There are four different types of magnetic sweeper: hand-held, push, forklift, and trailer. These can all come in a wide variety of different shapes and sizes, but their basic characteristics stay the same.
Hand-held magnetic sweepers
A hand-held magnetic sweeper has a large magnet in a steel case with a handle for lifting and carrying over dropped ferromagnetic materials.
Push magnetic sweepers
A push magnetic sweeper is a type of magnetic sweeper with a long handle and a set of wheels which can be easily rolled around a work place.
Forklift magnetic sweepers
A forklift magnetic sweeper has attachments which enable it to be held by the fork tines of a fork lift truck.
Trailer magnetic sweepers
A trailer magnetic sweeper has a set of wheels and a coupling head, enabling it to be towed by a vehicle.
