Get to know the V50
Designed to last
The V50 sweeper operates at the lowest cost, with a large 190 litre auxiliary fuel tank giving increased on-station time. In addition, maintenance costs are significantly reduced on the gearbox and fluid coupling, as no belts or high wearing components are required. The Bucher V50 provides the lowest emissions and running costs. Suction sweeping requires fewer components, resulting in less wear and tear which in turn reduces maintenance costs.
The V Range Sweepers are equipped with noise suppressions hoods encapsulating the auxiliary engine and fan casing. Noise attenuation vanes are fitted as standard in the air exhaust system. Noise at the drivers ear is less than 75 dB(A) at maximum revs (chassis dependant), creating a safter operating environment for both the driver and pedestrians. The engine can be set to lower revs for night sweeping which reduces the noise levels by 50%.
Productivity driven by reliability
The V50 provides the ideal balance between performance, environmental impact and low cost of ownership, with applications to suit a full range of sweeping environments, benefits that make the V50 the sweeper of choice worldwide.
Productivity is driven by reliability and dependability through fewer breakdowns or service interventions. Combine this with great suction performance, quick engage options and an ease of onsite adjustments or consumable replacements and your time working increases.
The V Range delivers great productivity with standard features and a wide range of options to match your operational needs.

Equipped to meet the demands of the city environment
With a 3000 mm wheelbase, when mounted on a 12 tonne chassis, the V50 has a class-leading kerb-to-kerb turning circle of only 10.54 metres, a useful advantage when negotiating congested urban streets and coping with street furniture and overhanging trees.
Well equipped to meet the demanding requirements of the urban city environment, the V50 has an overall height of 2880 mm (chassis dependant) and carries 1000 litres of water whilst giving a 4 tonne payload to achieve high productivity and prolonged on-station working.
Full EUnited PM2.5/10 Compliance
The V50 in common with all the V Range is also the first European-manufactured machine to achieve full PM2.5/10 test compliance in stringent air quality tests on whole vehicle emissions and carries the 4 star certificate.
Twin-engine sweeper offering performance and flexibility for truck-mounted sweepers
Being independent of the truck chassis, the sweeper auxiliary engine powers the sweeping functions and vacuum system so both engine and chassis can be tailored to the application and customer preferences.
A wide range of chassis can be supplied with either manual, automatic or automated gearboxes providing a wide range of options to suit the operator. The JCB auxiliary engines come in 55 kW Stage 5, 85 kW Stage 3a or 97kW to Stage 5 (where available).
Throttle control of the auxiliary engine is infinitely variable ensuring optimum operational and fuel efficiency with no performance compromised. With a 1500 rev Eco-mode built into the V50, fuel conservation and noise levels are enhanced.
Once set to operating performance, the twin-engine sweeper system will perform at the same level regardless of gradient and travel speed. The sweeping operation can be paused or stopped easily and sweep gear lifted to allow the driver to transit from one location to another without having to disengage a separate drive.
Designed to last in the toughest environments
Designed to last in the toughest environments, the V50 hopper is manufactured from 1.4003 stainless steel, shot blasted with aluminum oxide prior to the application of a strontium bases primer followed by a hard-wearing top coat.
In addition, all grey parts such as the sweep gear, powapack, and sub-frame are shot blasted and electro-magnetically powder painted in a durable two-part epoxy paint finish. This ensures the sweeper continues to look as good as it performs, retaining a high residual value or longer in-service life.
Pressadrain water purging system as standard
All V Range sweepers feature Pressadrain as standard, a water purging system so that when freezing weather conditions are anticipated, water is easily and conveniently drained from the sweeper by a simple in-cab switch. Water jets in the nozzle boxes are self-cleaning which extends the life of the components.
Up to 3600mm with simultaneous sweep option
The V50 offers up to 3600mm swept width with the simultaneous sweep option (for dual sweep machines only), set almost flat makes short work of light application surface cleaning.
V50t with twin
Twin engine options offering performance and flexibility for truck mounted sweepers. Being independent of the truck chassis, the sweeper auxiliary engine powers the sweeping functions and vacuum system so both engine and chassis can be tailored to the application and customer preferences. A wide range of chassis can also be supplied with either manual, automatic or automated gearboxes providing a wide range of options to suit the operator.
The V50t is supplied with a JCB 55 kW industrial engine as standard, designed for operating in dusty environment. Providing 410 Nm of torque at 1250 rpm the Stage 5 engine is ideally suited for applications where higher suction power is required; for example more arduous road construction operations (EU27 only).
Throttle control of the auxiliary engine is infinitely variable ensuring optimum operational and fuel efficiency with no performance compromised. With a 1500 rev Eco-mode built into the VT50, fuel conservation and noise levels are enhanced.
Once set to operating performance, the twin engine sweeper system will perform at the same level regardless of gradient and travel speed. The sweeping operation can be paused or stopped easily and sweep gear lifted to allow the driver to transit from one location to another without having to disengage a separate drive.
V50h with hydrostatic
The patented hydrostatic drive option is ideal for built up areas such as towns and cities where sweeping speed and control are an advantage.
These single engine hydrostatic gearbox truck mounted sweepers provide the best control during the sweeping operation and allows the driver to have infinite travel speed from 0 to 40km/h. With the cruise control option the operator can set the ideal sweep speed and concentrate on sweeping. The chassis is driven via the standard truck gearbox in transit mode and when the sweeper is required to sweep, the operator engages the hydrostatic drive system. Maintenance is only required on one engine but the single engine is working at high load more often.
The patented hydrostatic gearbox can work with large chassis engines up to 280 hp.
The HGB2 gearbox can handle high torque transmissions with engines up to 280 hp. Operators wishing to use high power engines can sweep efficiently without overloading the gearbox. The single engine sweeper uses the fuel tank from the chassis or the sweeper 190 litre fuel tank, allowing longer on station time. The hydrostatic drive system is lighter than the equivalent twin engine sweeper, allowing more pay load.
V50m with PTO
The V50m is a single engine truck mounted machine and is offered alongside our existing truck mounted machines. All sweeping functions are driven directly by the chassis engine PTO rather than our auxiliary engine options of the VT or the hydrostatic gearbox option of the VS.
The V50m powapack is similar to the V50h using a 800 mm diameter hydraulically driven fan impellor, but in place of a hydrostatic gearbox the V50m has a large 130 cc hydraulic fan pump which is directly driven by a drive shaft from the chassis engine PTO.
The hydraulic fan pump in turn drives a gear pump which controls all sweeping equipment, and, in the event of supawash being selected then a tandem pump is fitted to run the additional hydraulic required.
The V50m has been designed to operate at maximum sweeper performance at just 1000 rpm of the chassis engine.
The chassis engine rpm may increased, either with the chassis cruise control (chassis dependant) or the foot pedal. This increases the forward speed of the vehicle but does not increase sweeper performance as it will have already attained maximum suction performance at 1000 rpm.
All this combines to keep fuel consumption, noise and forward speed to a minimum.
