SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
BRADCO BROOMS
TO THE OPERATOR
The primary responsibility for safety with the equipment falls to the operator. It is
the skill, care, common sense, and good judgment of the operator that will determine how efficiently and safely the job is performed. Know the equipment before you
start. Know the capabilities, dimensions, and how to operate all the controls. Visually inspect the equipment before you start, and never operate equipment that is not
in proper working order with all safety devices in place and operating.
BEFORE YOU START
Wear the right clothing and gear for the job. Protective equipment such as
hard hat, steel-toed shoes, leather gloves, respirator or safety glasses may be in
order. They can protect you from needless injury. Be sure to meet the requirements
for the specific job site. Do not wear loose clothing or things such as rings and
watches around the equipment. They could get caught in moving parts and lead to
serious injury or death.
Know your equipment. Know how to operate all controls and know emergency shutdown procedures. Make sure all safety devices are in place.
Inspect the equipment. Check for missing shields, loose bolts, twisted
or damaged hydraulic hoses. Be sure all operational decals are in place and
legible. Never operate a damaged or unsafe machine. Remember, you are responsible for your safety and the safety of those around you.
Keep all step plates, grab bars, pedals, and controls free of dirt, grease,
oil, and water. Keep clear of tools, rags, and extra parts. Keep equipment clean to
help avoid injury from a fall when getting on or off equipment.
OPERATING PRECAUTIONS
Know your work area before you begin. Observe any potential hazard
areas such as soft ground, drop-offs, rocks, and other obstacles.
Know where all utility lines are. Observe overhead electrical and phone
lines. Be sure equipment will safely clear them.
Be alert to others in the work area. Be sure others know when and where
you will be working. Make sure no one is underneath or behind equipment.
Never try to board equipment while it's moving.
Do not stand in front of the equipment when it is operating.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
BRADCO BROOMS
Always use the seat belt and safety ROPS that are on the equipment.
Never allow riders or passengers on the equipment unless the equipment
is designed for passengers.
Test all controls before starting operation. This includes safety equipment
and devices.
Be aware of what is going on around you. Watch for others who may not
be watching out for themselves.
MAINTENANCE PRECAUTIONS
Replace all safety shields and guards when finished performing maintenance. Do not operate the broom with protective equipment removed.
Never perform maintenance or adjustments while the broom is operating. Turn off the engine when performing maintenance to prevent accidental movement.
Make sure all operating and residual pressures are relieved before
working on a hydraulic system. Shut engine off and operate all the controls to
relieve any pressure.
Use only manufacturer recommended replacement parts. Other parts
may be substandard in fit and quality.
Do not set relief valve pressures higher than recommended by the
manufacturer. Relief valves should be checked and adjusted only by a trained
service technician. Do not remove or block a relief valve.
Observe proper maintenance schedules. Proper maintenance can help
prevent a hazardous condition.
Always wear safety goggles or glasses when working on equipment.
Never use your hands to search for hydraulic fluid leaks. Use cardboard
or paper to indicate the presence of a leak. High pressure hydraulic fluid leaks can
be invisible, and may cause an infection or toxic reaction if skin is penetrated. Seek
medical attention immediately if hydraulic fluid is injected into skin.
Always clean the ends of the hydraulic lines before attaching them to
the loader. This reduces the amount of contamination in hydraulic components.
Cover and protect the ends when the broom is disconnected and not being used.

MOUNTING & INSTALLATION
BRADCO ANGLE BROOMS
ATTACHING THE UNIT
The BRADCO® angle brooms come in three different lengths. The lift
capacity of the skid-steer or prime mover must be at least 1300 lbs. (590 kg).
The angle broom comes with a universal adapter plate capable of attaching
the broom to most common skid loaders.
1.
Remove the bucket from the skid-steer and attach the angle broom to the
prime mover's quick attach, and lock in place.
2.
Connect the hydraulic hoses to the auxiliary hydraulic couplers on the prime
mover.
3.
Remove the snap pins on the support stands, flip the stands over, and
reinstall in the same location.
4.
Make adjustments to the broom. See the Adjustments Section F.
If the angle broom does not fit the loader arms, contact your skid-steer dealer
for optional adapter plates to convert the machine to a more common adapter plate
configuration. Refer to the skid-steer loader operator’s manual for proper mounting
and safe operation of attachments.
DANGER:
Never operate an implement which is not securely attached to
the skid-steer loader.
The skid-steer loader is required to have auxiliary hydraulics that are capable
of 14-20 gpm. The hydraulic pressure must be capable of 2000-2800 psi. Verify that
the skid-steer is capable of hydraulic motor operation at these levels.

