The Newport-based operator has already commissioned two new trucks, a 26-tonne Arocs 2540L and an 18-tonne 1824K, from local Dealer Euro Commercials (South Wales). Two more – a second Arocs 2540L and a 32-tonne Arocs 3240K – are due to enter service in September.
The first of the six-wheelers featured on the stand of bodybuilder Fuller Tankers at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show. It has a rear-steer axle for enhanced manoeuvrability and is fitted with a 3,200-gallon vacuum tank for sludge removal.
The four-wheeler, meanwhile, is equipped with Hyva skip-loading gear. It is now servicing the Carmathenshire region, following GD Environmental’s acquisition of Llanelli-based Skip Solutions in March.
The second 6×2 chassis is also being bodied by Fuller Tankers at its factory in Chepstow. Specified for culvert and large diameter sewer cleaning, this vehicle will be fitted with a 3,000-gallon tank, 2,000 gallons of which will be used to carry clean water, and a high-performance pump capable of jetting 90 gallons per minute.
The 8×4 Arocs 3240K will complete the quartet. Fitted with Hyvalift 32 hook-loading equipment and an auto sheeting system at Hyva’s production facility in Trafford Park, Manchester, it will be capable of handling roll-on/roll-off eurobins with capacities of up to 50 cubic yards.
