Vammas SB


Vammas SB series tow-behind sweepers have been used in high speed snow removal in all sizes of commercial and military airports. The units are manufactured to the highest standards of quality, speed, reliability and simplicity.

Vammas SB series units share the same design principles and standard components as other Vammas units. The units are fast to couple to the fifth wheel or drawbar coupling of the towing truck. In transport position the broom turns parallel to the frame.

Low capital investment with high operating speed.

Vammas tow-behind sweepers are built to operate at speed up to 60 km/h thanks to the use of on-highway truck components and unique design of the broom assembly. Operators only require short training since they are already familiar with driving a standard truck. Trucks can be used for other tasks in and out of season.

New technology available for every Vammas SB Snow unit for safety and performance.

The Vammas SB-sweepers have several standard and optional features to ensure a high performance:

• Remote control unit with graphical display and single control joystick

• Rear wheel steering for better guidance of the plow, broom and air-blower

• ABS brakes for increased safety

• Broom automatically rises when unit is reversed

• Self diagnostics

• Automatic broom pattern control

• Latest engine technology improving emissions, power and fuel consumption

• Latest technology of hydraulic and electrical components

• High standard anti-corrosion protection
