The design brief for the Merlin-XP was to create a road sweeper capable of extracting maximum efficiency and performance when mounted on a 7.5 tonne truck chassis. Because an auxiliary diesel engine pack only compromised an already precious payload capacity, we decided to rely on Scarab’s environmentally-friendly and well-proven Hydrostatic powerered sweeping system. This decision allowed us to maximise both hopper and water capacity while maintaining good weight distribution at all times. In standard trim, the Merlin XP’s 900 litre water tank, 5.5 m3 hopper and potential payload performance of between 2100 and 2300 kg, compares more than favourably with any other 7.5 tonne based street sweeper with the advantages of low fuel costs, low emissions.
The Merlin XP road sweeper can be fitted to a wide choice of chassis from DAF, Iveco, MAN, Mercedes, Volvo, Renault, Hino and UD.
For details of these and other suitable chassis specifications, please contact our sales department.
Scarab can justifiably claim to be the champion behind the modernday success of the truck-mounted sweeper powered from a Single Engine.
Operating the whole machine from the engine of the truck chassis provides many advantages, for example:
• Less fuel consumption
• Lower noise
• Lower engine emissions
• Less maintenance & downtime
• Greater payload
A Scarab designed hydrostatic gearbox is installed in the chassis driveline to exactly suit any customers’ chassis and application. Hydrostatic drive, plus a simple joystick control for Forward and Reverse, allows single-pedal control reducing fatigue and enabling the driver to fully concentrate on sweeping.
Scarab’s CANbus control system has revolutionised the way sweepers are operated and maintained.
Intuitive controls and a conveniently positioned colour monitor provide comprehensive levels of feedback to both operating and service personnel.
A graphical display indicates the sweeping configuration and conditions of the vehicle systems including warnings and regular service reminders. Real-time monitoring and datalogging provides valuable assistance in resolving problems and achieving optimum machine performance.
Scarab CANbus includes universal connectors for fitment of Global positioning System (GPS) and the option of real-time data via telematic up-link.
A conveniently positioned colour monitor displays operating information in graphical form and enables the driver and service personnel to scroll through a number of screens to display and adjust vehicle set-up.
