CityCat VS20 
Bucher Municipal's new lighter, more mobile sweeper

Welcome to improved suction, enhanced connectivity, increased comfort and ever-important sustainability based on many years of experience in the development of compact sweepers.

CityCat VS20

With 3.5 t gross weight, the CityCat VS20 delivers an outstanding combination of load capacity and sweep performance. Lightweight and powerful at once, the sweeper is drivable with just a class B (car) driver’s license.

Technology
Bucher Municipal's 3.5 t sweeper
Bucher Municipal's 3.5 t sweeper

The CityCat VS20 is the only pure sweeper in the 3.5 t class, for maximum performance in daily sweeping operations. With a one tone payload, up to 425 l of water and a hopper volume of 2 , compromises are a matter of the past.
The sweeper adapts to local conditions from the simplest application to high end sweeping jobs while meeting the weight restrictions for use on sidewalks and it can be driven with class B (car) driver’s license.

Reliability
Class leading manouverability

Tried and true articulated steering provides exceptional agility, manouverability and maximum directional stability, allowing the driver to concentrate fully on sweeping without worrying about manouvering. Articulated steering combined with the front brush means that the vehicle can efficiently and cost-effectively clean everything from the narrowest of passages to the largest of areas.

The all new ergonomically designed, ROPS tested cab and the single wheel suspension ensure a unique driving experience. Easy use of the sweeper is provided by a simple human machine interface and a one-hand operation concept. The Smart-Con control system supported by the CSense touch-display invites the driver into a new, intuitive world of operation in which the driver can focus on the work in front of him and the operation becomes secondary.

Maximum manoeuvrability

CityCat VS20

An advantage of articulated steering is increased manouverability. With this system, the suction intake always faces in the direction of travel, giving a clean sweep without leaving unsightly dirt streaks behind. The rear of the sweeper follows the exact path of the front, letting the driver concentrate on the task ahead.

Floating suction intake

CityCat VS20

Wide in diameter to pick up large items, and with a more efficient, energy-optimized fan, the floating suction intake with its patented mounting mechanism ensures maximum air velocity for perfect sweeping results, no matter how uneven the surface. Just like the floating suction intake, the straight suction hose also belongs to the Bucher “DNA” and results in minimum risk of blockage and optimum air flow for trouble-free operation.

Large 2 hopper with water recirculation

CityCat VS20

The newly designed large 2 m³ hopper is made of 1.4003 stainless steel to last the life of the sweeper. The large and easy to clean filter screen ensures high air velocity even in leaf season by preventing premature clogging. The hopper can be operated either from the outside of the sweeper or directly from the cab. With a dumping height of 1,555 m, the swept material can be easily emptied into containers. The service water tank with 150 l, located underneath the hopper, ensures maximum autonomy. With the all new easy clean option the hopper can be cleaned efficiently, leaving more time for sweeping.

Developed with comfort and safety in mind

CityCat VS20

Each cabin comes with two fully fledged driver seats with headrests to offer not just a comfortable driving experience, but also an ergonomic workstation.
We believe all drivers should enjoy working with our sweepers, so we’ve introduced a walk-through cab, soft touch steering and an armrest with ergonomically perfected controls. A great view out of the cab is not only provided by the big, heated front screen and all glass doors but also through the camera options of which the views can be displayed on the Smart-Con and CSense screens.
Of course, safety is crucial. From the 3-point safety belts to the enhanced illumination of the sweeping area - ensuring a safe overview and visibility for third parties - it’s our duty to take care.

Single wheel suspension

CityCat VS20

The custom-designed single wheel suspension ensures a unique and comfortable driving experience while contributing to the lightweight and low-maintenance design of the sweeper. By minimizing shocks and vibrations, the stress and fatigue of operators is reduced, which contributes to a higher operational readiness and safety on the road.

Smart-Con - start sweeping with the push of a button

CityCat VS20

The CityCat VS20 offers an intuitive and ergonomic operation of the sweeper via the Smart-Con multifunctional armrest paired with the Smart-Con 4.3-inch display. The sweeper can be operated by one hand while having pop-up feedback on the Smart-Con screen for all automotive and sweeping related information which makes work a lot easier. Increases safety and ergonimics by always keeping the working area in sight.

CSense touch-display

CityCat VS20

The CSense 10.1-inch touch display enables extended setting possibilities and visual diagnostics while giving an excellent overview of the vehicle. The display can be adjusted in height and angle to ensure an ergonomic operation by the driver.

Robust diesel engine

Standard 45 kW Stage V Deutz 3-cylinder engine with cooled, external exhaust gas recirculation with low fuel consumption for maximum autonomy. Also available with Stage IIIA emission standard.
