Bucher Johnston VT Drive Mechanism for Australian Made Brooms 
Our Australian made, Red Poly, spirally wound Bucher Johnston rotary road brooms, are fitted with an extra tough, Nylon Star Drive. Customer feedback on these drives has been excellent, as a result, we decided to have the very same drives installed in our Imported brooms.

Imported Bucher Broom Drive Mechanism
The Nylon drive end in our Imported Blue Poly Bucher brooms, have been seen to perform favourably when compared to the Polyurethane drive ends used in other Imported brands. For example, it is much more likely Nylon will withstand the everyday rigours, whereas Polyurethane can crack and shatter under heavy a work load.  Therefore, costly down time and machine maintenance may be reduced by using our brooms.

Australian Made Macdonald Johnston Broom, KEY Drive Mechanism
Our Australian made, Red Poly spirally wound brooms, made for older Macdonald Johnston 600 series sweepers, are fitted with a metal Key Drive.

Key Drives were standard for Wide Sweep brooms from the 1980’s until 2012, after that sweeper manufacturers Imported foreign brooms with plastic drive ends.

Replacement Brooms

Here we’ll talk about some general features of Bucher Johnson VT, VS, LT, 600 and 605 series replacement brooms. For instance, Genuine 100% Australian made Wide sweep brooms, in Red Poly or a Poly/Wire bristle combo, that come with a variety of options, are a great choice. In contrast we highlight the Bucher MacDonald Johnston imported blue poly main brooms.

We’ll also take a look at the Bucher Johnston Channel or Gutter brooms options.  Such as two, three and four row wire bristled gutter brooms, poly bristled brushes and the features and benefits of Australian made products.

Bucher wide sweep and gutter brushes are generally available ex stock. However, for older models, Australian brooms can be made to order within a couple of weeks. 

Genuine 100% Australian Made Brooms

100% Australian made, Bucher Macdonald Johnson VT, VS, LT, 600 and 605 series Wide Sweep and Gutter brooms can easily and quickly be adapted to suit every sweeping situation.

Furthermore, Australian brooms utilise materials that are sustainably sourced, use less energy, break down quickly in Landfill, and can easily be recycled.

Australian Wide Sweep brushes: Red poly is wound onto a steel core, wire can be added to the Poly where a vigorous sweep is required. It’s also worth noting that stiffer or softer bristles are available, depending on your specification.

Australian Gutter brooms: are generally, timber backed and filled with 2 rows of wire for an aggressive clean.  In contrast, Poly bristled gutter brooms are used where wire might be an issue, in airports for example.  Again, you can specify the stiffness of poly based on your needs and you can see here What a difference the Right Poly can make

Imported Brooms

For those who prefer Imported brooms, Bucher Macdonald Johnson VT, VS, LT, 600 and 605 series Wide Sweep brooms and Gutter brooms are available.

Imported brooms are made from materials that are not sustainably sourced (petroleum). Consequently, imported brooms require more energy to make, get shipped 1000’s of Kilometres, and ultimately take up to a 1000 years to break down in Landfill. However, if you find these brooms work better for you, we have them available. 

Imported Wide Sweep brushes; Blue poly is “Punched” into a Plastic core. This is a “one size fits all” broom, with no options available for wire to be added (exception being the MB045PW), or for variations in the stiffness of poly.

Imported Gutter brooms; are plastic backed and filled with either 3 or 4 rows of wire for an aggressive clean.  What’s best 2, 3 or 4 Row Wire Gutter Brooms

Whereas Poly bristled gutter brooms are used where wire might be an issue, in airports, footpaths and Malls for example.

Once again these are a “one size fits all” broom, with no options available in the stiffness of poly.
