The Roadtec CB-100 conveyor broom is a mobile, self-propelled sweeping machine designed to clean material from work sites. Conveyor brooms are used for asphalt milling, snow removal and construction site sweeping. The CB-100 offers a clean sweep system designed to yield clean-up in one pass, according to the manufacturer.
The CB-100 weighs 17,000 lbs. (7,711 kg) and features an exclusive flow system design. The 32 in. (81 cm) diameter brush rotates at 150 rpm with adjustable, free-floating designs that are said to reach every crevice. The brush is 6 ft. (1.8 m) wide.
Front-mounted rakes comb through material to separate and remove large debris. Strike-off blades cut material heights to manageable levels and specially designed, dual moldboards direct material to center, preventing end gate seepage and material loss.
Front discharge, endless-cleated, 32 in. conveyors transfer debris away from the work zone, which may eliminate the expense of vacuum trucks.
The machine features a heavy-duty frame and axles. It is powered by a low-emissions, 99 hp Kubota Tier-IV interim engine and the hydrostatic transmission is designed to provide smooth controlled acceleration for all speeds. The brakes are oil-bathed and sealed, which is intended to extend wear life, according to the manufacturer.
The CB-100 conveyor broom features folding end-gates, which allow for quicker brush changes during operation. Grease points, filters, and the electrical system are in locations designed to be easy to access.
The machine's operator cabin is pressurized, dust-free, climate controlled and ROPS certified. Plush seats, sliding seat options, windshield wipers and fingertip control panels are designed to provide comfort and optimized visibility.
