Caterpillar Pickup Brooms, available from WesTrac , sweep and deposit material into an integrated hopper bucket for easy removal and dumping. WesTrac offer the complete range of Caterpillar Pickup Brooms, which includes the BP15B and the BP18b.
Optimum sweeping style is in forward travel; however, the brooms bi-directional capabilities allow the broom to sweep in forward or reverse travel for all conditions.
Direct drive motors provide maximum performance and durability. The Pickup Brooms use a single variable speed, bi-directional gerotor style hydraulic motor, contained in a special housing that is adjustable to compensate for bristle wear. The Polypropylene/wire convoluted brushes provide optimum results for sweeping. Optional all-polypropylene and all-steel wire convoluted brushes are available for specialty applications.
The BP15B and BP18B Cat Pickup Broom are 1524mm (60in) and 1829mm (72in) in width respectively. Both models include interior deflectors, rear bucket seals, and side brush stripping direct dirt and dust into the bucket and reduce spillage and air-borne contaminants.
The large hopper capacity of these Pickup Brooms allows better productivity due to longer sweeping cycles before emptying the hopper and a wide bucket opening makes for fast, efficient dumping.
