Tough magnetic sweepers to stand up to the rental center environment.

The 3 Requirements for Rental Centers

Rental centers demand magnetic sweepers that can stand up to a variety of applications. People rent magnetic sweepers for all kinds of “do it yourself” construction and roofing projects or to clean up after seeing the nails and fasteners left by professional contractors.

A rental center magnetic sweeper needs to be durable and long lasting and it needs to stand up to repeated rentals and hard use by equipment renters without the need for constant repair because repairs take time, reducing the number of times a tool can be rented and repairs cost labor time and materials to fix reducing margins on rental revenues.

At the same time the rental centers need to attract rental customers with tools that equipment renters want to rent, tools that the renter believes will do the job well, and tools that look like they won’t break while being used, and tools that look like they are going to be comparatively easier to use than alternatives.

It is with these 3 things in mind that we recommend the Ecko, the RIP, the HOG and the Rhino rental center magnetic sweeper products.

Longlasting, Tough, Durable!

Longevity and durability of the tool count in the rental business. That’s why our featured rental center magnetic sweeper products include things such as;
  • Three piece “Y” shaped handle –  A “Y” shaped handle is far superior for durability providing a solid feel compared to one piece designs.
  • Nylon flange bushings – All moving joints on the RIP and Ecko are protected by nylon flange bushings for long life, no squeaking and rattling here.
  • Welded construction – The welded construction provides solid durability.
  • All aluminum construction – All aluminum construction on the RIP and Ecko ensure no parts of the sweeper become magnetized, and it also ensures no rust accumulation so that the sweeper stays looking great.
  • Durable handle grip – The handle grip isn’t going to tear and fall off in a week, the grip is super durable.
  • Paint job – The paint job on the HOG and Rhino are superior, check out why here.
  • Replacement parts – If someone ever does run over something with their truck, we sell parts for everything with a complete listing on our website, so you can put your sweeper back into service.
  • Permanently charged C8 ceramic magnets – Permanently charged magnets will never decrease in performance.
  • Flat proof tires

Quick Tip #1

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of rental center magnets?

The RIP is the big brother of the Ecko, and the Rhino is the big brother of the HOG. Both the RIP and the Rhino have more power and a few more features. Rental users want to rent tools that are top of the line, to get the performance that doesn't make sense for them to buy. I recommend the big brother versions, RIP and Rhino, for this reason.

Consider Adding Accessories

Accessories can be added to some magnetic sweepers to make the task of picking up debris easier. As a rental center consider whether your rental centers and renters will want these accessories.

1. Quick Clean Off Sleeve

We’ve found that most users like and prefer the quick clean off sleeve method for removing debris from the sweeper. A Quick Clean Off Sleeve makes cleaning off the magnet simple and easy. A Quick Clean Off Sleeve is available only for the Rhino magnetic sweeper.

2. Debris Digging Rake

About 30% of our buyers buy a Debris Digging Rake (DDR). A DDR does a lot of things; it loosens up embedded debris so the magnet can pick it up, it grooms at the same time, and it allows you to see what areas have been swept and in which direction so you don’t miss any areas. A DDR is available for both the HOG and Rhino.

Quick Tip #2

What do the staff of Bluestreak have to say on the subject of rental center magnets?

Rental Centers need tools that a wide range of customers can use which is why we reommend 2 push models and 2 tow behind models, but have not recommended any hanging or front mount models. Hanging and front mount models require more advanced or custom mounting situations that your rental customers may have trouble with. But the simple wagon style hitch on the HOG and Rhino can be attached to almost anything; ATVs, UTVs, lawnmowers, small tractors, golf carts etc. When picking a Rental Center Magnetic Sweeper make sure it will be easy to use.

Durability, Power & Easy Clean Off System.

USD$5,479.99Add to cart

(all prices in USD)

Available in 1 sweeper width: Yacare 72″

This thing is built like a tank!

The Yacare magnetic sweeper is a 72 inch wide, durable off road tow behind magnetic sweeper with spring assisted clean off!

Perfect for rental centers because it’s a towable and a lot of rental customers have vehicles capable of towing the Yacare. The Yacare is easily towed by UTV’s, tractors, pickup trucks and ATV’s. The Yacare’s heavy duty design of only steel and stainless steel makes the Yacare ideal for long term maintenance free use by rental centers.

The Yacare clean off system is entirely different from both the HOG and RHINO. It replaces the Quick Clean Off Sleeve system with an easier more durable long term solution that’s especially helpful for heavy debris conditions. The Yacare also has more power and advanced durability providing sound rationale to move up from the Rhino to the Yacare. 

The Yacare keeps all the features that make the Rhino so popular; the pick up performance in off road conditions provided by the “wrap around” design, the adjustable sweep height, flat proof tires, adjustable hitch height and optional Debris Digging Rake accessory.

This thing is built like a tank.  Check out the CAD drawings.
