Johnston VT650, Twin Engine
Designed to last in the toughest environments, the VT650 hopper is manufactured from 4003 stainless steel, shot blasted with aluminium oxide prior to the application of a strontium bases 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.
The VT651 is designed to fit a wide range of chassis models to suit specific operational requirements, confident that the Johnston VT650 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 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 VT651, 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.
