We provide full contract site sweepers and road sweeping services to numerous industrial, commercial, construction, civil engineering and utility companies, local authorities, retail outlets and supermarket chains. Our sweeper operators are all CSCS Registered.

We operate one of the largest and most up to date fleets of road sweepers in Yorkshire. All our sweeper vehicles are fitted with superwash high pressure spray bars, hand lances, litter snatch wander hoses and rear-view safety camera systems.

We utilise metered standpipes as authorised by Yorkshire Water Services. Each of our sweeper vehicles carries a fully licensed standpipe.

Iveco / Johnston VT651

We operate a fleet of Johnston VT 651 road sweepers. These new sweepers are quieter and more efficient than their predecessors.

Sweeper areas we cover:

Our fleet of road sweepers can travel far and wide to service a multitude of sites across Yorkshire and the Humberside region.

As our depot is conveniently located next to the M62 and M1 we have direct and easy access to many locations across the northern regions of the UK; allowing us to “sweep” far and wide.

Due to this location we are able to provide road sweeper hire in Leeds, Bradford and Halifax. These varied works have taken place on sites varying from schools and retail parks to new housing developments.

As we continue to expand our large fleet of vehicles that are more efficient than their predecessors, we are able to travel much further than when we began in 1860; we can carry out road sweeper hire in York, Harrogate and Manchester

Not only can we cover the immediate local area, due to our amazing road connections we can cover locations a bit further afield and therefore offer road sweeper hire in Sheffield, Hull and Doncaster.

Road Sweepers

Road sweepers are a relatively new addition to the services that we provide. New in our terms means within the past 40 years!

When one of our areas of business changed and there was no longer a market to haul coal, we developed our services to include road sweeper hire. This service was a natural fit with our haulage business to clean up the mess that our tipper vehicles unavoidably create whilst carrying out their operations.

We soon built up a significant local customer base and we now work for a large number and variety of clients providing them not only with sweeper hire but a range of services including; plant hire, haulage, drain jetting, vacuum tanker hire and winter maintenance.

Our clients include many local and nationally known house building, construction, reclamation and civil engineering companies as well as retail outlets, factories, hospitals and industrial estates.

We now operate one of the largest and most modern fleets of road sweepers in Leeds and also road sweepers in Yorkshire. Our road sweeper fleet are built to the top specifications so that they can cope with whatever situation they may have to deal with. As a part of our road sweeper hire all machines are operated by fully trained and highly experiences staff. Not only do they have the standard roadbrush to gather debris; they are also fitted with hand lances and high-pressure spray bars to cover all situations. Having the high-pressure lances enable our operators to get in to tight corners and edges providing our customers with the best clean. The sweeper hire is also supported from our in-house workshops and mechanical Department who are on hand 24/7 should a vehicle have any issues.

Throughout our 159-year history as a family business, we have experienced significant changes with the development of technology and working practices.  During this time, we have moved from the use of steam with our Fowler traction engines to the latest Volvo and DAF Euro 6 Johnson sweepers.

Whether you manage a highway, construction site, industrial unit or retail location our road sweeper fleet are ideal to visit regularly and provide a full sweep service. Regular visits can reduce build-up of dirt or debris on sites and so using a sweeper hire company, such as ourselves, can get the job done quicker and more thoroughly than a manual sweep. During the summer we can even spray water to suppress dust on sites to prevent it becoming airborne and causing nuisance and health issues such as respiratory problems and eye irritation!

If you have a requirement for a sweeper or a “brush” or any of our other services and are not already working with us then please call or email one of our friendly team to obtain a quotation.
