Truck Mount – VT501


Power and performance packaged for the CityLighter chassis but the same heavy duty power.


With a 3000mm wheel base, when mounted on a 12T chassis, the VT501 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 VT501 has an overall height of 2880mm (chassis dependant) and carries 1000 litres of water whilst giving a 4T payload to achieve high productivity and prolonged on-station working.

Robust Construction

With a heavy duty, corrosion resistant stainless steel body, the Johnston VT501 is robust and built for unrivalled durability. Mounted to the sub-frame, the hydraulically operated sweeping system is designed to prolong brush life which reduces the cost of ownership. Both channel and wide-sweep brush installations feature quick-change mechanisms, reducing downtime between changeovers.

In-Cab Controls

Sweeping operations are controlled from the master module inside the cab, while critical systems controls – including master circuit breaker, valves and auxiliary equipment for the pneumatic, hydraulic and water systems – are housed in a purpose built, dust proof and weather proof locker. The VT501 also benefits from IP67 automotive electrical connectors to enhance reliability.

Advanced Hopper Design

With years of experience in hopper design coupled with dedicated research, Johnston have developed a unique hopper void which creates a cyclone filtering dust and debris particles prior to discharge to atmosphere through filter mesh screens. This unique design is a standard feature of all Johnston V Range sweepers.
