Elgin Pelican Three-Wheel Broom Sweeper
The Elgin Pelican broom sweeper is a three-wheel mechanical sweeper based on one of the original street sweeper designs, which has been continuously improved since 1914, meeting the highest sweeper standards. Maneuverability, economy, serviceability and single lane dumping with a sweep system that easily handles heavy compacted dirt and bulky debris are all features of the Elgin Pelican. An isolation-mounted cab provides a cleaner, quieter operation, and the improved 360-degree visibility and easier access for service and maintenance make the Elgin Pelican an industry standard in road sweepers.
The Pelican is now available as an optional alternative fuel sweeper: Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). The Pelican also has a waterless dust control option.
The Elgin Pelican is specially suited for applications that require extreme maneuverability due to congested areas, heavy debris such as that found in northern climate spring clean up, and bulky items up to 9” long. The waterless version of this street sweeper can do all this without the use of dust control water, allowing for year around operation and use on water reactive compounds like Portland cement.

PELICAN – Legendary, Dependable Performance
UNIQUE SINGLE-ENGINE THREE-WHEEL DESIGN
The durable purpose-built chassis features a compact frame to maximize maneuverability and position the load low and between front wheels for stability. The high steering angle and tight turning radius allow sweeping extremely close to obstacles and following curb lines.
POWERFUL BROOM SYSTEM
Hydraulically-driven free-floating side and main brooms work as a system to sweep material from the curb and street into the debris hopper. Side brooms protrude up to 13 in (330 mm) beyond the tire to capture more curb debris. The large main broom featuresvariable-speed and down-pressure to adapt to changing conditions and follow road contours.
The Pelican’s exclusive No-Jam conveyor features molded-in full-width cleats that carry more large debris as well as small fines efficiently into the hopper. Material loads to the front first to allow maximum use of the 3.5 cu yd (2.7 cu m) hopper.
360° VISIBILITY & OPERATOR ERGONOMICS
The Pelican’s isolation-mounted cab provides a clean, quiet, and comfortable environment for the operator. Large windows, see-through doors and full-width windshield allow for 360° degree visibility.
Access to service points is simple with most accessible from ground-level. O-ring face seal hydraulic fittings are used and the electrical system features snap-together connections and color-coded wires for quick identification. The unit is equipped with a combination of in-cab and site gauges to monitor fluid levels.
Elgin Sweeper has made advancing the use of cleaner, safer, and more efficient technologies for sweeping roads and streets a priority, with innovations that provide the powerful performance, fuel economy and overall value our municipal and contractor customers demand. Today’s environmentally efficient Pelican is designed with exclusive Eco-Infused Technology, representing years of unmatched innovation and success combining the science of horsepower management with the ability to do more with less.
DURABLE, PURPOSE-BUILT CHASSIS
The Pelican’s heavy-duty construction and compact frame ensures a tight turning radius and years of reliable, low-maintenance operation. A balanced design provides stable sweeping and dumping. The hopper load is positioned low between the two front wheels for stability and safety. The axle support and hopper lift system are integral parts of the chassis.
The Pelican’s high steering angle and tight turning radius allows for quick turns, sweeping extremely close to obstacles and following curbs without Climbing or scuffing tires. Dual-tire guide wheels increase stability and steering traction.
EFFICIENT, COMFORTABLE CAB
The clean, quiet and spacious isolation-mounted cab features large windows, wide see-through doors and a full-width windshield for 360°
visibility. The center console is easily accessed from both left and right driving positions. Fingertip controls include illuminated and graphically identified gauges and rocker switches.
SPRUNG GUIDE WHEEL
The shock-absorbing, two-spring suspension design increases comfort in the cab while reducing stress on the sweeper frame-especially when operating in pothole conditions or on rough, uneven roads.
SINGLE ENGINE POWERED
The Pelican is powered by the John Deere 4045T, 4 cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine. The engine is capable of operating on bio-diesel up to B20.
LOW-MAINTENANCE DRIVE SYSTEM
Featuring a unique wheel motor design that delivers outstanding power with minimal maintenance, the Pelican can handle steep grades with no problem. Integrated sensors provide precise road speed measurement and adjust power requirements according to the load.
HEAVY-DUTY BRAKE SYSTEM
The Pelican features three caliper, power disc brakes and a dynamic braking design that significantly reduces wear on service brakes. All brake components are easy to access and economical to maintain.
HYDRAULIC SWEEP SYSTEM
Controlled by engine RPM and operated independently of ground speed and direction, the Pelican’s broom speed provides digging power at slow or zero ground speeds. A foot pedal controls speed and sweeper direction through the hydrostatic transmission.
The 35 in x 66 in (889 mm x 1676 mm) hydraulically driven polypropylene main broom features variable speed (variable with engine RPM) for optimal sweeping in changing conditions. To protect the broom mechanism, the broom raises automatically when the sweeper is reversed and is returned to its sweep position and previously set down pressure when a forward direction is resumed.
Hydraulically driven side brooms are rugged construction, 36 in (914 mm) in diameter and protrude up to 13 in (330 mm) beyond the outside of the tire while sweeping to capture more gutter debris.
NO-JAM DEBRIS CONVEYOR
The exclusive conveyor system features molded-in full width cleats that move large debris without jamming. High-strength belt material on the conveyor delivers long wear for maximum uptime. An optional built-in washdown provides quick and easy clean-up.
VARIABLE HEIGHT FRONT DUMP HOPPER
A corrosion-resistant polyethylene water tank supplies the dust suppression system with 220 gallons (833 L) of water. The exclusive Elgin water pump can run dry without damaging the machine’s water system. For operator convenience and ease of maintenance, a water-level gauge is visible from the cab.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE
Easy servicing lowers ownership costs and increases sweeper usage. O-ring face seal hydraulic fittings assure leak-free connections, while the electrical system’s weatherproof snap-together connectors and stamped color-coded wires allow for quick identification. To ensure easy monitoring of fluid levels, the hydraulic tank directly behind the cab features a sight glass inspection tube.
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.
The Pelican with optional dry dust control maintains all the popular features and sweeping performance that have made the Pelican the best selling three-wheel sweeper–without the use of water for dust suppression. This means increased pick-up of fine particles over traditional, wet dust control sweepers, proven reliable year-round sweeping and significant water conservation.
DRY DUST CONTROL SYSTEM
The Pelican with dry dust control features a patented system that includes a dust skirting system, dust separator in the hopper, and a dust control fan with a maintenance-free filter, working together to control fugitive dust without the use of spray water. The Pelican’s waterless dust control system means operators sweep more and spend less time filling tanks enhancing productivity.
PATENTED FILTRATION SYSTEM
The powerful vacuum system on the sweeper creates an air stream through the debris hopper, conveyor, and skirted areas. The inward rushing air carries the airborne dust into the debris hopper where it’s allowed to settle out with the rest of the swept debris. A majority of the fugitive dust falls into the hopper with only a fraction of the dust making it to the filter. When the filter becomes loaded, it can be mechanically cleaned with anon-board cleaning system so sweeping can continue. A long life, low maintenance, dry filter element is installed between the debris hopper and the fan.
LIFELINER HOPPER SYSTEM
The LifeLiner Hopper liner and finish system greatly improves the life, durability, and dumping functionality of a sweeper hopper. It is backed by a lifetime warranty.
Heavy-duty guards surround cab and protect sweeper by guiding low-hanging tree limbs up and over the Pelican. Available in right hand, left hand, or dual configuration.
