What do we love about the Elgin Whirlwind1 street sweeper? In short, everything!
Why the Elgin Whirlwind1?
- Proven single-engine technology with shift-on-the-fly operation
- Customer tailored performance configurations
- Application flexibility
- Standard simultaneous sweep/dual nozzle sweep functionality
- Suction nozzle(s) designed for demanding road surfaces
- Dual-engine platform with patented SharedPower technology available
This new sweeper is based on the same groundbreaking technology we love in the Crosswind regenerative air sweeper, and it is ideal for uneven, patched roads and any work involving road debris, sand, millings and dirt. It’s also a proven effective tool for maintaining and restoring permeable pavement.
The Whirlwind1 is the first vacuum sweeper in North America to feature variable-speed-device (VSD) technology. Installed between the transmission and the chassis, VSD lets the engine power the sweeper and the truck simultaneously. With the simple push of a button, the operator can switch between work and road modes without having to stop and engage the parking brake.
Transforming Sweeping with Single-Engine Technology
Single-engine technology is transforming sweeping, and Whirlwind1 operators will benefit immediately. These benefits include elimination of belts, fluid coupler and exhaust after-treatments, less maintenance, reduced auxiliary engine vibration and noise, lowered cost of ownership and enhanced overall equipment value.
If you’ve ever spent eight hours a day sweeping, you know that vibrations and noise from the auxiliary engine cause serious operator fatigue. The single-engine and sound-dampening technology fo the Whirlwind1 reduce these effects without compromising the performance of the machine.
