Available in 1 size:  HOG 62″″

The HOG magnetic sweeper is the little brother of the Rhino. Whereas the Rhino is designed for applications requiring significant pickup power, such as construction sites, horse arenas and small landfills where there is either significant amounts of debris or the debris needs to be pulled up from under dirt, the Hog is designed for the somewhat lighter use applications such as gravel and dirt parking lots, rental center users, trucking terminal yards and farm driveways and yards.

 

Easily tow this compact and light magnet with an ATV, UTV, lawn mower, golf cart, forklift. The 62" width of the HOG is perfect for these tow vehicles because these vehicles are this same general width.

 

Optional Quick Clean Off Sleeve and Debris Digging Rake accessories are available.

Choose The Tow Behind Magnetic Sweeper for Your Application.

phu-bia-Magnetic Sweeper from PKO to Muenglong-blueatreak-equipment4

Consider what surface you will be working on.

When choosing a tow behind magnetic sweeper, consider the terrain you will be towing the sweeper on because the terrain you will be working on greatly affects the magnet's performance.

 ;

Bluestreak designs tow behind magnets specifically for either "flat surfaces" applications or "all terrain" applications.

 ;

If you know you will be working mainly on relatively flat surfaces such as concrete or asphalt then choose a Piranha or the smaller Razor. If you are driving on some rougher terrain or going off road onto surfaces of dirt and gravel then choose from the HOG, Rhino, Yacare, Caiman or Aardvark.

2.5inch-nails

Should you pick a magnet with the most pickup power?

Before choosing only on the basis of pickup power, keep in mind that not every application needs the most power. Some applications may benefit from having more application specific features such as a lighter frame to tow behind smaller vehicles such as ATVs or UTVs.

 

However, if you're wondering about pickup power, Bluestreak measures pickup power in terms of the “maximum lifting height using a two and a half inch nail”. Everyone knows what a two and a half inch nail looks like. This measure indicates the maximum height that the sweeper can pick up a two and a half inch nail from in a bench test. This is the best indication of performance and pickup power that is easy to understand.

 

Below are the maximum lifting height measurements of the Tow Behind Magnetic Sweeper Models.

"All Terrain" versus "Flat Surface" Tow Behind Magnets.

Flat Surface Tow Behind Magnets

Tow behind magnetic sweepers for flat surfaces are ideal for clearing very large concrete, paved or other flat surface areas of harmful metal particles and debris.

 

They are ideal for use as a parking lot sweeper or for cleaning shipping and trucking facility yards, roads, highways and airports.

 

Tow behind magnetic sweepers for flat surfaces come in a variety of sweeping widths to best accommodate the size of the area you need to sweep. The bigger the area is, the wider the sweeper that you will need to cover that area in a given amount of time.

Heavy duty solid frame construction and pickup power.

Flat Surface Magnet Features

These sweepers were meant to clean large areas and therefore there may be a need to clean the debris off the unit when you’re quite a distance from anywhere you can dump the debris. Therefore the more advanced units, such as the Piranha, have on board debris buckets that provide a place for you to quickly clean the magnet off and keep sweeping until you get back to a place where you can empty the debris bins.

On the larger models such as the Piranha, there is an option to purchase a Lights and Fender Package. The Lights and Fender Package ensures safer operation on roads and for towing from location to location.

These units are simpler than their equivalent “off road all terrain” counterparts. They do not have as many features so they are also less expensive.  They don’t need all the height adjustment features, flat proof tires, and other features like skid plates and bash bars. They tend to be a good buy.

On Board debris storage included with the Piranha magnetic sweeper.

What Is a Tow-Behind Magnetic Sweeper?

Tow-behind magnetic sweepers—also referred to as towable magnetic sweepers and tow-behind magnets—are used to keep large workplace areas free from foreign metal objects that can cause injury to employees or damage to equipment, such as nails, screws, springs, scraps, and shards. They are designed to attach to the back of flat surface, off-road, and all-terrain vehicles, which enables them to be moved across and between different locations without the need for a separate motor or another form of self-propulsion.

 

These magnetic sweepers are highly effective and efficient at picking up metal debris and waste on various types of terrain. Additionally, they are available in a variety of designs and configurations to suit different workplace needs. While all of them have relatively simple operating requirements and low operating costs, the inclusion of specific features can facilitate sweeping operations.

 

Bluestreak towable magnets are available in flat surface and all-terrain variations. Key features of our all-terrain units include:

 

  • Adjustable sweeping height to maximize performance in any given terrain

  • Adjustable hitch height to accommodate any tow vehicle

  • “Wrap around” magnet design to keep debris from being wiped off

  • Inset rear wheels to reduce bottoming in uneven terrain

  • Debris digging rake to loosen embedded debris

  • Flat proof tires

Control the sweeping height of the the Aardvark by turning the top link which pivots the rear inset wheels up and down.

