Designed for working in extreme industrial environments, specialising in airports, container ports, quarries, and arterial highway construction areas.
Mounted to the sub-frame, the hydraulically operated sweeping system is designed to prolong the life of the brush and reduces the cost of ownership.
Both channel and wide-sweep brush installations feature quick-change mechanisms which reduce downtime between changeovers.
With a heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant stainless steel body, a hopper capacity of 8m³ the Johnston VS801 is robust and built for unrivalled durability.
All sweeping operations are controlled from in-cab controls and critical systems controls - including the master circuit breaker plus the valves and auxiliary equipment for the pneumatic, hydraulic and water systems - are housed in an easily accessible purpose-built, dust and weatherproof locker.
The VS801, in common with all V Range products, comes with waterproof IP67 automotive electrical connectors to enhance reliability.
Advanced Air Filter Design
Through experience in hopper design, Johnston have developed a unique system which creates a cyclone effect within the hopper for efficient filtering of debris and dust particles prior to discharge to atmosphere through mesh filter screens.
This unique design is a now a standard feature of all Johnston V Range sweepers.
The rear discharge chute directs loads away from the rear of the vehicle, minimising the risk of damage to lamps and other components.
The standard load de-watering system allows draining of water from the waste volume.
Water Purging System
The VS801 features as standard Johnston's Pressadrain Water Purging System that enables the easy removal of water from the sweeper systems in freezing conditions.
Littasnatch: Specially developed to pick up light litter from pavements and hedgerows. With a lightweight, easy to operate flexible hose and nozzle, and 7 metre reach.
Supawash: A high pressure water system for faster cleaning of gullies and drains using a hose and hand lance.
Water can also be diverted to a front-mounted full-width spray bar or suction nozzle to help remove stubborn road debris.
Powascrub: This wide sweep brush ground pressure device enables the extra scarification of compacted debris.
Load de-watering: With increases in waste tipping charges, this option ensures that you only pay for waste volume, not unnecessary water volume.
Water Recirculation: The VS801 sweeper comes with an optional water recirculation system that recycles excess water into the suction nozzle, which conserves water, reduces dust emissions and extends on-station time.
Pneumatic mesh shakers: A fast and effective method of clearing damp paper and leaves from suction meshes.
Wanderhose: Turntable-mounted boom, with in excess of 4 metres flexible trunking.
