Broom Assist Pick-Up Head
The TYMCO Model DST-6 pick-up head has a width of 87 inches and is equipped with a broom in the pick-up head for applications where a broom is desired. The fast rotation of the broom loosens packed-on debris and projects it into the Regenerative Air stream for effective cleaning.
With in-cab controls that allow broom-assisted sweeping only when needed, the operator can lift the broom out of service for regular use of the powerful Regenerative Air system.
The Model DST-6 hopper is over 7.3 cubic yards in size with a useable capacity of over 6 cubic yards. Stationary hopper dumping system designed for safe, simple dumping and low maintenance.
This eliminates dumping cylinders and hoist, hydraulic controlled door latch assemblies, additional hydraulic door opening cylinders, grease zerks, and safety concerns such as pinch points and overhead clearance issues.
Gets debris out of the curb/gutter with large 43″ diameter gutter brooms with in-cab control. Tilt gutter broom allows you to reach down into the deepest gutters.
TYMCO’s large 43″ gutter broom design has a pressure-sensing sequence valve to automatically determine the digging pressure needed for different debris; therefore, customers get maximum broom bristle life and cleaning performance.
From inside the cab, the operator can control the speed of the gutter brooms. This allows the operator to match the speed of the truck while sweeping to lessen the least amount of dust being kicked up.
TYMCO incorporates a high efficiency multi-pass cylindrical centrifugal dust separator for maximum particulate separation and sweeping performance. Designed for easy clean out and maintenance.
On board 220 gallons of water for dust control around the gutter brooms and inside the hopper. For below freezing conditions, the sweeper will continue sweeping dustless without using water.
The small amount of air that is diverted from the system to achieve the dustless effect is filtered through TYMCO’s patented DST system. The DST System will filter the diverted air through a pre-cleaner and cartridge filters. These filters have been determined through independent laboratory testing using the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) 52.2 testing standards to have a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) 16 Rating, meaning they are able to capture a minimum of 95% of 0.30 micron and larger size particles. That is 1/200 of the diameter of a human hair! The best part is that both the pre-cleaner and cartridge filters are washable, ensuring long service life.
The Model DST-6 sweeper is powered by a 99 horsepower John Deere auxiliary engine. This engine powers all hydraulic functions through a gear driven pump and directly belt drives the blower wheel.
We use a natural rubber coated aluminum blower wheel which we have found ti be abrasion resistant as well as reduces fuel consumption because of its lightweight design.
