path sweeping machine hire

Morning guys, 

I need to hire a sweeping machine,next week, to remove moss on tarmac pathways on a residential site I maintain,

I have tried all the major and small tool hire places and no one can help me out ( apart from hss but not got an account for them!)

I like the kersten path sweepers, does anyone have one I could hire from them or point me in the right direction? Im just outside cambridge and don't mid travelling to pick up, can also sort out a deposit!

Doesn't have to be a kersten machine 

thanks in advance

    Try Paul @ County Hire Tool. They hire them out and we've used them for various items - only problem maybe location Tadley (nr Reading, Berks)? They also deliver and finally they are LJN members.

    If still stuck, I know of another possibility or two but location would still be 'west' of London.

    Good luck...

      Hi Gary,

      I didn't see Colin's enquiry for power broom until today; need to keep my eyes open a bit wider!

      also only just noticed that you replied to hime suggesting he contacts our hire company, County Hire. Much appreciated.

      all the best for 2017

    You could just use hss couldn't you as you don't need an account. I've hired stuff from them without an account

    Try Ben Burgess in Coates (PE7) - they have a load of groundscare stuff - hired a chipper from them years ago:  HERE

    Another alternative to the proper sweepers might be the powered brush attachment for the Stihl Combi...? Bit more work sweeping up but very effective?

    • I have the kombi sweeping brush and it's not great. There are more effective machines out there and the vibes are fairly high....

      The trolley kombi might be a better idea

        for large areas - yes its hard work, but I find its really effective on mossy, gungy tennis courts and I have even used it for snow clearance off paths...used once or twice a year perhaps but excellent

        Dunno how true it is but my Stihl dealer told me the Kombi trolley kit was going to be discontinued. Pity ' cos it looked a good bit of kit.

          It's only recently been re-continued after being discontinued last time!

    Hi Colin,

    Apologies for the delay in replying. The TurfTeq power broom  http://www.groundscare-products.co.uk/pb.htm  is available to rent from Brandon Hire in Chelmsford. Their phone number is 01245 358444.

    I doubt they will be open until Tues 3rd Jan, in which case you are welcome to call me in the meanwhile if you have any questions about the machine.
