Pioneering technology
Pioneering technology

With the electric drive train and its specially designed Bucher Battery Pack the CityCat VR50e excels in terms of autonomity and zero emission operation.

The compact external measurements and selectable four-wheel steering give the vehicle superb manoeuvrability and guarantee maximum stability and active safety at all times during daily service runs.

High-capacity in every aspect
High-capacity in every aspect

The stainless steel hopper which boasts a huge payload capacity and the possibility of carrying a volume of 880l of clean water with you enable exceptionally long sweeping distances and very high fill levels.

An extra 1120-litre water tank can be installed to maximise operating time and the total water capacity to 2000 litre. Thanks to the high suction power, large hopper and enormous water supply, the service package sets new standards when it comes to performance and range.

Convenient operation

The completely redesigned cab with all LED lights, central locking system and glass all around offers the operator maximum comfort and safety while providing a modern workplace. The Bucher CityCat VR50e is operated via the ergonomically designed and one-hand operated Smart-Con operating system. The CSense touch display includes all additional operating tools, getting rid of unnecessary switches in the cab, leaving the driver concentrated on the work ahead.

By activating the EasyClean self-cleaning function, the blower, filter screen, dirty water tank, sidewalls and other difficult to reach pockets of dirt are sprayed by the cleaning nozzles. The machine is perfectly clean within a couple of minutes.

Agile and fast

CityCat VR50e Manoeuvrability

The compact outer dimensions, as well as the four-wheel steering that can be turned on and off, give the vehicle maximum manoeuvrability and ensure perfect directional stability and safety for everyday work.

Zero emission and high-efficiency drive system

CityCat VR50e Battery Pack

Bucher Municipal has developed a custom-designed Bucher Battery Pack that’s tailored to the vehicle. This proven technology subject’s minimal footprint to the environment and provides low noise emissions. The custom designed battery pack is made to last a full 10-hour shift. The patented, sophisticated repair concept ensures maximum safety for the driver and the workshop.

On-board charger & energy recuperation

CityCat VR50e Charging

The 22 kW on-board charger means that batteries can be recharged in just a few hours at any public car-charging station. Even shorter charging times offers the DC fast charging option. Depending which recuperation level is selected the high-voltage battery will be charged during the deceleration. Thus, the range will be further extended.

Excellent coverage

CityCat 5006

Fully variable positioning of the entire sweeping and suction nozzle unit to either side provides the optimum coverage.

The unit is protected from impact damage because it retracts when an obstacle is encountered. The hydraulically activated large panel filter makes it possible to take up bulky material.

With just the touch of a button on the control panel, the left or right side brush can be lifted if only one side is required. This protects the brushes from unnecessary wear.

High-capacity clean water volume

CityCat 5006

A capacity of 880 liters of clean water ensures long service times. An extra 1120-liter water tank can be installed to maximise operating time.

The service water recovery option ensures a higher fresh water coverage and less service water swept up.

Same volume, different dumping hight

CityCat 5006_Capacity

The CityCat VR50e has a Hopper capacity of 5.6 and a payload of 4700 kg.

Raising the hopper with the option of the high dump feature allows the debris to be tipped into large containers, skips or directly into refuse collection vehicles. This dramatically increases efficiency.

The hopper volume remains the same and does not become smaller. The Hopper is available in different stainless steel materials for individual corrosion resistance.

Ergonomic and smart

CityCat VR50e Cabin

Each cabin comes with two fully fledged driver seats with headrests to offer not just a comfortable driving experience, but also an ergonomic workstation. In addition, a third folding seat can be installed, which allows the transport of three people at once.

We believe all drivers should enjoy working with our sweepers, so we’ve introduced a walk-through cab, soft touch steering and an armrest with ergonomically perfected controls. A great view out of the cab is not only provided by the big, heated front screen and all glass doors but also through the camera options of which the views can be displayed on the Smart-Con and CSense screens.

Of course, safety is crucial. From the 3-point safety belts to the enhanced illumination of the sweeping area - ensuring a safe overview and visibility for third parties - it’s our duty to take care.

Smart-Con - start sweeping with the push of a button

CityCat VR50e Smart-Con

The CityCat VR50e offers an intuitive and ergonomic operation of the sweeper via the Smart-Con multifunctional armrest paired with the Smart-Con 4.3-inch display. The sweeper can be operated by one hand while having pop-up feedback on the Smart-Con screen for all automotive and sweeping related information which makes work a lot easier. Increases safety and ergonimics by always keeping the working area in sight.

CSense touch-display

CityCat VR50e CSense

The CSense 10.1-inch touch display enables extended setting possibilities and visual diagnostics while giving an excellent overview of the vehicle. The display can be adjusted in height and angle to ensure an ergonomic operation by the driver.

EasyClean System

CityCat VR50e EasyClean

The operator simply activates the EasyClean self-cleaning function. The blower, filter screen, dirty water tank, side walls and other difficult to reach pockets of dirt are then sprayed by the cleaning nozzles. The machine is perfectly clean within a couple of minutes.
