Superior performance and maximum maneuverability: They’re two great advantages offered by the best in municipal sweepers.
Schwarze Industries offers one of the most comprehensive sweeper lines in the industry, including models for parking area cleaning, airport runway sweeping, street sweeping, milling cleanup and stormwater runoff management. The company has been a leader for 40 years in innovative and quality products for the street sweeper industry, and excels at incorporating new technology and customer demands into what it offers its loyal customers. That’s about to translate into a machine that does a great job even faster than before, and can handle some heavy lifting to boot.
The new Schwarze A4 Storm goes beyond the existing A4 Storm to a whole new level. The A4 Storm was launched in 1998 to fill a unique niche between the A7 Tornado street sweeper and the SuperVac Gale Force heavy-duty parking lot sweeper.
The current A4 Storm contains some of the heavy-duty parking lot sweeper’s attributes, like size and maneuverability, but has also adopted the ability to sweep heavier materials in multiple applications.
The new A4 Storm has a new high-performance sweep head and fan housing that are both exact scale-models of the A7 Tornado. The hopper, while retaining the mid-dump style, now dumps at a full 77 inches. The previous models’ metal toolboxes are replaced with larger, corrosion-resistant polymer toolboxes; and the standard water system can be supplemented with an optional additional 45-gallon tank, taking the unit’s capacity from 130 gallons to 175 gallons. A secondary screen access door allows easy screen cleaning from outside of the hopper.
On dual steer units, the control console mounting has been redesigned to allow better access and ergonomics when operating from either the right or left side operator position.
When it comes to features and performance, the A4 Storm meets or exceeds all similar competitor models in key performance categories, including dump height, water capacity, broom size, sweep width, ergonomics and, above all, sweeping performance.
With its short wheelbase, high maneuverability and full-size sweeper performance, the A4 Storm is uniquely positioned to excel at construction site cleanup where space is limited. In municipal applications it can operate in heavy spring cleanup or curb and gutter cleaning in limited space areas, such as town squares and malls. Of course, with its 70 mph travel speed, getting to distant job sites quicker is also possible.
The new A4 Storm is truly a full-size street sweeper in a compact, super-maneuverable package. The A4 is the optimal municipal and contractor street sweeper wherever heavy spring cleanup and construction performance is needed but size and maneuverability are critical. The A4 Storm may also be operated without any special licenses, making it the perfect choice for contractors without a full CDL work force.
