A full CANbus integrated door mounted control pad allows the operator to safely adjust all the sweep options. Pendant controls connected via a flexible cable allows the operator to safely tip the body and open the rear door from either side of the cab, at the same time maintaining a clear view of the tipping area. The wide-sweep brush can also be adjusted using the pendant control to extend brush life. As standard, all Johnston V Range sweepers are fitted with a body prop, which automatically engages when the hopper is raised, and has a choice of four tipping heights. The hydrostatic drive pump is accessed via a wide lightweight service ladder giving three-point of contact, which can be folded away when not in use. All critical controls – including valves, solenoids and auxiliary equipment for pneumatic, hydraulic and water systems are contained in a purpose built locker on the right hand side of the vehicle. Additionally, the VS651 is also fitted with waterproof IP67 automotive electrical connectors for enhanced reliability. VS651 models have equipment storage lockers on both sides of the hopper for storage of hydrant or Wanderhose extension tubes. The ease of access to this equipment facilitates diagnostic checks and maintenance. As standard, the VS651 sweeper features a Pressadrain water purging system so that when freezing weather conditions are anticipated, water is easily and conveniently drained from the sweeper by a simple in-cab switch. Water jets in the nozzle boxes are self-cleaning which extends the life of the components.