All Terrain Tow Behind Magnets

Off road or “all terrain” tow behind magnets require very different design features that just aren’t found on general purpose or “flat surface” magnetic sweepers.

 

These sweepers require features to accommodate for rough terrain such as adjustable height settings and inset wheels. that help prevent “bottoming” or “ground hits” that cause the magnet bottom to hit the ground.

 

All the “all terrain” models also require greater pickup power to pull debris out of dirt or grass. They also have an option to add a Debris Digging Rake accessory which can loosen up embedded debris from dirt or gravel.

“Debris Digging Rake” feature on the Rhino disturbs the ground on rough surfaces loosens debris.

All Terrain Magnet Features

Adjustable sweeping height control is a key feature of off road applications. If the terrain is really rough you have to be able to adjust how high the magnet is off the ground so that it isn’t hitting the ground constantly, because if it hits all the time it can drive debris into the ground making it harder to pick up the debris or can push it further back on the magnet and potentially off the magnet. It’s better that the magnet doesn’t hit the ground constantly even for a sweeper like the Aardvark that is designed to take these ground hits.

Inset wheels add to the magnetic sweeper’s ability to handle rough terrain and minimize bottoming. If wheels are on the end of a magnetic sweeper there is a greater chance of the middle of the magnetic sweeper hitting the ground. By reducing the distance any one point of the magnet is away from a wheel it reduces the chances of the magnetic sweeper hitting the ground. All of Bluestreak’s tow behind magnetic sweepers for “all terrain” are designed with wheels that are inset from the ends.

Off road applications may require a mechanism to “loosen up” the debris that is embedded in the dirt and gravel, in order to make it easier for the magnet to pick it up. This debris if not loosened up and picked up will gradually make its way to the surface again over time causing the same problems you’re trying to prevent. This is why all Bluestreak tow behind magnets for all terrains have an optional Debris Digging Rake accessory which provides loosen up embedded debris.

Off road applications require greater magnetic pick up power to pull debris out of dirt, gravel or grass. Unlike concrete and asphalt, debris can get pounded into dirt, grass and gravel over time and this material “holds” the debris making picking up the debris harder. Therefore a stronger magnet is needed to pull the debris up through this material in order to pick it up. All of Bluestreak’s tow behind magnets for “all terrain” are designed for extra pickup strength with multiple layers of permanently charged magnets packed end to end, un-spaced and with a steel backing plate in order to make the magnetic field extend further downward in order to pick up bigger debris from a greater distance.

Applications of Tow-Behind Magnets

Tow-behind magnets are suitable for removing ferrous metal debris and waste in a variety of workplaces. Some of the most common applications for our tow-behind sweeps include:

Foreign object debris (FOD), such as broken-off equipment parts or forgotten tools, pose a significant risk to aircraft  for airfields. Tow-behind magnetic sweepers make it easy for airport personnel to collect any FOD that may accumulate on runways and other areas, ensuring areas are clean and clear of all metal materials that can injure employees or damage equipment.

During construction projects, any unchecked metal materials (e.g., fasteners, wire, scrap metal, etc.) can lead to employee injury and/or equipment damage. Towable magnets enable construction workers to quickly and easily clear these unwanted materials from large areas.

In agricultural facilities, metal debris naturally accumulates in and around fields, pastures, and barns as trucks and equipment come and go. This material can be dangerous to livestock and damaging to vehicles, both of which cost the farm time and money. Tow-behind magnets help farmers keep their land and facilities free from debris, resulting in a safer working and living environment. 

The roads to landfills are often rife with metal debris and waste that can damage the vehicles that drive on them. These include both passenger cars, garbage trucks, and the vehicles working in the landfill. The latter two generally have many wheels that are expensive to repair and replace, which is why it’s essential landfills invest in magnetic sweepers to keep the surrounding areas clear of ferrous materials.

On roads and highways, metal debris can be extremely dangerous. When vehicles run into it, it can cause flat tires or accidents. Magnetic sweepers are a fast and easy method of removing this unwanted material from the roadways.  

Metal debris and waste in parking lots can harm people, pets, and vehicles. It can also lower the overall aesthetic quality of the area. By investing in magnetic sweepers, property owners and managers can avoid these problems.

FOD poses similar aircraft risks for military facilities as it does for airports. The damage to equipment and injury to employees it causes can significantly decrease productivity and increase costs. For this reason, the need for magnetic sweepers to control FOD is extremely high in these workplaces.

In shipping and trucking yards, metal debris and waste come from various sources, including the transportation vehicles, the equipment used to load/unload goods, and the goods themselves. Regardless of the source, the FOD can cause equipment damage and employee injury. Magnetic sweepers help keep these unwanted materials in check.
