Spotlight on the Elgin Broom Bear

ElginBroomBearOne of the most efficient and durable mechanical street sweepers today, the Elgin Broom Bear can handle even the toughest clean-up challenges. When you need a rugged sweeper that’s comfortable and easy to operate, the Broom Bear is the best option, and its innovative design makes it the sweeper of choice for nearly any municipal or construction job. Check out some of these notable features to see why:

Power + Reliability

The Elgin Broom Bear features a high torque diesel engine paired with an International Durastar or Freightliner Business Chassis to deliver the ultimate in reliability and power. The single engine layout also provides better fuel efficiency and easier maintenance.

Enhanced Productivity

The main broom on the Broom Bear is attached to a floating trailer arm to increase safety and productivity while better conforming to contours in roads. Productivity is also boosted by automatic settings for wear control and down pressure. The lower functions and lift are easy to control right from the cab, and the main broom arm bearings self-align and adjust when experiencing an uneven load.

Maximum Strength

The Elgin Broom Bear features a standard variable height dump that makes it easy for operators to unload at ground level to the full dump truck height, and the hopper allows for material to be unloaded into the middle of a container or truck. Even at its full lift capacity of up to 11,000 pounds, the hopper can be completely raised, dumped and retracted in just over one minute.
