The v-concept brush is a unique feature that prevents material spilling out the side.

The Sweepex MegaBroom 

The Sweepex Megabroom is a low maintenance attachment, with no moving parts to maintain. It can be attached to lift trucks, tractors or skid steers, and features 11 rows of polypropylene brush sections. It has reversible bristles and replaceable brush sections that are quick and easy to remove. It can handle a variety of debris, tackling things like dirt, leaves, snow, material spills, standing water, steel shavings and gravel.

The Verdict

The Sweepex Megabroom is a durable, low maintenance option that gets the thumbs up minimising dust and flying debris. The ActiSweep wins points for being European built, with the quality of manufacturing reflected in the long life of the bristles. With the option to bolt on hitch and to select from two different width ranges, the ActiSweep makes a strong case for being the more versatile of the two. The v-bristle concept is also an interesting feature of note, an innovation which distinguishes it from other models on the market.
