ASC’s M1 Cleans Away RAAF’s Hanger Dust

RAAF’s Pt. Cook Base recently invested in a ASC M1 battery sweeper.
The base is located in Melbourne’s western suburbs. It has many hangars that house old military aircraft.

The problem.

These old hangers had a huge dust problem. Dust would blow in from the adjacent air fields and make the hangars look very messy.
The build up of dust was a never ending problem that had to be swept by hand brooms.

The Solution.

RAAF’s Adam Scherri made contact with ASC’s Ken Pepyat and asked him to bring to the base and demonstrate the popular ASC M1 Heavy Duty Sweeper.
The Mach 1 proved to be a made to measure fit as Adam tried various other brands of walk behind sweepers without luck.
The M1 outperformed all the other brands and was a more ergonomic fit for aircraft sweeping.
Tight places are needed to be swept and particular attention had be taken not to damage the aircraft. The adjustable handles on the ASC M1 sweeper proved to be a particular benefit to this operation.
