kinds of wood and metal scrap, along with dirt and paper, out of the way.
