Factory Cat 48 / 48HD

Used Industrial Rider Floor Sweeper

Why a Factory Cat 48 instead of other sweepers?

The Factory Cat 48 has a very effective dust screening design not seen on other small rider floor sweepers.  It uses a permanently mounted polyester felt filter to capture large amounts of air born dust from inside the broom chamber, without blocking the passage of air through the filter. When the dust reaches a point a of saturation on the filter, it will fall back into the debris hopper. A hand operated mechanical filter shaker is used to assist this process. This style of filter is called a "bag house" filter and is often seen in wood shops and industrial plants.

We have installed this style sweeper machine in Norfolk VA shipyards, bagged chemical warehouses, lime mines, concrete bag plants, machine shops, and kitty litter factories with great success. No other small rider sweeper will work as well at controlling dust and also handle the rough use applications. If it works well on these tough jobs, you can be assured that it will work great in more typical applications, and keep your maintenance costs low as well.

• Two side brooms and a main broom create a 48 inch sweeping path.

• A 4.0 cubic foot hopper slides from the side of the frame to manually dump accumulated debris.

• Two or four 185 AH batteries will operate the sweeper for 4 to 8 continuous hours.

• Shown with optional battery operated vacuums for "off the aisle" debris or dust.

• The battery charger is built in.
