Street Cleaning

I have a residential builder/developer that has expressed an interest in have their streets swept/cleaned weekly. They believe that it will reduce the sediment that gathers in the storm drains.

Has anyone had experience with this equipment.
Pricing?
Maintainance on this equipment?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I dont have any experience but if you have a skid steer you can get a broom for the front most manufactures of skid steers offer them as attachments.

CAUTION! Equipment can be pricey! Equipment maintenance is extreme. Check your liability in the erosion control arena. Price accordingly.

I bet you could make money with it. You could probably sell your services to strip malls in addition to this contractor and make a little more with it. However, my understanding is the equipment is pricey and it's maintanence intensive. Also, don't forget to check what your charges for dumping would be.

Just priced a new Tymco 210 model, $75K with a F350 cab. Look on their website they have plenty of used ones available, its www.tymco.com. As far as dumping them go you can use a dumpster thats on site since this unit has a hydraulic driven lift and dump mechanism. They offer a two day training class in Texas for maintenance. As far as training goes the dealer rep. came out and trained our guys for 1/2 a day teaching them how to drive, daily checks, and answer any questions they might have. The rep. is coming back out in a month to go over again and answer any questions that have come up in the meantime. Any other questions that you have you may PM me.
