WA Schools Love the ASC Eureka M3 Sweepers
Mandurah Baptist College is a large college with grades ranging from Kindergarten through to Year 12. It is based an hour south of the centre of Perth (WA). The school went through major renovations for increasing its classrooms. It was established back in 2005 and currently has 1100 students in the idyllic seaside suburb.
The head Gardner/groundsman, Eddy, contacted ASC’s Ross Sheehan and requested him to recommend a machine that would keep the large paved/concrete areas clean. Previously, the school used leaf blowers and suction sweepers for keeping their grounds clean.
However, now they wanted to improve ground cleanliness and were adamant that they wanted a dust-free solution while cleaning, as they didn’t want the children to breathe in the airborne particles. They also required clean and green battery-run machines to get rid of the noisy petrol engines.
The school has two sections, Primary and Secondary. One has large Maple leaves that the suction sweepers are great at collecting, and the other smaller Chines Elms with small, fine leaves. Eddy, the Groundsman, told Ross that he wanted a sweeper to collect all the small pieces of elm leaves, along with dust, dirt and other small debris.
Ross demonstrated the Eureka Mach 3 battery sweeper, which performed the task outstandingly. The only issue they had was the storage of the Mach 3 sweeper, as their shed was at the back of the sporting oval.
Eddy wanted the Mach 3 as he was blown away by its performance, so he used his resourcefulness and got a paved path made from the shed to the schoolyard for storing it.
The School chose to invest in a single side brush M3, as they 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 withheld the Mach 3 until the start of 2020 to enable Eddy to be ready for its delivery.
