Improve road safety by removing metal debris
Why Add a Magnetic Sweeper to your Grader?
While smoothing over roadways, shoulders, and parking lots, picking up hazardous metal debris without the need for another machine or laborer is a great upgrade to improve efficiency and safety. This is possible with the addition of a Bluestreak magnet that can stay attached to your grader permanently, collecting any ferrous material left behind by accidents, construction or parts fallen off of vehicles that can pose a hazard to motorists and workers.

Top 5 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Grader Magnetic Sweeper
1. What is the danger posed by the debris problem?
Roadways and parking lots are constantly collecting foreign metal debris from day-to-day activities which accumulates over time to present an issue later. Whether it is causing flat tires, getting kicked up and cracking windshields, or entering water systems. Metal debris is causing an issue and needs to be minimized. A magnetic sweeper on a grader is a very proactive way to start combatting this problem.
2. How easy is the grader magnet to clean off?
A magnet may work very well at picking up debris, but how easy is it to clean off? Think through how you would clean the magnet off step by step. Make sure it makes sense to you and your situation. We try and do this for you so that clean off isn’t a difficult or time-consuming task, but some manufacturers don’t. Pay attention to the details of how this will work from start to finish, right up to the point of getting the debris in the garbage or scrap bin. Clean up can be made easier with our quick clean off sleeves that lets you remove debris quickly into a pile to be moved into a scrap bin.
3. How good is the grader magnet at hanging on to the debris that it picks up?
You are not going to be cleaning your magnet off constantly, so it’s important that when your magnet does pick up a nail or screw that the magnet secures the debris so that it won’t fall off. If the magnet is struck by the ground or suddenly jarred, the last thing you want is for the debris to fall off again. Our “Wrap Around Feature”, not only makes sure debris doesn’t get wiped off of the bottom of the magnet, it makes the debris holding capacity higher and you’ll find in practice that most of your debris ends up on the side of your magnet not the bottom of it. This is a good indication to you why we have this feature.
4. How far off the ground will the grader magnet be positioned?
We want to make sure our products meet your expectations. Therefore, make sure you look at our “maximum lifting height” specifications for each magnet option. We bench test every one of our magnetic sweeper models to determine their maximum lifting height of a two-and-a-half-inch standard nail. Everyone knows what a two-and-a-half-inch nail looks like which is why we use this as a standard measure of magnet strength and it will give you a very good idea of magnet performance. We have videos of our products picking up various other materials so take a look at the videos in the video galleries.
5. Where do you mount a grader magnet?
A grader magnet can be front, mid or rear mounted on a variety of graders as long as enough clearance and space is present.
A grader magnet has no specific requirements of the vehicle to ensure FIT. You should however, take a look at the CAD files for each product showing overall dimensions to ensure it will work with your intended model and the anticipated mounting position.
Possible Mounting Location of Grader Magnets
Depending on application, magnet may be more effective
when mounted before or after blades.
The maximum lifting height of the Hanging Magnet Models are as follows;
Pay by Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Diners, or JCB credit card.
EFT or Bank Wire
Pay by Electronic Funds Transfer or Bank Wire Transfer.
If you are a government organization you can order with a Purchase Order and pay in net 30 days by cheque.
