Virtually maintenance-free, the FOD*BOSS tarmac sweeper is capable of removing dangerous material, such as rocks, luggage hardware, name tags, nuts, bolts, washers, nails, and wire fragments.  Even sand and other FOD invisible to the naked eye.  The FOD*BOSS can even pick-up soda cans with our specially developed can catcher system.  This is available as an additional item and can be added to existing systems currently in use.

The FOD*BOSS Ultimate is available in Single, Duplex and triplex sweeping configurations with sweep widths of 2.4m/8ft, 4.8m/16ft, and 7.3m/24ft respectively. Each configuration operates at the same top speed up to 65 kph in both wet and dry conditions. With the use of our special GroundForce™ Tow Hitch, the FOD*BOSS can be safely and securely operated in windy conditions, unlike some other systems.  Regardless of whether you have a concrete, asphalt, or smooth or grooved fine-textured spray seal surface requiring FOD removal, the FOD*BOSS Ultimate works equally as well on them all.

Low Cost:  The FOD*BOSS Ultimate is an affordable FOD sweeping system where its effectiveness defies the price. For less than the cost of a coffee per day, you can have a highly flexible, high-speed FOD sweeping system that also provides an unrivalled FOD pick-up rate, guaranteed.  Save up to 95% of operating costs compared to mechanical sweeping systems without sacrificing efficiency.

High-wind environments:  Airfield operators working in areas exposed to high winds may feel their FOD sweeping options limited to expensive mechanical sweepers only.  This is most certainly not the case, and the FOD*BOSS Ultimate’s tow hitch has been specifically designed to operate in high-wind environments while maintaining its unrivalled FOD pick-up rate.  Now you can enjoy the benefits of more cost-effective FOD sweeping operations without sacrificing efficiency and effectiveness.
