Have you ever driven down a highway and been blinded by snow coming off the top of a truck? Bluff Manufacturing has developed its patented DuraSweeper® to take snow and debris off the top of a vehicle roof before it gets on the road; and it does it without damaging the trailer. It was conceptualized by a retired police officer who saw firsthand the results of a fatal traffic accident caused by snow flying off the roof of a truck.
The DuraSweeper’s ® 32″ bristles provide a soft touch on the roof top while completely removing the snow. Its unique state-of-the-art technology allows for the removal of snow or other debris with a brush system that also adjusts automatically with different roof heights, but never scrapes the roof. The unit can be permanently installed, but a portable unit is also available to allow for seasonal, out-of-the-way storage.
The Bluff DuraSweeper® is welded and bolted steel construction for the optimum combination of strength and versatility. Heavy steel beams are designed to hold up against the heaviest winds and the deepest snow. We then galvanize the unit to assure long life. Finally, our customized electrical panel provides the power you need and ease-of-use to minimize the need for training and maintenance.
The DuraSweeper® utilizes a thirty-two inch poly wafer brush that is mounted on an axle to two uprights and angled for more effective snow removal. These brush wafers can be replaced as needed so that your DuraSweeper® unit stays as effective as the day you received it.
The brush is raised automatically and electrically to a height just inches above the rooftop so that as the vehicle passes under the spinning brush, the DuraSweeper®’s patented flicking action removes snow quickly and easily. The brush blows the snow away from the truck lane at an angle so that easy access to the lane is maintained. There is no need to use a hard blade to scrape across the roof of the vehicle (which can cause damage) to remove the snow and the driving lane stays clear of snow removed from the truck top.
Bluff has researched the models on the market and built a better product that can be used on a variety of vehicles including, buses, box vans, trailers and frac tanks. The soft brush gently conforms to most contours without harming the roof itself.
The Bluff DuraSweeper is a 20HP portable unit. The DS-D20 is able to be moved around your yard during non-use periods.
