The M6 has been designed for
operators who prefer a twin-engine configuration but who also wish to benefit from the very best in road sweeper technology.

All the qualities that make Scarab the street sweeper of choice for so many operators are incorporated in the M6.

The simple fluid power system and Scarab’s industry leading CANbus control reduce ownership costs and maximise reliability.


The low-emission engine was selected for its ability to provide ample power at low revolutions. Its position, between hopper and water tank, reduces in-cab noise levels and also facilitates ease of servicing, with all engine filters and service points being accessible from the large working platform.

Cummins Auxiliary Engine

Hydraulic System
The Scarab fluid drive system is directly coupled to the auxiliary engine. By eliminating drive belts, gearboxes and flywheel couplings, it ensures quiet, efficient sweeping and suction performance and a high degree of reliability.

All the hydraulic control components are housed in a secure locker.

Scarab’s CANbus control system has revolutionised the way road 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.
