Advance Proterra™

The Proterra™ is the ideal solution for industrial sweeping applications from factories to warehouses, parking garages to foundries and many more. The unique design makes fast work of sweeping a facility with its large cleaning path, excellent maneuverability and high capacity hopper. An ergonomic operator interface and the unique Clear-View™ sight line of critical sweep areas ensures hours of safe and comfortable sweeping.


The Proterra™ comes equipped with DustGuard™*, part of the DustClear™ 5 Stage Dust Control System. Unlike conventional mechanical broom sweeper technology, DustGuard™ addresses dust at its greatest source – the side brooms – through a fine “fog” that is applied to suppress the dust. The result is a dust controlled sweep path that is 75% more productive than its nearest competitor.

Operator Safety

The offset hopper allows the operator to view the side broom and the area in front of the sweeper without having to lean outside the frame of the machine, making it safe and comfortable to use. The hopper safety arm is controlled from the operator’s compartment. The operator is safe from moving parts through tip-back engine cover. Impact-absorbing body structure and 5 mph bumper provide the ultimate in operator safety.