ADJUSTMENTS
BRADCO ANGLE BROOMS
GENERAL INFORMATION
A properly adjusted broom will offer the best sweeping performance.
A.
B.
C.
D.
E.
F.
Keeping the broom LEVEL is recommended at all times, but is critical when
sweeping at an angle to avoid uneven wear of the wafers.
Adjusting the BRUSH PATTERN so only 3” - 4” of brush touches the ground
offers the best sweeping performance, without premature wearing of the
wafers.
Proper adjustment of the TENSION SPRINGS will allow the brush to “float”
over obstacles, without changing the position of the loader arms.
Proper adjustment of the TRANSPORT CHAIN will allow the tension springs
to carry the weight of the broom during sweeping, and eliminate some of the
bouncing motion of the broom. The transport chain when properly adjusted
during transporting will lengthen the life of the tension springs.
ANGLING the sweeper to the left or right will assist in directing the debris and
also in windrowing the debris.
SIDE-SHIFTING the broom is used to keep the sweep pattern in line with the
prime mover wheels when angled and in the event that the prime mover is
wider than the boom, the boom can be side-shifted to sweep along a curb or
wall.
LEVELING THE SWEEPER
PIVOT PIN
Keeping the sweeper level is recommended
PERPENDICULAR
at all times, but is critical when sweeping at an angle
TO GROUND
to avoid uneven and premature wear of the wafers.
After properly adjusting the broom for the
best sweeping performance, the loader arms need
to be adjusted so the pivot pin, connecting the hitch
frame and the broom, is perpendicular to the
ground. If this cannot be obtained by simply lifting
the loader arms then they will need to be rolled out
or in.
The tension springs may need to be readjusted after leveling is completed.
ADJUSTING THE SWEEPER BRUSH
A properly adjusted brush offers the best sweeping performance.
To adjust the brush pattern:
1.
Move the sweeper to a dusty, flat surface.
2.
Set the prime mover brake; leave the engine running.
3.
Start the sweeper at a slow speed; then lower it so the bristle tips touch the
ground.

8.
Run the sweeper in a stationary position for 10
seconds.
Raise the sweeper, and back away.
Switch off the prime mover engine, and remove
the key.
Check the brush pattern left in the dust. The
swept area should be 3"- 4" wide, running the
full length of the brush.
If the brush pattern is not 3"- 4" wide, the brush SWEPT AREA
height needs to be adjusted as necessary
3" - 4"
according to the instructions in “Adjusting
Tension Springs” & “Adjusting Transport Chain”.
ADJUSTING THE TENSION SPRINGS
The BRADCO® angle brooms are equipped with two tension springs that
when adjusted correctly will allow the broom to float over obstacles without changing
the position of the loader arms.
NOTE: Applying a small amount of down-force with the prime mover loader
arms will assist in disconnecting the transport chain and tension springs to
readjust. Do not allow the broom to stay in this position for long periods of
time, or the bristles may become deformed.
1.

3.
Adjust the transport chain for sweeping. See Adjusting Transport Chain.
Applying down-force with the prime mover until the broom rotates back.
There will be slack in the transport chain.

