The power broom works wonderful! It's very fast and efficient to clear the sides of the asphalt, or where there is a lot of dust/sand/debris build up. I can easily push 2" of dirt with it, it doesn't spin that fast but it has a lot of torque, we also carry manual brooms and metal bristle brooms that can pretty much remove anything stuck to the asphalt.

Ya it's a second tank custom built, carries the same amount as the one on the right, main purpose was to balance the weight between the axles. I have roughly 900 liters of sealer with the 2 tanks. The hose that you see in the middle is use to transfer them, open the valve and the gravity does the rest.

In Canada we only need a TDG license (Transportation of Dangerous Goods) for the driver. You also need to have the MSDS sheet of the sealer in the truck at all times. The flammable stickers need to be there once you reach X amount of gallons, and since I have 2 tanks I need it. If you get caught and you don't have any of these, you have to pay a fine which is almost 10k If I'm right.
