Glutton helps Jewellery Quarter to sparkle

An innovative street cleaning machine is helping Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter to shine even brighter. The Jewellery Quarter Business Improvement District (JQBID) recently invested in a Glutton street cleaner for its team to help further improve cleanliness in the area.

Luke Crane, executive director of JQBID, said: “The Glutton machine we recently purchased for the Jewellery Quarter BID is a fantastic addition to our clean team. It is extremely easy to manoeuvre, something we thought we would have difficulty with, but just the opposite has been the case. It is also a very easy machine to use and the suction of the Glutton is very powerful meaning there are very few things it won’t pick up. Should there be a blockage anywhere in the pipe it is so easy to remove.”

The Glutton is an all-electric, pedestrian controlled vacuum cleaner that can tackle dust, dirt and debris up to 12.5cm in diameter. The battery-powered machine is quiet, efficient and designed to capture dust, helping to improve air quality. The Jewellery Quarter is one of the first to deploy the Glutton H₂O Perfect, which has an integrated power washer. The vacuum picks up waste from the smallest recesses, while the water jet deep cleans any remaining debris. The water tank can also be mixed with sanitiser so the machine can sanitise public infrastructure such as bins and benches.

It is designed for use on all types of ground, including concrete, tarmac, paving, lawns, and cinder tracks. It is equally effective outdoors on pavements, public roads and car parks as it is indoors in shopping centres, factories and warehouses.
