What style of magnetic sweeper works best for cleaning construction sites?
A. It all depends on the size of the job. For large residential or commercial construction projects, we recommend any number of our bumper/suspension mounted units like the Type ALT, A.R. Auto Release or our All Terrain Load Release sweeper magnet.
Other professionals like roofers and construction contractors prefer handheld magnets for these smaller jobs. These options include our MSM Multi-Surface Magnetic Broom and our Magnetic Nail Sweep. These units can be easily stored behind the seat in a pickup cab and retrieved when it’s cleanup time. The MSM is available with a rake attachment which helps with loosening metal debris from grass or gravel so no metal debris is left behind when you are done with your job.
Finally, our 3-in-1 Tow Behind Magnet serves as the best of both worlds. This magnet can be bumper-mounted, towed or used as a push broom. This product comes in widths up to 84 inches wide, so it is often preferred at large job sites.
