No Combustion – No Emissions
Unlike most Airport sweepers the TracSweep® FODBuster® line are built on light trailers, not heavy, gas-guzzling trucks. Weighing only 780 lbs / 353 kg (model FBR-8, empty weight), it can be towed by virtually any ground support vehicles.
Available in several different sizes and configurations to meet any need!Get Pricing!
SIDE-MOUNTED DEBRIS HOPPERS
Unload FOD safely and easily. The TracSweep® efficiently deposits debris in easily accessible hoppers. Slide out, empty debris, slide back in. Each hopper will hold approximately 40-50 lbs / 18-23 kg.
DURABLE NYLON BRUSHES
The best long term durability and sweeping action available in a non-metallic bristle. Our nylon brushes will last twice as long as polypropylene alternatives. Replacement is easy and quick (20 minutes).
PINTLE HOOK OR BALL HITCH
With a full 21 inches of adjustment you can tow the TracSweep® behind virtually any vehicle, including high-clearance vehicles. Every unit also includes an adjustable wheeled support jack with foot brake.
MAGNETIC SWEEPER OPTION
Attach one of our optional POWER BAR™ Magnetic Sweepers to remove large and small ferrous metal debris that may be hiding below the surface in aircraft tie-downs, grounding points or concrete expansion joints.
ADJUSTABLE SWEEPING HEIGHT
A threaded stainless steel rod attached to a single hand crank makes adjusting brush height easy and fast. Turning the crank clockwise to raise the brush or turning the crank counter clockwise to lower the brush permits a very light bristle-to-ground contact which is all that’s needed with our superior nylon brushes.
DETACHABLE TOW BAR
Quick and easy deployment via air or truck if needed. With the tow bar detached and strapped to the unit, you can ship or store the sweeper in a vertical position, reducing space requirements.
