Elgin Sweeper has introduced the high-performance Chevron conveyor belt for Elgin Pelican and Eagle broom sweepers. The design on the new conveyor belt provides improved debris pickup, longer wear and quieter operation. Featuring an angled cleat design, the Chevron conveyor belt throws debris into the center of the hopper for better hopper fi ll. Debris on the Chevron conveyor belt naturally moves toward the center, so there is more even distribution of debris in the hopper, allowing the operator to continue to sweep for longer periods of time without stopping to dump debris.
