Airport Runway Sweeping Trucks

The runway is one of the most critical locations to maintain for safe air travel. A key method to preventing airplane accidents is a runway sweeper that can tackle foreign object debris (FOD). FOD refers to any out-of-place debris, substances or objects that can harm a plane on the runway. Many airports hire entire crews to sweep and visually check for the smallest potential obstacles on the runway.

Stewart-Amos Sweeper Co. offers powerful mechanical brooms and regenerative air sweepers to tackle your runway cleanup. Trust the sweeper truck company that has sold these solutions to businesses like yours for over 70 years. Whether you operate a private taxi service or a large commercial airport, we have an airport FOD sweeper solution for you. Our team can help you find the perfect machine to handle your runway’s size with the speed and efficiency you need.

Benefits of Owning an Airfield Sweeper

FOD detection and removal is a necessary process for every airport. Industrial-strength machinery like a runway sweeper can automate the process with superior quality, faster speeds and lower costs.

There are several more benefits to purchasing an airfield sweeper:

  • Quality assurance: Sweeping FOD can be a life-saving part of air travel preparation. When you own a sweeper truck, you can maintain the highest standard of excellence and select your best operators.
  • Capital Investment: Equipment ownership is an excellent investment for airports. You can sell, rent and modify your truck at will to make a profit or recover from a loss.
  • Cost Savings: FOD accidents can occur from debris as small as a piece of wire. Regularly sweeping with a powerful truck can minimize the financial and humanitarian risks of destruction of equipment and injury to employees.

Mechanical and Regenerative Air Sweeper Trucks

The Stewart-Amos Sweeper Co. currently manufactures the Galaxy line of sweeper trucks with regenerative air technology and the Starfire line of sweepers with mechanical brooms. Regenerative air machines capture hard-to-reach, ultrafine contaminants and dust trapped in cracks in the asphalt. Mechanical brooms break down large debris with highly abrasive bristles and use an internal conveyor belt to deliver the debris to the hopper.

Both solutions fit different scenarios. For example, a regenerative air model might be perfect for an industrial airport where dust may hide in asphalt surfaces. If the debris on your runway tends to be larger, a mechanical runway sweeper may be the best solution. Whatever your application and unique circumstances, Stewart-Amos Sweeper Co. can guide you to the optimal equipment.
