Plymouth City Council chooses Dennis RCVs

Published:  01 November, 2012

Plymouth City Council has recently ordered 10 new RCVs from Dennis Eagle, seven of which are rear steer vehicles that will be used within the inner city area. Due to being rear steer, the vehicles have improved mobility, making it easier for operators to access the narrow inner city streets. They also have a greater payload capability, which reduces the amount of journeys the vehicles have to make to be emptied.

Paul Hobday, Regional Sales Manager for Dennis Eagle, comments: “Plymouth had used Dennis Eagle vehicles for several years in the past so it's always nice to see a customer return. We're pleased the vehicles are proving to be positive additions to their fleet and hope to continue working with Plymouth City Council for many more years to come.”

Colin Mee, Waste Services Manager for Plymouth City Council, said: “The vehicles we recently ordered have been operating within the inner city area and because of their manoeuvrability and greater payload we have been able to reduce the number of journeys the vehicles have to make.”
