Ohio, U.S.-based company Werk-Brau has rolled out its newest product, a hydraulically driven wheel loader angle broom that is ideal for cleaning and clearing of snow, dirt, debris, grass and more for a number of applications.
They are available in 8-, 10-, and 12-foot widths, each with 30 degrees of swing left or right of center. A polypropylene brush with wire filaments provides long service life even in adverse conditions.
Hydraulically driven brooms are powered by a standard dual hydraulic motor capable of 28-40 gpm flow (standard), with dual hydraulic motors for low flow (16-24 gpm), or high flow (40-60 gpm) motor available as options. A loader mounting kit is provided along with a storage stand for simple mounting, dis-mounting, and storage.
Broom speeds of up to 250 RPM are attainable, depending on the prime mover, making this Angle Broom an ideal attachment for wheel loaders of all makes, models and sizes.
Werk-Brau Angle Brooms are American-made and available with industry leading lead-times; some models are stocked for immediate shipment. Wafer style brush has 32-inch outside diameter (OD) x 10-in. inside diameter (ID). Brush core can be installed with either end to the left/right with no effect on sweeping performance, to simplify installation. Brush and core assembly can be removed from the frame without disconnecting drive motor hoses.
The brush hood is manufactured from 16-gauge steel with formed edge fold for additional strength, with robust end plates of 12-gauge steel for more durability. The rush hood covers 140 degrees of brush and includes pre-drilled holes for easy installation of front deflector, and dirt deflectors are standard on all models.
The brooms come standard with a single, low-speed, high-torque, 18-cid hydraulic motor. Motors are coupled directly to the brush core through a 5 5/16-in. poly hexagonal hub, and the motor is mounted outside of the brush frame and is protected by formed ¼-in. guards.
Hoses are provided from hydraulic motor to bulkhead or valve on broom; customer must supply hoses from bulkhead or valve to prime mover. A spring system to dampen transportation bounce is included.
Werk-Brau manufactures a complete line of OEM and replacement attachments for excavators, mini excavators, backhoes, mini and full-size loaders, crawler loaders and skid steers.
