    I've been using a poly "Sand-wedge" brush on my tennant 6500 but this seems to be wearing too fast. It's more than 50% wore after around 100 hours.

    What type of brush do most of you street sweepers use? I'm not concerned with litter pick-up, just sand.

    we use a combo of wire and poly 1/2 of each. However no brush will last long if you use down pressure.

    I always leave my brush in the float position. It just seems that with the expense of these brushes, they should last a little longer.
