Direction of travel and brush rotationAlways sweep at a high enough brush speed and low ground speed to effectively discharge the material being swept.
Brush height adjustmentRemove the handle pin, twist the handle, and replace the pin. Re-adjust the axle to the correct height using both handle adjusters. Return handles to their original position.
Correct Brush HeightSet the height of the sweeper brush so the bottom of the brush is approximately 30mm lower than the bucket cutting edge. The brush must be level.
Emptying ProcedureWhen the bucket requires emptying, stop the rotation of the brush, lift your loader arms and crowd the bucket forward so the Sweeper Bucket Broom hood swings away from the bucket.
