The City Council of Benahadux has replaced recently its old suction sweeper for a new dragging sweeper Piquersa BA-2300H.

After more than 10 years cleaning the town streets with a suction sweeper, this last summer the council decided it was time to retire this machine and change to a new sweeper which is better suited to the new reality of the municipality.

Piquersa BA2300 - BenahaduxThe Council Technical Staff discussed the different options available in the market, and they decided that the BA-2300H sweeper could meet all their needs and incorporate important advantages.

After several demonstrations with different models of sweepers, it was confirmed that the BA-2300H drag sweeper provided the same sweeping quality as  other more expensive suction models; even in certain urban waste its performance is higher, so the Piquersa sweeper can cover a greater variety of waste.

Likewise, Antonio Gomez (Services Area Councillor) underlined the simplicity and maintenance low cost of this model by incorporating a very low level of electronics components compared to the sophisticated systems in the suction sweepers. Of course this advantage will result in a higher saving from the short term. He also stressed that the fuel consumption and particulate and noise emissions will be lower, so it is not required a more powerful engine.

The two cubic meters of capacity of the BA-2300H sweeper and its technical features and improvements compared to suction sweepers, confirm the conclusion that the drag sweeping of Piquersa was the best option for the Council.

The new BA-2300H is already working and at full performance in Benahadux.
