Product Overview

The Elgin® Pelican® broom sweeper is a three-wheel mechanical sweeper based on one of the original street sweeper designs, which has been continuously improved since 1914, meeting the highest sweeper standards. Maneuverability, visibility, economy, serviceability and single lane dumping with a sweep system that easily handles heavy compacted dirt and bulky debris are all features of the Elgin Pelican. An isolation-mounted cab provides a cleaner, quieter operation, and the improved 360-degree visibility and easier access for service and maintenance make the Elgin Pelican an industry leader in road sweepers.


The Pelican is also available with Elgin's innovative waterless dust control feature; allowing year round sweeping, sweeping with water conservation, and eliminates the use of water on reactive compounds like Portland cement.
