"CONCEPT TO CONCRETE" DEVELOPMENT OF A TRUCK TYPE STREET SWEEPER

A new truck type street sweeper has been developed which incorporates some of the sweeping advantages of a three wheeled sweeper (tricycle steer) and the transport advantages of a legal highway truck. It offers major productivity improvements through better operator environment and decrease of nonsweeping time in the operational cycle. It is possible for a small "short line" special purpose vehicle manufacturer to develop, test, and produce such a vehicle and meet Federal regulatory requirements with limited "In house" design and testing facilities. Here this was accomplished through judicious augmentation by outside specialized design and testing organizations.
