The FOD * BOSS Ultimate Airfield Sweeper
From the largest International Airport, to the smallest regional airstrip, the FOD* BOSS completes the absolute FOD control
This extraordinary patented sweeper is the only equipment designed exclusively for collecting FOD. Debris such as nuts and bolts, pavement fragments, washers, rivets, stones, sand and gravel is collected simply, inexpensively with amazing speed (up to 40kph/25mph) and efficiency at a pick-up rate un-matched by any other sweeper.
EASY TO USE: COMPACT AND PORTABLE
Easy to use by one person, it is simply towed by any motorised vehicle. No special licenses or skills are required. At low speeds using a compact tow vehicle, it can be used right up to and around parked aircraft. The FOD* BOSS has no motor, no noise, is simple,reliable and can’t break down.
It is maintenance free and guaranteed.
The complete unit including the special safety release tow hitch folds into a storage bag that measures 2.5 metres (8 feet 4 inches) long by 300 millimetres (12 inches) in diameter and has a total weight of less than 30 kg (66 lbs). In the event of a FOD emergency, the FOD* BOSS can be transported easily and rapidly to the site to deal with the problem ensuring minimum delay to aircraft operations.
The low cost means it is affordable by even the smallest Airports, allowing access to the same high standards of FOD control as those implemented by larger Airports without the high capital and service costs of complex machinery.
Regional Airports can now afford to have FOD sweeping equipment available 24 hours a day.
Airline Maintenance facilities will find the FOD* BOSS indispensable in ensuring FOD free hard stand areas.
DOUBLE & TRIPLE YOUR SWEEPING CAPACITY
With a duplex hitch, sweep 4.8m(16’) wide and with the Triplex trailer you can sweep a huge 7m(22’) width at up to 25 Kph – more than 4 times the capacity of conventional suction sweepers.
The triplex trailer also doubles as a convenient transport and storage device.
ENVIRONMENTALLY CLEAN AND SILENT
Battery electrical powered vehicles can tow the FOD* BOSS with ease making it the only FOD sweeper with this desirable capability.
The FOD* BOSS is low impact on aircraft movement surfaces reducing pavement damage often caused by heavy sweeping machinery.
Its quiet operation makes it convenient to use around the clock in noise sensitive areas
3-IN-1 PATENTED TECHNOLOGY
Groundforce™ Tow Hitch
This wind resistant hitch stabilises and holds your FOD*BOSS to the tarmac tracking it straight behind the vehicle keeping debris safely in the capture zones.
Debris Retention Blade™
This critical feature ensures maximum retention of collected debris. The elevator ribs assist in FOD capture by moving it upwards and over the retaining edge.
FODStop™ Barrier System
FODStop barriers are built into the capture zones to assist in stopping debris from sliding sideways. They help divide the collected FOD keeping it spaced evenly even when cornering providingmaximum collection and retention.
TOUGH AND DURABLE – PROVEN PERFORMANCE
Extensive research and development combined with exhaustive field trials and many years of operational experience has resulted in a product manufactured from the toughest wearing components. This, combined with the best construction techniques ensures a long and efficient service life. The FOD* BOSS is constantly proving its value at airports large and small and Military bases around the world.

Concrete, asphalt, interlock paving, fine textured spray seal, smooth or grooved, wet or dry, it’s all easy going for the FOD* BOSS.
It does not use vacuum suction so there is no danger of lifting pavement surfaces, even when freshly laid. It does not retain water and works equally well in the rain.
This unique Speed Sweeping System uses a remarkable action invented out of necessity to deal with FOD control at airports and military bases. Each FOD* BOSS incorporates a series of tough, long wearing brushes that activate the FOD which is then collected by rows of specially formulated Aero-thane scoops and entrapped by a retaining mesh. The FOD* BOSS adjusts automatically as it wears ensuring constant FOD collection.
No service is required to maintain efficiency, if it’s moving – you know it’s working. It does not rely upon magnetic force and is equally effective on ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects.
The FOD* BOSS is designed to collect debris over broad areas quickly, efficiently and inexpensively. Collected debris is easily recoverable for critical analysis.
