The Sokoke is a scaled-up front mounted magnetic sweeper based on the Meerkat. The Meerkat was built specifically for use on skid steers or track loaders with universal skid steer quick attachment plate mounting systems. Whereas the Sokoke magnet is designed to work on front end loaders and skid steers. Multiple mounting options are available for different models of front-end loaders, Bluestreak Equipment offers five different brackets that fit many common mounting systems. The Sokoke features a swing-out clean-off pivoting magnet system that uses gravity to separate the three magnet assemblies from the stainless-steel debris pan when rolled forward like a normal bucket. Which then separates collected debris from the magnetic field to the ground or into a scrap bin, eliminating the need for manually handling any metal debris. When ordering the Sokoke magnetic sweeper, you will have to purchase a mounting bracket to make it work with your equipment. Bluestreak Equipment offers four different brackets for use on popular mounting systems on backhoes, loaders, skid steers, and tractors with lifting arms. Bluestreak also offers one blank bracket that can have blank hooks that match your machinery welded to it. These hooks are available from equipment dealers. The purpose of this blank bracket (Bracket A) is to adapt the Sokoke for use on a machine that has a mounting system that won’t work with an existing bracket Bluestreak offers. The names of brackets from Bluestreak are listed below with the names of the corresponding mounting systems they will work with as named by the manufacturer. In the Bluestreak standard max pickup height test, the Sokoke picks up a 2.5" inch nail from 12.5" inches off the ground, this power allows the Sokoke to have excellent performance when operating at speed over various terrains. To set the sweeping height on a skid steer, all that is required is rolling the Sokoke all the way back and setting the lift arms on the lower stops, from there the bottom of the debris pan will be at the correct height. The next step is to roll the Sokoke forward to a level position and that will be the proper sweeping height in most cases. If Debris Digging Rakes are equipped you can roll the Sokoke back and forth to change digging depth. Setting the sweeping height on a backhoe or loader is slightly more complicated than on a skid steer. The lift controls are less precise, and the attachment is less visible from the cab, the wheels on a loader have more bounce than a skid steer or track loader so sweeping height may vary more while sweeping. The Sokoke is built for heavy duty use so it needs to hold up to heavy duty abuse, offroad conditions are no problem for the Sokoke thanks to its reinforcement ribs and wrap around function that keep the magnet safe and the debris in place when the ground is struck. Since the lifting arms are so far in front of the wheels on a loader and the wheels are softer than a skid steer’s, there is often some bouncing which can cause the Sokoke to strike the ground. This is not a problem with the Sokoke because of its heavy-duty construction and four reinforcing ribs that make the Sokoke very durable. Mounts to Front end Loaders on Tractors, Backhoes, Skid Steers, Compact Track Loaders with various standard accessory brackets.

Be sure to review the dimensions of each bracket in the documents linked in the table below and measure the attachment point on your machine to verify that the bracket will fit your machine before ordering. If none of the brackets above will fit your equipment you can purchase the blank bracket (Bracket A) and have your equipment dealer supply you with blank hooks to fit your machine with the Sokoke magnetic sweeper.
