David White Transport Manager and Mark Fellows Regional Sales Manager for Scarab Sweepers pictured with the new Scarab Minors.
In addition to the two Scarab road sweepers on the Fayat stand, Scarab had a further 5 road sweepers across the showground. The week long exhibition was supported by a good number of our existing dealer network, some of whom brough customers to see the people and products on show.
Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Radstock Depot is home to a new Scarab Minor, which considering the areas long proud history of mining seems very appropriate and joins a Scarab Merlin XP already in service there. Area Manager for the Council, Wayne Honey ensured that his operators all had a significant voice in choosing the right machine for the job and influencing the specification too.
Able to travel at up to 40 mph, the Minor easily copes with the large distances required of the machine as it works mainly in the Keynsham district, some considerable distance from the Radstock Depot and is equipped with high discharge to enable tipping into skips. A rear vision camera makes discharging the hopper a straightforward task and with the added bonus of high pressure wash, on site cleaning can also be carried out with ease.
The main driver, Pete Brown commented that the Scarab road sweeper was ideal for his needs, loving the “sweeping performance and easiness of maintenance” and being “glad that Wayne “allowed him to have such a big say in choosing his new machine”.
Enfield Council have recently taken delivery of two new Scarab Merlin Xp hydrostatic sweepers Mounted on Daf 45 7.5t chassis. The two new vehicles will be replacing a 15 tonne sweeper from another manufacturer. The reasons for doing this include increased resilience within the service, improved flexibility as the service no longer requires an HGV qualified driver and improved support to residential sweeping teams operating across the borough.
These well specified Scarab Merlin Xp’s will fit into Enfield Council’s current fleet very well, by offering heavy truck mount performance, with the manoeuvrability of a smaller machine. Environmental wins are an added feature of the Merlin Xp, the sweeper offers to Enfield lower fuel consumption and a reduced Co2 output, when compared to the previous twin engine machine.
David Coventry, Street Scene Section Manager said, we are very pleased with our new Scarab Merlin sweepers, they will offer real improvements to the service in a way that our residents will recognise a difference, like any business improving customer satisfaction, in this case our residents, is key to our success. Our staff feel at home in the sweeper and the machines, procured within a competive market, have arrived at a time when we need to ensure that all of London is looking at it’s best for the Olympics.
The two Scarab Merlin Xps, pictured below include duel sweep, high pressure wash, cctv camera system and an extra side locker to aid storage. Drivers feel the benefits of “home comforts” whilst at work within a package that offers attention to detail, in the sweepers design, in build quality and in subsequent performance which when taken as a package guarantees an excellent tool for the trade.
