Summary: Enclosed-cab Exterra® rider sweeper from Advance®

The enclosed-cab Exterra® rider sweeper from Advance® features an integrated dust-suppression system that minimizes dust at the side brooms to create an extra-wide, 77-inch, dust-controlled sweeping path. Exterra’s patented DustClear™ system uses a dust-suppressing fog around the side brooms – where conventional sweepers kick up the most dust. The DustClear system allows full-time side broom use so sweeping productivity is increased by up to 71 percent over other machines without side-broom dust control.

The new enclosed-cab option is available with heat and/or air-conditioning to keep the operator comfortable in all environments. The cab is designed with Advance’s unique Clear-View™ feature that gives the operator a clear line of sight to the side broom and the front of the sweeper, without leaning over.

The Exterra combines a 50-inch wide main broom and two dust-controlled side brooms for a 77-inch total sweeping path, making the machine efficient for cleaning warehouses and manufacturing facilities, as well as indoor and outdoor parking areas. Both LP and diesel-powered models are available. In addition to the side-broom dust control system, the machine’s main filter system features 94 square feet of nanofiber-technology filter material to capture 98-plus percent of dust particles from 0.3 to 10 microns.

Operating the Exterra sweeper is easy with One-Touch™ controls and a single foot-pedal for controlling speed, direction and broom activation. The hopper safety arm is controlled from the operator compartment so it is not necessary to leave the seat. A return-to-idle feature conserves fuel and reduces total emissions, and the sweeper’s MaxAccess™ design facilitates fast maintenance for less downtime and higher productivity.
