Did you know that the Schwarze regenerative air sweepers have advanced side broom controls? Series Hydraulics Circuits Most air sweeper hydraulic circuits operate in series that drive the left broom with hydraulic oil and exhaust it from the one on the right.

This means, to be able to efficiently sweep heavy material with …
