Intelligent functions and award-winning design: Holder presents the KS 1200 – a new type of sweeper-suction machine
11. June 2017
The municipal vehicle manufacturer Holder is bringing the new KS 1200 sweeper-suction combination to the market for its implement carriers in the mid-range performance class (50 to 67 HP).
Until recently good sweepers have predominantly been single-purpose vehicles, as attachment solutions were unable to match the specialists. The KS 1200 sweeper suction combination developed specifically for Holder is setting new standards in this field. It comes with many innovative functions that make the driver's working life much easier. The suction hose running down the side of the vehicle will be a significant advantage – the ease of accessibility means that it 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 nozzle provide excellent cleaning results.
The hopper is made of high-performance stainless steel and has a gross volume of 1200 litres. Combined with the smart water recirculation system, the water remains in the container if it is tipped, ensuring a high reach. The sweeping width is 1900 mm in the standard version and can be extended by a third brush.
Its narrow design and agile articulated steering enable narrow pavements and park paths, large car parks and entire residential and industrial areas to be swept efficiently. As the B 250 is less than two metres high and has an exhaust opening in the rear section of the vehicle, it is also ideal for cleaning multi-storey and underground car parks in particular. The KS 1200 has also been designed to run extremely quietly.
Here too, the Holder System is consistently designed to be multifunctional – the sweeper-suction combination can be converted into a full-sized mowing-suction combination in under five minutes and without changing the container. A high-pressure cleaner for cleaning the vehicle or difficult-to-reach objects is also integrated.
