Elgin Sweeper Changes Future of Street Sweeping with New Twist on Single-Engine Technology for Crosswind® Sweeper

ELGIN, Ill. (Jan. 9, 2018) – Elgin Sweeper, the leading manufacturer of street sweepers, today introduced an innovative single-engine configuration of its popular Crosswind® regenerative air sweeper used for cleaning large, paved areas such as streets, parking lots and airport runways. A variable-speed device installed between the chassis engine and transmission on the new configuration allows the engine to simultaneously power both the truck and the sweeper.

“Until now, single-engine air sweeper technology required a cumbersome multi-step process to switch between road and work modes,” said Mike Higgins, vice president and general manager of Elgin Sweeper. “With the single-engine Crosswind sweeper configuration, Elgin Sweeper is radically changing sweepers for good. More municipalities and contractors are embracing the single-engine Crosswind for their street sweeping needs.”
