Elgin Sweeper Offers Peterbilt Cab-over Chassis Option for Air and Mechanical Sweepers
Elgin Sweeper recently introduced a medium-duty Peterbilt Model 220 cab-over chassis option for its line of air and mechanical street sweepers. The cab-over Class 6 and 7 chassis features numerous enhancements to performance and operator comfort. Elgin Sweeper showcased a Crosswind regenerative air sweeper mounted on the Peterbilt chassis at the National Pavement Expo that took place January 28-31 in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Peterbilt right-hand steer only chassis is available for Elgin Sweeper’s air and mechanical sweepers. A dual-steer version of the Peterbilt chassis option will be available for the company’s air and mechanical sweepers later in 2015.
The new Peterbilt 220 chassis is available with a clear frame rail package option that provides up to 25 cm of additional frame rail space, compared to the previous design. This option optimizes the wheelbase for air sweepers, with a usable cab-to-rear-axle clear space of 297 cm, and a wheelbase of 396 cm. A 307 cm wheelbase is also available for mechanical sweepers. In addition to optimizing chassis space, the new option results in a 40% larger capacity diesel exhaust fluid tank, improved visibility through the rear window and greater ease of serviceability.
The chassis is equipped with a 6.7 l PACCAR PX-7 engine with up to 260 hp and up to 660 lb ft of torque. The engine delivers superior performance, minimizes operational costs and maximizes uptime. The standard automatic Allison transmission has a push-button shifter for easy engagement.
