Mandurah Baptist College is a large college, its grades ranging from Kindergarten through to Year 12.

Based an hour south from the centre of Perth (WA), the school has had some major renovations to buildings throughout 2019 and is increasing it classrooms. Established in 2005 the school has 1100 students in the idyllic seaside suburb.

The Challenge

The head Gardner/grounds man, Eddy made contact with ASC’s Ross Sheehan in relation to adding a machine to help clean the large paved/concrete areas.

Prior to Ross’ involvement, the school were using traditional leaf blowers and suction sweepers to keep the grounds clean.

The school wanted to improve ground cleanliness and were adamant they wanted a dust free solution while cleaning as they were concerned about children breathing in the airborne particles.

They also wanted to get away from noisy petrol engines and operate clean and green battery run machines.

The Solutions:

The school has two sections, Primary and Secondary.

One has large Maple leaves which the suction sweepers are great at collecting and the other smaller Chines Elms with small, fine leaves.

Eddy the Grounds man wanted a sweeper to collect all the small pieces of elm leaves, along with dust, dirt and other small debris.

The Eureka Mach 3 battery sweeper was demonstrated and performed the task very well.

One small issue was storage of the Mach 3 sweeper, the shed was at the back of the sporting oval.

The result:

Eddy’s resourcefulness showed and he had a paved path from the shed to the school yard to store the ASC M3 sweeper.

The School chose to invest in a single side brush M 3 as they really only had to sweep gutters and garden beds from one side, thus saving brush wear.

Ross had the sweeper ready at the end of the 2019 school year but was able to hold the Mach 3 until the start of 2020 to enable Eddy to be ready for its delivery.
