The R Range balances performance, environmental impact and low cost of ownership very effectively.

Street sweeper downtown

Designed to last in the toughest environments, the R Range hopper is constructed of stainless steel.  The R655 provides cost effective, efficient road sweeping. Regenerative air circulation allows for large forward facing digger gutter brooms and a full width suction to maximize sweeping speed. Combined with ergonomic operator controls and low running costs, the R655 provides an ideal solution to long low cambered roads and urban environments.
