    I've been plowing for a few years, and this is the first time I've heard of a sweeper. What is it exactly, and what does it do? Anybody got any pics of one?

    I'll take a stab at guessing what it is. Parking lot or street sweeper. Don't think they are talking about that broom thingy Meyers sells. lol

    you would be suprised, that broom thing Meyer's sells does work for what it is designed for. It doesn't work for large areas but in a tight spot or likd a bike path it seems to work fine.

    Here is one version of a sweeper.

    Hello Summit,
    This is one version of a street sweeper(FMC,Vangaurd 4000),I figured if I was putting the sand/salt down that it was a natural to pick it back up.
    It didnt work out so well,Lets just say there is a large "Family"owned corporation that has most of the large contracts in my area.lol

    Sweepers

    I have 6 Masco sweepers cost around $45000.00 each. Each one makes me about $90000.00 each year after everything is payed. Sign up for the pavement magazine it's free. It has pictures and more info.
