Oshkosh Airport Products Group delivers H-Series XF Broom to Wittman Regional Airport
Oshkosh Airport Products
Oshkosh Airport Products Group, a division of Oshkosh Corporation, delivered the first Oshkosh H-Series XF snow removal broom to Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisc. The new XF broom, unveiled in April at the Aviation Snow Symposium, will be used year-round to keep the airport’s runways clear of snow and debris.
“Oshkosh has an excellent reputation for reliability and performance, and we are extremely pleased to add this unit to our fleet of maintenance vehicles,” said Peter Moll, airport director at Wittman Regional Airport. “Fast and efficient snow and debris removal is a top priority for our airfield operations, and the new Oshkosh XF broom will greatly enhance our capabilities.”
“We’re pleased and gratified to see the new H-Series XF broom placed into service in our hometown,” said Jeff Resch, Oshkosh Airport Products Group vice president and general manager. “The H-Series XF broom was designed with input from airport operations experts, and is engineered to deliver faster, smarter, and more efficient snow and debris removal.”
Later this month, from July 23-29, Wittman Regional will be the busiest airfield in the world when it hosts the iconic EAA AirVenture – “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration” – involving 10,000 airplanes and 500,000 visitors from over 60 countries. “The XF broom will be a major asset for our safety program at this year’s EAA AirVenture, when the entire aviation world is watching us,” Moll added.
The new H-Series XF front mounted broom features a number of industry-leading technologies, including the innovative SIB cassette brush system. The SIB cassette brush system boasts easier operation and less vibration, and it minimizes bristle-changing time and labor costs. Other advanced technologies on the H-Series XF include an available active weight transfer system, which keeps weight on the front axle for improved performance of the chassis and broom.
The standard Oshkosh Command Zone advanced electronics system helps provide a new level of operator control. The unit is electronically configured to meet the specific requirements of each airport. The Oshkosh XF broom is available in a 46-inch diameter and 18, 20, and 22 foot lengths. Service and support is offered through the Oshkosh network of snow removal dealers.
