What is This System?


This is a large vacuum system with a fully articulated nozzle useful for sweeping up trash and debris in hard to reach areas. The "Automated Roadway Debris VACuum" or "ARDVAC" allows an operator to use a joystick and position the “vacuum cleaner” nozzle while staying in the safety of the cab.

When to Use This System?


This system can be used in many places where a street sweeper can not reach and where it is dangerous for humans to be outside. Significant benifits can be seen when used in the median areas such as: paved guardrail, paved transitions, unpaved guardrails, unpaved transitions, and ditches. Similar benifits can been seen on roadsides.
