Quiet, efficient power in a self-contained unit.


The quiet, low-emission Cummins QSB 3.3 ROW engine was selected for its ability to provide ample power at low RPM. Its position, between hopper and cab, affords ease of access for servicing. All engine filters and main service points can be reached from the large working platform or by additionally removing the forward easy-access panel.


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.

Powerful & Reliable Suction Performance

A stainless steel 800mm roof mounted impeller positioned to produce an efficient airflow path for high suction performance and reduced power consumption. Particulate screening via a hinged, stainless steel mesh filter is pleated to give maximum surface area and reduce blocking - it also swings down for ease of cleaning. Furthermore, the fan chamber is also easily accessed for cleaning.

Extensive Sweeping Configuration

M6 Sweeping

The M6 is available in both single and optional dual sweep configuration. When the suction nozzle, side brush and widesweep functions are in operation the M6 can sweep at a 2505mm width. However, the brushes can reach an impressive 3200mm span when simultaneously dual sweeping.

With variable brush speeeds, optional down pressure and swivelling widesweep, the M6 is proficient in any sweeping application.

Strong, Robust Hopper

The hopper is completely manufactured from strong, corrosion and abrasion-resistant 4003 Stainless Steel, which is shot blasted before a two-pack epoxy primer is applied followed by a hard-wearing topcoat.

The hopper is fitted with lockers on both sides for additional storage. Particulate screening via a hinged stainless-steel mesh filter – swings down for ease of cleaning and access to the stainless-steel inlet cone

Total, Intuitive Control
