Debris is swept into the nozzle path by a side broom and extension broom located underneath the machine, where it is efficiently lifted up by the suction airflow and deposited in the debris body. The GeoVac is powered by an efficient 99 hp John Deere® Tier 2 auxiliary engine and controlled by direct-touch rocker switches. It features an 8-cubic-yard hopper, 330 gallons of water for dust suppression and a full 8.5-ft. sweep path. Maintenance is simplified with a convenient service module, accessible with an easy-store ladder and automatic full-width gull wing doors that open with the push of a button.
