FAQs About Handheld Sweepers

What is the difference between a magnetic sweeper and a gas-powered sweeper?

  • Magnetic sweepers are constructed with magnets that pull metal fasteners from a surface while a spring-loaded release mechanism empties them into an attached receptacle. Gas-powered sweepers are constructed with bristles or rubber "blades" with a motor that powers their operation, dusting, pushing or sweeping dirt away from a surface.

Can gas-powered sweepers be used inside?

  • Gas-powered sweepers a generally intended for outdoor use where gas emissions can be released into the fresh air. Further, these sweepers are more commonly used for trash, debris, dust, dirt and even clearing light, powdery snow.

How do I use a handheld sweeper?

  • With handheld sweeper models, you grip the handles and walk the area you want to clear while pushing the tool in front of you. With gas-powered models, there may be additional instructions for safe and accurate use. We suggest thoroughly reading instruction manuals to understand equipment use and connecting with a specialist at your local United Rentals branch for additional support.
