The litter picker is built on a more powerful and sturdier truck chassis, the machine has higher container volume of 3,500-litres as compared to the small litter pickers which has a volume of 300-400-litres. This the company says enhances the productivity of the vehicle and can be used continuously for a much longer time. The machine has an auxiliary engine, which operates as a compressor as well as drive the vacuum suction centrifugal blower. The material being suctioned is separated from the airstream with the help of a cyclonic separator installed in the machine container hopper of volume 3,500-litres. The fine dust is further separated from the airstream by the imported cartridge bag filters provided in the container, ensuring only clean air is exhausted from the machine’s centrifugal blower discharge.
The product does not require manual handling of the collected waste as the material collected is being suctioned directly in the machine collection hopper and is being discharged by hydraulic tipping of the container. The collected spillages in the machine hopper are taken to the dumping ground and are discharged by hydraulic tipping of the container. The discharge door locking and lifting is also hydraulic assisted. Though the bag filters are being continuously cleaned with automatic compressed air purging system, there is no need of frequent replacement of collection bags. The vehicle is designed to suction horticulture spillages like leaves, horticulture waste; and littered spillages like small cans, water bottles, cardboard boxes, plastic boxes etc. lying alongside the road.