Lift the broom off of the ground, and check the slack in the transport chain. If
the springs have expanded to the point that the chain is pulled tight, lower the
broom and apply down-force until the springs can be moved up one link on
the transport chain.
Repeat step #4 until the tension springs carry the weight of the broom
instead of the transport chain. This will allow the broom to float over obstacles while sweeping and reduce shock to the prime mover.
ADJUSTING TRANSPORT CHAIN
The BRADCO® angle brooms are equipped with a transport chain to carry
the broom during transport between work sites, taking the weight off of the tension
springs and eliminating the bouncing motion of the broom.
For Transporting:
1.
2.
Apply a small amount of downforce with the prime mover loader
arms until the broom rotates back
against the rubber bumper.
Tighten the transport chain in the
chain holder on the hitch frame.
TRANSPORT CHAIN (PULLED TIGHT)
TENSION SPRINGS
(WITHOUT TENSION)
NOTE: Adjusting the chain to take the
weight off of the tension springs during
transporting will eliminate unnecessary wear of the springs and also a lot of the
shock to the prime mover.
For Sweeping:
1.
Apply a small amount of down-force with the prime mover loader arms until
the transport chain can be disconnected from the chain holder in the hitch
frame.
2.
Adjust the chain and tension springs, as described in “Adjusting the Tension
Springs”.
MANUAL ANGLE ADJUSTMENT
The BRADCO® angle broom has three angle positions which can be set by
the operator; straight forward and 30° to the left or right, for windrowing the debris.
(Due to the location of the pivot point, the broom will also need to be shifted either
left or right if you wish to maintain the sweep pattern and keep it in line with the
prime mover wheels.)

The BRADCO® angle broom has an optional hydraulic angle kit available.
See Section “I” for the “Hydraulic Angle Kit” parts, installation, adjustment and operation.
SIDE-SHIFT ADJUSTMENT
The BRADCO® angle broom can be side-shifted either left or right, up to 10”
off center. This will maintain the sweep pattern and keep it in line with the prime
mover wheels when the broom is angled, and also in the event that the prime mover
is wider than the broom it can be side-shifted to assist in sweeping along a curb or

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
OPERATING THE BROOM
The BRADCO® Angle Brooms use the prime mover hydraulic flow to operate. To start the brush, turn on the skid-steer's auxiliary hydraulics; to stop it, turn off
the hydraulic flow.
With this broom you sweep "Over" the brush while moving in a forward
direction. NOTE: Broom rotation should always be away from the operator.
CAUTION!
Only fully trained operators or trainee operators under the
close supervision of a fully trained person should use this
machine.
Check all hydraulic fittings for leaks and that they are properly
connected and routed. Check hardware for tightness.
Be sure all persons not operating the sweeper are clear of the
sweeper discharge area.
To increase or decrease brush speed, change the skid-steer's rpm. Use the
LOWEST speed that will complete the job. In general, half throttle provides plenty of
engine speed.
WARNING! Avoid serious injury. Check for objects that could harm the
operator or others if thrown by the sweeper. Remove these
items before sweeping.
Observe wind direction. Sweeping with the wind makes sweeping more
effective and helps keep debris off the operator.
Direct the debris by angling the brush head in that direction.
NOTE: The terms swing and angle are used interchangeably along with the terms
skid-steer and prime mover.
IMPORTANT: The tension springs allow the broom to follow ground contours and "float" over obstacles. Therefore, DO NOT run the sweeper with
the skid-steer in the "FLOAT" position. Using "FLOAT" allows the sweeper
to drop too low and lift too high resulting in poor sweeping and damage to
the unit.
IMPORTANT: Wire wafers will damage decorative or delicate surfaces such
as: tile, brick, fresh or sealed concrete, etc.
TO SWEEP
1.
Set the brush head assembly in the direction you want to direct the debris.
2.
Start the prime mover.
8618
3-13-02
G
G
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
3.
Engage the brush (with engine at low speed), and slowly lower it to the
ground.
4.
Increase engine rpms to required sweeping speed. Use the LOWEST
speed that will complete the job.
5.
Travel forward at 5 mph or less.
At the end of a run: slow engine and travel speeds, disengage the brush, and
raise the brush head off of the ground and make the turn.
Vary brush, engine and travel speeds to match sweeping conditions.
LARGE AREAS
When sweeping large areas, such as parking lots, make a path down the
middle and then sweep to both sides. This will reduce the amount of debris that the
brush must sweep in each consecutive pass and allow the sweeper to run in a
continuous pattern.
HEAVY DEBRIS
Travel slowly, less than 5 mph and sweep a path less than the width of the
sweeper. Increase engine speed slowly if debris becomes too heavy.
NOTE: A maximum brush speed in the low range and travel speed less than 5 mph
is recommended when sweeping heavy debris.
NOTE: For excessive amounts of accumulated debris it may be more effective to
use a dozer blade followed by the sweeper.
SNOW
To sweep snow effectively, a high brush speed and slow ground speed is
required. It is recommended to start at 3/4 throttle with the prime mover traveling
slowly. It may be necessary to increase the throttle speed for wet or deep snow
applications. This will also help to avoid snow buildup inside the broom hood.
NOTE: In deep snow you may need to make more than one pass to obtain a clean
surface.
OPERATING TIP: To keep snow from blowing back onto your swept area, it is
recommended you sweep with the wind to your back.
CAUTION!
Avoid equipment damage. Do not ram into piles of debris. Use
a dozer blade for this type of job with the sweeper for the final
clean-up.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
DIRT & GRAVEL
A low brush speed and moderate ground speed works best for cleaning
debris from hard surfaces. When sweeping gravel, use just enough brush speed to
"roll" the gravel, not throw it. Brush speeds that are too fast tend to raise dust.
OPERATING TIP: To keep dust to a minimum, it is recommended to plan your
sweeping for days when it is overcast and humid or after it has rained. It is also
recommended to sweep so the wind is at your back or in the direction the brush
head is angled.
THATCH
A low brush speed and low ground speed works best for thatching.
To prevent the brush from pulling itself into the ground, adjust the brush so the bristle
tips barely touch the grass.
If the brush does pull into the grass and stalls while sweeping use the prime
mover to lift the brush. Do not increase throttle speed to override a stall out.
OPERATING TIP: Use a combination of brush speed and ground speed to roll
thatch up into a neat windrow. To deter thatch from blowing back into the operator's
face or into a swept area, it is recommended to sweep so the wind is at your back
or in the direction the brush head is angled.

