Sweeper LED Strobe Lights for Flood Brothers


Hi, thanks for watching. This is
George at Wicked Warnings here with almost one of our largest
jobs. We have here a sweeper. It’s a Cab and Chassis by AutoCar and a
Schwarze Sweep Body for our partners over at Flood Brothers. What we’ve got in the grille there, is our Thin-X LIN series in an amber-white and a green-white.
We chose amber and green to compliment the Flood Brothers’ colors. We’ve also got
on the roof, a 23-inch Whelen Mini LED bar. That’s permanent mounted up on the
roof. You can also see along the sides there,
we’re featuring our TIR-3 light above the front wheel in amber and green. Again, to complement the Flood Brothers’ colors. We’ve also got two of our 28-inch Thin-X
Strips, in amber and white, on the side of the work body there. There you can see how we’ve mounted our Thin-X into the grille, avoiding damage. We were able to go through the honeycomb
and put a backer behind there, so if they ever needed to be removed, there wouldn’t
be any visible scars left where these lights were. On the front of the cab, we put a TIR-3
in amber in green on a quicker pattern right there above the front tire. We’ve also complimented that, on the side, with our Thin-X Strip in an alternating amber and white flip-flop color on the
back. You can see here, we’ve mounted those
with 3m VHB tape, as well as the primer 94, to make sure they don’t fall off. And
we only had to drill a single grommeted hole through the metal panel for the
wiring. That way we have very little damage to mount these lights, just a
single hole that could always be filled with a mushroom top plug if we ever
wanted to remove them and go a different direction.
These lights are synchronized. They’re set up on an amber and white alternating
pattern. I chose to light the entire light because this is a large machine
and as you see, when I step quite a ways back,
these lights really do produce a good flash when the entire light is lit on
something this large. As you can see, from way back here, we have a large punch of light from the Thin-X’s. We also have the original equipment Schwarze beacon on the back center there. Most impressive part of this build is
the rear. Let me show you what we did. Out on the back of the sweeper, the
request was a lot of warning. So what we did, is we went with a six head led stick
on each side, mounted on the top. We also put our Thin-X in amber, or i’m sorry, in
green and white on the bottom. We did the sticks in all amber, to be a little bit
more friendly, a little bit more municipal looking, and then we
complemented it with the green and white Thin-X below it. I tell you, it was kind of
fun, this build, cause I took my kids to school in the sweeper, and I rolled
through the McDonald’s drive-thru in the sweeper. Having all kinds of fun driving
this around. Here you can see how them lights look at a good distance away. You
can certainly see the amber lights. They’re definitely more potent in-person
but this this build turned out really cool. A lot of light, very flamboyant it’s
definitely going to be used in parades and we’ve done a couple of the trash trucks
for this company as well. So if you’re at any local parades here around Chicago,
see if you can spot the Flood Brothers’ fleet and if you need any services give
our partners at Flood Brothers a call. They’re very good people to work with
and I’ve had nothing but good times with them so far, lighting up their fleet. Here
you can see a little bit of that front roof bar, the Thin-X’s on the side as
well as those TIR 6 sticks on the back and the Thin-X’s in the rear as well. You
can even see the TIR’s there by the front wheel. There’s just a little closer shot here. This is a very interesting build also,
working with the can bus system from the Schwarze Sweeper. This was not as simple as hooking up a bunch of wires. We definitely had a little bit to learn
with the can bus system, how to make this integrate without damaging the truck.
It’s obviously a pretty expensive piece of machinery, so we wanted to be sure to
integrate everything appropriately. You can see here how we mounted those
LED sticks right to the top of the body. Again, just a small hole for the wire
with the grommet, keeping it real clean, real secure. There’s also some LED
spotlights on the top there. That way, if you want to do any sweeping in the
middle of the night, you’re good to go. Got a rear-view camera up there as well.
We’ve got LED spotlights by the left and right gutter brooms also. Surface mounted our Thin-X right above the factory hazard lights right there. Again, in the
green and white. Thank you for watching. I hope you enjoyed this video featuring
Wicked Warnings safety emergency lighting. Give us a call if you have any
of your fleet needs. We can do small jobs. We can do big jobs. LED safety lighting
is definitely what we specialize in. Check out our social media, get in touch
with us on our website, drop a comment, subscribe, post, all the good stuff. Again,
this is George at Wicked Warnings. Thanks again for watching our Flood Brothers
sweeper build. I’m going to show you the control panel
in the dash real quick because I thought that was pretty sweet. I’m gonna nerd out
here for a minute and just show you inside the cab of this beast. It’s a
pretty cool unit. It’s got a nice rear view camera right there, you can see
everything behind you, so nobody can sneak up on you from behind. It’s also
got a nice LCD screen here. Shows you the sweeper and all the different functions
and you can see those little amber beacon lights that go off when we turn
off the lighting. We turn the lighting on, they go on to let the driver know
they’re activated by this beacon switch right here and we got a whole slew of
other switches to do all kinds of fun stuff. So this was an interesting build.
Can bus system is a little bit more complicated than others. I guess two
people can drive it at the same time and fight about which way they’re going. So, thanks again for watching Wicked Warnings. I hope you enjoyed this unique
video. Keep us in mind for everything in your public safety needs, your safety
lighting, your emergency lighting, all that good stuff.
