  • VIAJET 8 / 12

    The VIAJET 8 combines huge usable volumes with high suction for the toughest applications. The VIAJET 8 is therefore especially suited to the demanding conditions of construction sites and the cleaning of larger surfaces with high-pressure systems, where both performance and range are required.

    VIAJET 12 is designed for the harshest and most specialist working environments because of its size and performance. Built on a chassis incorporating 3 and 4 axles with up to 36-tonne gross vehicle weight, this sweeper combines a huge payload with considerable usable volume. Equipment configurations based on user requirements makes the VIAJET 12 a specialist for any contractor who has to perform on special tasks around large building sites, airports and motorways.

    Equipped with the FAUN air circulation system these both VIAJETs combine high pressure surface cleaning with water capacities up to 8,700 litres and enormous suction power. With these two sweepers you can clean it all from construction of roads through to taxiways and runways.

  • VIAJET 4 / 5

    The VIAJET 4 concept brings together the robust construction of typical 7.5 t – 10.0 t chassis with all the practical qualities of a truck mounted road sweeper. The approximate1.9 m-wide chassis are ideal for urban use. Thanks to the lightweight design, a maximum payload of around 3 t can be achieved. The debris hopper has a gross volume of 4 m³, in accordance with DIN EN 15429-1. The container hood is made from light glass fibre reinforced plastic and can be fully raised for refuse collection.

    In decentralized applications, the VIAJET 4 high tipping system can be used to tip the load directly into the skip containers. The new engine configuration provides improved access to the area for servicing and allows for a high water capacity of 800l.

    The VIAJET 5 combines a high usable volume with compact dimensions making it ideal for municipal applications.

    These city class sweepers are perfect for cleaning the access roads to the airport and parking areas – equipped with patented FAUN air circulation system they will do their work with the minimal dust emission even in the coldest conditions.
