A8 Twister

Model Specs
6.0 Yard High Dump

The Schwarze A8 Twister offers a generous 6-cubic yard, fully stainless steel hopper and full range dump heights from 2’ to 12’. The new dump system utilizes the proven Schwarze scissors lift that has been used for many years on the M6 Avalanche. The A8 Twister has the capability of low dumping without any stabilizer deployment. This means that the new A8 Twister, with its 6-yard capacity, can carry and offload just as fast as some popular low dump regenerative air models. The new A8 Twister is like having two machines in one.

Patent Pending Single Engine Configuration

The Schwarze A8 Twister SE has no performance compromise from its twin engine version and can perform most typical sweeping at a low single engine speeds allowing for low noise and operational costs. When full power is needed for heavy jobs like construction and spring cleanup the A8 Twister SE comes through with the same amount of sweep power available on the twin engine A8 Twister. Designed to operate exactly like the twin engine model, little if any additional operator and technician training is required.

Increased broom surface area enables transfer of materials from a greater distance from the sweeping head.Recessed Gutter Broom Discs Lowers cost of operation by reducing twine to wrap on GB motor.
In Cab 27 Degree Hydraulic Allows on-the-fly gutter broom adjustments from cabVariable speed gutter brooms allow matching the broom speed to the aux engine and to the job.
Optional Gutter Broom Extension Override℠ (GEO℠) Increased usability of gutter brooms, and expandsVersatility in various applications. While eliminating the need for a center broom.
Optional in-cab gutter broom down pressure allows on the fly broom down pressure adjustmentAngled Rubber Blast Orifice pickup head Increases debris transfer while enabling high speed sweeping
90×36″ Sweeping Head for Increased Productivity with a larger area of surface cleaning (quicker transfer, no bulldozing)Schwarze exclusive “sweeps in reverse” head allows sweeping access where others can’t.
Optional pickup head deluge for easy head cleaning.Optional Broom in head for surface scrubbing
Bolt in Replaceable head transitionsProven scissor lift hopper lift has the highest hopper dump in the industry at 12’. Can off load into even the highest of trucks.
True debris capacity (5 cu yard) as large as some ground dump sweepers. Longer sweep time between offloads even if driven to the dumpsite.Bolt in Pressure and Transition Tubes for longer life expectancy; reduced cost of ownership
High flow lift system allows fast dump cycle speeds.Abrasion resistant high strength stainless Steel for lower cost operation
Standard lifetime warranty hopper for low cost of operation.29,000 Cubic Inch, Self-Cleaning, centrifugal and torturous path Circular Dust Separator eliminates the need for the operator to enter the confined debris body when cleaning the separator.
Saw tooth Screens for increased screen surface area creates more productivity, and increases debris separation reducing carryover wear and lowers cost of operation.14″ Suction and pressure Blast Tubes reduced clogging, increased pickup capability.
