Forklift push brush

Anybody using one of these? Our bucket brush has had it and I’ve never been a fan of it as it creates so much dust and the caster wheels are weak so I’m thinking a push brush would be better.
Which ones to look at ?

Got a sweepex mainly for clearing up in grain store but gets used elsewhere too.put jcb q fit brackets on it so picks upon carriage.it does make a bit of dust but ok if you take your time.only issue is no being able to see the edge of brush but I added a 4 ft rod either end vertically with a tennis ball on the top which helps enourmously with vision.

I’ve never used one or seen one in action so I could be wrong but I imagine they just spread stuff around rather than sweep it up?
Happy with a bucket brush here but as you say they can be dusty if it’s dry. I just usually wait for a bit of rain first.

good for grain stores or yards that are very wet or dry in between not so good
iv a set of Jcb tines strapped into sockets for pallet tines works well on Jcb since they float you can’t put too much pressure on them
also as kennyo says great and handy on ind forklift in stores

Got to say mine works very well.saves hours sweeping up grain and only 5 mins sweeping 90x120 grainstore.

We have one and hardly ever use it for the simple reason that they’re rubbish if it’s mud or muck you’re trying to brush. Fine for dust or grain

Won’t beat a power brush for getting concrete clean(er) though
