About - Scarab, a brief introduction


Scarab was founded in 1979 and from the UK Headquarters and Manufacturing Centre we offer a wide range of compact and truck-mounted road sweepers with excellent build quality, superior performance, optimum payload and capacity, all complemented by minimal noise and exhaust pollution.


We are a global supplier with a distribution network around the world, we can provide stock road sweepers with a wide choice of common options or if you require something a little out of the ordinary by working with our design team we can give you the bespoke vehicle of your choice.


At Scarab we like to innovate and push technology and the sweeping industry forward. Scarab were the pioneers of the environmentally friendly single-engine truck mounted sweeper and continue to dominate the market in this field, we also were the first road sweeper manufacturer to supply all our sweepers with a CANbus control and diagnostics system we are now on the third generation of CANbus systems. We are proud to say we innovate while others copy.


Our After Sales Service is second to none and we constantly strive to keep customers our number one priority, we provide a full range of product support, including operator and technician training as well as contract maintenance packages to keep your vehicles at their best.


We offer a variety of truck mounted road sweepers all are capable of being mounted on a chassis of your choice with a choice of power sources to precisely suit an individual customer’s needs. Having pioneered the use of Hydrostatic Technology and later developing the Unidrive PTO concept, Scarab Sweepers are proud to be the world’s largest manufacturer in the Single Engine field. To complement this success, Scarab have also created an excellent reputation for twin-drive sweepers the Mistral, M6 and more recently the M65T which has been designed with features to enable it to be easily and rapidly mounted on virtually any internationally available chassis.


Our Compact cleansing range includes the Scarab Minor M25H with its unique ability to combine the small dimensions of a ‘compact sweeper’ and a 4 brush sweeping system whilst still maintaining the power and performance of a truck mount.
Our compact range also includes the Scarab Azura ,  a 2 front brush mounted sweeper now complete with Euro 5 power plant and numerous revisions that further enhance its exceptional abilities. High amongst these improvements are increased hopper capacity and enhanced functionality, features shared with the Aquazura & Aquadyne; a scrubber-dryer & street-washer, all based around the same unique 4–wheel steer compact chassis, which is both economical and quiet. It is perfectly suited to the rigours of modern urban street cleaning.


Scarab has a reputation for listening and reacting to customer’s needs and possess a willingness to explore and embrace new technology. Scarab was the first company in the world to successfully introduce CANbus control technology across their whole range, further improving reliability by simplifying the operating systems, improving vehicle ergonomics, and reducing maintenance.


Scarab are proud to be the World’s leading manufacturer of environmentally sensitive sweeping vehicles and produce a range of products that not only fulfil customer’s operational needs but give additional environmental benefits and reduce the on-going operational costs of that equipment over its considerable lifespan.
