The Merlin can be fitted to a wide choice of chassis including those from DAF, Iveco, MAN, Mercedes, Volvo, Renault, Hino and UD.
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, for example:
Hydrostatic Single Engine
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.
Unidrive Single Engine
The sweeping equipment is powered from a Power Take Off (PTO) fitted to the truck engine. The Magnum control system manages engine speed to ensure optimum sweeping performance. The sweeper is usually operated in a low gear for slow speed. An optional reduction gearbox is available where necessary.
Scarab’s CANbus control system has revolutionised the way sweepers are operated and maintained.
Intuitive controls and a conveniently positioned colour monitor provide comprehensive levels of feedback to both operating and service personnel.
A graphical display indicates the sweeping configuration and conditions of the vehicle systems including warnings and regular service reminders. Real-time monitoring and datalogging provides valuable assistance in resolving problems and achieving optimum machine performance.
Scarab CANbus includes universal connectors for fitment of Global positioning System (GPS) and the option of real-time data via telematic up-link.
