Transportation & Distribution
DuraSweeper LLC’s intends to make winter time driving safer, reduce the number of accidents, help prevent people from getting injured or even killed from “flying snow”, and reduce company’s liabilities. The DuraSweeper SR-100’s core function is its high speed brush technology that seamlessly removes accumulated snow from the rooftops of trucks and buses of all shapes and sizes without damaging the delicate fiber glass surface. The snow is forced off either side of the vehicle to allow for a continuous flow of a fleet traffic allowing for on time departures from the facility. The DuraSweeper is so versatile that it does not only remove accumulated snow but it can be used to remove debris such as metal shavings, glass fragments and other debirs left on flatbed trailers that haul junked cars and other types of property. In a short amount of time, DuraSweeper LLC has sold 22 machines to several large corporations in the United States including PepsiCo/Frito Lay, Pitt Ohio Express,Stop n Shop, Rite Aid, Dart Container, Lakeland Bus,Ohio Illuminating Company, Vineland NJ Board Of Education, and Hackney Trailers. In addition to the already installed machines at Frito Lay, DuraSweeper has a verbal commitment from them to purchase a minimal of four additional machines this Spring. DuraSweeper plans to penetrate the trucking industry with focus on reaching key safety decision makers in the distribution centers and corporations of the United States, Canada and Europe. Additional revenue streams for DuraSweeper will include a fee for service system to be installed at truck stops. Initial contact with FlyingJ, to purchase or lease machines with a fee for service with the opportunity for royalties to be paid has been made. Presently the DuraSweeper SR 100 is manufactured in Lincolnton, North Carolina by VT Leeboy, a leader in the manufacture of road construction equipment.
Products / Services
The DuraSweeper SR-100 safely removes debris such as snow or metal shavings from the roofs of trailers, flatbeds, tankers, buses, straight jobs and just about any commercial vehicle on the road by using a high speed poly wafer brush. The patented flicking action of the brush and its speed quickly and without damaging the integrity of the roof, removes accumulated snow and debris. The DuraSweeper can be erected to allow the snow to be thrown to either direction to allow for continuous traffic flow, where the blade type devices can only remove snow in one direction.

Senior Vice President Executive Officer
Mr. William Candeletti is the inventor and the patent holder of the DuraSweeper. He invented this machine while working as a Police Officer. While on patrol he was alerted to be on the look out for a tractor trailer with snow on its rooftop. The alert was sent after a motorist was killed from the dislodging snow. It was then that he came up with the idea of creating a machine that could easily remove accumulated rooftop snow so that the motoring public will not have to endure this type of hazard while driving on this countries roadways.
During his Police tenure Lt. Candeletti was the Commanding Officer of the departments afternoon shift, also the officer in charge of the departments motorcycle squad. He accumulated over 100 commendations during his 28 plus year career. Mr. Candeletti retired from the Police dept., in 2006 with the rank of Lieutenant.
