The Client

RAAF Base Amberley is a Royal Australian Air Force military airbase located 8 km southwest of Ipswich, Queensland and 50 km southwest of Brisbane.

It is currently home to SEVERAL Squadrons.

The Challenge

The Military Base was looking to minimize FOD.

Small stones and dust that comes loose from the concrete aprons can severely damage the Fighter aircraft’s engines.

The Result.

The ASC’s Rafael Rodrigues suggested the RAAF invest in the heavy duty ASC M3 sweeper.

The mid-size rider M3 sweeper was the best solution for the base as the side brushes were able to pull all of the small debris out of the concrete cracks.

Coupled with good dust extraction on the filtration system, the M3 cleaned the surface flawlessly without dust discharge.
