Magnets for Trucking & Transportation

Magnetic Sweepers are used extensively in trucking/warehouse distribution.


Magnetic sweepers are mounted on “switchers” or “yard jockeys”.  These are the service vehicles which routinely move tractor trailers around the terminal area, from dock-dock and from cab-cab.  Magnetic Sweepers are mounted underneath the vehicle and routinely pick up the dangerous steel trash from the loading dock area, terminal and thru-ways.
