Schwarze A8 Twister Street Sweeper

Schwarze A8 Twister Street Sweeper

The Schwarze A8 Twister is remarkable for its ability to empty its hopper anywhere from 2′ to 12′ high. Easy side emptying into dump trucks makes the Twister perfect for roadway construction work. Or dump a bit lower into roll off containers without spillage. Perfect for cities that stage containers at strategic locations rather than require the sweeper to make multiple trips to a landfill. It exceeds the capacities of all others in its class with a 134 HP auxiliary engine, an 8.4 cubic yard hopper, 56 degree dump angle, 44″ gutter brooms, up to 600 gallon water capacity and 25% more spray nozzles.