MAINTENANCE
BRADCO ANGLE BROOMS
GENERAL INFORMATION
Regular maintenance is the key to long equipment life and safe operation.
Maintenance requirements have been reduced to an absolute minimum. However, it
is very important that these maintenance functions be performed as described in
this section.
LUBRICATION
Lubrication is an important part of maintenance. It is recommended that all
grease fittings be lubricated after every 40 hours of use. There are only four (4)
grease fittings to be lubricated in the following locations:
•
•
•
Pivot tube on the broom mounting on the back of the cannister (2).
Pivot pin (#89819) connecting the hitch frame and cannister (1).
Bearing on the core located on the right side of the bucket (1).
REPLACING HYDRAULIC MOTOR
1.
Lower the sweeper to rest on the ground. Place supports under the frame of the
broom, if not supported by the skid-steer, to keep the core unit level.
WARNING! Avoid serious injury. Lower and stop the sweeper, set the
brake, stop the skid-steer engine, and remove the key before
leaving the operator's seat.
2.
Tag and disconnect the hydraulic tubes and fittings from the hydraulic motor. See
Figure #1
3.
Remove the four .50" X 1.75" capsrews securing the motor housing to the broom
and core. See Figure #1
4.
Slide out the motor housing
from the core and remove
the four .50" x 1.50" capscrews securing the motor
to the housing. See Figure
#1
FIGURE #1
5.

