A broom attachment can be used on several different pieces of heavy equipment, such as compact wheel loaders, excavators, skid steers, and even tractors. Designed to make cleanup fast and efficient, they can be employed to clear debris on jobsites, assist in road maintenance, remove snow, clear bridges, clean parking lots or perform other tasks. The brush head can be made from wire or other materials, be angled for better performance and include water jets for deeper cleaning (1).

Frequently Asked Questions
Does an Equipment with a Broom Attachment Count as an Oversized Load?
The vehicles usually have a broom attachment: agricultural tractors, skid-steers, and occasionally, a front-end loader. But you don’t need to worry because none fall in the large category.
The broom attachment alone isn't heavy enough to have a significant impact since, at most, it weighs 1200 pounds and is 72 to 84 inches (around 7 feet) long.
On the other hand, an agricultural tractor weighs 5000 to 6000 pounds, and a skid-steer weighs approximately 7500 pounds. Even the heaviest of the three options, the front-end loader, weighs only 15000 pounds.
Since the weight limit for normal loads is 46000 pounds, all three pieces of equipment are well below the limit, even with the attached broom.
How Will My Broom Attachment Be Transported Over Long Distances?
The preferred choice by experienced shipping companies is using a flatbed trailer because it allows them to navigate the loading however they prefer. A flatbed is conveniently shaped with no boundaries or bumps, so an agricultural tractor and skid-steer can be easily transported with the attachment.
While small front-end loaders are transported on flatbeds, there are two more popular options for heavier ones because they're heavier than the other two pieces of equipment. An RGN or step-deck trailer is utilized for them.
The reason is that the RGN trailer has a removable gooseneck that creates its own ramp, while the step-deck trailer has a ramp and two levels. Both are more convenient because personnel can focus on balance and positioning during loading instead of all the attention being on the ramp.
Is it Possible to Transport a Broom Attachment On its Own?
Technically, yes, but you won’t need to hire a shipping company specializing in vehicles and heavy equipment if you’re transporting the broom attachment alone. You can pack it carefully using bubble sheets and a box to mail it as standard cargo. It’s even easier if it’s relatively new and you still have the original packaging.
But it's best to have it transported attached to your preferred vehicle just as you use it. For one, it doesn't have much effect on the delivery, so if you're transporting your agricultural tractor or other equipment, you'd need it anyway.
How Long Will it Take For My Broom Attachment to Reach its Destination?
The answer largely depends on where you're having it transported. Broom attachments are commonly used equipment required anywhere from cities to farms.
Your pickup and destination significantly affect both the time and price of the delivery because the farther out either is, the more fuel and time the driver needs for your order.
The shipping route also has a significant impact because the shipping company must figure out the optimal path to ensure no wasted time. It depends on where warehouses are for drivers to pick up deliveries.
Paying for expedited shipping means the company adjusts someone else’s order to speed up yours.
