Robust Ride on Floor Sweeper Required

Toll Shipping operates a daily service between Melbourne and Tasmania; they had a problem with dust, dirt and debris building up on the upper and lower decks of their ships. Being a reputable Australian company, Toll understood the importance of keeping their equipment neat, clean and safe.

The Solution

Conquest could see that the environment of this application was harsh. With large expanses of deck to be cleaned and a wide variety of operators to use the machine the sweeper needed to be tough, reliable and simple to use. After assessing the site, Conquest recommended the PB 115 D ride on floor sweeper, which is a fully hydraulic sweeper, with no belts or chains as well as a fully powder coated, steel frame and body which is important for reliability especially with so much salt water around!

The Result

“The machine has been operating on the ships now for quite a few months and Toll is very pleased: The ride on floor sweeper has been very good. It has easy-to-use controls and does a very good and efficient job. She [the sweeper] runs up and down the ship all the time, she’s done a lot of kilometres by now, especially when we dry dock the ship and it does the yard too. We would refer it to anyone, in fact have already referred it and had a couple of people come out and look at it!”
