Hi, I'm Ted from everythingattachments.com and we're here today at my house. We had about five or six inches of rain in less than an hour last week. Half the gravel from that road up there that's a gravel road has washed out into our asphalt road here, and we're going to collect it with this collector broom. It can also be called a bucket broom.
It's basically a sweepster in front of a skid-steer bucket to where it collects all of the debris instead of just sweeping it to one side of the road. This is some pretty good gravel here so I'm just going to put it on my property after we get it collected, and that way we won't be driving over it all week.
Engage the broom with our auxiliary hydraulics and then we're just going to go slow forward with the cutting edge down near the ground. This should be collecting all the of the gravel and debris left on the road. I'm going to give it just a little more RPM.
You could be using any kind of skid-steer. You don't necessarily need a small one like this to be using.
They also make a water kit to go over the top of this so you can spray a small stream of water out to keep the dust completely down. Water kit would be nice in this case where it's got so much dust.
I can't get the bucket back at an angle like that. You're able to get all the dirt to the back so you won't have to keep emptying it to get up the last little bit. plusI don't want to take a lot of it, just a little bit. See what I got here. We collected our gravel out of the road over there. We're just going to dump it up here in my side lot to cover up where I'm missing a little bit of gravel.
You can always turn the broom over in the opposite direction to make sure your bucket's clean. All right, now we're going to go back and make another pass over in my driveway and finish up what we got left since the bucket is full.
Now that we've emptied some of the gravel that we've collected up in the road we're going to finish getting the gravel here out of our driveway. We're going to remove some of the gravel on the second cut through I made to put in our underground storm water drainage, because I'm going to pour these cracks full of concrete in the next few days. This sure does beat doing it the manual way.
All right, so that looks like we've got it swept up here pretty good and we'll just treach that out a little more later and we're going to pour concrete in the holes.
Some of the features of the sweepster hopper broom. It's got the standard sweepster nylon 50 percent mix nylon and wire sweeper underneath it. It's hydraulically driven with a hydraulic motor here. It has a similar to a standard skid-steer bucket attached to the back of it hinged right here. And then with a replaceable, and that's important, a replaceable cutting edge there. So if you're keeping your edge down to make sure you're getting all your debris, mud and things up off the pavement you can replace this. You can adjust with your brushes of how much sweeping you're doing, and as they wear right here you will be lowing your sweeper head down to get all the debris up as it wears or if you've got something really tough to get up. Standard couplers, no special flow, standard flow machine. Has your standard skid steer quick attach on the back re-enforced here good.
This is the best hopper broom I know of. Simply you're going to dump it like you would a bucket. When you get ready, you can reverse the rotation of the brushes to help dump all the stuff out of it. Works great when you want to collect your debris instead of just pushing it to the side of the road.
My neighbor wouldn't have been really happy if I had just pushed all that gravel over in his grass for him to mow so we got it up for him where he wouldn't have to mow it.
