FAQs About Sweepers
How do you operate a street sweeper?
- Street sweepers are an integral part of surface preparation equipment. A street sweeper is driven by a motor-driven power take-off, with the transmission mounted to the rear axle. The forward motion of the vehicle powers the agitator at the rear of the sweeper unit. As it moves along streets and roads it leaves behind a trail of water washed from surface cracks, crevices and surface imperfections. Street sweepers are available in walk-behind or ride-on models. For large ride-on models, additional licensing or certification may be required. Check your local requirements.
How do street sweepers work?
- Sweepers are equipped with a watering mechanism that sprays the street. There are brushes that then scrub the dirt away and other brushes that sweep debris onto a conveyor belt which is deposited into a holding receptacle.
How much does it cost to rent a street sweeper?
- The cost of street sweeper rentals will vary depending on the brand, size and capabilities of the machine. To learn more about sweeper costs, you can visit our Sweepers for Rent page, reach out to a United Rentals expert or utilize our 24/7 customer care service.
