    Nice.

    I'm guessing you got a lot of sidewalks to clear down there.

    enough. this unit replaces the 20 year gehl we just sold... the rotary brooms are great with the light snow we get. and the grapple bucked is nice for loading debris into dumspters

    this will be my first pickup broom. I have been hammering for a dedicated sweeper/vac unit for years http://www.madvac.com/content/cn100_parking_lot_sweeper.php but I can't ever get enough $$$ or support to buy one. so I am hoping this will fill a niche for curb cleaning, ect and maybe show the powers that be, a compact sweeper would be a good idea...

    have much time on it....It feels real similar to the series 2 I have...Can you flip your wheels to make it narrower? I know i was able to do it on the series 2 I haven't been able to mess with the 320 yet to see...I like the narrow stance so I can swueez between bollards and such so I can move around campus...
