ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the failure of hydraulic motor shaft seals of street sweepers. It states that a contractor complained on the frequent breakdown of sweepers wherein the motor fails in the curb side compared to the one on the street side. It cites the features of the sweepers as stated in the catalog from the manufacturer which includes suitability for low-flow with high-pressure applications, elimination of the need for case drain and 3000 pounds per square inch (psi) system pressure.
