The Vehicle maintenance division plays a critical part in DPWs street sweeping operations. Sweepers are used daily and have many complex moving parts and systems that require constant attention. From the vacuum systems, sweeper brooms, auxiliary hydraulics, and dust control to the complex electrical system that controls and monitors, the vehicle maintenance staff have their hands full with these machines. Here you see Garage tech Jay Arieta replacing one of the sweeper brooms on our small Ravo street sweeper. The sweeper brooms are an item that requires frequent replacement as it is considered to be a high wear item from frequent use.
