Elgin Sweeper Offers Autocar Cab-Over Chassis Option
Elgin Sweeper has introduced an Autocar, LLC cab-over chassis option for the Elgin Broom Bear® single-engine mechanical sweeper. The first commercially available cab-over chassis for the Broom Bear provides a tighter turning radius and best-in-class in-cab visibility.
“We are proud to collaborate with Autocar to develop the only single-engine, cab-over mechanical sweeper in the industry,” said Adam Braun, associate product manager, Elgin Sweeper. “This chassis package for the Elgin Broom Bear will exceed the maneuverability and visibility needs of our municipal and contractor customers handling everything from heavy-duty construction debris sweeping to light street maintenance.”
Featuring a 3454 mm wheel base, the new cab-over chassis is equipped with a Cummins ISL 9 diesel engine rated at 260 hp @ 2200 r/min, with 720 lbf ft of torque. The chassis also features an Allison 3500 transmission and a 2-speed rear axle.
The new chassis accommodates the optional 4.1 m3 hopper without increasing the sweeper’s wheelbase. This allows for increased capacity of sweeping debris without sacrificing maneuverability. Operator ergonomics are optimized on both sides of the factory dual steer system.
The Elgin Broom Bear is designed for heavy sweeping of such granular materials as millings and gravel. Simple sweeper controls make it easy to operate. With its highway speeds and short wheelbase, the Broom Bear is suited for both congested urban areas and remote rural locations.
