    Does anybody run the walker sweeper attachment and what has been your experience with it?

    the largest company in Indpls uses them on the hospital sidwewalks as they have to have clean pavement all winter--works real good on 2 7 3" average stuff.Another crews uses them on lawns in the spring to get them "stood up" and left all the small dead stuff and leaf--again--works good. Raises too much dust to use inside buildings like warehouses. PRICEY!

    Do the Walker sweepers work well for cleaning up sand from snow bank piles? The implement hitch can make the broom go up and down right? How much do they go for new? Anybody selling one in the Southern Maine area?

    I doubt it would help you much! Find some way to get it piled (little wonder high output) then suck it up.

    I think a blower like that would make an awful mess and what are you going to suck it up with? Im talking about huge piles of snow from this winter that are going to melt and leave big piles of sand.

    Anyone know anything about that Walker sweeper/vacuum prototype, made for cleaning parking lots? It was introduced around 2002 from Hungary.
