TYMCO Introduces New Model 210h with hDrive and BlueLogic

True Regenerative Air Sweeping with Less Environmental Impact

On February 2, 2011, TYMCO introduced the Model 210h, a Model 210 Parking Lot Sweeper powered by the TYMCO hDrive Power System. hDrive is an optimized hydraulic power system that gives Model 210h owners all the simplicity and low maintenance of sweeping without an auxiliary engine. The Model 210h delivers everything Model 210 owners have come to love about the TYMCO Regenerative Air System – air sweeping with a dual chambered pick-up head delivering a powerful air blast to the paved surface and centrifugal dust separation for low dust emissions.

“The Model 210h is a very capable parking lot sweeper with all of the performance capabilities required by most parking area applications. With the introduction of BlueLogic, we’ve provided streamlined features from the operator and service technician perspectives,” said Robert Hatfield, TYMCO’s Vice President of Sales and Market Development. “The Model 210h further defines True Regenerative Air parking lot sweeping allowing TYMCO owners to get more out of their sweepers while remaining sensitive to the environment.”

It was important for the Engineering Team at TYMCO to introduce a parking lot sweeper with the least amount of compromise on performance while continuing to maintain a high standard of reliability. The performance features on the Model 210h are delivered by a True Regenerative Air System and a large gutter broom. Both of these features are powered by the hDrive Power System which were traditionally powered by an auxiliary engine on the Model 210. In addition, components such as the pick-up head, skids, curtains and brooms are shared with the Model 210, easing fleet integration for current Model 210 owners.

The Model 210h will also come standard with the TYMCO BlueLogic Control System. This system first introduced on the TYMCO Model 500x, assists in troubleshooting potential electrical issues by providing service technicians LED diagnostics for the sweeper. BlueLogic provides intelligent safety features such as raising the gutter broom when the sweeper is put in reverse and turning off the blower when you open the dump door as well as environmental features such as the ability to pause the dust control system when the operator turns off the blower.

The Model 210h delivers great sweeping performance while reducing fuel consumption and routine maintenance. By replacing the auxiliary engine with hDrive, TYMCO has removed the need to service the auxiliary engine air filters, fuel filters, oil and oil filters and in the process, have manufactured a more environmentally friendly sweeper. hDrive has also presented Model 210h owners a solution to noise pollution restrictions by offering inherent sound reductions as compared to both the Model 210 and the Model 210 SRE (Sound Reduction Engineering). By continuing to sweep with a True Regenerative Air System, owners will continue to get the cleanest sweep on paved surfaces as well as low dust emissions because of the integrated high-efficiency multipass centrifugal dust separator. Continuing TYMCO’s dedication to designing and engineering environmentally responsible sweepers, the Model 210h is manufactured with recyclable steel and plastic and is finished with low VOC acrylic urethane and powder coated components.

The Model 210h is available in the United States through the TYMCO Dealer Network in two quick-to-ship configurations – Budget or Pro. And as always, the Model 210h is available as a customized build-to-order parking lot sweeper. Currently, the Model 210h is only available with the Isuzu NPR. Customers requiring 2007 (Tier 3) US EPA emissions can order their Model 210h today. Customers wanting 2010 (Tier 4) US EPA emissions will be able to order their Model 210h in late 2011.

TYMCO modernized street sweeping in the 1960s with the invention of the Regenerative Air System and Model 600, reinvented parking lot sweeping in the 1970s with the Model 210 and delivered high speed Foreign Object Debris (FOD) removal with the Model HSP airport runway sweeper in the 1980s. TYMCO also pioneered environmentally conscious dustless sweeping with its Model DST-6 and Model DST-4, and leads the clean alternative fuels market with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) powered sweepers. Today, TYMCO continues its dedication to the Regenerative Air System by driving innovation with the highly maneuverable Model 435 and high dump Model 500x street sweepers, and has recently introduced the hDrive Power System for the Model 210h which is defining the future of sweeper power systems.
