The CityCat V20e is equipped with a custom-designed 63 kWh Bucher Battery Pack that has the capacity to last a full 8-hour shift.
Powerful, yet respectful to its surroundings, the sweeper can also be used round the clock – such is its impressive low noise emissions.

Class leading maneuverability
Class leading maneuverability

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 all-new ergonomically designed cab, Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS) tested cab and the single wheel suspension ensure a unique driving experience. Easy use of the sweeper is provided by a simple human-machine interface and a one-hand operation concept. The Smart-Con control system supported by the CSense touch-display invites the driver into a new, intuitive world of operation in which the driver can focus on the work in front of him and the operation becomes secondary.

Stainless Steel Hoppers
Stainless Steel Hoppers

Bucher Municipal is the pioneering street sweeper manufacturer to offer as standard hoppers totally constructed - not just lined - of 1.4003 stainless steel – the very best for this application. Our sweepers provide 250-times better corrosion resistance than standard or even 304 stainless steel.

Maximum maneuverability

CityCat V20e

An advantage of articulated steering is increased maneuverability. With this system, the suction intake always faces in the direction of travel, giving a clean sweep without leaving unsightly dirt streaks behind. The rear of the sweeper follows the exact path of the front, letting the driver concentrate on the task ahead.

Bucher Battery Pack

CityCat V20e

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 very low noise emissions. The custom-designed battery pack is made to last a full 8-hour shift. The patented, sophisticated repair concept ensures maximum safety for the driver and the workshop.

On-board charger & energy recuperation

CityCat V20e

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 which recuperation level is selected the high-voltage battery will be charged during the deceleration. Thus, the range will be further extended.

 

Operating noise at only 92 dB(A)

CityCat V20e

Due to the very low noise emissions of 92 dB(A) (2000/14/EG), operations are possible around the clock, even at night

Floating suction intake

CityCat V20e

Wide in diameter to pick up large items, and with a more efficient, energy-optimized fan, the floating suction intake with its patented mounting mechanism ensures maximum air velocity for perfect sweeping results, no matter how uneven the surface. Just like the floating suction intake, the straight suction hose also belongs to the Bucher “DNA” and results in a minimum risk of blockage and optimum airflow for trouble-free operation. Equipped with a third front brush, which allows a sweeping width of 106" (2700 mm), the daily work can be carried out easily and efficiently.

Large 2.6 yd³ (2 m³) hopper with water recirculation

CityCat V20e

The newly designed large 2.6 yd³ (2 m³) hopper is made of 1.4003 stainless steel to last the life of the sweeper. The large and easy to clean filter screen ensures high air velocity even in leaf season by preventing premature clogging. The hopper can be operated either from the outside of the sweeper or directly from the cab. With a dumping height of 1555 m, the swept material can be easily emptied into containers. The service water tank with 40 gallons (150 l), located underneath the hopper, ensures maximum autonomy. With the all new easy clean option, the hopper can be cleaned efficiently, leaving more time for sweeping.

Developed with comfort and safety in mind

CityCat V20e

Each cabin comes with two fully-fledged driver seats with headrests to offer not just a comfortable driving experience, but also an ergonomic workstation.
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.

Single wheel suspension

CityCat V20e

The custom-designed single wheel suspension ensures a unique and comfortable driving experience while contributing to the lightweight and low-maintenance design of the sweeper. By minimizing shocks and vibrations, the stress and fatigue of operators are reduced, which contributes to higher operational readiness and safety on the road.

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

CityCat V20e

The CityCat V20e 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 V20e

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.
