High Speed Runway
Many airports maintain sweepers for their high-speed runway sweeping and other airport sweeping to keep runways free of foreign object debris. The most important features of these sweepers are the ability to sweep large, flat surfaces at high speed and be capable of picking up the typical material found on runways, like pea gravel, sand, small metal object, such as nuts and bolts, and pieces of vegetation.
The Elgin Crosswind and Crosswind FSX are both excellent options for runway sweeping with the large regenerative air pick up head ideally suited for flat surfaces. The Crosswind FSX is equipped with a specially designed head for fast, flat surface sweeping applications. Both sweepers can be equipped with poly side brooms, a powerful side air blast to blow material off a runway and away from any runway lighting.
