Johnston Madvac Inc. offers the PS300 hydraulic debris dumping system as a new option to the PS300 pedestrian sweeper. This new option eliminates bag handling and increases productivity two-fold.

This eliminates manual lifting of the debris out of the debris hopper, decreases the dumping cycle and increases productivity. It features two self-leveling brushes, patented straight-through suction, two-step dust-filtering system and 30-gallon-capacity litter container.

Olympic Pool Cleaners
The Olympics have chosen to use Aqua Products' Gemini to clean the pools this summer in Athens. Aqua Products specializes in robotic pool cleaners that have a "brain" to calculate the most efficient way to clean every square inch of the pool surface in four hours or less. An infrared "eye" watches out to make sure nothing stops its progress as it scoots around the bottom and sides of the pool. The Gemini is Aqua Products' latest commercial cleaner. There are no hoses of any kind to attach, and it only takes a flip of a switch to get it started.
