As most of our work covers both municipal street cleansing and heavier duty work, we have found the Johnston VT range to be the most efficient in both performance and efficiency, and as such the V range represents over 95% of our fleet. From personal experience we find that the Johnston V Range delivers consistently high pick-up performance when collecting both road planings and inert waste from construction sites and access roads.
Available in dual or single sweep configuration, the maximum 3.6m sweep path ensures superb coverage per hour – and with high capacity hoppers, water systems and fuel tanks, UBU specification sweepers are designed to stay at work for longer which means you get more value for money! All of our Road Sweepers are powered by a dedicated high-performance auxiliary engine.
Our vehicles also offer a great balance between performance and environmental impact. Nearly 80% of the UBU fleet are fitted with Euro 6 Engines as well as specialist equipment that helps us use water more efficiently. Euro 6 Engines contribute to less harmful emissions into the air than older engines, helping to minimise our carbon footprint and give us cleaner air as well as a cleaner surface!
Please note we also have a range of other cleaning machines which may be more suitable for your specific cleaning requirements. Please check our services to see what we can offer, or get in touch with our dedicated Hire Desk team to discuss the most suitable options for your project.

A high pressure water system for faster cleaning of gullies and drains using a hose and hand lance. Water can also be diverted to a front-mounted full-width spray bar or suction nozzle to help remove stubborn road debris from your surface.
This rigid hose with a flexible extension enables the road sweeper to park next to any standard road gully and suck out any silt or debris, before resealing it with fresh water.
For any pits or chambers deeper than standard road gullies, UBU also operates a fleet of Jet Vac Tankers that have the equipment to remove material from distances up to 80 metres.
This significantly increases sweeping productivity by allowing greater distances to be swept before the tank needs to be refilled. Water recirculation not only provides extended sweeping shifts but can also save 900 litres of water per day over an 8-hour shift.

Just a few of the clients we work with...
I have been aware of UBU environmental services for over 15 years now whilst I have worked at Manchester Airport. In this time I have worked for 2 principal contractors providing construction services within the maintenance framework of the Airport business.
UBU have been the dominant provider of road sweeper services offering a professional approach to the demanding and dynamic aviation environment. UBU have remained competitive on pricing whilst being flexible on providing cover at short notice when needed.
The vehicle fleet is of a high standard able to meet the rigorous safety checks set by the Civil Aviation Authority. UBU drivers and office staff have been consistent in their customer service awareness, always helpful and friendly.
Overall a great company to work with.
