Iveco back with New Eurocargo sweepers

Published:  06 May, 2016

Iveco has re-entered the road sweeper market after a joint design and development project with Johnston Sweepers launched at the CV Show.

Models will be based on the New Eurocargo sweeper chassis and will be offered in 7.5, 12, 15 and 18 tonne models, and in left-hand drive, right-hand drive and dual steer variants.

Iveco product director Martin Flach said: “We see significant potential for New Eurocargo in this specialist market and have worked closely with the team at Johnston Sweepers to optimise the vehicle and body features.

“The low-speed environment and frequent stop/start nature of sweeper work is a perfect match for our HI-SCR technology. We're confident that sweeper operators will recognise the clear advantages of a Euro VI solution which avoids the need for forced regeneration.”

The launch model at the CV Show was a New Eurocargo 150E25K chassis, built on a 3,690mm wheelbase and featuring a 12-speed EuroTronic gearbox.

New Eurocargo models destined for Johnston Sweepers will first be converted by Iveco dealer Northern Commercials in Dunstable, where the side members are cleared and the fuel tank, HI-SCR system and AdBlue tank relocated. Once the initial chassis preparation is complete, the body can be mounted by Johnston Sweepers at its factory in Dorking.
