One of the UKs largest spot hire and contract hire firms for municipal vehicles has bought 15 refuse collection vehicles from HN Logistic Systems.
Skelmersdale-based Woodend Municipal Services Ltd hires out vehicles to local authorities and other organisations, which it backs up with an extensive maintenance and recovery service.
The HN Logistic Systems' Cityloader has a rear loading mechanism and is available in a range of sizes, from volumes of 16 to 26 m3.
Combining low maintenance costs with high efficiency, it also has a compact body which results in great manoeuvrability and a high payload.
Woodend Municipal Services' Managing director Ian Ellison commented: “We chose HN Logistic Systems' Cityloader because we knew we would be well looked after, both in terms of the product and the after-sales service.
“The company has an excellent reputation, prices are extremely competitive and the after-sales service is second to none – we have all been briefed and received full training on how the vehicle operates and general maintenance procedures.”
Steve Price, HN Logistic Systems commercial director, said: “The vehicles will have high usage throughout the country, by many different local authorities and contractors they are well suited to the job – the Cityloader is just as at home on all types of collection routes and waste.
Features of the Cityloader include a collection compartment with flat side walls, made of integrated welded frame construction with an under-structure impermeable to liquids; 700 mm upswept sheet metal at the front end with a perforated sheet metal at the front end up to the roof; a body side access door to nearside, as standard; and a compaction mechanism (loading mechanism) with a carrier plate and a compaction plate. The carrier plate is of sectional construction, mounted on four highly wear-resistant rollers in two guide rails welded into the rear section.
The Cityloader is compatible with all of HN Logistic Systems' bin lifters and the bins made by its sister company, Otto UK.
