Beam optional equipment

Sweepgear systems remove debris from a road or other surface and direct this into high capacity vacuum nozzles. The XPowa has multiple sweep options to suit all applications - some located between the truck axles, or side sliding to add sweeping width, or in front of the vehicle to clean debris before it is compacted by the truck’s tyres. These combine to maximise performance and productivity.

4.    Brush unit, side-sliding, right or left - 400 mm (with WSB)

Impressive high pressure systems up to 400 bar

Beam Optional equipment

High pressure water systems are available to suit all applications. Spray bars can be located in any position – front, mid mounted, rear mounted or situated near to suction nozzles or brushes as needed. Performance ranges from 150 bar and 80 litres/min up to 400 bar and 100 litres/min. Key options:   

1.   Water pumps

2.   Detergent systems

3.   Nozzles to suit - pencil jet, rotating jet or full rotor jet systems

Increase your water capacity significantly

STMS optional equipment

As standard, water tanks are situated on each side of the hopper to give a low centre of gravity and vehicle stability. Additional water may needed when longer sweeping time is required or where access to fresh water is limited or when large quantities of water are required. The range encompass both additional water tanks and in hopper water tanks.

1.   Additional water tank between cab & hopper
Made of stainless steel and located between the cab and hopper, linked to the standard tank. Choose from 1100, 1500 or 2000 liters capacity.

2.   In hopper water tank
Made of stainless steel and linked to both the standard tanks on each side of the hopper to maintain equal balance of the vehicle as the water is consumed. 

Simple solutions for demanding sweeping tasks 

Beam optional equipment

1. Front brush: Prevent planed asphalt from being crushed back into the surface by the vehicles front tyre.

2. Front brush, side sliding - 750mm: For asphalt planning, surface preparation, V-channel and lay-by cleaning and an extra reach of the side sliding arm allowing the vehicle to sweep where it normally would be inaccessible. *Available with a hydraulic tilt.

3. Front brush, side sliding - 300mm: Allowing the operator to place the brush right into the curb and road surface, and can also be used to prevent the tire compacting debris into the surface. *Available with tilt, to brush onto a curb top. 

4. Front brush, ø1100mm, side sliding - 1100mm: Provides a big advantage when sweeping lay-bys, bus stops, along roads with overhanging trees and when sweeping tunnels.

5. Brush behind front wheel: For the removal of weeds and grass that is growing at the edge of the road or on top of curbstones. Height control enables the brush to remove the weeds without the use of harmful chemicals. 

Accessories, gully clearing and remote litter collection

Beam optional equipment

1. Scrapers: Full width scraper, mounted behind front wheel or scraper behind right and/or left hand front wheel. 

2. Magnets: Rear or front-mounted magnet for carrying out high-speed runway clearing or roadside cleaning. 

3. Edge Cutter behind right and/or left hand front wheel: Ideal for cutting back the edge of the road as is encroaches over time. The edge cutter removes the grass, weeds and earth in preparation for re-surfacing or just for cutting the edge back to the asphalt edge. 

4. Top- or rear mounted wander hoses: The wander hose options provide the operator with easy to handle gully sucking apparatus, which can be used to pick up litter or empty sand traps as well as gully clearing. 

No more trails of water 

Beam additional equipment

Special side suction nozzles for use with rear mounted wide suction

With most high pressure water jetting systems, the risk of water spilling sideways and so leaving a trail of water behind the vehicle increases as the water pressure rises. With the special side suction nozzles, this risk is virtually eliminated since the nozzles are mounted on the outermost edges of the wide suction. With the addition of the side suction nozzles, an extra side curtain prevents some of the side spillage and the special side suction nozzles suck it up into the hopper. The special nozzles (one on each side) are activated at the same time as the rear suction so there is no need to activate any special flaps.

Power pack modules

Exceptional performance with minimum noise and fuel consumption

Choose between a twin engine with either a standard or a high capacity fan where power transmission is done via a belt drive system and fluid flywheel. For ultimate speed control and powering the entire sweeper and washer functions choose instead having a single engine (from the chassis) with hydrostatic transmission and high capacity fan.

Rotorcleaning system

Superior results with less water

As an alternative to full width rear suction and spray bars, Bucher offers a rear mounted rotor cleaning system. It operates at 60 to 80 litres per minute compared to the traditional 100 litres per minute. This reduces the costs of fuel, waste disposal, refilling and allows for better utilisation (more on-station time). This system is equally valuable when used in road maintenance, construction, industrial site cleaning, and aircraft parking stand cleaning.

The system is rear mounted, it uses 4 rotating spray bars covering the full width of the truck and full width suction. It is completely enclosed ensuring no water seepage and a high vacuum that collects all water and waste. It can be used with a range of high pressure pumps from 100 to 400 bar.

Detergent systems

Efficient oil/ degreasing removal

Detergent system options for grease and oil spill removal combined with a high pressure system. Front mounted detergent spray bar for stand-alone dispersal. Variable dosing system to control the dilution of the detergent by mixing with water. There are two different detergent systems available: mixer or mixed. 

Control systems

In cab control systems

The sweeping controls are located in the cab. You have the opportunity to choose between a standard orintegrated control system, which gives you a more flexible control system, to accommodate your needs and requirements.
