Construction Sites
Tow behind magnetic sweepers are ideal for covering large areas and attach by simply hooking up to the ball hitch of a truck. For smaller areas, the “3 in 1” magnet can be used as a push-style magnetic sweeper that can be easily rolled around your job site to pick-up nails and other metal debris.  The “3-in-1” can also be mounted to vehicle bumpers and provide more protection from damaging metal while vehicles drive around a construction site.

Airports and Runways
Towable magnets are the most widely chosen magnets at terminal areas, flight lines, tarmacs, and runways. These magnets have been proven to reduce FOD incidents by the U.S. Military. Additionally, they are perfect for removing even the smallest pieces of metal from unreachable areas, such as concrete grooves,  helping organizations save money on costly engine damage, ground equipment repairs and possible injury to personnel.

Equine Facilities
Horse arenas, tracks and fairgrounds are consistently littered with nails, wire mesh, fencing residual and small, sharp metal which is very difficult to remove using conventional methods. The 3-in-1 magnetic sweeper is ideal for removing and clearing high traffic areas quickly and effectively.
