Elgin Pelican Gutter Broom Issue

Post by rascal1909@rcn.com » Sun Sep 15, 2019 6:27 am

Hello to all! I operate a 2011 Elgin Pelican for the City of Bethlehem PA and am having a wierd issue with it. When you start to sweep and push the switch into sweep mode, all the brooms go down but after about a minute the right gutter comes up and retracts but keeps spinning. Any ideas on what the issue could be, this just started on Friday. Thanks in advance

Welcome from CA. My mechanic/partner is out of town for this week. But when he returns, I'll pass this by his review. We don't run that particular sweeper, but , perhaps it's not specific to *just* that type/unit.

Check back in @ Next Monday-ish, and I'll let you know what I find out.

Any ideas? Seems to be an issue that might have something to do with heat? Thanks

I just ran it past our mechanic. That's not something he can diagnose in printed text. Nothing he's run into. Nor do we have Pelicans here. This is something he'd have to diagnose on-site.

Wish we could have been more help. Sorry 'bout that :(
