Sweeper-suction combination KS 1200 / KS 1600 for the Holder B, C and S series

The innovative and highly functional sweeping machines KS 1200 and KS 1600 guarantee high quality and excellent cleaning results.

Sweepers with added value

The sweeper-suction combinations KS 1200 (for the B and C series) and KS 1600 (for the S series) impress with their modern, award-winning design and intelligent functions. They combine the performance and reach of a single-purpose vehicle with the advantages of a multi-functional implement carrier. They produce minimal fine particulate emissions and received the best award in the PM10 and PM2.5 test as part of the EUnited certification.

Sweeper-suction combination KS 1200 with a third brush

The suction hose running down the side of the vehicle can be used as fully integrated manual suction. The design also means that the suction hose can be checked and cleaned much more easily. The asymmetrical sweeping brush and the aerodynamically optimised suction mouth provide excellent cleaning results.

The hopper is made of high-performance stainless steel and has a gross volume of 1200 l (KS 1200) and 1500 l (KS 1600). Combined with the smart water recirculation system, whereby the water remains in the container if tipping occurs, it ensures a long reach. The sweeping width is 2000 mm on the standard version and can be extended by a third brush (optional weed brush).

The slim design and manoeuvrable articulated steering mean that a wide range of surfaces can be swept efficiently. As the vehicle is less than two metres high and has an exhaust opening on the rear section of the vehicle, it is also particularly ideal for cleaning multi-storey car parks and underground car parks.

The sweeping-suction combination has also been designed to be extremely quiet.

Equipment: sweeping-suction combination KS 1200 / KS 1600

  • Robust stainless steel container with usable container volume of 0.8 m³ (KS 1200) and 1,12 m³ (KS 1600)
  • Noise reduction thanks to a fan that is positioned at the bottom
  • Noise and fuel reduction since the maximum suction is reached at just 1750 rpm
  • No refuelling of the circulating water necessary, because a bottom valve in the container prevents the circulating water from draining when the hopper is tipped
  • Optimum dust binding thanks to the intelligent circulating water system: The circulating water in the dirt tank flows back into the dirty water tank and is moved into the suction hose for dust binding
  • Safe access to the suction hose for servicing and cleaning, as well as easy use of the suction hose as a hand-held suction hose with a diameter of 17.5 cm: The entire suction hose can be detached from the suction mouth during operation in just a few simple steps
  • Integrated leaf rake to quickly remove stuck-on leaves without having to open the container
  • Integrated high-pressure cleaner incl. 12 m hose, 17 l/min at 150 bar
  • Multifunctional: When combined with a mower, it can also be used as a mowing container
  • Flexibly adaptable sweeper with individual brush control and simultaneous control; for example, to sweep out parking spaces
  • Protection of the brushes and improved sweeping results thanks to the left- and right-hand independent hydraulic brush relief
  • Optimum dust binding thanks to the fresh water nozzles on the brushes
  • Quick key for sweeping on a second level
  • Excellent view of the swept material thanks to the integrated suction mouth camera
  • Collision protection for the brush arms and brush plates
  • Shortening of the suction hose and easy operation thanks to the suction mouth being on the right and the asymmetrical brushes
  • Easy operation thanks to the fixed setting of the larger left-hand brush and the flexible control of the right-hand brush when sweeping
  • Single-handed operation: All operating elements are clearly arranged on the joystick
  • Can be quickly and easily replaced with a mower in less than five minutes
  • Now with a third brush: every 2-brush system can be easily retrofitted at any time (optionally as a weed brush)
