Do you get the trade magazines? They have many companies that advertise their sweepers in there.

Here is one I saw in Pro magazine
http://mascosweepers.com
they show a dodge dakota and sweeper for $32,000 or just the sweeper for $14,000

I have no idea on pricing. It also seems that they work nights to avoid traffic.

We lease a Cat skid steer with sweeper in front that sweeps into the bucket then dump sand from plowing season in dump truck and haul away!! Sweeper you charge $55.00hr and truck $45.00 per hr plus disposal fees. We clean over 60 large condos and shopping centers.
