Johnston Sweepers winter packs for C201 street sweepers11th of December 2013
New from Johnston Sweepers are demountable winter packs for use on its C201 compact street sweeper. The accessories, which include snow plough, snow brush and gritter unit, can be fitted in less than ten minutes at the first sign of snow or ice, and removed just as quickly when normal sweeping duties are required.
The switchable functions mean machines can double up as sweepers or snow clearing vehicles without all the expense, storage challenges and utilisation issues of holding two separate units.
The new C201 pack features three optional pieces of kit. The 1.6 metre snow blade at the front is suited to any type of road condition thanks to its pendulum suspension system, and also a 1.5 metre snow brush option. Both can slew left or right and are fully controlled from the cab.
Completing the pack is a 200 litre gritter unit, with electronically controlled metering from inside the cab which dispenses grit across a 1.2 metre spread width, suitable for most pavements – or, via a special spinner unit, capable of spreading up to six metres for car parks and roads.
