Werk-Brau Introduces Wheel Loader Angle Brooms
New Werk-Brau introduces hydraulically driven Wheel Loader Angle Brooms that are ideal for cleaning and clearing of snow, dirt, debris, grass and more. They are available in 8-, 10-, and 12-foot widths, each with 30° of swing left or right of center. Polypropylene brush with wire filaments provides long service life even in adverse conditions. Hydraulically driven 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 provided for safety. Broom speeds of up to 250 RPM are attainable, depending on the prime mover, making this Angle Broom an ideal attachment for wheel loaders of all makes, models, and sizes.
Werk-Brau Angle Brooms are American-made and available with industry leading lead-times; some models are stocked for immediate shipment. Wafer style brush has 32” outside diameter (OD) x 10” inside diameter (ID). Brush core can be installed with either end to the left/right with no effect on sweeping performance, to simplify installation. Brush and core assembly can be removed from frame without disconnecting drive motor hoses. Brush hood is manufactured from 16-gauge steel with formed edge fold for additional strength. Robust end plates are 12-gauge steel for more durability. 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. 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; customer must supply hoses from bulkhead or valve to prime mover. A spring system to dampen transportation bounce is included.
Finish is black polyurethane topcoat with epoxy primer for protection from the elements. 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).
