Embracing Cleaner Energy with the Elgin Crosswind CNG

Traditional street sweepers rely heavily on diesel fuel, a fossil fuel notorious for its harmful emissions. On the other hand, the Elgin Crosswind CNG model operates on Compressed Natural Gas, a cleaner and more eco-friendly energy source. Compared to diesel and gasoline, CNG releases significantly fewer pollutants, making it a greener choice for urban sanitation efforts.

The Elgin Crosswind CNG is not only equipped to run the chassis on CNG but also the auxiliary engine, contributing to a significant reduction in the overall carbon footprint. With 4 composite 3600 PSI tanks, this model boasts an ample 60 Diesel Gallon Equivalent (DGE) of fuel range.

The eco-friendliness of the Elgin Crosswind CNG model doesn’t mean a compromise on performance. This model is designed for high productivity, efficiency, and versatility, making it suited for general street sweeping, large flat surfaces, leaves, and light road debris applications.

The model features an efficient air conveyance system and a powerful General Motors V8 spark-ignited auxiliary engine rated at 124hp. This powerful engine drives a high-capacity, efficient loading system and a superior vacuum source. Together, these features allow the Crosswind CNG model to handle various sweeping needs with ease and efficiency.

Reducing Noise and Improving User Experience

In addition to being eco-friendly, the Elgin Crosswind CNG model is designed to minimize noise pollution, a common issue with many street sweepers. This attribute makes it a more acceptable choice in residential areas, especially during early morning or late-night operations.

The user experience is further enhanced by simple, easy-access maintenance and ergonomic controls. These features, along with the worldwide factory-trained dealer network, ensure a seamless user experience from delivery to far down the road.

The Elgin Crosswind CNG model represents an essential step toward sustainable urban sanitation.
