Get to know the V652
Designed to last
V652 sweeper operates at the lowest cost, with a large 190 litre auxiliary fuel tank giving increased on-station time. In addition, maintenance costs are significantly reduced on the Johnston gearbox and fluid coupling, as no belts or high wearing components are required. The Bucher V652 provides the lowest emissions and running costs. Suction sweeping requires fewer components, resulting in less wear and tear which in turn reduces maintenance costs.
Designed to suit operational requirements
The V652 is designed to fit a wide range of chassis models to suit specific operational requirements, the V652 sweeper will provide the power and performance to complete the task. In-cab controls are ergonomically positioned to provide safe and easy operation whilst sweeping. The CANbus system monitors sweeper performance and provides daily checks. The 7” JVM display incorporates as standard an audible and visual raised hopper warning, fuel gauge, engine hour metre, tachometer and a water level gauge. In addition data can be downloaded via a USB stick, showing a range of information from fuel consumption to average sweeping times. Throttle control of the auxiliary engine is infinitely variable ensuring optimum operational and fuel efficiency with no performance compromised.
With a 1500 rev Eco-mode built into the V652, fuel conservation and noise levels are enhanced. A full CANbus integrated door mounted control pad allows the operator to safely adjust all the sweep options.
Maximising on-station time
Maximising on-station time requires a balance of having enough water capacity to minimize refills, having enough hopper capacity to cope with large volumes of leaves or debris, having a payload great enough to meet demands of a workday and being able to carry enough fuel to reduce non-productive travel.
The V652 provides the ideal balance between performance, environmental impact and low cost of ownership, with applications to suit a full range of sweeping environments, benefits that make the Bucher V652 the sweeper of choice worldwide.
Low Water usage
The V Range uses as standard yellow mist atomizing jets to reduce water usage by 20%, or red nozzle jets with higher flow are available for heavier applications. The optional Water Recirculation system can save up to 900 litres of water per day extending the on-station time and reducing the risk of dust going through the fan.

Designed to last in the toughest environments
The V652 hopper is manufactured from 1.4003 stainless steel, shot blasted with aluminium oxide prior to the application of a strontium based primer followed by a hard wearing top coat. In addition, all grey parts such as the sweepgear, powerpack and subframe are shot blasted and electro-magnetically powder painted in a durable two part epoxy paint finish. This ensures the sweeper continues to look as good as it performs, retaining a high residual value or longer in-service life.
Monitor sweeper performance
The CANbus system monitors sweeper performance and provides daily checks. The display incorporates as standard an audible and visual raised hopper warning, fuel gauge, engine hour metre, tachometer and a water level gauge. In addition data can be downloaded via a USB stick, showing a range of information from fuel consumption to average sweeping times.
A full CANbus integrated door mounted control pad allows the operator to safely adjust all the sweep options.
The new VT652 is now equipped with a radio controlled remote pendant allowing the operator to walk completely around the sweeper without having wires to contend with.
The operator can adjust the wide sweep brush easily to extend brush life and can check the surroundings before opening the hopper or tipping.
Designed with Safety in mind
The highly visible, self-engaging body prop provides the operator and service personnel with a safe working environment. The V Range features a wireless radio controller allowing the operator to walk completely around the sweeper. The operator can adjust the wide sweep brush easily and check surrounds before opening the rear door or tipping.
High visibility brush plates and hose sleeves make it easier for the operator to see the brush position. The V Range is also supplied with an LED sweepgear work light as standard and a wide range of additional LED and hazard warning lights are also available.
The auxiliary engine and hydrostatic drive pump is accessed via a wide lightweight service ladder giving three-point of contact, which can be folded away when not in use. All critical controls acirceuroldquo including valves, solenoids and auxiliary equipment for pneumatic, hydraulic and water systems are contained in a purpose built locker on the right hand side of the vehicle.
Additionally, the V652 is also fitted with waterproof IP67 automotive electrical connectors for enhanced reliability. V652 models have equipment storage lockers on both sides of the hopper for storage of hydrant or Wanderhose extension tubes.Acircnbsp The ease of access to this equipment facilitates diagnostic checks and maintenance.
Designed with the operator in mind
The in-cab centre console featuring cup holders and USB charging points can be adjusted to suit the operators preference. The 7” colour JVM screen is mounted on an articulated arm allowing tilt angle and rotation to be adjusted without the need for any tools. The JVM has a wide range of settings that can be tailored to suit the operational needs.
The ergonomic door controller can be used for all sweeping operations, brush position, pressure, speed, nozzle aperture, engine revs and water jets. A heavy duty pause button allows the operator to lift all the sweepgear until depressed again. This allows the operator to change from sweeping to transit in a quick and easy way. The V Range remembers the last sweeping settings used each time.
