Poly Push Broom Fits Pickups, Tractors, Skid Steer Loaders
You can quickly sweep away sand and gravel, spilled grain or fertilizer, etc., with this new "poly" push broom that mounts on pickups, skid steer loaders, forklifts, tractors, and even utility vehicles and front deck mowers, says Grotech Inc., Dorchester, Ontario.
The broom is available in widths from 42 to 120 in. and has a head equipped with 10 strips of 10-in. long poly bristles. The strips slide into tracks built into the broom head. The bristles can be replaced by removing two bolts and sliding out the entire strip from one end of the broomhead. The top of the broomhead can be equipped with a variety of mounting brackets for different vehicles.
"It's simpler and less expensive than a hydraulic-powered rotary brush and doesn't stir up as much dust," says sales manager Tim O' Neill. "The only limitation is that you have to work the material a little more. On pickups it uses the same mounting brackets as a snow blade. Electro-hydraulic lift mechanisms for pickups are available. On skidsteer loaders you can clip it onto the bucket or use the loader's quick tach arms." A 6-ft. quick tach skid steer model sells for $1,700; a bucket-mounted model for $1,300. Pickup-mounted models sell for $1,700.
