RCV suited to distance driving with fewer stops

Driver appeal, coupled with the promise of reliability and competitive whole-life costs, prompted family-owned waste management firm Cawleys to invest in its first Mercedes-Benz Antos. The Luton-based company’s new 26-tonner arrived via dealer Intercounty Truck & Van.

Cawleys specialises in collecting and recycling commercial waste, including food, hazardous and sensitive materials.

The Antos 2632 has a Classic Space M-Cab with extra storage space behind the seats. Its 7.7-litre, straight-six engine generates 235kW (320hp), which is transmitted to both rear axles via a smooth and efficient eight-speed PowerShift automated gearbox.

The Antos is fitted with a Heil Powerlink compactor body.

Head of waste collection Phil Gudgeon said: “The Antos is better suited to this application than the low-entry Mercedes-Benz Econic it has replaced, because it entails covering greater distances and making fewer stops than required for a domestic waste collection round.”
