The VT801 is the big brother to the VT651 and shares most of its characteristics. The primary differences lie in the 801’s huge 10.85 cubic yard stainless steel hopper and its 500 gallon stainless steel water tank. Like the VT651, its exclusive turbine drive system employs a fluid coupler with a step-up gear box, totally eliminating troublesome belts and greatly reducing fuel consumption. The stainless steel hopper and tank carry a lifetime warranty and the turbine drive a five (5) year warranty.
The Johnston VT801’s auxiliary engine is completely enclosed in a sound insulated compartment, making this the quietest vacuum sweeper on the market. The VT801 has also been designated by the South Coast Air Quality Management District as meeting Rule 1186, PM10 certification for its ability to pick up and contain small-micron material.
Equipped with a single gutter broom, the VT-801 sweeps a path 96" wide, while dual gutter brooms provide a 144" cleaning path. An optional hydraulically operated catch basin cleaner increases its utility and is roof mounted to allow 270 degree rotation. This useful tool accelerates your return on investment.
Consider too, the 8 gallon per minute @ 1500 PSI pressure washer with front spray bar. It includes a pressure wand that can assist with catch basin cleaning, cleaning the sweeper after use, sidewalk cleaning and many other cleaning tasks. Able to clean caked mud from roadways, the front spray bar can handle many jobs that would otherwise require a flusher truck.
