truck-mounted sweeper / for runways
3,150 mm (124 in)
VKS-H Airport Sweeper
The VKS-H was developed for sweeping airport aprons and runways. Robustly built, the mountable sweeper can be used at airports all year round and reliably clears the airport service areas of coarse debris.
Construction and Technology
The VKS-H has an open front construction to provide enough space for the debris removal. This enables the sweeper to operate at its full capacity. The length of the roller brush is 3,400 mm. Designed as an extremely robust sweeper, the VKS-H has a central support frame made of torsion-resistant square tube and is also fitted with a self-supporting brush reel. Height adjustable pneumatic castor wheels ensure the correct individual brush ground pressure. Care was taken during development to make sure that the VKS-H was able to cope with heavy loads and suitable for difficult sweeping conditions. The sweeper can be front-mounted on medium, as well as, heavy carrier vehicles. This makes it ideally suited to the airport sweeper AS 990, for example. With its selection of brushes, the VKS-H can also be used in winter. The special brush roller for snow enables it to clear light snow-covered surfaces.
