Scarab Merlin roadsweeper in the city of london

Scarab Merlin Road Sweeper - 10 to 16 Tonne GVW

Single Engine - Hydrostatic

The Scarab Merlin road sweeper is equally at home in municipal, urban or contracting activities, having been designed for mounting on a truck chassis in the 10 - 16 tonne GVW range, giving a potential payload of up to 7800 kg.
The Scarab designed hydrostatic system combines with our CANbus control system means this single engine road sweeper is easy to use, with a constant sweeping speed from zero up to 15-20mph whilst the chassis engine runs at an optimal 1200RPM this ensures long life, low fuel consumption and low emissions whilst still providing powerful suction performance.

CNG Powered Single Engine - Hydrostatic

The single-engine Scarab Merlin mounted onto a CNG chassis satisfies the need to have a street cleansing machine that operates solely on alternative fuel whilst also giving the benefits of reduced fuel costs combined with lower servicing and chassis maintenance costs. The Merlin CNG constitutes an economic, up-to-date and dependable alternative to diesel vehicles, improving both acoustic and gaseous emissions simultaneously.

The hybridization of Scarab's single engine design and CNG power arguably creates the cleanest truck mount sweeper available on the road today.

The Merlin can be fitted to a wide choice of chassis including those 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 modern day success of the truck-mounted street sweeper powered from a Single Engine. Operating the whole machine from the engine of the truck chassis provides many advantages:

• Diesel Free Sweeping (CNG)
• Less fuel consumption
• Lower noise
• Lower engine emissions
• Less maintenance & downtime
• Greater payload

Hydrostatic roadsweeper

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.
