Same here. Had a playground sweeper called a litter bug. Used it once then gave it to reception kids .
As others have said also use a leaf blower on the play surface for quickness

Just been watching YouTube videos of these and they are amazing never knew they existed, just priced them up and I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon, struggle to get a new brush head at times haha.

I am so pleased I asked the question on the forum as first school I ever worked at had one and it was ace! Just picked up a secondhand one on eBay under £500!

Re: Playground Sweepers

I'd be lost without my billygoat at this time of year especially, most mornings I spend nearly an hour out in the playgrounds sucking up leaves, dam conker trees are a pain in the butt lol
