Bicester Sweepers have just taken delivery of a Scarab Magnum Hydrostatic mounted on an 18 ton MAN sleep cab chassis; this new sweeper joins a growing fleet of Scarab truck-mounted sweepers which includes two Scarab Magnum Hydrostatics and a twin engine Scarab Mistral.
Their latest Magnum is fitted with the new Scarab high speed fan option which gives up to 40% more suction performance, due to the additional power the fan creates a newly designed and strengthened 7.2 meter hopper is supplied which gives an impressive 7.5 tonne payload. The Magnum has been and fitted with many options including an auxiliary channel brush mounted on the near side, overhead suction boom, high-pressure power wash and a high powered Scarab Hydrostatic gearbox.
Robert Herring the Managing Director of Bicester Sweepers has been running a fleet of Road sweepers for many years and until recently used twin engine sweepers from another manufacturer, one of Robert’s hobbies is steam engines from a bygone age and he sees the single engine design of the Magnum as the modern future in road sweepers.
Being a Hydrostatic the Scarab Magnum makes very good use of the 250 BHP MAN engine to power the sweeper. The engine can be run as low as 1100 RPM which is right at the bottom of the green band and works extremely well on the new Euro 6 engines.
Scarab would like to thank Robert, Ann and Nick Herring at Bicester Sweepers for their continued custom.
