Catch Basin Cleaning
Some municipalities combine their street sweeping with their catch basin cleaning, which means they need the ability to lift leaves, silt, sand, gravel and litter out of the catch basin. Cleaning catch basins regularly prevents streets from flooding and keeps the rain run-off flowing as desired.
Air machines are perfect for combination sweeper and catch basin cleaning, if equipped with a boom style hose or catch basin cleaning hose feature. The boom style hose options allow for ease of operation and better maneuverability of the hose over a catch basin. The Elgin Whirlwind, Elgin Megawind and Elgin Crosswind are all excellent options for a combination sweeper catch basin cleaner. A hand held hose or litter hose is not suitable or durable enough for this application.
