Get to know the MaxPowa V65
Designed to last
The MaxPowa V65 sweeper operates at the lowest cost, with a large 50-gallon auxiliary fuel tank giving increased on-station time. In addition, maintenance costs are significantly reduced on the gearbox and fluid coupling, as no belts or high wearing components are required. The V65 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 MaxPowa V65 is designed to fit a wide range of chassis models to suit specific operational requirements, the V65 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 MaxPowa V65, 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.
Maximizing on worksite time
Maximizing on worksite 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 MaxPowa V65 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 MaxPowa V65 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 a higher flow are available for heavier applications. The optional Water Recirculation system can save up to 237 gallons of water per day, extending the on worksite time and reducing the risk of dust going through the fan.
Bucher Municipal offers 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. We are also the only manufacturer in the industry to offer a lifetime warranty on our hopper bodies.

Designed to last in the toughest environments
The MaxPowa V65 hopper is manufactured from 1.4003 stainless steel, shot blasted with aluminum oxide prior to the application of a strontium based primer followed by a hard-wearing top coat. In addition, all gray 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 MaxPowa V65 is 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 entirely around the sweeper. The operator can adjust the broad sweep brush easily and check surroundings 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 sweep gear 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 are accessed via a wide lightweight service ladder giving three-point of contact, which easily folds away when not in use. All critical controls, 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. The ease of access to this equipment facilitates diagnostic checks and maintenance.
Additionally, the MaxPowa V65 comes equipped with waterproof IP67 automotive electrical connectors for enhanced reliability. V65 models have equipment storage lockers on both sides of the hopper for the storage of hydrant or wander hose extension tubes.
Designed with the operator in mind
The in-cab center console featuring cup holders and USB charging points can be adjusted to suit the operator's preference. The 7” color JVM screen is mounted on an articulated arm allowing tilt angle and rotation to adjust 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 sweep gear until depressed again. This feature enables the operator to change from sweeping to transit quickly and easily. 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 595 gallons
The V Range has a 410-gallon stainless steel water tank integrated into the lower portion of the hopper, and an optional 184-gallon additional water tank is also available. The MaxPowa V65 uses yellow mist atomizing jets to reduce water usage by 20%; alternatively, red nozzle jets with a higher flow are available for heavier applications. For increased productivity, an optional water recirculation system can save up to 237 gallons of water per day, extending the on worksite time and with the added advantage of reducing dust emissions.
Up to 141 inches with simultaneous sweep option
The MaxPowa V65 offers up to 141 inches swept width with the simultaneous sweep option (for dual sweep machines only), set almost flat makes short work of light application surface cleaning.

MaxPowa V65t with twin
Twin-engine options offering performance and flexibility for truck-mounted sweepers
Being independent of the truck chassis, the sweeper 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 MaxPowa V65t has a JCB 55 kW industrial engine designed for operating in a dusty environment.
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 V65t, fuel conservation and noise levels are enhanced.
Once set to 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.
MaxPowa V65e 100%
The MaxPowa V65e, 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.
MaxPowa V65h 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 allow the driver to have infinite travel speed from 0 to 40 km/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 engages the 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 280 hp.
The HGB2 gearbox can handle high torque transmissions with engines up to 280 hp. 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 Bucher 50 gallon fuel tank, allowing longer on work time. The hydrostatic drive system is lighter than the equivalent twin-engine sweeper, allowing more payload.
MaxPowa V65m with chassis
The MaxPowa V65m 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 V65t or the hydrostatic gearbox option of the V65h.
The V65m powapack is similar to the V65h using a 31-inch diameter hydraulically driven fan impellor, but in place of a hydrostatic gearbox, the V65m has a large 130 cc hydraulic fan pump which is directly driven by a drive shaft from the chassis engine PTO.
The hydraulic fan pump in turn drives a gear pump that 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 MaxPowa V65m has been designed to operate at maximum sweeper performance at just 1000 rpm of the chassis engine.
The chassis engine rpm may be increased, either with the chassis cruise control (chassis dependent) 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 1000 rpm.
All this combines to keep fuel consumption, noise, and forward speed to a minimum.
