Equip a street sweeper with a magnetic sweeper and pick up metal debris while you work.
Why equip a street sweeper with a magnet?
- To prevent flat tires on the street sweeper itself. Contrary to what even we would have thought, there’s much more metal debris out there than we thought based on the stories we hear.
- To pick up metal items that are very difficult for the street sweeper itself to pick up and otherwise wouldn’t get swept up. Given the shape and weight of some metal pieces like nails they aren’t the easiest things for street sweepers to pickup with their broom and vacuum systems alone making a magnet necessary to pickup this metal debris.
- To prevent damage to the street sweeper from sweeping up metal debris.
Types of Street Sweeper Magnets
Hanging Street Sweeper Magnets
There are so many designs and brands of street sweepers it’s hard to design a single solution that will work on everyone, but because of this there is one general type of magnet that makes the most sense for street sweepers, and that’s a hanging magnet.
A hanging magnet makes the most sense because it is a flexible solution that can generally be hung from almost any street sweeper. It’s also economical and if located and hung properly doesn’t interfere with Street sweeper operation.
Hanging magnets come in a number of configurations, designs and strengths with varying features that can make the job harder or easier. Therefore pay attention to the features of each one.

Top 3 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Street Sweeper Magnet
1. How easy is the magnet to clean off?
A magnet may work 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. 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. Opt for a Quick Clean off Sleeve so that clean off is easily done. This ensures the magnet will be cleaned off more often and as a result it will stay at maximum effectiveness.
2. How good is the magnet at hanging on to the debris that it picks up?
3. How far off the ground will the magnet be positioned?
We want to ensure our products meet your expectations therefore make sure you look at our “maximum lifting height” specification. We bench test all of our magnetic sweepers to determine their maximum lifting height using 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 standard measure of magnet strength and it will give you a good idea of magnet performance. Remember, these maximum lifting heights are in bench tests. As speed increases, magnets need to be lowered to pick up the same debris. Therefore, if you have faster moving street sweepers, which most street sweepers are as they travel around their work area, they need strong magnets to pick up metal debris at those speeds.

Make Clean Off Easier
Cleaning off a hanging magnet is normally quite difficult. Especially if that magnet is mounted underneath a vehicle where it is hard to access because of limited room. If a magnet is hanging a few inches off the ground under a vehicle, how do you clean it off? You can’t use a kick down plate that’s hinged on one side of the magnet because there’s not enough room to fold it down even if you did the magnet would pick up the debris again. And you, can’t use a pull up handle design because there’s no room under the vehicle. A Quick Clean Off Sleeve is the only method that will work.
