Utilize any skidsteer to keep landfills, construction sites, precast concrete yards, mining sites, farms and other industrial sites clear of metal debris that can easily cause flat tires, personnel injuries, or product contamination. The Meerkat magnet can effectively collect debris at speed and over tough terrain thanks to the set of three 6.8" W x 5.25" H x 20.75" L swinging magnets and heavy duty construction. The pivot points on these magnets have UHMW bushings which grant smooth action and a long wear life. By having these magnets on a pivot, the Meerkat can drop the collected debris using our gravity powered Swing-Out Clean-Off system that operates just like emptying a normal bucket. The pivoting magnets stay stable while sweeping due to the magnets sticking to the steel frame when level. The Swing-Out Clean-off allows an operator to take debris from the ground to a dumpster without assistance or having to handle the debris, increasing efficiency and safety. Depending on the lift on your machine, the Meerkat can also empty into 8 foot scrap metal bins. The Meerkat magnetic sweeper utilizes a gravity operated swing-out clean-off system which requires no hydraulics or electronics to operate, to clean the magnet off you simply tip the unit forward like you would when emptying a bucket which separates the metal debris from the magnetic field. The Meerkat can empty into 8-foot bins (pictured) if your model of track loader has enough lift. The Meerkat’s magnets will magnetize to the frame of the sweeper when in sweeping position so there is no swinging while the magnets are working. The Meerkat features a Universal Adaptor Plate connection with 0-degree lead in which allows for easy magnet positioning – you can hook up to it just like a bucket, roll the sweeper all the way back, then set the lift arms of the skid steer / track loader on their lower stops, which will position the Meerkat in the recommended sweeping height of 3" to 4" inches. Any adjustment from there can be done using the controls to set the magnet level or change the engagement of the optional Meerkat Debris Digging Rake Connecting the Meerkat magnet to a skid-steer or track loader is the same procedure as mounting a bucket or any other non-powered attachment, latching into the adaptor plate and engaging the safeties is all that is required to start sweeping with the Meerkat. Making it easy to switch between other tools and back to the Meerkat without getting out of the cab and connecting hydraulic connections. Quick coupling – connect to Universal Adaptor Plate with no need to connect to hydraulics enabling you to switch back and forth between tools without getting out of the cab 3 x Permanently charged C8 grade magnets that are 6.8" W x 5.25" H x 20.75" L Single pole assembly for maximum power in operating range 67" sweeping width covers entire area ahead of skid steer wheels or tracks (71" total width) 10" Maximum pickup height provides great performance at recommended height and speeds Simple gravity, swinging magnet clean-off system needs no maintenance operates like a standard bucket Because of the weight distribution, the Meerkat can be attached to all but the smallest skid steers without overloading the machine Universal Adaptor Plate to bottom of magnet design and 0-degree lead in allows for easy magnet positioning – you can couple into it and if you set the lift arms of the skid steer on their lower stops it will provide a 3"- 4" sweeping height, so you can’t ram it into the ground.
