Smaller suction hose on Tymco 600?

I have a queston regarding the Tymco 600 and the Tymco HSP. Does the HSP have a smaller sized suction hose than the standard 600 model? With our 14 inch radius on our 600's hose, it does a great job picking up pinestraw, leaves, paper, etc. But it only does a fair job when picking up heavy stuff suc...

Thanks a lot for your info. Turns out the head that sprays water in the hopper was worn out so we got it replaced. Occasionally it will start blowing sand again from time to time, but I've found that spraying the inside of the hopper with a water hose and wetting everything down before sweeping will...

Heaviest load you've had in a street sweeper

For those who weigh in when they dump (and get told how heavy their load is), what is the heaviest load you've ever had? (Please tell what kind of sweeper you were driving at the time so we'll know how big it is) And sucking it in through the suction tube on the back doesn't count. :) The 4th heavie...

2006 Tymco 600 blowing too much dust! Help!!!

Up until recently, our 2006 was pretty good about not kicking up that much dust. But now, it's started blowing dust real bad out of the left side, EVEN IF I'M PICKING UP MOSTLY PINESTRAW and whatnot. Come to find out, it's blowing sand back outside the leaf bleeder on the left side hose. When I clos...

Thanks,

I didn't know there were any standard-shift sweepers. I can't imagine having to run one of them... :shock:

Yes that thing does look fancy. I think you could put a 1960's and a 2000 year model side by side and not be able to tell much a difference; it's been awhile since they've changed their design I think. I just hope it's not as bad about getting dust in the cab as the older ones were. (We have an old ...

Lost RPMs

We have a 2006 Tymco 600 air sweeper. Come this July we will have had it for a year now. When we first got it, the rear engine would rev up to about 1750 RPMs. Now, it seems like it won't go past 1600. Is there a reason for this and can it be fixed? (It still does a great job picking up roadside deb...

Question about the Pelican

Years back we had a 1995 Elgin Pelican that we used for the city. It picked up great, but one main problem we had with it was the dust. Even with the windows closed, it would always get bad dusty inside of the cab. (To the point where eventually you had to get out and take a break or else your sinus...

I've driven an A7000. I can think of several things wrong with it. - It's hard to get to the dipstick to check the oil (to check the back engine, you have to get up on top, then squeeze your arm so that you can reach the dipstick), and also the battery box (in fact, it's just about hard to get to an...
