Koanda air circulation system reduces the emission of harmful particulate matter by up to 95%.
“Innovation inside” is the theme of the Schmidt Swingo 200+ compact sweeper. The patent-pending combination of the pressurised water recirculation system and the Koanda air circulation system, which will be presented at the IFAT 2016 for the first time, reduces the emission of harmful particulate matter by up to 95% and makes the Swingo 200+ the most environmentally friendly compact sweeper on the market. The water consumption and the noise level during sweeping operations are reduced significantly, permitting sweeping operations even at moderate sub-zero temperatures. Owing to the intelligent water system, the machine becomes even more efficient and eco-friendly than ever before – the need for time-consuming stops to refill water is eliminated, making extended sweeping operations possible.
The pressurised water recirculation system ensures large amounts of water in the suction system of the Swingo 200+, enabling reliable and low-wear collection of dirt. The optimum water recovery system guarantees compacted and semi-solid debris. The hopper capacity of 2 m3 is utilised optimally to guarantee the efficient handling of resources. The new system comes with a 190-l fresh water tank and a 190-l water recirculation tank (in the Euro6 variant: 170-l water recirculation tank). The tank can additionally transport up to 250 l of circulating water. The pressurised water recirculation system is fitted as standard in the 2- and 3-brush models. The Koanda air circulation system is available for the 3-brush model as an option.
A new high-performance suction nozzle (option) brings a significant increase in efficiency while reducing the suction fan speed, which, in turn, reduces the diesel engine output, saving up to 15% operating costs or 1 l of fuel per hour of operation. Assuming 1,500 hours of operation per year and a fuel price of € 1.30 per l, this yields savings of € 1,950 as well as 3,930 kg less CO2 emissions annually.
Footless driving – New control lever sets standards in compact sweeper
“Single-handed sweeping and driving” is the motto of the new control lever for the Swingo and Cleango sweepers, which is now available as an option. It permits the driver to simultaneously control the speed and operate the sweeping unit with one hand. Dangling legs can now be taken literally, because “footless” driving offers a one-of-a-kind driving experience.
Moreover, the worldwide unique height- and tilt-adjustable steering column incl. swivelling function sets new standards in the class of compact sweepers, permitting ergonomic entry and exit as well as a comfortable sitting position even for tall drivers.
