OPERATION

Once the Enviro Buggy is charged and an area has been identified to clean, the operator removes the vacuum pipe from its bracket, straps up, and switches the unit on as instructed. The operator then easily chooses the strength of suctioning, the direction, and the speed at which he/she wants to move. The speed is increased or decreased by using the hand-throttle which, when released, the buggy will stop driving immediately.

The operator aims the vacuum pipe at the litter on the ground, the pipe vacuums up plastic and debris smaller than 100mm in diameter. The debris is then sucked into the main collection bin that contains two different sized filtration baskets.

The first filter basket catches the larger items, and the second filter basket catches the smaller items, as well as allows sand to drop through to the trap door area. The sand is then released by opening the trap door at the bottom of the collection bin. The filtered plastic and organic debris which is caught in the two filter baskets can be removed by lifting the baskets out of the main collection bin. The waste should preferably be ecologically disposed of.
