Business to Business and asset funding specialist Dawsongroup plc has taken delivery of 75 IVECO Eurocargo 16-tonne municipality vehicles (ML160E22K), complete with Bucher Municipal sweeper bodies to add to Europe’s largest short and long term sweeper rental fleet.

Roadsweepers might not cover huge mileage, but they need to be durable as their mission involves heavy equipment and a demanding stop/start environment. The Eurocargo is an ideal platform for this challenging mission courtesy of its tough 3350mm purpose-built sweeper chassis which delivers excellent manoeuvrability in busy urban environments.

Dorking-based Bucher Municipal supplied and fitted the truck-mounted bodies taking full advantage of the 16-tonne GVW to create a body that is highly functional and also very robust. As a result, this vehicle’s payload is circa 6,600kg.

Each vehicle is left-hand drive with Dawsongroup emc fitting FORS standard safety equipment to enable each one to work in urban areas in complete safety, in particular London. All vehicles are also equipped with Chapter 8 rear signage as well as 360-degree cameras to boost visibility and meet strict DSV standards.

Highly efficient 220hp Tector 7 six-cylinder diesel engines coupled to a 12-speed automated gearbox provide plentiful power and torque for this heavy-duty workload while also meeting the latest Euro VI emission requirements.

Supplied by Northern Commercials Brighouse, Dawsongroup are no strangers to Eurocargo roadsweepers with previous vehicles recently being de-fleeted after up to four years of operation.

Glen Carruthers, Dawsongroup Managing Director said: “We have run IVECO products before so we know they are very strong and practical for these tough operating conditions. We have already seen some vehicles go out on longer term hire with councils.

“All of our IVECO road sweepers have been supplied by Northern Commercials Brighouse who are based on the same industrial estate as us. Geographically they are very handy, but we have always received great service and have built up an excellent relationship over the years. Something that makes this a strong partnership.”

Each of these Eurocargo roadsweepers has been supplied on an IVECO Planned Repair & Maintenance service contract, helping Dawsongroup ensure maintenance costs are more predictable.
