ATP World Tour Finals

ATP-world-tour-finals2Brava walk behind sweepers working at the 2014 ATP tour finalsAs part of a new series we will post pictures of our products working in high profile or unusual applications. The purpose is to show how diverse and effective our products are in the most unlikely theaters.

Right now the ATP World Tour final is taking place in London and between matches four of our Brava pedestrian sweepers keep the court surfaces clean and free or any litter or debris that might cause problems.

Aisles and Smiles With New Floor Sweeper

Floor sweeper (model name Slalom) in aisleWarehouses are hectic places with the emphasis on efficiency. Nothing is allowed to stop product picking or put away. This leaves little time for housekeeping. Euromec’s new Slalom sweeper thrives in this environment.

Powerful Floor Sweeper

Compact and powerful, the Slalom industrial sweeper is a slim 800mm wide machine with swinging side brushes that produce a 1100mm swept width. This means it can work in narrow aisles, ally ways and throughout a warehouse. Being a ride-on machine means it is quick and efficient with the potential to sweep over 6000 square metres an hour.

Battery Powered Electric Machine

Slalom is an electric sweeper with its rear wheels driven by a powerful electric motor. Power comes from twin 24 volt batteries that will keep the sweeper working for a whole shift. Weighing in at only 185 kgs, Slalom manoeuvres easily through doorways and between buildings adding to its versatility.

Dust Free Sweeping

Slalom’s excellent sweeping performance is a result of its forward throw sweeping system and fully vacuumised side brushes. This floor sweeper does not make dust as it works, unlike most of its competitors. Collected dust and debris is thrown into the Slalom’s rear mounted hopper which has a generous 3 square metre filter system to clean the exhausted air and contain any dust. An electric filter shaker completes the sweeping system and keeps the filters efficient by knocking off any dust that clings to the filter element.

Easy to Use

Operators love this machine. They sit at the front and have an excellent view of their working area. Light and intuitive controls fall easily to hand, their familiar layout being just like a car. Having the hopper at the back means that Slalom cleans into corners and around obstructions, an optional on-board vacuum cleaner ensures that all areas can be cleaned.

Large Range of Hard Surface Cleaners

Slalom is one of Euromec’s 34 different hard surface sweepers. From a small walk behind machine to a municipal road sweeper all are built to work reliably for many years in the toughest environments. Euromec provides service and spare parts for all its machines from a central head office in Leicestershire.

New Sweeper

Sweeper in use in gas stationA brand new sweeper has just joined our line-up – the R850. A mid-sized rider this machine replaces the R703 – a faithful servant but now showing its age a little. Major advantages of the new model are its larger size and therefore sweeping performance, strong, unitary construction which means less maintenance and its great price.

Tough Workhorse

The R850 is a tough no nonsense sweeper. This makes it resistant to operator error and easy to maintain. Its simple construction makes it very reliable in even the most arduous applications.

Technological Improvements

1The R850’s direct drive fans are a great example of technology reducing the number of parts and thereby increasing reliability. Add a larger filtering surface and this machine will perform much better than its predecessor in dusty environments. Other improvements include direct drive side-brush motors and a larger diameter main brush. For more details see this page on our website.

Cleaning Capacity

The R850 has a class leading 120 litre capacity hopper which means more sweeping between empties. Cleaning performance is enhanced by the machine’s litter gate and electric filter shakers. Available with either an electric or petrol motor this machine will provide many years of reliable sweeping.

It’s show business. No show, no business.
