Get to know the CityCat 2020ev
The CityCat 2020ev makes sustainable street cleaning a reality: ultra-quiet, emission-free, people- and environmentally-friendly road sweeping. Neither payload nor suction or sweeping performance has been restricted.
A lithium-ion battery delivers eight hours of standard operation.
Tried and truly articulated steering provides exceptional agility, maneuverability, and maximum directional stability, allowing the driver to concentrate fully on sweeping without worrying about maneuvering.
Articulated steering combined with the front brush means that the vehicle can efficiently and cost-effectively clean everything from the narrowest of passages to the largest of areas.
The innovative control system displays all the operating information in a simple and clear form on the centrally mounted screen. An additional display shows all relevant information on the electric system and thermal management.
The cab of the CityCat 2020ev offers an invitingly high level of comfort as well as exceptionally low noise and vibration values.
- Articulated steering
- Zero emission
- 92 dB(A) noise emission level
- Low operating costs
- Floating suction nozzle system
- Suction nozzle located between front axle
- Impeller made out of stainless steel
- PM2.5/10 4-star certified
An advantage of articulated steering is increased maneuverability. With this system, the suction nozzle always faces in the direction of travel, giving a clean sweep without leaving unsightly dirt streaks behind.
High capacity battery pack
The exceptionally robust and maintenance-free design provides a long service life and due to the liquid cooling and heating a minimized battery aging.
On-board charger & Energy recovery
The 22 kW on-board charger means that batteries can be recharged in just two to three hours at any public car-charging station.
Depending on which recuperation level is selected the high-voltage battery will be charged during the deceleration, hence extending the range even further.
Operating noise under 2000/14/EG: 92 dB(A)
Due to the very low noise emissions, operations are possible around the clock, even at night. The CityCat 2020ev is around 10 dB(A) quieter than conventional sweepers.
Impact protected suction nozzle
The wide, cast aluminum suction nozzle is suspended on a floating mechanism between the front wheels. A tilting mechanism allows it to ride over obstacles without damage to the nozzle. The suction nozzle camera enables improved inspection of the suction nozzle intake.
Hopper with water recirculation
The stainless steel hopper features a large filter screen and an integrated water recirculation system. This ensures exceptionally long service runs and enables environmentally friendly cleaning.
Ergonomic and safe operation
The vehicle is simple to operate using the steering wheel, foot pedal, and easy to use joystick. All joystick functions are self-explanatory and intuitive to use. The air-conditioned driver's cab ensures a pleasant working environment.
A reversing camera provides improved visibility and reduces the risk of collision with obstacles or other road users during daily operations. An additional display shows all relevant information on the electric system and thermal management.
PSS – exclusive to Bucher Municipal
The Programmable Sweeping System (PSS) displays all relevant information about the vehicle’s operating parameters on a clear screen and memorises frequently used application configurations.
Snow plough & spreader
Snow can be cleared with the snow plough or the roller brush. The salt spreader can be operated at the same time to provide a full, cost-effective winter service. Salt can be carried in the hopper.
