Hilltip introduces rotary broom attachments

LAKESIDE PARK, KY — Hilltip introduces its SweepAway™ rotary brooms for use on pickups, tractors and other equipment. Available in 59- to 86-inch widths, the attachments feature a 20-inch-diameter brush for high performance in a variety of applications.ool

The SweepAway rotary brooms mount on pickups using Hilltip’s Quick Hitch mounting frame. They can also be used on tractors with the company’s STR and VTR mounting frames. Other mounting frames are available for attaching to different vehicles, such as loaders or forklifts. The mounts allow the brooms to be angled up to 25 degrees for controlling the direction of swept material.

The brooms require a hydraulic system with a minimum flow of 11 gallons per minute. If the vehicle does not meet the hydraulic system requirements, then a Hilltip Power Unit can be added. Featuring a heavy-duty design, the power unit has a KOHLER® engine that provides up to 12 gallons per minute of hydraulic flow to operate the SweepAway rotary brooms, as well as other machines.

A variety of other options and accessories are available for the SweepAway rotary brooms, including a deflector, a sprinkler kit with a 132-gallon tank, and an electrical oil-flow valve.

Headquartered in Pietarsaari, Finland, Hilltip is a leading manufacturer of road maintenance equipment in Europe. With equipment designed and built in an area that averages at least six months of snowfall every year, Hilltip is known for its extreme durability and advanced technologies. Opening its U.S.-based subsidiary, Hilltip Corp., in 2020, the company is now actively bringing these industry-leading advancements to the North American market.
