This powerful rapid snow removal vehicle consists of a fan type blower, hydrostatically operated front mounted broom, and side brooms for rail and third rail clean up. Powered by a 280 kW (375 hp) Diesel engine, the blower has a snow clearing capacity of up to 3,000 tons per hour and can cast snow left or right to a distance of up to 38 m (125 ft). The maximum discharge angle through the drum is 30° to the left and a flat discharge to the right. The self‑contained unit can be operated from inside the cab carrier vehicle via a plug-in remote controlled panel. The snow sweeper is hydrostatically driven by a heavy‑duty hydraulic motor with cab mounted rotary speed control. Its lifting height is fully adjustable for maximum utilization and versatility. A self-propelled unit is also available.
