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 anything!)
-The leaf bleeder pressure door is electronically controlled, but you can't tell how open or closed it is
-Dump bed is too slow (as you just mentioned)

-You have to raise the dump bed just to check the oil, put fuel in the fuel tank, and fill up with water.

But there are a couple of things I like

+The head picks up higher so that it avoids damage on bad bumps (especially out at the landfill)
+Even with the head down, its not as easily damaged as the other sweeper (Tymco)
+It turns sharp (it's a Ford cabover)

Thanks for the reply.
The hassle that you have to go through to check the oil or any of the other fluid levels on the A7000 is the reason that I will never buy a parking lot sweeper with the "Hush Shroud".
