The Vammas ST (Snow Tractor) / SB (Sweeper Blower) 5500 offer the highest capacity in a modular multi-tasking design for use at North American and European airports. Vammas ST/SB units are manufactured in Ottumwa Iowa to the highest standards of quality for operator ergonomics, safety and reliability. The superior ergonomics for the ST include 360 degree visibility, single joy stick operation with air ride and heated seat providing optimum operator comfort for the demanding work required.
