Working with a grinding machine takes not only specialized machines at times but a working knowledge of the process and flow of the job. We have two High Dump sweepers that are designed to dump the hopper load into a dump truck or other container up to 12’ high. This saves a grinding crew valuable time and eliminates the need to dump off site and/or “touch” the material multiple times. Our Mechanical Sweeper, which is set up specifically for sweeping up grindings, along with our highly experienced “grinding job” operators ensure that the paving prep can come in right behind the grinding task with minimal delay.
Prep for laying the pavement requires a specific setup of the sweeper to optimize performance (get the job done quickly), but just as important is the operator’s knowledge of the flow of a paving project. An experienced sweeper operator can anticipate the needs of the job while staying out of the way of the paving crew. These jobs are frequently done on roads and high volume intersections that must remain open to traffic. Our operators work with the traffic control personnel to ensure the job gets done, while keeping safety as their paramount concern. We have been the sweeper service provider for many of the large paving projects in the GVRD, including the 2010 Olympics Sea to Sky Highway upgrade, the entire South Fraser Perimeter Road project, Pitt River Bridge and the Port Mann Highway 1 project, to name a few.
