The idea of the original Tow Behind Magnetic Sweeper never made any sense to me. Why on earth would you run over ferrous metal debris to then collect it? Our mission for change would be simple; find a suitable way of getting a heavy duty magnet in front of the vehicle. As we learn more about markets that have a need for the new design, I am constantly humbled that our SuperMag products continue to make a positive impact on our environment while promoting safety virtually everywhere.

What makes the SuperMag by STORCH so special?
We know how important it is to keep your working area safe. It’s important to us too! That’s why we created the SuperMag by STORCH.
Our designs are precise and powerful. Built in the United States, the SuperMag is designed to last generations with less than 1% of magnet life loss per 100 years.
The SuperMag is the first magnet of its kind that can be towed or front mounted. The permanent magnet is hydraulically actuated, hinging upward and away from your working surface. This separates the magnetic field from the debris you’ve collected and allows the material to drop away from the unit into your desired location.
Unlike traditional electromagnets, the solid state SuperMag magnetic system requires no maintenance, has no wires or coils, and does not require a generator or an electrical source to activate.
A green solution to standard diesel and gas powered electromagnetic sweepers.
How it Works
Here are the basics of the SuperMag by STORCH.
The concept is very simple. With the magnet in the lowered position, your SuperMag will attract and pick up metal debris. This debris will remain attached to the stainless steel plate just below the magnet. Once the magnet is lifted by your already existing hydraulic system, the magnetic current is redirected and the debris you have picked up is now released and falls directly to your desired location with the help of gravity. Don’t have hydraulics on your machine? Don’t worry! SuperMag also carries an external hydraulic system that easily fits on every SuperMag model.

SuperMag 88: Front Mount Sweeper
The world’s first self-cleaning permanent magnet engineered specifically to work in front of your vehicle.
The SuperMag 88 uses your existing Straight Blade snow plowing system, requires NO additional attachments, and is ideal for smooth or graded surfaces.
In the comfort of the cab, the operator can use a standard 4 button plow controller to raise and lower the SuperMag 88 assembly just like a snow plow blade using the existing up/down buttons. The plow hand controller left/right buttons cycle the hydraulic cylinder inside the housing which rotates the permanent magnet up and down.
The SuperMag 88 has an optimized magnetic strength-to-weight ratio maintaining a 670lb. weight for the ability to mount to existing plow systems for medium duty jobs
Heavy Duty Trucks: Municipal and County
County vehicles can experience flats at a pace of nearly one every two hours while working the shoulders for road maintenance and pothole campaigns. Hours of down time due to flats can equal miles of unmaintained roads.
Stay on task with the SuperMag by STORCH.
7 flat tires occur every second in the United States. That’s 220 million each year.
Skid Steer Loader: Universal Adapter
The Standard Skid Steer Loader Mount fits hundreds of different machines and Equipment.
Ground-to-scrap-bin discharge is direct when used on a Skid Steer or ForkTruck. This exclusive feature is the fastest method for cleaning large lots of ferrous debris in highly covered areas.
3-Point Tractor Adapter Mount Adapter
The SuperMag 3-Point Tractor adapter works best with tractors or vehicles with large pneumatic tires that tend to bounce while driving at operating speeds.
When front mount is not an option, a 3-Point Tractor Mount adapter is the ideal solution.
On the factory floor we've heard that you have a problem.
Common risks to workers who manually lift and handle scrap metal include strains and back injuries from improper lifting, bending, twisting, and carrying loads that are too large or too heavy, resulting in cuts and lacerations caused by falling or sliding sharp materials.
Don’t have auxiliary hydraulic power quick couplers on your machine?
No worries, the SuperMag Power Hydraulic Kit is available.
The unit features a 12-volt deep cycle battery and an 110-volt 5-amp battery tender. The bi-directional hydraulic pump has a two quart reservoir and a weather resistant 25’ corded controller. JIC male fittings and two connection hoses make this kit easy to connect to your
The SuperMag Power Hydraulic Kit also has an optional solar charging panel on the top lid that is self charging when left outdoors. Visit our website for details.
Tow Behind Kit
Keep debris at bay with the SuperMag Tow Behind Kit.
The SuperMag Tow Behind Kit is great for uneven surfaces where the vehicle and the magnet need to function independently. From ATV/ORV trails to sports fields to vehicle test tracks, the SuperMag Tow Behind Kit is idea for the cleanup phase after the fun is over. During the action, nuts and bolts rattle loose, bobby pins go missing, and random debris gets cultivated to the surface all becoming a headache in the form of a flat tire and other damages. Metal is everywhere. Keep up with the clean up with SuperMag.
