Aussies Know How To Rid Gum Off Their Streets!

A Gum Removal Buggy Makes It Easy.

Streets everywhere are full of chewing gum, cigarette butts, leaves, etc. However, most cities do not have a souped up golf cart that will not only take care of these items, it does it with a battery powered machine that utilizes solar energy that is harvested by a roof top mounted solar panel that will heat up the water to 170c before shooting the street with water, detergent and a vacuum.

This buggy removes the gum spots within 3 seconds and uses less than three liters of water an hour. Now, that could be utilized in many cities in America. Imagine how clean the streets could be with this little guy running around.

The buggy utilizes gasoline to run the generator and the steam unit. It only costs $30 per week. It would normally cost $35 per day to run the machine. Right now they only use the vehicle for four hours per day but sometimes more depending on how much gum is on the streets.

It has been patrolling Surfers Paradise recently, drawing baffled stares from tourists. It will face a tougher job cleaning up sticky spots in the Cavill Mall.

It is the brain child of Tennant, the Gum Removal Vehicle was sold to the Gold Coast City Council as well as councils in Brisbane, Mackay and Liverpool. It has recently exported one to Northern Ireland.

The GRV can:

vacuum up cigarette butts
sanitize water fountains
clean bins and street furniture
clean and sanitize toilet blocks
clean BBQ plates
kill weeds
clean glass windows

I think this is a great idea for any city in the world. It should certainly cut down on city maintenence cost.

    This gum removal buggy is very useful in cleaning the cities in America.I think we also have to use this buggy in our country for removing gums in all the cities.It’s a green environment friendly buggy as it uses solar energy to charge it battery that is utilized while doing cleaning work in cities. I think every country have to use this buggy to make their land area clean and hygienic.
