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 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 motorized vehicle. No special
licenses or skills are required. At low
speeds using a compact tow vehicle, it can
be used with complete safety 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 meters (8 feet
4 inches) long by 300 millimeters (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 cost of complex
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 2.4m wide and
with the Triplex trailer you can sweep a
huge 7m(22’) width at up to 25 Kmph –more
than 4 times the capacity of conventional
The triplex trailer also doubles as a
convenient transport and storage device.
The FOD*BOSS will out perform any mechanical
sweeper in single, Duplex or Triplex
configuration: in speed and efficiency,
CLEAN AND SILENT
Battery electrical powered vehicle 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 by noise sensitive

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 values at
airport large and small and Military bases
around the world. Please ask for a list
clients to refer to.
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 invited 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 adjust 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
dangerous debris over broad areas quickly,
efficiently and inexpensively. Collected
debris is easily recoverable for critical
RANGE OF ADAPTORS AND ACCESSORIES
The FOD*BOSS has a complete range of
accessories available Adaptors to suit every
type of ground support and military vehicle.
FOD doesn’t just damages engines and injure
personal, it also damages tyres, both on
aircraft and ground support vehicles.
We have the figures that prove the FOD*BOSS
will cut these costs in half, guaranteed
(Delta Airlines Test, September – November).

MILITARY OPERATIONS – WAR READINESS KIT –
The FOD*BOSS is a precision FOD sweeper
proven to be outstanding in its ability to
prevent Foreign Object Damage to the highly
vulnerable jet engines of fighter aircraft.
The compact portability of the FOD*BOSS
affords incredible versatility and
convenience to Forward Operations Units
preparing for military exercises at short
notice and at bases under equipped or seldom
The low cost and easy operation means
individual squadrons can ensure their own
flight line FOD control.
The FOD*BOSS was deployed at this US
Airforce base and incurred zero FOD
incidents for the following seven quarters.
Air Force Tested – NATO Listed – Air Forces
around the world have tested and now operate
the FOD*BOSS, these including the USAF, RAF,
RAAF, Italian AF, Canadian AF, and defence
forces in France, Belgium, Spain and
Finland. The FOD*BOSS has been allocated
