Weiler Buys Smith Challenger Super Broom

Feb. 21, 2024
The asphalt and quarry equipment company will be the sole manufacturer of the broom.

Weiler has become the exclusive manufacturer and seller of the SCM 400 Super Broom, a self-propelled sweeper. The move comes as the result of an agreement with Smith Challenger Manufacturing and Services.

“My goal, along with the Smith Challenger Team, was to design and build a user-friendly and durable Front Mount Sweeping Machine. The SCM 400 Super Broom has become just that,” said Keith Smith, owner of Smith Challenger, in a statement. “The time has come to make the SCM 400 more available. I am very confident that Weiler will provide the manufacturing, engineering, and marketing that is necessary."

Weiler, based in Knoxville, Iowa, engineers and manufactures equipment for the asphalt paving and quarry industries. The self-propelled broom will be Weiler-branded and sold and serviced exclusively through the Caterpillar dealer network.

“Our dealers have long been asking for Weiler to manufacture a self-propelled sweeper. Smith Challenger has a reputation for building an innovative and heavy-duty sweeper,” said Pat Weiler, president/CEO of Weiler, in a statement. “We are excited to build upon that platform."

Weiler plans to begin production of the self-propelled sweeper in late 2024.
