Road Milling & Pavement Sweeper Trucks
Milling and repaving are some of the most critical and challenging processes in road maintenance. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requires that you thoroughly inspect roads after milling to ensure there are no large or small chunks of asphalt left over. This key step prevents pieces of remaining asphalt from cracking windshields and posing a threat to drivers on the road. It is also important to control the presence of mud, dirt and gravel.
Thankfully, there is an efficient solution to milling and repaving cleanup. A professional street sweeper from Stewart-Amos Sweeper Co. can help clear the road after cold milling. A mechanical broom sweeper uses a rotating cylindrical broom that flicks unwanted debris onto a conveyor built for transfer to the hopper.
As it sweeps the street, the broom breaks the largest pieces into manageable chunks for easy transfer to the hopper. However tough the job, the Stewart-Amos Sweeper Co. has a line of road milling sweepers with different strengths and sizes to complete your project.

Benefits of Owning a Street Milling Sweeper Truck
A heavy-duty street sweeping truck is an investment in your local roadways and your business or organization. Milling machines often move 100 to 130 feet per minute, so it is necessary to have machinery that can keep up with the demand.
The primary benefits of owning a street milling sweeper truck include:
- Competence: Cleaning up after milling is one of the most difficult tasks for a sweeper truck operator because of heavy debris. When you manage your team members rather than outsourcing, you control who is operating your machinery on the job site to ensure proper operation.
- Maintenance: Professionals agree that a street sweeper should be in top condition when tackling a milling job to ensure it can handle the task. You can guarantee the quality of your equipment with up-to-date maintenance and inspections.
- Multitasking: You can use a street sweeper for your own operations and rent it out to others for extra income during slow periods.
