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 2 types of magnetic sweepers:
- Push/Pull/Tow sweepers
- Forklift Mounted sweepers
PPTS Series - Push/Pull/Tow Magnetic Sweepers
A rugged wheeled permanent magnetic sweeper that can be manually pushed or pulled by hand, or towed by maintenance vehicles, tractors and forklifts.
Used for sweeping roads, parking areas, tarmac, large workshop areas or any reasonably hard and smooth surface. Incorporates a self-leveling magnet to allow the towbar or handle to be operated at any height.
Magnet flips upside down for easier cleaning (the photos below show typical tramp metal collected from a short sweep of a car park).
Adjustable floor clearance of 25mm, 50mm or 75mm.
Heavy Duty Forklift Mounted Sweepers
For forklift or truck mounting.
Used for sweeping roads, parking areas, tarmac, large workshop areas and construction sites.
150mm wide forklift channels are standard. Wider channels to suit your forklift tynes are available on request.

Manually cleaned with a rag or non-magnetic scraper. However, the XHDS series is also available with an optional integrated self-cleaning tray (as pictured, closed and open). With this optional cleaning tray, you simply push down on the handles to open the tray and the collected material falls off.
