What are the best brushes for mechanical bunk sweeps
QRB’s Super Premium Quality Brush Sections
The “QRB” range, a 100% Australian made brush segment appear to be the best. Indeed, Australian Feedlots have determined this fact in our minds, as no matter the available options, the QRB range has always been the “go to” choice for cleaning feed bunks.
Indeed, with more than 20 years of servicing Feedlots Country wide, we have only ever had good feedback on these brushes.
QRB quality is easily demonstrated, as they contain up to 40% more poly fill (bristle) than imported brush segments. In addition, the poly is quality controlled to ISO 9001, Australian quality standards. Therefore, the consistency of the red crimped poly (Polypropylene), used in the QRB Bunk sweep brushes is both consistent and guaranteed.
What Size Bunk Sweep Brushes are available
There are 5 common sizes of QRB brushes used in Feedlots, however with the advent of new and 1 off Bunk sweeps, other sizes are available!
Here are the 5 most commonly used brush segments:
20" x 5" (Overall Diameter is 508mm x 130mm Internal Diameter, Pin Drive) SUPER Premium Poly Segment
20" x 1 1/2" (Overall Diameter 508mm x 40mm Square Drive) SUPER Premium Poly Segment
24" x 11/2" (Overall Diameter 600mm x 40mm Square Drive) SUPER Premium Poly Segment
24" x 5" (Overall Diameter 600mm x 130mm Internal Diameter, Pin Drive) SUPER Premium Poly Segment
34" x 10" (Overall Diameter 860mm x 250mm Internal Diameter, Pin Drive) SUPER Premium Poly Segment
As well as these commonly used feedlot brushes there are other QRB’s that could well be used in feedlots.
If you would like to talk to us about your needs contact us and we can have a chat about your specific brush requirements.
Availability on QRB brushes is generally ex stock, and as a result despatch can be expected within 24 hours of an order being placed.
