TYMCO Introduces New Model 210h on Ford Super Duty F-450 / F-350

Offers Improved Sweeping Performance and Operator Experience

Waco, TX, April 12, 2013—TYMCO® today introduced the new Model 210h® mounted on a Ford Super Duty F-450 or Ford F-350. The Model 210h is 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. Ford Super Duty trucks offer many features that allowed the Engineering Team at TYMCO to provide sweeper performance enhancements and an improved operator experience.

Ford Super Duty trucks offer the class-exclusive live-drive power takeoff (PTO) provision. Because it is integrated into the transmission’s design, integrating the TYMCO hDrive Power System with this PTO is a simpler, more robust design and requires fewer truck modifications than a belt-driven hydraulic system design. The live-drive PTO utilizes an output gear linked directly to the engine crankshaft that delivers power anytime the engine is running, whether you’re in motion or at a stop, which is perfect for an application like parking lot sweeping.

“Since its introduction, the Model 210h has been a very capable parking lot sweeper. With the hDrive Power System now taking advantage of the Ford live-drive PTO, we are able to deliver blower performance improvements of about 10% and gutter broom improvements of about 30% on the new 210h,” said Bobby Johnson, TYMCO’s Vice President, Marketing. “Also, the new Model 210h has smoothed out the process of pulling power off of the truck engine. Operators will immediately notice the seamless transition when switching from driving to sweeping and back to driving again compared to the experience of using a traditional ‘single-engine’ parking lot sweeper.”

Environment

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 restrictions by offering inherent sound reductions and providing 2 blower speeds – low and high. Ford Super Duty trucks stocked by TYMCO are powered by the B20-capable 6.7L Power Stroke V8 Turbo Diesel engine and meet 2010 US EPA Emissions Standards.

Availability

The new Model 210h is available today through the TYMCO Dealer Network with the Ford Super Duty F-450 or F-350. The Model 210h comes in one quick-to-ship configuration or is available as a customized build-to-order parking lot sweeper. Currently, the Model 210h only comes with the Ford Super Duty F-450 or F-350 Diesel Truck Chassis.

About the 210h

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. In addition, components such as the pick-up head, skids and brooms are shared with the Model 210, easing fleet integration for current Model 210 owners. The Model 210h also comes standard with the TYMCO BlueLogic® Control System which provides intelligent safety features and assists in sweeper troubleshooting with LED diagnostics.

About TYMCO

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.
