Road Sweeping Street Kings
Construction industry supplier, Mick George Ltd, has taken delivery of two brand new truck-mounted ‘Street King 660’ sweepers from Aebi Schmidt to tackle a number of clean-up operations throughout East Anglia and East Midlands, where the organisation predominantly operates.
Renowned as a leading supplier to the construction industry, Mick George Ltd specialises in Aggregate Supply, Waste Management, Concrete, Earthworks and Demolition, and is regularly contracted to handle clean-up works for major construction projects, which often results in mud, stones and other debris causing disruption to local networks.
To combat the problem and limit the impact on local communities, Mick George Ltd selected two of Aebi Schmidt’s revolutionary ‘Street King 660’ sweepers which, with their robust design, hard-wearing components and innovative features, are perfect for tackling tough, demanding jobs of this magnitude.
The ‘Street Kings’ are fitted with two 16 tonne DAF Euro 6 LF chassis, which generate 230bhp, and also feature high pressure water systems, which can deliver up to 30 litres per minute at 200 bar through a high pressure front spray bar. Both vehicles are also fitted with optional rear door-mounted Wander hoses with hydraulic assist to help the removal of coarse dirt and stones.
In addition, the specification selected by Mick George Ltd includes the ‘Street King’s’ unique rear roller brushes located behind the suction nozzles, which ensure a full vehicle width mechanical sweep, even when turning. And to complete, the new state-of-the-art Evolution Smart (ES) control panel is built in.
Steve Halliday, Sales Manager at Ford and Slater said: “Although this model has only been in commission since the end of April, feedback from the drivers has been very positive and we’re confident it will be the best solution for Mick George Ltd.”
Richard Bryant, Managing Director of Aebi Schmidt UK, said: “Thanks to our excellent working relationship with local truck dealer, Ford and Slater, we are delighted to have been able to supply Mick George Ltd with our new Street King sweeper.’’
