Brisbane markets LTD announced today the purchase of a new Schwarze A6500 GS6 Regen air sweeper. The addition of the of the new regen sweeper is important because the A6500 GS6 offers a number of state-of-the-art advantages designed to provide a cleaner environment for the Brisbane markets.

The regenerative air process used in all Schwarze sweepers recirculates dirty air created during operation, rather than exhausting it back into the atmosphere as fugitive dust. At the same time, the thorough cleaning action of the new sweeper reduces the amount of runoff pollutants (P10 fines) available to enter our rivers and streams. These features are designed to provide greater compliance with the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts as they apply to minimizing these two major sources of air and water pollutants.

The Schwarze built sweepers also are able to sweep forward and in reverse; this is a time saving factor and also reduces the chance of injury by minimizing sweeper movement. This will also assist with the Brisbane Markets expansion plans for the future. The sweeper also has as standard a 12 volt hydraulic over ride system that allows for the dumping and non- sweeping related functions to happen without the need to start the AUX ENGINE. Proper use of this feature is also credited with drastically reducing dust as well as the chance of injury to operator and pedestrians as well as possible damage to property caused by flying debris.

If you have any questions about the Schwarze A6500 GS6’s performance at Brisbane Markets LTD, please call (07) 3915 4200 and ask for Jessie Field.
