Scarab's Top Tips for Tackling Leafing Season

Autumn brings with it one of the most challenging periods for sweeper operators - ensuring roads, gulleys and pathways are clear of wet, slippery leaves to ensure people can safely enjoy the environment. Scarab’s range of truck-mounted road sweeping vehicles are designed to tackle challenging cleansing tasks in varying weather conditions and for this reason, are the optimal solution for leaf collection in the autumnal months.

Coupling this with the robust and varied sweep configuration available with every machine, our sweepers are equipped with the tools needed to clear leaves even in the hardest-to-reach areas.
