Our Sweepers:

Pedestrian Sweepers – Pedestrian sweepers are the smallest of our sweeper fleet. Their lightweight chassis, small size and exceptional manoeuvrability means they are perfectly suited for use in areas where space is restricted or for use on pavements and slabs.

Precinct Sweepers – Precinct sweepers is just another name for pedestrian sweepers. Small in size, they are perfectly suited to sweep areas such as precincts and shopping complexes where there is little space and many people.
