Key benefits

• 3* PM10 rated
• SmartLink >


With a heavy duty, corrosion resistant stainless steel body, the Johnston VS502 is robust and built for unrivalled durability. 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.
Sweeping operations are controlled from the master module inside the cab, while critical systems controls – including master circuit breaker, valves and auxiliary equipment for the pneumatic, hydraulic and water systems – are housed in a purpose built, dust proof and weather proof locker. The VS502 also benefits from IP67 automotive electrical connectors to enhance reliability.
Through experience in hopper design coupled with dedicated research, Johnston have developed a unique hopper void which creates a cyclone filtering of dust and debris particles prior to discharge to atmosphere through filter mesh screens. This unique design is a standard feature of all Johnston V Range sweepers. The hopper discharge chute directs loads efficiently and cleanly, avoiding contact with the rest of the sweeper, in addition the load de-watering option allows water to drain from the hopper waste before discharging a load.
For larger vehicles the electric option isn’t viable as batteries would have to be enormous, so Johnston has worked closely with Iveco to develop our brand new CNG-powered VS651 CNG hydrostatic truck sweeper, mounted on a 16T Iveco chassis and driven by a single 210Hp engine.
