Werk-Brau has introduced hydraulically driven wheel loader angle brooms for cleaning and clearing snow, dirt, debris, grass and more.
They are available in 8-, 10-, and 12-foot widths, each with 30 degrees of swing left or right of centre. A polypropylene brush with wire filaments provides long service life even in adverse conditions.
The 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. Sight indicator flags are provided for safety.
Broom speeds of up to 250 RPM are attainable, depending on the prime mover.
Werk-Brau Angle Brooms are American-made and some models are stocked for immediate shipment.
The wafer style brush has 32” outside diameter (OD) x 10” inside diameter (ID). The brush core can be installed with either end to the left/right with no effect on sweeping performance, to simplify installation. Both the brush and core assembly can be removed from frame without disconnecting drive motor hoses.
The brush hood is manufactured from 16-gauge steel with formed edge fold for additional strength. The end plates are 12-gauge steel. Brush hood covers 140-degrees of brush and includes pre-drilled holes for easy installation of front deflector. Dirt deflectors are standard on all models.
Brooms are 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” poly hexagonal hub.
The motor is mounted outside of brush frame and is protected by formed ¼-inch guards. Hoses are provided from hydraulic motor to bulkhead or valve on broom. A spring system to dampen transportation bounce is included.
The brooms are finished in a black polyurethane topcoat with epoxy primer for protection from the elements. The steel surface undergoes a phosphatizing acid bath to clean and etch the surface for superior adhesion of primer and paint.
Optional accessories include dual low flow drive motors, electric/hydraulic swing, dirt deflector, 90-gallon brush-hood-mounted sprinkler system, front spray bar only with nozzles, and an oil cooler with fan (40 gpm max).
Werk-Brau manufactures OEM and replacement attachments for excavators, mini excavators, backhoes, mini and full-size loaders, crawler loaders, and skid steers.
