The Crosswind with single-engine technology has been validated by Elgin and users after several years; accomplishing the removal of ever increasing complexity with auxiliary engines and their associated aftertreatment systems. This technology is superior to any other single-engine air sweeper technology available today. The Elgin single-engine system sandwiches a variable speed device between the truck engine and the Allison automatic transmission. This allows the truck engine to deliver high power to the sweeper system during operation. The new single-engine technology used in the Crosswind has accomplished the performance expectations typical with twin-engine systems while introducing multiple value propositions unique to this platform.
Singular push-button control for “Road Mode” & “Work Mode”
On-the-fly control; no need to engage parking brake
Intuitive controls – easy to learn and use
‘We don’t have to worry about the emissions complexity, it eliminates untimely regenerations and cost avoidance with missed auxiliary engine regenerations!’
The unit is quieter; the second engine isn’t there and you just don’t have that noise and vibration anymore!
A very reliable drive system that reduces operation and maintenance expense while promoting a simplified user friendly operator environment.
There’s less maintenance, no more aux engine regenerations, no more cleaning the particulate trap, my operations are more productive – I’ll capture my return on investment after two years!
