Last year we purchased a Ravo sweeper and now have over 500 hrs on this machine and it has had no mechanical problems at a!L. Before buying this machine we tested four other sweepers, Elgin, Johnston, Tymco, and Dulevo. We threw all kinds of debris in front of this machine to test its capabilities. Leaves, crushed concrete and small rocks were picked up with no problem. Basically it picked everything up we put in front of it_ We have 26 miles of roads in our village with small narrow streets which this machine is perfect for because of its tight turning radius. Our previous sweeper could not go down some of these roads because of its height. The service department has been excellent and they have had all parts to the sweeper in stock. We also have the vacuum attachment which works great because now we can super suck all of our smaller catch basins at our leisure because previously we would have to borrow a super sucker from another township_ I would recommend the Ravo Sweeper to any Municipal DPW or Government agency.
Please call me if you have any questions.
