Magnetic Sweepers

Magnetic Sweepers are designed to remove nuisance and potentially dangerous tramp metal from roads, car parks and other hard surfaces.  They reduce tyre punctures and enhance safety.

By allowing a permanent magnet to be suspended above the ground, magnetic sweepers attract and hold ferrous parts, nails, screws and other debris as they are moved around.

Alpha Magnetics has 3 ranges of magnetic sweepers:

  • Hand Push sweepers
  • Push/Pull/Tow sweepers
  • Forklift Mounted sweepers

PS Series - Hand Push Magnetic Sweepers

  • Self contained permanent magnetic sweeper for workshops, small paved areas and construction sites.
  • 50mm floor clearance (adjustable from 25mm to 63mm).
  • simple release of collected material; pull the release handle to lift the magnet and the material falls off the lower tray.
  • fold down handle for storage.
  • available in 2 widths.
