Street Sweeper Caltrans Test

In 1990, the California Department of Transportation introduced what is now known in the sweeper industry as the toughest sweeper performance test in North America. The purpose of the test was to allow Caltrans a means of selecting only the sweepers that were tough and reliable enough to meet the brutal demands of sweeping more than 16,000 miles of the most diverse highways in the world—stretching to California’s borders with Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. The street sweepers that successfully completed all tests were put into service, sweeping the winding High Sierras, performing post winter clean up and cleaning the wind blown desert roads and highways throughout the entire state.

Caltrans staff conducted the test like this:


15% moistened sand was spread over a chosen test site, to a maximum depth of 1 1/2.”

Sufficient sand to cover a 100 ft. long track was spread so that one full hopper load could be swept up in a single continuous pass.

The sweeper was required to take five separate tests and comply with the following requirements:

1.      Sweep a width of not less than ten feet with both gutter broom operating.
2.       Pick up not less than 90% of a sand from the swept path.
3.       Fill the hopper with a minimum of three cubic yards.
4.       Be randomly stopped twice, all sweep gear switched off, be re-started and continue with no Stalling or jamming of brooms or conveyor system at any time.
Global/Allianz is the only manufacturer ever to pass this test each and every time!

Finding the right street sweeper to do the job can be a difficult task. Street sweepers, just like other tools, are meant to do one job– clean and sanitize the streets. Global offers two purpose built street sweepers– The “maneuverable” Global M3 and the “Quick” Global M4.     Why Purpose Built?

Every tool in our tool box has a specific purpose, and a specific function. We understand that our customers recognize reliability, innovation and performance.

Lets face it, if you build a street sweeper on a chassis, your stuck with just that! Street Sweeper is attached to the frame, everything is hanging from the back, two engines, more maintenance, not to mention absolutely no maneuverability, and who does the warranty work?

Our Global M4 Street Sweeper is designed and built from the ground up! One Stop Shop Warranty, 18’ Turning Radius means safe street sweeping on busy city streets. Only One Engine means lower fuel consumption and less maintenance. Ohhh...the operator sits right in the front–center: with the ability to sweep on the right or left


side without readjusting or changing seating position-hence Purpose Built to do one Job!  


Let’s keep our streets clean and safe
