Road Wizard Features Improved Design


Elgin Sweeper has introduced a new Road Wizard mechanical sweeper featuring an improved design and available with a choice of Freightliner, UD, and International chassis, in conventional or cabover configurations. The new design features an improved spray system water pump, and more efficient hydraulics. The sweeper is powered by a liquid-cooled, low emission Tier 4i engine that provides variable control over sweeper speeds with no effect on truck speed.

“The broom placement on the Road Wizard has been optimized for sweep performance, making it ideal for heavy municipal and construction applications,” said Brian Giles, sweeper product manager at Elgin Sweeper. “The improved design also includes chassis wheelbases as short as 335 cm, resulting in a 2,75 m sweepable inside radius for cul-de-sacs and islands and a 7,6 m sweepable outside radius for cul-de-sac curb lines and tightly winding streets.”

Mr Giles said Elgin Sweeper’s engineers worked directly with their dealers and customers to conduct field testing on the Road Wizard and provide input. “We are pleased with the feedback we’ve received from the field and we are also encouraged that our customers have played an important role in ensuring the ongoing success of the Road Wizard sweeper.”

The new elevator design on the improved Road Wizard provides variable sweep heights – standard, elevated and transport heights – and dramatically reduces machine downtime for elevator service. The modular design of the sweeper’s conveyor allows for rapid removal for repair or replacement.

The water tank assembly on the redesigned Road Wizard consists of three tanks, eliminating the need for internal baffles and allowing for easy replacement. The capacity on the new water tank has been increased from 1287 l to 1363 l for extended operation. The volumetric capacity on the new hopper remains one of the largest in the industry, at 4,13 m3.

The new hopper adopts the “tilt frame” concept along with other Elgin products, assuring a robust and long life hopper and lift assembly.
