Equally at home on municipal street cleansing or heavier duty work sites the VT650 sweeper delivers consistently high pick-up performance - even on contractor duties such as road planing and dirt pick-up around construction sites and access roads.
Available in dual or single sweep configuration, the maximum 3.6m swept path ensures superb coverage per hour - and with high capacity hoppers, water systems and fuel tanks, the VT650 is designed to stay at work for longer.
Mounted to the subframe, 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. All twin -engined VT Range sweepers are powered by a dedicated high performance auxiliary engine.
With a heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant stainless steel body, Johnston's VT650 is robust and built for unrivalled durability.
All sweeping operations are controlled from the master module inside the cab, while all critical systems controls - including the master circuit breaker plus the valves and auxiliary equipment for the pneumatic, hydraulic and water systems - are housed in a purpose-built, dust and weatherproof locker. The VT650 also comes with waterproof IP67 automotive electrical connectors to enhance reliability.
Advanced hopper design
The rear discharge chute directs loads away from the rear of the vehicle, minimising the risk of damage to other sweeper components at the rear of the vehicle.
The standard load de-watering system allows draining of water from the hopper
Water Purging System
The VT650 features as standard Johnston's Pressadrain Water Purging System that enables the easy discharge of water from the sweeper system to avoid damage to the equipment in freezing conditions.
With years of experience of sweeper design, Johnston's engineering team have developed a unique system which creates a cyclone effect within the hopper, for the most efficient filtering via mesh screens, of dust and debris particles prior to discharge to atmosphere. This unique design is a standard feature of all Johnston V Range sweepers.
The V Range is the first European-manufactured sweeper to achieve full PM10 test compliance in stringent air quality tests on whole vehicle emissions.
Johnston Sweepers are proud to be the first sweeper manufacturer to be awarded ISO 14001 accreditation.
Water Recirculation: The water recirculation system is an invaluable option on the VT650 which increases on-station sweeping productivity. In addition to the regular clean water tank capacity, the recirculation fill in the hopper increases on-station time by up to 50%. Controlled from within the cab, recycling excess water from the body into the suction nozzle conserves water and reduces dust emissions.
Littasnatch: Developed to reach litter and debris from pavements and off road areas. With a lightweight, easy to operate flexible hose and nozzle, with a reach of 7 metres.
Supawash: A high pressure water system for fast cleaning of road furniture and the sweeper itself, via a hose and hand lance. Water can also be diverted to a front mounted full-width spray bar or suction nozzle bars, to help remove stubborn road debris. The spray bar and the sweepgear can be used together for high performance cleaning, particularly around building sites or on road laying operations
Powascrub: This wide sweep brush ground pressure device enables the extra scarifaction of compacted debris, it also alleviates weight on the brush during light sweeping duties which prolongs the working life of the brush.
Load de-watering: With increases in waste tipping charges, this option ensures that you only pay for waste volume, not water volume.
Powered mesh shakers: A fast and effective method of clearing damp paper, leaves and dirt from suction meshes without opening the rear or access doors.
Wanderhose:Available in 150 and 200mm diameters, this rigid, turntable-mounted hose with a flexible extension enables cleaning over a wide 3.35m radius. Boom-mounted with 280° of rotary movement, it provides access around parked cars, over fences and into drains for emptying up to depth of 2 metres. The Wanderhose also picks up large and unusually shaped objects, such as house bricks. An optional hydraulically powered boom control is also available.
Variabrush: Allows the channel brushes to be laterally controlled from within the cab.
High Power auxiliary engine : For exceptional performance in difficult environments, a high powered auxiliary engine can be specified.
Simultaneous sweeping: This option allows dual sweep machines to deploy both channel brushes and nozzle simultaneously, to achieve a maximum cleaned width of 3.6m.
