Elgin Broom Badger Mechanical Sweeper
Looking for a maneuverable yet powerful compact mechanical sweeper? If so, consider the Broom Badger™ from Elgin Sweeper. This dual-engine sweeper, is easy to operate and maintain and does not require a CDL to operate making it ideal for our municipal and contractor customers who need powerful cleaning without a full-size sweeper. The compact, low-profile design allows easy access to tree-lined streets. And the short, 109-inch (2769 mm) wheelbase and a tight turning radius give the operator great maneuverability for cul-de-sac curb lines and tightly winding streets without sacrificing robust sweeping performance.
The Broom Badger is mounted on an Isuzu NRR 19,500 lb. Class 5 cab-over chassis available with optional air ride suspension. It features a 4.0 cubic yard (3.06 cu m) hopper with variable height dumping, up to 10 ft. (3.048 m), a 220 gallon (833 L) water tank for dust suppression and dual gutter brooms for a 10 foot (3.048 m) wide sweep path.
The Broom Badger is specially suited for general municipal and contractor sweeping where heavy material may be encountered but due to narrow streets, tight turning radius a smaller sweeper is necessary. Also suitable for non-CDL operators.

COMFORTABLE CHASSIS & CAB
The Broom Badger is mounted on a 19,500 lb. GVWR Isuzu NRR Class 5 cab-over chassis with optional air ride suspension for operator comfort and highway travel speed for quick transport from job to job. The cab-over design provides excellent visibility for safer operation and has a short 109” wheelbase and tight 16’9” turning radius for exceptional maneuverability. Spot mirrors and low-cut windows enable
precise gutter broom viewing. A standard dual-camera and 7” color monitor system provide views of the side broom or rear view for increased safety when sweeping. An ergonomic control console ensures easy, comfortable operation. Simple rocker switches allow “one button” operation for quick sweep/transport mode changes.
EASY TO OPERATE. EASY TO MAINTAIN. NO CDL REQUIRED.
ROBUST SIDE BROOMS
The Broom Badger features large dual side brooms with a maximum 9’ 6” sweep path. The direct drive brooms are controlled in-cab for down pressure and tilt angle. The trailing arm design with spring kickback protects them from damage when sweeping close to obstacles. Four solid steel arms on each broom feature chromed shafts with composite greaseless bushings on all pivot points. These bushings reduce daily maintenance and have a long lifespan that results in lower overall operating costs.
EFFICIENT MAIN BROOM
The 58” polypropylene main broom is hydraulically driven. The elevator is slightly wider for closer broom placement, providing more efficient material lifting and maximizing broom effectiveness. Self-aligning bearings for the broom mount and the free floating design ensure smooth movement over road surfaces. Simple adjustments for down pressure can be made to prevent broom coning.
HEAVY DUTY SQUEEGEE ELEVATOR
The Broom Badger’s 58.5” wide direct drive squeegee elevator handles heavy-duty sweeping applications. The innovative design eliminates the need for curtains and provides increased productivity. The open design and hinged plate enables easy cleaning and inspection. An in-cab alarm notifies the operator if an elevator stall occurs, then the rotation can then be reversed from inside the cab to dislodge the jammed debris.
The heart of the Broom Badger’s hydraulic system is a variable displacement load-sensing piston pump that produces up to 32 GPM at 3,000 PSI. This style pump has lower fuel consumption and lower heat build-up across the entire hydraulic system. State-of-the-art hydraulic valves are used for each function and feature manual over-ride and flow adjustments for greater simplicity and reliability. In-cab electrical
controls, external filter and restriction indicators, and low oil level shut-down are standard. All hydraulic valves are located in one ground level area for easy maintenance.
The elevator flusher allows hydrant water flow to flood the squeegee elevator housing, reducing clean up time and effort.
AIR SUSPENSION SYSTEM
The air suspension system, an Elgin exclusive on this size chassis, allows for a smooth ride, extended suspension capacity and rock-solid hopper dumping stability.
PM-10 COMPLIANT WATER SYSTEM
The PM-10 compliant water system assures compliance with California air quality rules.
SUPERIOR MECHANICAL SWEEPER DESIGN
LARGE DEBRIS HOPPER
The side-dumping, 4 cubic yard debris hopper allows extended sweeping intervals for increased productivity on the job. The hopper is lifted by a single 4 stage cylinder lift with 9,400 lb lift capacity. A full payload can be off-loaded from the side dump hopper at ground level or at dump heights up to 10 feet.
EFFICIENT DUST SUPPRESSION SYSTEM
The sweeper is equipped with a 220 gallon polyethylene water tank for dust suppression. Water nozzles are carefully positioned to suppress dust while sweeping.
The Broom Badger’s simple electrical system has been carefully designed to be extremely easy to navigate. It is hard wired with no controllers and electrical controls are sealed in a weather-proof systems locker. Wires are color and number coded for easy maintenance and trouble shooting.
