Articulating Boom Vacuum Hose

At the heart of the Megawind is a patented articulating boom design that controls the vacuum hose. This revolutionary boom system allows a full 180 degrees of boom travel and over 200 degrees of hose reach while allowing finger tip control within the indicated hose/nozzle work area. This system provides the operators with a wide work area as well as allowing the vacuum hose to fold inward on itself, within the rear profile of the sweeper, during transportation, dumping or while not in use. The unique design provides the operator more freedom of movement for work than other designs on the market which limit the work area to the outer perimeter set by the radius of the vacuum hose. The hydraulically articulated boom can be moved in/out, up/down, and left/right.

The Megawind’s vacuum hose has a maximum lift height of nearly 14 feet when the boom is completely unfolded. The standard heavy duty flex hose diameter is 12” and is equipped with a manual rear gate-valve that allows the operator to cut off airflow to the hose and retain debris in the hopper during transport – all without using a clamp-on blanking plate. The boom is operated with a pendant control that includes: throttle up/down, shoulder in/out, elbow in/out, lift up/down, and engine control. A wireless remote control is also available.

SUPERIOR FAN PERFORMANCE
The highly efficient Megawind fan system provides the optimum blend of airflow and static vacuum, while consuming less energy. Airflow is needed to carry the debris from the suction nozzle into the hopper. Vacuum is needed to overcome restrictions such as rocks or bulky debris. The Megawind fan has a rating of 30,000 CFM of airflow and can produce up to 44 inches of water column vacuum. More airflow ensures rapid material pick-up.

DUAL ENGINE DESIGN
Power to the vacuum system is provided by a John Deere 4045T Tier 3 Emission compliant, 4-cylinder, turbocharged engine rated at 115 HP (86kW) @ 2400 RPM. Reliable, powerful and fuel efficient.

ARTICULATING BOOM VACUUM HOSE
The articulating boom controls the vacuum hose and allows a full 180 degrees of boom travel and over 200 degrees of hose reach while allowing hose positioning anywhere in a 10 ft radius. This system provides operators with a wide work area as well as allowing the vacuum hose to fold inward on itself, within the rear profile of the sweeper, during transportation, dumping or while not in use. Controlled with a pendant, the hydraulically articulating boom can be moved in/out, up/down, and left/right.

DEDICATED PUMP FOR CATCH BASIN CLEANING
A dedicated diaphragm jetter-style pump is separate from the optional dust control system pump. Designed for catch basin work, the pump delivers 290 psi and 23 gpm.

SWEEPER SYSTEM (OPTIONAL)

The optional sweeper system is specifically designed for bulky debris such as leaves and sticks. The components include a unique “open throat” suction nozzle, trailing arm side brooms and an extension broom. The open throat design reduces clogging and plugging associated with leaves, twigs, mud, bricks and broken pavement.

Choose single or dual 35-inch (890 mm) abrasion resistant suction nozzles. The 11-inch (279 mm) suction hose accepts large debris. The quick-disconnect feature allows an operator to inspect and clean the hose intake tube without raising the hopper. The standard nozzles are optimized for leaf and stick pick-up and utility sweeping.

SIDE BROOMS
36-inch (914 mm) diameter free-floating trailing arm side brooms can be operated individually or simultaneously for a 12-foot (3658 mm) sweep path. Side brooms have inward motion to prevent damage when sweeping around parked vehicles and other fixed obstacles

MEMORY SWEEP
Elgin’s Memory Sweepsystem allows the operator to resume all previous sweep settings, even broom tilt (if so equipped), with one-touch control to enhance productivity and reduce fatigue. It incorporates a multi-screen display that indicates system diagnostics, engine hours, water level, and optional features such as broom tilt angle and broom hours.

EFFICIENT DUST SUPPRESSION
Two corrosion-resistant tanks supply the jetting and sweeper dust suppression system with 335 gallons (1268 L) of water. Optional tanks provide an additional 280 gallons (1060 L). The water system features long-life, quick-disconnect fittings.

EXTENSION BROOM

For enhanced sweeping and pick-up performance, the 54-inch (1372 mm) hydraulically-driven extension broom operates at a 24-degree windrow angle, directing the material into the path of the nozzle.

EASY MAINTENANCE ACCESS

The easier daily service is to perform, the more likely it will get done correctly and on time. Major system components are protected from the elements and are easily accessible for service and inspection without tilting the hopper. The engine oil can be checked, hydraulic filter changed, pneumatic pressure verified and fan bearings greased from the ground or an optional work platform.

OPERATOR FRIENDLY CONTROLS
Easy-to-read auxiliary engine gauges provide quick assessment of all operating conditions. Water pump controls and in-cab hopper controls use simple rocker switches located on a centrally-mounted console for easy operation. The optional sweeper system Includes air regulators to provide positive side broom down pressure. Separate switches control the side broom in/out and up/down function. High/low dust suppression water spray flow rate is standard.

QUICK, COMPLETE DUMPING
10 or 13, cubic yard (7.65, 9.94, cubic meter) hoppers are constructed of 10-gauge steel walls, a ¼-inch (6.35 mm) thick floor with drop-down screens for quick cleanup. A 50-degree tilt angle ensures efficient dumping. Hopper controls are safely accessible on the curb side of the sweeper and in the cab.

LIFELINER HOPPER SYSTEM

The LifeLiner hopper system is a specially designed hopper liner and finish system that greatly improves the life, durability, and functionality of a sweeper hopper.
