Schwarze A7 Tornado

The A7 Tornado, a superior performance solution for all airport surface cleaning needs including road sweeping, ramp debris and litter removal, high-speed runway sweeping, high-speed air blast cleaning, glycol removal and catch basin vacuuming. Options include CNG or diesel, high powered-magnets for ferrous metals, catch basin vacuum, and side air blast. 


The FOD BOSS works by capturing debris as it passes over the tarmac. The force of friction and a series of specially designed brushes scoop up foreign objects and hold them in an easy to empty mesh capture zone. With a sweep width of 2.4 meters (8 feet), 4.8 meters (16 feet), or 7.2 meters (24 feet), the FOD BOSS can clean up to 300,000 square meters (3 million square feet) per hour, at speeds from 6 kph (4 mph) to 40 kph (25 mph).
