What To Consider Before Purchasing A Ride-on Sweeper

For any large-scale business, a ride-on sweeper is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to clean large floor areas. Our ride-on sweepers come in a variety of models, from smaller sizes for indoor spaces to large ride-on sweepers for cleaning wide open spaces, yards and car parks. 

If you have been thinking about hiring or purchasing a ride-on sweeper to effectively clean your facilities floor space, there are some things you will need to keep in mind when choosing the model to suit your requirements.

What type of surface requires sweeping

When considering a ride-on sweeper for hire or purchase, the type of surface you wish to use it on needs to be thought about.

While our industrial cleaning machines are built to be versatile for many different surfaces, some models are designed specifically to perform best on certain surface types. For example, we have ride-on sweepers more suited to hard surfaces such as concrete or resin. 

How big the area is

The model and size of the ride-on sweeper you choose will largely depend on how big the area is that requires regular cleaning. You may also need to consider whether the industrial sweeper you choose will be used inside and outside.

If you have plans to clean large outdoor spaces, such as a car park, you will require a larger and more robust model of ride-on sweeper compared to a model you might choose for a warehouse or factory.

Alternatively, if you require a sweeper model that needs to be suitable for both, get in touch and we will be happy to help discuss your requirements.

The power source it will use

The power source a ride-on sweeper runs on could be the deciding factor in this decision making process. 

Battery-powered ride-on sweeper models are the best choice for zones where exhaust fumes are unwanted, such as spaces and areas where food and beverages are present. They are also quieter and cleaner but require regular charging.

Some other ride-on sweeper models run on LPG and diesel. Typically, these models are popular for large open spaces and outdoor use, where exhaust fumes and considerable noise isn’t a problem.


Industrial cleaning equipment is designed to make floor cleaning easier and save time, therefore maintenance of the machine should tie in with this.

If you are looking for a ride-on sweeper that is low maintenance and easy to take care of, take a look at our wide range of suitable models.
