A sweeper is a mechanized piece of cleaning equipment that acts like a traditional broom to treat solid waste, but on a larger scale.
It is used for cleaning floors in industrial premises, warehouses, hangars, etc., as well as streets. There is a wide range of sweepers available from fully mechanical models (without motors) for small areas to combustion engine street sweepers used for cleaning cities. Sweepers should not be confused with scrubber-dryers (not covered in this buying guide). Sweepers perform a solid waste sweeping function while scrubber-dryers perform a floor cleaning function using a liquid detergent.
