  • Power to pick up a variety of litter: dirt, small pieces of cardboard, plastic wrap, metallic objects, e.g., nails, bolts, soda cans, etc.
  • The Magnetic Bar Assembly separates out the metallic objects.

  • With a simple activation, increase the suction when using the Instant Action Hose with the Auto Baffle.
  • Instant Action Hose reaches into corners, tight areas, crevices, grates, etc. Simply pull the hose wand out of the on-board holster and place the hose nozzle where needed (no special hook ups, no stopping the engine).
  • Because of dangerous debris laying within cracks and crevices, the unit employs a Crack Funnel to increase vacuum suction.
  • Walk Behind unit, 54″ long; easy to operate and maneuver – turn radius is very short making it easy to work around equipment, trailers, planes, etc.
  • Up to 40″ Wide Models enabling wide sweep coverage.
  • Need narrow sweep width, the 23″ Wide model is a customized sweep width and available for Gasoline Model.
  • Durable metal housing, frame and impeller can take a beating with most debris and litter encountered.
  • Impeller design prevents binding of impeller shaft by string, plastic wrap, and alike

  • is 10 times faster than using a manual broom
  • reduces the manual effort thus saving time and money
  • provides wide surface cleaning, powerful suction to extract debris from crevices and with the attached hose, get into tight to reach areas. trailer corners, and and rates on
  • adjustable dock lifters
  • provides one cleaning unit for multiple area types: baggage, parking apron, gate, vehicle parking, luggage/cargo staging, to name a few.
