Product Overview

Elgin regenerative air sweepers give contractors, municipalities and airports a powerful sweeper with versatility and productivity. The Elgin® Crosswind1® efficiently cleans large flat paved areas such as streets, parking lots, and airport runways. Mounted on the short-wheelbase of either conventional or cab-over chassis, the Elgin Crosswind1 is operated by simple rocker switches and equipped with all the essentials to get the job done right. A combination of large 8 yd3 (6 m3) hopper and 240 gal (908 L) water tank, plus excellent fuel efficiency, allow maximum productivity between trips to dumping, re-watering and fueling.


The Crosswind1 is available as an optional alternative fuel sweeper using Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). The Crosswind1 sweeper is also effective in frequent maintenance of permeable pavement. This sweeper is versatile and can easily pick up litter and chip seal. The large pickup head makes it desirable for many applications.
