Tips to Remember When Renting a Street Sweeper

If this is your first time renting out a street sweeper, know that all street sweepers are not made equal. Each sweeper excels in a different area, so be sure to rent out the one that is up to the task you need to get done. How do you choose the best unit? Here are a few tips:

Cleaning Power

Cleaning power differs with each sweeper. To help you choose the right one, ask yourself this question: “How many miles do I need to clean, and how much time do I have to clean it?”

Once you’ve answered that question, share you answer with the rental service representative. He or she will be able to provide you with a list of sweepers that can effectively get the job done.

Comfort Level

Comfort features like heated seats are often overlooked. They shouldn’t be overlooked though. Don’t forget that a comfortable operator is an efficient operator. With that in mind, you may want to get the input of the operator before renting a sweeper.

Safety First

Once the street sweeper is delivered, take the time to test it out before accepting the delivery. In particular, go conduct a safety inspection of the unit. Street sweepers have very bulky frames, which can present a safety hazard for passers-by and other vehicles. Make sure all warning lights, signs, and sirens are working properly before accepting the sweeper.
