The latest push/pull tractor-mounted brush from Newcastle upon Tyne company Brushtec attaches in just 30 seconds and is said to be equally happy working indoors or outdoors.
The edges of the brush are made of non-marking HDPE, allowing it to get close to walls without fear of scuffing them.

The galvanised steel frame on the Sweepertec model is said to cope with any farming environment and won’t corrode even in slurry. Heavy-duty 2.2mm bristles allow users to clear debris ranging from snow to slurry to grain
Two sizes are available – 1.2m and 2m – on a heavy-duty welded steel chassis and the unit accepts forks up to 145mm wide. It can be used outside to clear slurry, grit, grain, straw, mud, light snow and for general farm cleaning.
It’s also 100% British made, says the company, with recycled polypropylene from Sunderland, steel wire rod from Corus/Tata in Wales and polypropylene bristles from polymers from the Grangemouth refinery.
The 2m Sweepertec costs £735 and the 1.2m model costs £508.
