PennDOT District 1 Sweeping Up with New MV


Recently we delivered a new Elgin Whirlwind MV to PennDot’s District 1, headquartered in Oil City, PA.  District 1 services the northwest corner of PA, including Erie, Crawford, Mercer, Venango, Warren and Forest counties. 

With over 800 employees, 3,700 miles of roadways and 2000 bridges, District 1 should keep this Elgin Sweeper busy.

The first of its kind in Pennsylvania, the unit features a 10 cubic yard 304 stainless steel hopper, catch basin cleaner and an extra 360 gallons of water in addition to the standard 330 gallons.  The extra water is needed due to the nature of District 1, where access to clean water is not always easy.

The Elgin MV’s Stainless Steel Hopper and screens are entirely manufactured of 304 stainless.  Unlike cheaper 400 series or foreign made Chromweld steels, 304 is a high quality, non-magnetic stainless that should easily out last the rest of the sweeper!

We appreciate PennDOT’s  decision to choose Elgin and A&H to keep District 1 clean!
