Durability, quality, cost, and versatility are what you can expect from our MB Hydra 48 Inch Self-Propelled Walk-Behind Rotary Pavement Sweeper. This Asphalt Power Broom is made to last and save you time and money. Power Brooms are designed to brush tough caked-on mud and dirt from the pavement in preparation for new sealer. They are also used to clean walkways and paths from leaves, snow, and gravel.
Compared to pavement blowers, a power broom offers much more versatility and attachment choices, giving you more options and minimizing your labor and equipment costs too. The MB Hydra 48 Inch rotary sweeper is self-propelled and only requires a single user. And it has a large assortment of attachments and uses making it a great investment for the linestriping and sealcoating contractor.
Typical asphalt sealcoating preparation usually involves blowing the dirt from the area and manually scraping loose and hardened debris from the surface. The cleaning and preparation can take longer than the re-sealing process and many times mud and dirt are left behind. This is where the power broom really is needed. A single-pass will usually remove the pavement debris leaving the pavement ready for new sealcoating.
From asphalt prep, snow removal, turf dethatching or leaf removal, this Rotary Power Broom might be one of the most versatile pieces of equipment you invent it!
- Surface sweeping of sidewalks, roads, parking lots, tracks, etc
- Construction clean-up
- Snow removal
- Turf dethatching
- Leaf and debris clean-up
Availablity Note: 48" brooms are generally made-to-order and might have up to a 4 week lead time. Please consider this when ordering.
