Advance SW8000 Sweeper Pros & Cons

silica dust control sweeper

Pros: This is the best sit-down sweeper on the market today. It has the largest sweep path in its class (77") and superior dust control. Advance's dust control system beats anything else on the market.

Cons: Sometimes customers fall in love with this machine and it’s too big/ wide for their application.  

Hands-on with the Advance SW 8000 floor sweeper: This machine is very easy to use. Operators like the "one-touch" controls; a single foot pedal controls direction and activates the brooms and dust control system.

Summary: This machine is unsurpassed for its dust control and productivity gains. Also, a  well cared for SW 8000 can last 10 years, so you really get your money's worth.
