The RT range balances performance, environmental impact and low cost of ownership very effectively. Sharing the same power train from the Johnston VT range, the RT provides excellent productivity with reduced maintenance costs.

A high power 115 hp John Deere turbo charged engine provides outstanding vacuum performance. Combined with Johnston’s mechanical step up gear box and fluid coupling, the RT range of sweepers provide the best power to fan speed ratio in the industry.

Inside the selected chassis, the Johnston master control module is mounted in the cab and gives easy access to all the sweeper controls and options. An optional rear view camera provides safety for pedestrians and the sweeper when backing up.

The ergonomic in cab controls incorporate an audible and visual raised hopper warning, sweeper fuel gauge, engine hour counter, tachometer and a low level water indicator as standard.

The RT range of sweepers operate at the lowest costs whilst maintaining high productivity, the large 58 gallon auxiliary polyethelene fuel tank allows for increased time on the street feeding the fuel efficient engine and mechanically driven fan.

Maintenance costs are significantly reduced as no belts or high wearing components are required and due to the sweeper collecting debris through suction, fewer parts are required to lift the debris into the hopper.

Designed to last in the toughest environments, the RT range hopper is constructed of stainless steel, and carries a lifetime warrantyt. In addition all grey parts, such as the sweep gear, powerpack and subframe, are shot blasted, and electromagnetically powder painted in a durable two part epoxy paint finish. This ensures your sweeper continues to look as good as it performs, retaining a high resale value or longer in service life.
