Operator Instruction

One Day course aimed at sweeper operators / drivers, usually taking place at your own premises and with your own equipment.

Whilst it may appear that sweeping is a simple operation, in truth the modern road-sweeper is a complex mix of hydraulics, electronics and mechanical components requiring guidance in order that your operators get the best out of their machines. Generally, the duration of the instruction course is six to eight hours, where approximately four hours is required for the introduction of the machine. Thereafter the time may vary, depending on the ability of the candidate, where he or she has to acquire ‘hands on’ experience.

Operator Instruction Courses are arranged on request and a Certificate of Attendance for the Scarab Sweeping Course will be issued to each candidate.
