Brush Away the Harsh Weather & Keep Your Site Clean

As the weather becomes harsher and wetter, the more prone your site becomes to a build up of mud, dirt, debris and general mess. Keeping your site and the road to your site clean is imperative to ensuring accessibility, safety, productiveness and organisation. One of the quickest and easiest ways to maintain your site throughout these months is to use a telehandler or tractor mounted brush, or sweeper collector attachments. In this latest article we explore why it’s important to keep you site clean and how Ace Plant can help!

How Does A Mounted Brush or Sweeper Collector Work?

Brushes and sweeper collectors attach to either a tractor or telehandler, and in some cases may attach to other fleet machines. When attached to a tractor, attachments are hydraulically driven by the spools on the tractor. When attached to a telehandler, the attachments are powered by the auxiliary third service hydraulics.

A contractor brush will work by sweeping debris, litter, and dirt to either the left or the right and has an adjustable height jockey that allows the user to simply adjust the height to ensure optimum performance. At Ace Plant we offer a Tractor Mounted Contractor Brush available for hire, for short and long-term periods.

Sweeper collectors do what their names describe! They sweep up mess and collect it for easy and simple waste management. These attachments are far better for managing debris, dirt and litter rather than simply clearing the path by moving it to the side. We offer the Syclone Rear Mounted Sweeper Collector and the Site Sweep Telehandler Mounted Sweeper Collector; both are available for hire over this winter!

Increased Safety

Of course, one of the main benefits of using a brush or sweeper collector attachment is that it helps to improve the safety on your site. The brush or sweeper collector will clear up mud and debris, meaning there will be far less chance of people slipping, tripping or causing an injury any other way. Beyond this, machines and equipment will be able to manoeuvre easier on clear pathways, avoiding further difficulties and potential crashes.

Optimise Efficiency

Clear roads and clear sites will mean that your workforce can enter sites easily and operate as efficiently as possible. Without the debris or slippery dirt and mud plastered around the site, workers will be able to move around easier and focus on the task at hand with reduced risk and far fewer interruptions or distractions.

Optimum Cleanliness

The overall main purpose of brush and sweeper collector tool attachments is to improve cleanliness. Cleanliness of a job site not only increases safety and improves efficiency, but can also set the tone of a job site. A positive tone can massively impact work rate and willingness to get tasks done. Cleanliness is also vital for surrounding residents or pedestrians; keeping the road or walkways clean is vital to ensuring as little disruption is caused as possible.

Provide A Better Experience

Beyond all of the above, brushes and sweeper collector attachments will allow you to provide a better experience to anyone on or around your job site. Whether this is clients, employees or routine inspection officers, staying on top of your site with a brush or sweeper collector attachment will only leave people with a positive impression and aid in building your reputation.
