RVS goes retro at RWM

Published:  26 July, 2016

Visitors to this year’s RWM show can take a journey back in time on the Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS) stand which features an original 1978 Smith Cabac ‘75 electric street cleansing vehicle.

The vehicle has been restored to its former glory in true RVS style and will be filled with sweets from the same era to complete the trip down memory lane.

RVS will be showing off three refuse trucks at the show. The entrance doors will be flanked by an RVS RediTruck on one side – a new Dennis Elite 6 fitted with Dennis Olympus body and Beta Trade Lift – and a vehicle from its Hire Fleet on the other side.

There will be a new Mercedes Econic with Dennis Olympus and Terberg OmniDEL lift. And the fourth vehicle, a new Scania chassis fitted with a remanufactured Heil Front End Loader, will be parked on the roundabout at the entrance to the NEC.

Spencer Law, managing director said: ‘We now supply new vehicles as well as Quality Used, and in addition to our remanufacturing capabilities, we offer preventative maintenance and repair services, parts, finance and vehicle transportation. Moving into hire vehicles is a natural progression and helps our customers keep their operations running smoothly while we replace or repair their vehicles.’

You can meet RVS at RWM in Hall 5, Stand W120-X121.
