How to choose a sweeper?
To choose a sweeper, here are the important criteria to consider: Size and type of surface to be cleaned:
The size of the sweeper should correspond to the size of the surface to be cleaned and the time the officer has to re-open the area to be cleaned. Cleaning companies will often have an intervention time constraint
in this context. Indeed, as for a scrubber
, the sweeper has a practical and theoretical performance in terms of the number of m2 per hour achievable. This performance is determined by the width of the machine and its forward speed at which the obstacles are weighted. Type of dirt to be removed:
Some sweepers are more suitable for light debris, while others are designed for heavier debris. Thus the granulometry and the volume of the waste
is also to be taken into account as the presence in the protocol of a roughing with the broom of the surface. Waste collection capacity:
Check the capacity of the waste bin and how often it needs to be emptied. The size of the bottom will also determine the autonomy
which will itself be constrained by the duration of the intervention
. Mobility and maneuverability:
Consider the sweeper's wheels and steering, as well as its maneuverability for tight spaces. The treatment of large aisles of a logistics space or of an external part integrating various obstacles must be taken into account. Power Consumption:
Some models are battery powered, some are mains powered. For small areas, you also have the option of opting for mechanical manual sweepers
which can be more than enough both outdoors and indoors. Service and maintenance:
consider service and maintenance costs, as well as the availability of spare parts. The choice of major brands such as Taski
allows you to guarantee long-lasting after-sales service and guaranteed on-site maintenance (see the maintenance contracts). Budget:
Sweepers can vary widely in cost, so it's important to determine an accurate budget before making a purchase.
