Elgin introduces the RegenX regenerative air sweeper


Elgin Sweeper Company has launched the new RegenX regenerative air street sweeper.

The new sweeper was created with input from municipalities and contractors, including operators, service technicians, fleet managers and public works directors across Canada and the United States.

“We couldn’t have developed the RegenX without our new innovation process,” said Mike Higgins, vice president and general manager of Elgin Sweeper Company.

“The time and effort we invested talking with operators and users ensured we built a product that provides the ultimate user experience in regenerative air sweeping.”

Elgin has been manufacturing sweepers for more than 100 years and produces a full line of street sweepers, including regenerative air sweepers.

In designing the new RegenX, Elgin formed an innovation team to perform several months of voice-of-the-customer research.

They conducted hundreds of interviews and on-the-road ride-alongs with users of both Elgin Sweeper products and competitive sweepers to determine the features and qualities that are most important to the end user.

The team then developed a prototype and took the unit out to the market. They continued to collect feedback and make changes. After countless conversations and iterations, along with real-world testing, all the input came together to create the RegenX. 

This new regenerative air sweeper is built with the proven technology that is the hallmark of Elgin Sweeper vehicles, but it is now easier to service, simple to operate and easier to clean.

According to Elgin, the smooth design of the RegenX hopper and 50-degree dump angle could make the RegenX the easiest sweeper to clean in the industry. 

The RegenX also maximizes operator efficiency without the addition of premium mechanical parts, such as a scissor lift, that can increase cost and reduce capacity. As a result, the RegenX is the only sweeper in the industry to offer the ability to dump into roll-off containers while still boasting a 6.1 cubic metre capacity.
