The Apex 47 Rider Sweeper is designed for heavy-duty industrial use. It is constructed on a steel frame and the panels, made of synthetic material, are virtually indestructible. With a 90-90 turning radius, the Apex 47 is extremely maneuverable as a result of the directly steered front wheel drive. It is easy to operate even in the narrowest of aisles. The Apex 47 provides perfect sweeping results due to the large, newly developed main broom with compensation for wear and tear. This rider sweeper is battery operated, a with a choice of hydraulic high- dump or manual low-dump hopper. The engine and battery compartments are clearly laid out and directly accessible for maintenance and servicing purposes. The seat console simply tilts backward to reveal these compartments. The seat is also equipped with a safety shut-off switch, if the operator gets up from the seat, the machine will shut down.
