Hi All

Post by aucklandsweepers » Tue Oct 31, 2006 11:32 am

Hi my name is Wend, I am from Auckland New Zealand. I have owned a successful striping company for nine years and it took that long to realize that every customer I have, has a parking lot that will need a sweep at some point!
So I have decided to offer this service. I am extremely new to this having been in the sweeping game for 2 weeks I realise I have an extreme amount to learn but I am quite excited about it all.
Thanks All

Hiya Dwan! :lol: Dwan and myself are friends and we have known each other for about 5years now from the striper forum.


Hiya Karl Thank you for the offer, I have a tennant 6500 to get me started.

I have noticed though there seems to be quite a bit of dust bellowing out from the back is that normal?

what I will do is read up on here as much as I can... I have a million and one questions but I am sure most of them will be answered here with the more I read. !!

Ok just one more question :lol: is it better to sweep a parking lot by going around and around until you get to the middle or is it better to go up and down in rows?
cheers all

Wend; You may have a hole in one of the filters or one of them could have just come loose.
Large lots I go round and round but in smaller ones I go back and forth. Not sure if your machine picks up as well going backwards though.
