We have been growing our roadbrush business significantly over the last few months and to help us cope with the demand we have brought another new brush into the fleet this weekend. We chose the Daf and Johnston VT652 duo again due to the service we receive from the dealers and the minimal downtime we receive on these units.

This brush has came equipped with the usual spec including dual sweep, high pressure lance, wide suction boxes, gully sucker and for added safety rear and side cameras, reverse alarm and a blind spot window to give the operator better vision.

This brush will be on the road Monday and available for hire immediately. Please call our office on 01560 482136 and speak to Keith or Nikki to discuss your requirements.

Following requests from our customer base for Dual View dumpers on their sites we have recently purchased two Wacker Neuson DV90 dual view 9ton dumpers.

These machines are equipped with a High driving position & high working position for an Optimal view for more safety plus the option to drive in two positions thanks to the rotary Console in the cab. The attached video in the next post shows how this works.

We have also equipped these dumpers with hi viz steps and hand rails, green seatbelt beacons & reversing alarms.

The added bonus of these trucks is that they can be operated on a FTD ticket so the operatives on site can still use these.

These two machines are heading straight out to site this morning for a weekend job but will be available immediately from Monday with or without a CPCS operator. If they are of interest to you please call the office on 01560 482136 to discuss your requirements.

Great to see the SPOA Promoting the industry we all work in.

Hopefully this event and the others we are demonstrating at throughout Scotland will help to attract the younger generation into our industry and combat the operator shortages we will face in years to come.

Well done.
