Elgin Sweeper is now offering a single-engine configuration of its Crosswind regenerative air sweeper used for cleaning large, paved areas such as streets, parking lots, and airport runways. A variable-speed device installed between the chassis engine and transmission on the new configuration allows the engine to simultaneously power both the truck and the sweeper.
Previously, single-engine air sweeper technology required a cumbersome multi-step process to switch between road and work modes. The new Crosswind allows the operator to switch between modes with a simple push of a button, without the need to stop.
The single engine, combined with Elgin Sweeper’s Quiet Pak sound-dampening technology, helps minimize vibration and noise on the new Crosswind.
Because the chassis engine on the new Crosswind operates under a higher load, it minimizes particulate matter buildup that would require active regeneration to burn off. The time-consuming and costly maintenance checks, after-treatments, and additional service requirements associated with an auxiliary engine are eliminated on the single-engine Crosswind. Downtime and expenses are reduced with only one set of engine maintenance requirements.
