    I have 2 units for sale. Great for long sidewalks or pavers. These will clean down to the pavement. Also good for dethatching and standard sweeping.

    MB power rotating broom 48" self prop., with angle just tuned up ready to work $900

    Hustler Excel 262 zero turn with 60" rotating broom $1800 obo

    I will get some pics later today and post them.

    I found some pics of units like mine to show what they look like. The Hustler model is a little bit different and has no cab. I will get more pix today.

    How many inches of snow can the mb cut through if it's not to wet? How fast can it travel?

    The most we have used it on was about 8 inches and it works fine. Goes about 4 mph.

    neither have hour meters, so I have no clue. They both run well and don't burn oil.

    If they are like the one here... they are an older slower machine than what we use today. I run Hustler Super Zs for cutting and they are night and day. On the up side Hustler built the older machines for the government market and they were built to run all day every day.
