Elastomerics assist compact sweeper design 06 January 2012

Cushyfloat elastomeric engine mounts from Trelleborg Industrial AVS have been chosen by Max Holder for its new C250 and C270 street sweepers.

The company cites the product's high-capacity performance, long service life and compact packaging as key factors determining its decison.

Trelleborg industrial AVS sales manager Michael Rösler explains that Max Holder's sweepers are used in a variety of duties, ranging from snow-clearing to street sweeping, mowing and hedge clipping.

The design is extremely compact, he adds, with a total width of 110cm and a height of less than two metres.

So, in the very limited space available for the three-point axle suspension system, the Cushyfloats, combined with VP bushes mounted between the chassis frame and the hydrostatic engine, provide stability and good anti-vibration performance.

"We are very proud to have assisted Max Holder with this machine, as it presented our applications engineers with an interesting challenge," comments Rösler.

Both sweepers have a maximum speed of 40kph and lifting capacity of 1,100kg. Each is compatible with a wide range of tools and accessory equipment.

They have both front and rear lifting capability and the C250 has been designed to move in three dimensions.
