Street and Parking Lot Sweeper Products

Elgin Sweepers

Elgin sweepers have been cleaning roadways since 1914.  It all began at the turn of the century with inventor John Murphy of Elgin, Illinois.  Mr. Murphy recognized the serious health hazards caused by polluted streets and invented the world's first machine that automatically picked up street debris.  This remarkable piece of equipment eliminated the need for a man with a shovel and helped solve the sanitation problems of the day.
