TYMCO AIR SWEEPER

THIS SWEEPER HAS A SEPARATE POWER UNIT TO PROVIDE A CONTINUOUS FLOW OF AIR FROM THE BLOWER UNIT, THROUGH THE PICK UP HEAD, INTO THE DEBRIS HOPPER AND THEN REPEATED THROUGH THE SAME CYCLE. A CERTAIN PORTION OF THE MATERIAL WAS PICKED UP BY THE SWEEPER, HOWEVER, THE DUST AROUND THE UNIT AND WITH THE TRAVELWAY ARE OBJECTIONABLE FROM A SAFETY AND DRIVER REACTION STANDPOINT. THIS AIR SWEEPER DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE ADEQUATE VACUUM FOR USAGE ON THE HIGHWAY, HOWEVER, IT APPEARS TO BE SATISFACTORY FOR PICKING UP PAPER, LEAVES, ETC., IN PARKING LOT AREAS.
