Versatile Vacall™ AllSweep Models Lead Industry in Maximum Air Flow Capacity

New Philadelphia, OH — An independent test shows Vacall’s AllSweep has the greatest air flow capacity when compared with all vacuum sweepers designed to clean up runways, parking lots, event venues, highway millings and streets.

Testing showed AllSweep's centrifugal fan is capable of producing a maximum air flow of 31,000 CFM, thanks to a unique design by Gradall Industries.

"We are confident that our exclusive collection of productivity features, along with superior vacuum force capabilities, makes the AllSweep the top-of-the-line sweeper choice for both governments and contractors," said Bill Petrole, vice president of Vacall products for Gradall Industries.

Among the AllSweep's other advantages is the industry's widest sweep path and a single-engine design, which eliminates overall cost, service, fuel consumption and emissions associated with dual-engine sweepers.

The wider sweep width capability – actually, wider than the width of the chassis – can make shorter work of big jobs. Either single or dual sweep systems are available, as well as full-width nozzles and gutter brooms to collect litter, stones, asphalt millings and debris. Another operator efficiency advantage is a new position memory feature to raise and then restore nozzle height when encountering curbs, speed bumps and other obstacles.

When in use, a new hydrostatic drive system controls chassis travel speed while maintaining a specific RPM level to deliver consistent hydraulic power, water flow, vacuum forces and other cleanup functions – a revolutionary concept to assure excellent performance for multi-function equipment using a single engine.

AllSweep models also are equipped with catch basin cleaner hoses, adding to the versatility of the machines. When not in use, the high-power vacuum hose, boom and tubes (which are available in various sizes) fold compactly against the tailgate, which opens, closes and locks hydraulically, speeding up the dumping process.

A color LCD display screen clearly displays machine performance through AllSweep’s AllSmartFlow™ CAN bus control system. The control system allows for more precise water flow and vacuum adjustments and is available with a fully proportional pendant, either wired or wireless, to make productive control away from the chassis possible.

The rugged debris tank hopper, which is strengthened with reinforced steel to withstand the abuse daily tasks may provide, is available in various capacities. All tanks have a durable powder coat finish; optional stainless steel tanks have a lifetime warranty. And with the optional catch basin attachment, the AllSweep is one machine with multiple uses.

Additional features include: a water system with up to 600-gallon capacity which allows for longer runs and less time spent re-filling; a new silencer to reduce noise during operation; and a hydraulic system with easily accessible, ground-level gauges and filters.
