The Importance of Brooms

Brooms are a crucial part of clean-up operations for a variety of industries. Not every broom is utilized for the same purpose, so it’s important to take into consideration the different styles and bristles, ensuring the broom you purchase will meet your needs. Not entirely sure what type of broom will best fit your needs? Here’s a quick breakdown of the two most common styles of brooms available.

Two of the Most Common Styles of Brooms

Collector Brooms or Pick-Up Brooms

A collector broom (or pick-up broom) would be a good option for projects that can’t sweep material off to the side or are at risk of creating airborne debris. These types of brooms work to collect material and debris by using a bucket that’s attached underneath them. In most construction settings, a pick-up broom will generally be more suitable for the job versus an angle broom. Another benefit to the pick-up brooms is that they can often operate in both forward and reverse directions. Some examples of jobs where a Pick-Up Broom or Collector Broom would be used are:

  • Areas where environmental laws require the suppression of dust and debris
  • Construction sites
  • Residential neighborhoods
  • Heavier debris

Angle Brooms

As can probably be assumed by the name, the angle broom operates at an angle (either to the left or right) and pushes material off the surface and away from the equipment. It’s important to note that an angle broom does not capture the material that it sweeps and would not be a good option if dust control is a necessity. Some examples of jobs where angle brooms might be put to use are:

  • Snow removal 
  • Sweeping dirt, leaves, and other debris away from shoulders and roadways

Operating Tips When Using a Broom

Before you use your broom, here are some expert tips to keep in mind:

  • Only use brooms on compatible loaders
  • Use the proper downforce to protect the bristles and surface
  • Know your path to avoid damage
  • Let the sweeper broom warm up
  • Be aware of the motor’s location
  • Sweep with the wind whenever possible
  • Reduce machine ground speed when sweeping on a rough surface
  • Don’t change the rotation direction of the broom without allowing the broom to come to a complete stop first
  • Check regularly for general wear and tear
  • Place brooms on blocks or storage stands to avoid putting excess weight on the brush when storing