REPLACING HYDRAULIC MOTOR (CONTINUED)
8.
Reinstall the hydraulic tubes and fittings into the new motor.
9.
Slide the motor housing into the core of the brush, and secure in place using the
existing hardware removed in Step #3.
10.
Run the sweeper to verify that hose connection is correct.
REPLACING BRUSHES
As the brushes become worn, they need to be replaced. It is recommended that all
brushes are replaced at the same time.
Replacing only a section of brushes is acceptable for special sweeping applications,
where only part of the brush is being used consistently and the remainder of the brushes are in
"new" condition. NOTE: Always install a poly section on each end of the core, 1 first and 1
last. If installing a combination wafer kit, alternate between wire and poly brushes.
1.
Drive the sweeper to a location where an overhead hoist is available. Lower the
sweeper to rest on the ground. Place supports under the frame of the broom, if not
supported by the skid-steer.
WARNING! Avoid serious injury. Lower and stop the sweeper, set the brake,
stop the skid-steer engine, and remove the key before leaving the
operator's seat.
2.
Tag and disconnect the hydraulic hoses from the hydraulic motor.
3.
Remove the four .50" X 1.75" capscrews securing the motor housing to the broom
and core.
4.
Slide out the motor housing from the core of the brush. See Figure #1 in "Replacing
the Hydraulic Motor".
5.
Remove the lock collar from the bearing on the end of the core, and then remove the
bearing and flangette set.
6.
Raise the sweeper, leaving the brush on the ground, and back away.
7.
Remove the wafer end retainer.
8.
For quick and easy removal of the worn brushes: Using an overhead hoist, attach to
the motor end of the core and lift. The brushes (wafers) will fall off of the core.
9.
Set the core on end, with the motor end on the ground.
10.
For installation of the new brushes, number the tubes on the core as 1, 2, 3 and 4 with
#1 being the tube located at the motor housing opening. (See Figure #2) Due to the
housing on the motor end of the core the first four wafers will be install on tube #1.
NOTE: For clearance it is necessary to grind off 1/4" from the drive pins on the
first two wafers leaving 1/4". See Figure #3
11.
Slide the first brush section (wafer) onto the core with a drive pin on each side of tube
#1. Be sure the drive pins angle UP. See Figure #4
12.
Place the second brush section onto the core with a drive pin on each side of tube #1.
Be sure the drive pins are angled down.

16.
Continue sliding brush sections (wafers) on until the core is full, making sure to
alternate tubes (#1, #2, #3, and #4) AND the direction of the drive pins (up then
down).
NOTE: If the last section will take more space than remains but more than 1/2" of
the core needs to be filled, nest the last section on the previous section by
placing both drive pins on the same tube.
17.
When the core is full, reinstall the wafer end retainer, and using the overhead
hoist, gently lay the brush back onto the ground.
18.
Position the core into the broom cannister, and install the flangette set and locking
collar.
19.
Slide the motor housing into the core of the brush, and bolt into place. Align the

REMOVAL AND STORAGE
REMOVING THE BROOM
1.
Move the broom to a flat, level surface or storage area.
2.
Remove the safety snap pins from the support stands and turn the stands
around to support the broom, and reinstall the snap pins.
3.
Disconnect the hydraulic hoses from the skid-steer auxiliary hydraulics, and
connect the couplers together to prevent contaminates from entering the
hydraulic system.
4.
Unlock the sweeper from the skid-steer, and following the instructions in your
skid-steer operator's manual for removing attachments, remove the sweeper
from the skid-steer.
IMPORTANT:
Do not store the sweeper with weight on the brush. This will deform
the bristles, destroying their effectiveness. To avoid this problem, always
install the support stands before removing the sweeper.
Do not store the polypropylene brushes in direct sunlight. They will
deteriorate and crumble.
Keep polypropylene brush material away from intense heat or flame.
It will melt.
STORING THE BROOM
1.
Store the broom in a dry place.
2.
Apply a coat of grease to all exposed cylinder rods to prevent rusting.
3.
If the broom is bring stored outside, cover with a suitable weather cover. This
will keep moisture, dirt, and other airborne debris from getting into the system.
4.
Repair or replace any worn, damaged, or missing parts.

safety signs. When replacing parts with safety signs attached, the safety signs must also
be replaced.
Replacing Safety Signs: Clean the area of application with nonflammable
solvent, then wash the same area with soap and water. Allow the surface to fully dry.
Remove the backing from the safety sign, exposing the adhesive surface. Apply the
safety sign to the position shown in the diagram above and smooth out any bubbles.
