Fast Aggressive Cleaning of Airport Runways & Larger Flat Surfaces

The Piranha is a Tow Behind Magnetic Sweeper Designed for Cleaning Large Flat Surface Areas

ranha-series-logo-bluestreak-equipment-h60px

Fast, Aggressive Cleaning!

The Piranha is designed for cleaning large areas like airport runways and roads so it has some special features.

First of all, lots of power, to allow higher travel speeds while still picking up debris. The unit has 2 rows of 4.5″ x 4.5″ magnetic housing. Each magnet housing has 3 layers of magnets packed end to end un-spaced with a metal backing plate to increase the size of the magnetic field and direct it downwards to increase pickup performance.

It also has on board debris bins since when cleaning large areas, you could be a long way from home when you need to clean off the magnet.

The tires are highway rated to allow you to pull the unit down the road from location to location.

Cover more ground even faster by hitching 3 units together with the optional Piranha Multi-Hitch Accessory

I am very impressed with the quality construction of the unit.

"We quickly discovered that the unit grabs cut-up pieces of steel belted radials that spill from our dump trucks as we carry them to the landfill site. In closing, what used to take four hours to accomplish with an ATV mounted magnet is now done in 30 minutes. I highly recommend the Piranha120 to others for purchase. Its quality and performance is top notch."

A Tow Behind Magnetic Sweeper Built to Travel

To sweep larger areas you need a magnet with power to travel faster.

The Piranha has two rows of 4.5″ x 4.5″ magnetic housings giving it more magnetic pick up power so you can operate at higher speeds.  Picks up metal debris at operating speeds up to 15 mph/24kmp.

Each of the 4.5″ x 4.5″ magnet housing has 3 layers of magnets packed end to end un-spaced with a metal backing plate to increase the size of the magnetic field and direct it downwards to increase pickup performance.

The unique Slingjaw clean off system makes removing debris from the tow behind sweeper fast and easy. While the on board debris bins are large to stow the debris until you arrive back to your debris drop off location.

Piranha magnet cleaning up FOD on runway

by R. Gorman - Operations Manager - Highlands County Landfill on Piranha™ Magnetic Sweeper
quality and performance is top notch
Industry: Landfill
Location: Florida, USA
Product SKU: P120

Just a note to tell you that I am very satisfied with the Piranha120 that I recently aquired for use at the Highlands County Solid Waste facility in Sebring, Florida. I am very impressed with the quality construction of the unit. It is heavy duty in all respects.



The unit performs very well, even in somewhat adverse conditions, such as pictured, where we not only sweep our roads, we also sweep along the sides. We quickly discovered that the unit grabs cut-up pieces of steel belted radials that spill from our dump trucks as we carry them to the landfill site. In closing, what used to take four hours to accomplish with an ATV mounted magnet is now done in 30 minutes.



I highly recommend the Piranha120 to others for purchase. Its quality and performance is top notch.
