What is a Magnet Broom and Do I Need One?
What on Earth is a Magnet Broom? It is essentially the swiss-army knife of construction clean-up. It is a magnet, brush, and vacuum all in one easy device. Whether it’s for concrete grinding or simple dust vacuuming on your new concrete floor, a magnet broom can easily save a lot of time. Here at BW, we offer two very versatile types of Magnet Brooms:
Electronic Magnet Broom
Our Electronic Magnet Broom comes as an attachment to the SCB-1200 Chassis for shot blast concrete clean up. This device is both a rapid and easy tool for cleaning various floors, driveways, warehouses, and other types of surfaces. The vacuum portion of the BR-25 takes in any rubble and remains while the magnet portion takes in any hard metal materials that normally ding up the inside of vacuums. The BR-25 operates as an automatic sweeper for any left over debris so you don’t have to worry about that extra hour of manual cleaning.

Analog Magnet Broom
As much as we’d all love a large, automatic Magnet Broom, there are always those little hard to reach spots of debris that are too specific for the BR-25. One device needed for any occasion is the M-30 Magnetic Sweeper. This 30” Magnetic Sweeper is an easy, portable device for any shot blaster equipment clean up.
The M-30 carries 10” rubber wheels mounted in the back to move with quick and accessible maneuverability. It contains a ceramic magnet so large that it extends the pick-up area beyond the sweeper’s reach. There is also a release level mounted at the handle for ideal control.
Whichever device best suites your needs, a Magnet Broom is definitely a wonderful addition to your shot blasting needs.Back To Blog
