Walk-Behind Gas-Powered Rotary Broom
Black gasoline engine mounted on silver tubular frame of 2 push-handles with bright orange cover over rotary broom mounted on the front. Broom bristles are on a horizontal shaft.

The brush head can be pivoted up to 40 degrees in order to sweep the debris in whatever direction the user desires and/or reach into tight, confined areas. The head is also height adjustable to accommodate the type of surface and what's to be removed.
