The best dice washing machines – hand sweepers
Stiga Stiga manual sweepers such as the SRP 355, SRP 475 Oira SRP 577 are available to you.
The manual sweepers are equipped with a brainless drive. They don’t make any noise or smoke, require virtually no maintenance, and are simple and non-irritating to use.
The disc brushes with which Stiga’s triggered machines are very durable and can be installed. In three (SWP 355) or eight positions (SWP 475 and SWP 577). They are designed for dual dirt collection: coarse dirt is collected by brushes which rotate in opposite directions, and fine dirt is collected by a roller. This allows you to clean surfaces in hard-to-reach places within reach, for example.
The design of the handles on stiga washing machines makes them very easy to use. For the SWP 355 and SWP 577 models, you can also fit a handlebar.
Design also plays a big part in ergonomics. The stiga has big rubber wheels with a special profile, so you can steer well over uneven ground.
The needs of your garden
Do you have a narrow path? The working widths of the manual sweepers are between 55 and 77 cm. Choose the perfect device for you! Sweepers are suitable for cleaning small areas such as patios or yards, and larger areas such as storage rooms or concrete surfaces.
You don’t have to worry about emptying the bin frequently – the garbage can has a capacity of 20 to 50 liters.
And when you’ve finished working? Simply move the unit to the garage or to the scale. You can also hang the curved machine on a hanger and keep it upright.
The best gasoline-powered machines
You will also find gasoline-powered recording machines in our offerings, viz: SVS 600 G, SVS 800 g i SWS 800 GE substantial and experienced groups. The devices are adapted to the needs of beginners and more advanced gardeners.
The sweepers are reliable machines that are equipped with modern 4.4 kW four-stroke internal combustion engines. In addition, thanks to the electric start function, you can easily start the engine regardless of the outside temperature, which is extremely practical, especially in winter.
The internal combustion engine models have been equipped with 34.5 cm wide brushes which are ideal for removing dirt such as sand, leaves and grass from all hard surfaces. The sweeping angle can be set in either direction up to 15°. Interestingly, the brushes work just as well on thin snow, and when white fluff appears, you can use the accessories to turn your sweeper into a snow blower!
On gasoline-powered machines with a return mechanism, you’ll find a super-comfortable handle with a soft grip for easy use and starting.
All controls are positioned to provide maximum comfort for the user. The sweeper has 6 forward and 2 reverse gears – you can switch them with a practical lever. The device itself is also intuitive. The wheels also make a big difference. Stiga return machines are equipped with rugged 14-inch SNOW-HOG tires that provide maximum traction, even in cold weather.
The needs of your garden
Narrow path or large area? Gasoline aerators prove their worth in any situation. The working width of the devices of these groups ranges from 60 to 80 cm.
Factory-made gasoline return machines are not equipped with waste containers. However, for the SVS 600 g you can buy 60 or 80 cm tanks.
It is best to store the sweeper in a dry, cool place, covered with a lid. If it is not used for an extended period of time, make sure there is no fuel in the tank.
Storage – Comparison
Handheld sweepers have sweeping capacities ranging from 1 m²/h to 600 m²/h. Like gasoline-powered machines, these models offer a capacity of 3-000 M7000/h. Despite these differences, both devices are ideal for cleaning up homesteads, and the choice depends on preference and needs.

First and foremost, you need to look at sweeping performance, motor power and ergonomics. The device should meet your needs and provide a comfortable, stress-free experience.

Choosing a universal return machine: varieties, selection criteria, review of popular models
Cleaning garbage in parks, near country houses, stores, stores, pavilions can take a lot of time if it is done manually. Modern devices are mobile, lightweight and maneuverable enough to clean dirt and snow from large and medium construction sites.
Designers have tested and developed handy sweepers with powerful motors, round brushes, which increase the productivity of cleaning by 5-6 times compared to the manual way.
Such machines are used not only for sweeping on homogeneous areas – asphalt or concrete, but also on ordinary soil. The right choice of equipment depends on several factors: the required productivity, the size of the area, the frequency of use.
There are a total of three groups of sages:
- Manual – Uses the operator’s muscle power to operate. Often used for cleaning small areas.
- Battery-powered – Productive equipment with an electric motor that is powered by a built-in battery.
- Gasoline, diesel – the most powerful units with an internal combustion engine are suitable for the enemy of large areas. Are able to work for a long time.
In addition, sweepers differ in the type of installed brushes. They can be on the side and rotate along a vertical axis. Garbage falls into the middle of the body and then falls into the tanks or pockets. After filling, the operator must destroy the container.
When “backward” mode is turned on, the brushes rotate in the opposite direction. This allows the snow to be removed, which tilts to the sides in the direction of the machine’s travel. Such machines are considered versatile, but more difficult to maintain mechanisms because of the device. In the model, the rotary brushes rotate along horizontal axes.
The main criteria are taken into account:
- Performance – for cleaning small areas do not require high performance and complex devices. It is enough to choose a small and lightweight machine.
- Type of coating – if the surface is uneven, it is better to buy a pipe with a vertical arrangement of working waves. It is better to clean the surface from debris and snow, as well as from fallen leaves.
- The duration of the usual process is to sweep with professional machines with a gasoline or diesel engine throughout the working day. You will easily finish with the amount of work, do not overheat, do not require charging the battery.
You should also pay attention to the hardness of the Bristürbrüsten bristles: Soft ones are designed for even floors. Outdoors, they wear out quickly and need to be replaced. Too hard can damage decorative horizontal surfaces (e.g. tiles), but when cleaning asphalt or unpaved paths, they are indispensable.
Before you buy, pay attention to the following details:
- What buyers write about a particular model, for how long they have used it.
- The weight and dimensions of the device.
- The length of the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Capacity of garbage bags or containers.
- Speed of delivery – which spare parts come with the machine.
- Availability of service where consumables and replacement parts can be purchased.
Some devices provide the position of the brushes. This is practical for various jobs, especially on uneven surfaces.
For example, professional mops can be equipped with additional attachment equipment with a hollow blade. Pay attention to such moments as the possibility of folding the elements of the machine for storage in small utility rooms, as well as the function of setting handles in height for the convenience of operators.
It is worth noting that the most popular are the sweepers produced by large manufacturers: Karcher, Nilfisk, Tielburger, Lavorpro. These companies have a wide range of devices, developed service in the regions, good customer support, and whistles are more reliable in operation.

Electric and manual charts do not require much maintenance. It is important to adhere to the manufacturer’s recommendations, keep the units clean, timely release the waste containers and charge the batteries.
Units with internal combustion engines are more complex and require special maintenance. It is important to timely preventive maintenance of the engine, monitor the oil level and refuel only with high-quality gasoline. Repair and maintenance of such machines require the intervention of craftsmen and is not carried out independently.
The choice of power tiller depends on the type of coverage and area of the territory, the intensity of future operation and the need to clean the outside. Professional equipment costs more. Its purchase is not reasonable for small works. It is important to pay attention to the dimensions of the super, since the storage of large devices requires the allocation of a separate room.
