The Viajet 12 is our flagship model, and part of our Power Class series of Road Sweepers. This is also biggest Road Sweeper in our range with a massive hopper volume of 12m3, which can be mounted on a 26000kg or 32000kg chassis. This offers enviable payloads whatever the specification. The streamlined low profile body roof ensures that despite its size, the vehicle can still be operated in both urban and rural locations where low tree branches can cause damage. In fact, one of the special applications for the Viajet 12 is a tunnel cleaning option which really does exhibit its flexibility. Regardless of the operational or geographical challenges, you will always have a solution.
The vehicle can an unbelievable amount of water. Tank sizes range from an incredible 4700 litres as standard, with options to increase this to 6700 litres! This assists in making the Viajet 12 Road Sweeper the cleanest in its class. The Viajet 12 is designed to have two separate water tanks, one underneath the hopper, and one at the front of the hopper. Along with the benefits of weight distribution, this also further reduces the operational noise of the Viajet 12.
When compared to all of our competitors, a key and unique difference to all of our Viajet Series of Road Sweepers is the patented Air Recirculation System. In practice our sweepers filter the air and debris collected by the sweeper in the hopper, and then blow the air back down onto the road surface which creates turbulence resulting in a much cleaner swept surface. This also improves the air quality and overall environment in the areas where the sweeper operates.
Adding water to the blast air also enables the road to be cleaned in the working area of the suction shaft. Another advantage of the Air Recirculation system is that in winter, it can be operated in temperatures as low as -5 °C by adding water to the suction shaft, as the air introduced into the circuit is heated by around 15 °C and therefore prevents the water in the suction shaft and the container from freezing.
The Viajet 12 is driven by our High Performance Hydrostatic drive system, which has always been popular in the UK market.
As with its smaller siblings, this is available with several options to meet your specific operation, including different High Pressure Water Systems, Rear Suction Systems, additional water system options and rear door mounted Wander Hoses.
Tipping the vehicle is made easier due to the optional external tipping controls and 60 degree tipping angle for the hopper.
Our Viajet series perfectly complements our other products, and offers an excellent solution for clients who need a Road Sweeping Vehicle that really performs. Large areas of the Viajet hopper are manufactured from real Stainless Steel as standard, and options are available to construct the entire hopper from this material. This offers great durability, and is a worthwhile consideration for clients operating product on road maintenance or in coastal areas for instance. Its strong and durable construction, offers you excellent payload capacity for this size of vehicle, regardless of the road surface condition and / or waste stream.
