Seeing the outside exhibition area at Pulire made me envious of a climate that facilitates the setting up of stands outside in the fresh air. Imagine that in Birmingham! It was clear as we looked around that this 360 Electrica from Isal Power Sweepers was Italian designed - it was so sleek and stylish. However, it has many other attributes as Leonardo Bernasconi explained:
"This electrically driven urban sweeper boasts zero emissions and is very quiet in operation and technologically advanced," he said. "It's designed to respond effectively to the most demanding requirements and environmental performance expectations, in all the areas where generally only a manual worker may operate and in all areas of high environmental sensitivity - such as a healthcare environment. It ensures high standards of cleanliness every time and without the negative environmental impact one might expect.
"The electric drive systems and the completely electric controls, with electronic monitoring of all functions from steering to suction, ensure maximum performance and high autonomy without producing pollution, while ensuring a significant containment of operating and maintenance costs.
"The absence of hydraulics avoids the risk of accidental oil leaks and thus makes it safe to use this machine even on fine flooring".
Leonardo explained that the transmission and steering system are equipped with a diagnostic system that provides the operator with every report of possible failures, thus minimising time spent investigating a potential fault. All calibration data, settings and operating parameters are electronically managed through a dedicated console connection.
The high suction power, together with a filter system that collects fine dust, provides an excellent sweeping action on any surface without the use of water. Finally, interchangeable standard 360 litre waste containers facilitate an unlimited waste collection capacity.
