    Good day, trust everyone is well. I would like some information with regard to road sweeper. I am comparing machines and would like to know which of the 2 brands that I have shortlisted would be a good machine all round. I am looking at the Superior broom DT80 and the Rosco RB50. I am based in South Africa and superior controls the market, but recently Leeboy has entered the market in South Africa and the RB50 broom seems more stronger and rigid for the harsh African environment. I see the superior uses a prop shaft while the RB50 is direct drive. The one issue I have is that the RB50 is only 2 way wet braking while the superior is 4 way braking. Please can I have some input from people who have experience or operated these machines . Thanks
