I have an older 600 that has sat in our shop for about 8 years. I'm starting to try to get it running. But, when it comes to running the sweeper part, I have no clue. I need information on the controls and also about changing rubber and so on. Also if anyone can tell me what kind of work this unit can do. I'm thinking of using it for roads and constuction. It on a Ford 600 chassis. It was originally a City of Reno truck. Thanks for any help or information.

If you let me know what type of help do you need with the controls I may be able to help.
When it comes to replacing your curtains always make sure that the threaded part of the curtains face the rear of the truck other wise they WILL wear out a lot faster then normal.

Thanks for telling me about the rubber. I didn't know that. About the controls. Can I run with both brooms down if I rebuild it to factory, or should I modify it so that I can run with both brooms down? It really help when doing roads. Is there anything I should be looking for in the head adjustment? Is there a place that I might be able to find a manual for this old beast? I need to find out about all the adjustments and so on.
