Waterless dust abatement

Company bills the EDGE Pickup/Hopper Broom with waterless dust abatement as a cost-effective investment for material pickup, parking lot maintenance and job-site cleanup, plus indoor applications. It features:

  • Large industrial filter, eliminating potentially large clouds;
  • 12-volt shaker to dislodge loose debris from the filter directly into the hopper;
  • Slotted assembly allowing the brush to move vertically for ease of operation;
  • Hydraulic cylinder that drops the bucket floor when dumping dirt and debris; and,
  • Two caster wheels mounted on the side toward the front of the broom to prevent the user from rolling too far forward, preventing skirting and frame damage.

Available in 60-, 72- and 84-in. widths, the EDGE is delivered complete with hoses and couplers plus bolt-on cutting edge to fit most compact loaders. — Manitou Americas Inc., West Bend, Wis., 262/334-9461; www.manitou.com
