• Switch off tractor / telehandler before installation. 
  • Find an area of flat hard ground. 
  • Position the weld on lugs on the bucket to be used. The lugs should be welded by a welding professional. The lug baseplate should be fully welded. Incorrectly welded lugs pose a safety risk. Do not weld to a structurally unsafe bucket. 
  • Take the brush to the bucket. 
  • Set the adjustment arms to the nearest hole that will allow you to achieve the 250 - 350mm bucket to bristle clearance. 
  • Ensure the adjustment arm bolts are tightened fully. 
  • Fit the locking pins to lock the sweeper to the bucket. Ensure the safety lynch pins are in place. 
  • Wind down the adjuster legs, until contact is made with the edges of the bucket. 
  • Connect the sweeper hydraulic hoses to the hydraulic supply on the tractor / telehandler. 
  • Raise the bucket slightly off the ground. Remove the parking legs and store them in the location provided on the top of the sweeper using the location pins. 
  • Turn off the tractor / telehandler and connect the sweeper hydraulics. 
  • Disengage the hydraulics and raise the brush. You will notice the brush has left the contact patch on the ground. This should be no more than 75mm in width and span the full length of the sweeper for optimum preformance. 
  •  If the width of the contact patch is more or less than the recommended 75mm, the adjuster legs should be adjusted up or down accordingly. 
  • Contact patches above 75mm greatly reduce brush life. Contact patches below 75mm may not provide enough abrasion for a clean sweep. 






The sweeper should be on its stands in the parking position. 

  • Remove the safety locking pins from the sweeper arms. 
  • Roll the tractor / telehandler bucket forward (as if dumping). 
  • Approach the sweeper from the rear and position the bucket weld on lugs under the quick fit hooks on the sweeper arms. 
  • Raise the bucket to engage the quick fit hooks. Safety. Ensure both hooks engage. Raise the sweeper (on the bucket) slightly off the ground. Fit the safety locking pins and lynch pins. 
  • Remove the parking legs and store them in the location provided on top of the sweeper using the location pins. 
  • Turn off the tractor / telehandler and connect the sweeper hydraulics. 




Safety. Disconnect the sweeper hydraulics before removal. 

  • Find an area of flat hard ground. 
  • Roll the bucket forward so that the sweeper swings clear. 
  • Fit the parking legs into the sockets provided. Safety. The legs are designed to fit in one direction only. The location pin must pass through the socket and the leg. 
  • Lower the sweeper until the front of the parking legs almost touch the ground. 
  • Remove the safety locking pins. 
  • Continue to lower the sweeper unitl the bucket weld on lugs disengage from the quick fit hooks. Safety. Never drive forward when disconnecting as this will unbalance the sweeper causing it to fall. 

Reverse back slowly away from the sweeper to allow it to stand upright in the parking position, with both parking legs in full contact with the ground. 




  • Hydraulic services should not exceed 601/min @ 140 bar. 
  • Ensure the sweeper is properly installed and adjusted. 
  • Raise the bucket slightly and engage the hydraulic drive to rotate the brush. 
  • Sweeping with collection works best when slowly travelling in reverse. Brush rotation can be reversed but no collection will occur. 
  • Always check for people and clear away obstructions before reverse sweeping. 
  • Dump collected material as you would empty a standard bucket. The sweeper will swing away from the bucket edge to allow material to be ejected. 
  • Empty the bucket regulary, as overfilling will hinder preformance. 
  • When sweeping is complete, ensure the bucket is empty, disengage the hydraulics, an set the sweeper down. 




  • Switch off the tractor /telehandler before attempting maintenance. 
  • Always use the parking stands when the sweeper is not connected to the bucket. This will prevent deformation of the brush bristles under the weight of the sweeper. 
  • Washing the sweeeper after use will improve preformance, and increase product life. 
  • Check nuts and bolts periodically for tightness and adjust if nessary. 
  • Moving parts, and bearings should be lubricated regulary with a general purpose grease. 
  • Worn or damaged parts should be replaced. 




  • Switch of the tractor / telehandler before changing the brush. 
  • Disengage the sweeper hydraulics from the tractor / telehandler. 
  • Remove the sweeper from the bucket, and place onto its stands. 
  • Remove the bearing at the non drive end of the brush core. 
  • Slide the brush core (complete with worn sections) off the motor drive unit. 
  • Remove the core end plate. 
  • Remove the worn brush sections and spacer rings. 
  • New sections are either poly or wire. These can be stacked in any combination. 

We recommend: All poly if the sweeper is to be used around livestock. An all wire brush is to be avoided as the bristles can mat together and lose their cylindrical shape. 

  • Refit new brush sections starting with a poly section, placing a spacer ring in between each section. Depending upon condition, the old spacer rings can be reused. 

Refit the core onto the drive unit and replace the non drive end bearing.
