The CNG Scarab Merlin has been mounted onto a Renault chassis, which was modified for the sweeper application. According to the company’s engineers, the Scarab hydrostatic drive system is a good solution for a compressed natural gas powered chassis as the single engine sweeper concept pioneered by Scarab produces no additional exhaust emissions.
Scarab have also improved its CANbus control system for an even greater driver experience with an easy to use control panel for sweeper functions with full colour screen for cleaning information, and a full diagnostic and data capture capability.
The 7 unit CNG contract was secured by Dominique Declercq Distribution (3D), Scarab’s long standing French distributor based in Arras. The success of 3D with municipalities and contractors has seen over 1300 Scarab units exported to customers all over France.
