Vammas SB5505

The airport sweeper-blower SB5505 is the latest generation of VAMMAS equipment, which represent a new level of efficiency when it comes to snow removal. The futuristic design, reliability and optimised fuel consumption are just some of the advantages of the new VAMMAS sweeper-blowers. The position of the engine and the hydraulic systems above the truck chassis is a major innovation which optimises the load distribution and enables more efficient and faster operation.

The SB5505 model is designed for use on aprons, taxiways and runways and their easy operation means that they can be quickly deployed in the event of a sudden deterioration in weather conditions. The combination of the plough, sweeper and blower ensures maximum performance even when operating at speeds above 60 km/h. This sweeper-blower has a quick release plough and a broom transporting position, for easy storage in any maintenance facility.
