The winch is powered by the tow vehicles battery via clip-on connectors or via a Anderson connection run to the rear of the tow vehicle.
When coming to the end of a pass or joining existing work the unit may be raised, towed and turned around at the next intersection just like a regular trailer. On returning to the work area it should be lowered before rejoining the work. This returns any stones to the work so that they do not get crushed into the existing asphalt surface.
Due to a rigid drawbar, not only does the operator have better control, but the Dragbroom works extremely well in reverse.
The Drag Broom can be conveniently transported on an ordinary ute without overhangs, and may be towed on its wheels to and from the park-up area saving brush wear.
