Merlin 55

A full-feature 5.5 cubic metre sweeper on a 7.5-tonne chassis.

Favoured by many municipal and contracting operators, the Merlin 55 is the most effective road sweeper available in the 7.5/8.0 tonne GVW range.

The Merlin 55 boasts a payload performance that is a premium in this class. Scarab’s industry-leading single-engine system delivers a significant advantage over any auxiliary-engine powered sweepers on the same chassis.

Furthermore, thanks to the innovative design, this system affords the Merlin 55 to use a range of powerful sweeping options, such as dual-sweep and high-pressure water, and a 900-litre water tank – without compromising the weight or performance of the machine.

Single engine, single emission, no compromise

Single engine, single emission, no compromise

Scarab can justifiably claim to be the pioneer of the truck-mounted sweeper powered from a single-engine.

Operating the whole machine from the engine of the truck chassis provides many advantages, including reduced fuel consumption, decreased noise and engine pollution, less weight, greater payload and reduced maintenance.

Flexible, truck-mounted solutions

Hydrostatic System:

The Scarab designed hydrostatic gearbox is installed in the chassis driveline and allows the sweeping components to be powered directly from the chassis engine. As well bringing a range of benefits such as reduced weight, increased payload, reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions, it also offers a range of operator benefits with its simple joystick control for Forward and Reverse, allowing single-pedal control which reduces fatigue and enables the driver to fully concentrate on sweeping.

Powerful & Reliable Suction Performance

A stainless steel 905.5mm roof-mounted impellor 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 Capabilities

M55 Sweeping

The Merlin 55 is available in both single and optional dual sweep configuration. When the suction nozzle, side brush and Widesweep functions are in operation the Merlin 55 can sweep at a 2290mm width. However, the brushes can reach an impressive 2850mm span when simultaneously dual sweeping.

With variable brush speeds, optional down pressure and swivelling widesweep, the Merlin 55 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.

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

CANbus Control

The CANbus control system has revolutionised the way Scarab sweepers are operated and maintained. Intuitive controls and a colour monitor provide comprehensive feedback to both the driver and service team.

The clear display indicates the sweeping configuration, vehicle condition and highlights both warnings and service reminders. Our real-time monitoring and data-logging provide valuable assistance in troubleshooting technical problems and helps keep your machine running at its most efficient.
