Dennis launches new skip-loader
Published: 25 March, 2016
A new urban skip-loader vehicle aimed at the construction market has been launched by Dennis Eagle.
The vehicle is part of an initiative to improve safety for vulnerable road users and will be trialled by operators this spring as part of Transport for London's (TfL) Construction Logistics and Cycle Safety (CLOCS) project.
It features a low-entry Elite 6 4x2 chassis fitted with skip-loading equipment and a range of other body options.
The vehicle is also fitted with other safety features, including Dawes Highway Safety's Dawesguard and a four-way camera CCTV safety system with Cyclear warning display system from Innovative Safety Systems (ISS).
Lee Rowland, Sales and Marketing Manager for Dennis Eagle, said: ‘Considerable steps have been taken to improve the safety of large vehicles operating in urban areas over recent years; and rightly so. Our Elite 6 cab sets the industry standard for visibility, making the skip-loader the perfect choice for construction companies looking to improve the safety of their operations in urban environments.'
The skip-loader demonstration vehicle will be showcased by Powerday at the fifth annual CLOCS exhibition (23 March 2016, ExCeL). In addition, it will also be displayed on the Totalkare stand at the forthcoming CV Show (26 – 28 April 2016, NEC, Birmingham).
