VT LeeBoy’s Challenger V self-propelled broom features a 7-foot brush by Sweepster, new joystick controls that put all brush functions at the operator’s fingertips, and improved operator visibility. LeeBoy says the Sweepster brush core is easy to change, and claims its own variable-down-pressure system reduces brush wear. The brush can be angled +/- 40 degrees and rear steering allows the unit to pivot around its own center, for an inside turning radius of 3 feet. A 150-gallon pressurized brush watering system can be enlisted to control dust. The 7,500-pound Challenger V is powered by an 80-hp Cat diesel.
