Garwood International releases Boschung’s Electric Compact Sweeper

As the newest sweeper in the Boschung product range, the Urban Sweeper S2.0 sets new standards in the two-cubic-metre class.

Distributed exclusively by Garwood International, the sweeper is the first Boschung-engineered sweeper fully powered by onboard batteries and has an eight-hour operating time which produces zero emissions.

The innovatively engineered battery defines a whole new intelligence management system, making the boundaries between work and charging times hard to discern.

The unit has articulated steering with oscillating suspension between front and rear frame for safe ascending and descending sidewalks.

Additionally, two 20-kilowatt wheel motors have the ability to reach top speeds of 45 kilometres per hour. The sweeper has a maximum payload weight of 1200 kilograms, an 800-millimetre suction mouth and sweeping width between 1150 and 2300 millimetres.

A walk-through cab for entering on both sides offers maximum operator comfort and security, while the central sweeping control console is easily operated with a single hand. Reverse and suction mouth cameras aid in safe and efficient operation.

Electrically driven wheel motors, broom motors and turbine motor require no active cooling, smaller construction and have the ability to provide dynamic charging while in free spin.

With the ability to recharge on car charging stations, and with the Supercharger option, the unit has a charging time of two hours for eight hours work.

Garwood International’s exclusive Vehicle Weigh Solutions range

Garwood International is the exclusive Australian and New Zealand dealer for the Vehicle Weighing Solutions range of weighing systems.

Products include Enviroweigh, LoadWeight and the Vehicle Overload Protection System (VOPS).

Garwood supplies the European licensed-for-trade EnviroWeigh system which is able to accurately weigh individual mobile garbage bins. The system allows for accuracy of 0.5 per cent or better during the normal loading cycle and there is no need to stop the lift cycle. The EnviroWeigh system provides individual bin weights while displaying a running total of collected weights, helping crews to prevent overloads.

The LoadWeigh is designed for high accuracy in rugged conditions and according to Garwood International, is the first choice for waste collectors.

The Vehicle Weighing Solutions weigher helps to manage overloads by measuring the weight of the vehicle and its payload, minimising damage to running gear, tyres and braking systems. Benefits include the ability to ascertain net, load, gross and axle weights as well as seamless integration to GPS/GPRS tracking systems.

Truck operators increase profits and protect investment by reducing the risk of running light and wasting money.

The VOPS 2 has been developed by Vehicle Weighing Solutions as a sophisticated yet simple solution that can be fitted to most types/categories of vehicle, whether the suspension is steel or air. It gives the driver accurate loading information when and where it is needed.

The VOPS 2 vehicle overload protection system aims to be an extremely reliable enclosed measurement system that does not rely on springs or moving parts.