Water purging system as standard
Water purging system so that when freezing weather conditions are anticipated, water is easily and conveniently drained from the sweeper by a simple in-cab switch. Water jets in the nozzle boxes are self-cleaning which extends the life of the components.
Up to 2254 litres
The V Range has a 1554 litre stainless steel water tank integrated in the lower portion of the hopper and an optional 700 litre additional water tank is also available. The V652 uses yellow mist atomizing jets to reduce water usage by 20%, alternatively red nozzle jets with higher flow are available for heavier applications. For increased productivity, an optional water recirculation system can save up to 900 litres of water per day extending the on-station time and with the added advantage of reducing dust emissions.
Up to 3600mm with simultaneous sweep option
The V652 offers up to 3600mm swept width with the simultaneous sweep option (for dual sweep machines only), set almost flat makes short work of light application surface cleaning.
VT652 with twin
Twin engine options offering performance and flexibility for truck mounted sweepers
Being independent of the truck chassis, the sweeper auxillary engine powers the sweeping functions and vacuum system so both engine and chassis can be tailored to the application and customer preferences. A wide range of chassis can also be supplied with either manual, automatic or automated gearboxes providing a wide range of options to suit the operator.
The VT652 has a JCB 55kW industrial engine designed for operating in dusty environment. Providing 410Nm of torque at 1200rpm the Stage 5 engine is ideally suited for road sweeping operations whilst offering low fuel consumption (EU28 only).
The option of a JCB 93kW engine is also available offering a max torque of 550Nm at 1500rpm for applications where higher suction power is required; for example more arduous road construction operations (EU28 only).
Outside of the EU an optional JCB 85kW Stage 3a can be offered with a max torque of 440Nm at 1300rpm.
Throttle control of the auxiliary engine is infinitely variable ensuring optimum operational and fuel efficiency with no performance compromised. With a 1500 rev Eco-mode built into the VT652, fuel conservation and noise levels are enhanced.
Once set to an operating performance, the twin engine sweeper system will perform at the same level regardless of gradient and travel speed. The sweeping operation can be paused or stopped easily and sweep gear lifted to allow the driver to transit from one location to another without having to disengage a separate drive.
VE652 with 100%
The VE652, 100% electric truck mounted sweeper offering a solution for zero emissions sweeping combined with longer on-station time, ease of use and low operational costs.
VS652 with hydrostatic
The patented Hydrostatic drive option is ideal for built up areas such as towns and cities where sweeping speed and control are an advantage.
These single engine hydrostatic gearbox truck mounted sweepers provide the best control during the sweeping operation and allows the driver to have infinite travel speed from 0 to 40km/h. With the cruise control option the operator can set the ideal sweep speed and concentrate on sweeping. The chassis is driven via the standard truck gearbox in transit mode and when the sweeper is required to sweep, the operator engagesthe hydrostatic drive system. Maintenance is only required on one engine but the single engine is working at high load more often.
The patented hydrostatic gearbox can work with large chassis engines up to 280hp. Being 300kg lighter than a twin engine sweeper, the VS offers a 5% greater payload on average than the VT.
The HGB2 gearbox can handle high torque transmissions with engines up to 280hp. Operators wishing to use high power engines can sweep efficiently without overloading the gearbox. The single engine sweeper uses the fuel tank from the chassis or the Johnston 190 litre fuel tank, allowing longer on station time. The Hydrostatic drive system is lighter than the equivalent twin engine sweeper, allowing more pay load.
VM652 with chassis
The VM is a single engine truck mounted machine and is offered alongside our existing truck mounted machines. All sweeping functions are driven directly by the chassis engine PTO rather than our auxiliary engine options of the VT or the hydrostatic gearbox option of the VS.
The VM powapack is similar to the VS using a 800mm diameter hydraulically driven fan impellor, but in place of a hydrostatic gearbox the VM has a large 130cc hydraulic fan pump which is dreictly driven by a drive shaft from the chassis engine PTO.
The hydraulic fan pump in turn drives a gear pump which controls all sweeping equipment, and, in the event of supawash being selected then a tandem pump is fitted to run the additional hydraulic required.
The VM has been designed to operate at maximum sweeper performance at just 1000rpm of the chassis engine.
The chassis engine rpm may increased, either with the chassis cruise control (chassis dependant) or the foot pedal. This increases the forward speed of the vehicle but does not increase sweeper performance as it will have already attained maximum suction performance at 1000rpm.
All this combines to keep fuel consumption, noise and forward speed to a minimum.
