Road sweeper truck The road sweeper truck is a road maintenance machine. As its name suggests, it is intended for sweeping, but not only: it also has the function of moistening the floors, vacuuming and washing the pavement. A sweeper truck is equipped with rotating brushes, a tank and a vacuum system.
The criteria for choosing a sweeper truck are the sweeping surface, the type of propulsion (not all are equal in terms of noise and pollution) and the type of sweeping: axial by offset brush or front by high pressure ramp.
The main manufacturers of sweeper trucks are Schmidt, Mathieu, Hako, Eurovoirie, Scarab or Faun. The sweepers can also be installed on Renault or Iveco chassis. The most recent models meet the emission standard for fine particles PM10 (particles with a diameter of less than 10 microns).
