I tell my guys we need to make a good impression for the neighbors.
I used to have a power sweeper for the skid steer. Mainly for doing construction cleanup on large jobs. Can usually pick up a few side jobs in the area if I have a machine parked in a busy construction zone. The sweeper paid for itself several times over. Also did a few parking lots for commercial accounts. Have a guy blow out the corners, and curbs with a leaf blower and the skidsteer did the rest.
Now I wish I had it for landscape jobs. It's an extra thing to put on the trailer, but you can scrub the roads clean quicker than a laborer can figure out which way to hold the broom.
