Spring Clean Up and Heavy Duty Sweeping
Sand, gravel, silt, salt and traction sand often accumulate in northern climates after a winter of reduced sweeping, and require rugged sweepers that are strong enough for the task. This material is often very heavy and compacted and requires a powerful broom and conveyance action to dig out and remove it from the surface.

Suitable Sweepers
Mechanical sweepers are typically the best option, as they are best suited for conveying large quantities of heavy material, making the Elgin Pelican, Elgin Eagle, Elgin Broom Bear and Elgin Road Wizard excellent options. Air sweepers can be overwhelmed with the amount of clean up and the heavy nature of this material.
