This is described as the only sweeper design on the market "with a true Regenerative Air System". Reading a bit about it in the link above, it's designed to NOT blow air that it uses to suck stuff up right back into the atmosphere, but instead filters it again and uses it to blow fine material out of cracks before it sucks the air back in again. This one is a Scottsdale sweeper, as opposed to the Phoenix sweeper which I spotted a few blocks west of here in this post, the one in which I was too upset by the disappearance of one of the yellow dogs to catch the make and model. This COS (City of Scottsdale) truck did a bang-up job of cleansing the bike lane of post-Halloween glass, candy wrappers, dried-up ectoplasm, and firework shreds. However, I was hoping they would bust out of their sweeper jurisdiction to go regeneratively suck up the glass shards over on the PHX side so I could stop riding around them every morning. No luck, of course. Still waiting to spot the sweeper with the big maroon phoenix bird on the side. Well, at least the Scottsdale side is clean now. Well swept, sir, well swept.
