thanx for the link! However, I can imagine some types of debri encountered , that would even foil that. You know, like entire fenders. Or a pallet, christmas tree, etc.... Seems to me that the best method is a bucket loader or skiploader to just drop his bucket, and whiz along the edge there. Granted, if he accumulated more than a few items, he'd have to stop, and off load it into a truck.

Hi Tom,
Yes, there are certainly going to be the occasional large debris items that would require supplemental collection. In documented FOT assessments, the ROAD RAKE collects 94% of debris that currently requires handpicking on major roadways. Handpicking is time-consuming and potentially dangerous to employees. The ROAD RAKE works more quickly, is towed at highway speeds for fast transport and requires a single operator. The operator is protected in the cab of the towing unit. The ROAD RAKE is often deployed as an integral part of a "sweeper train". The speed of the ROAD RAKE allows for more miles to be cleaned each day with less manpower - not to mention less dumping due to its 4 cu yd hopper.
Best,
Veronica
