Countrystyle cleans up with 32-tonne Mercedes Arocs10 February 2016

Recyling and waste management operator Countrystyle has added seven 32-tonne Mercedes-Benz Arocs trucks its fleet, which has almost tripled in size in three years to 150 vehicles.

Supplied by dealer Sparshatts of Kent, six of the eight-wheelers are Arocs 3242K trucks with compactor bodies by Inco-Mol, of Chesterfield, while the seventh vehicle is a 3243K mounted with Hyva hook loading equipment.

The latest additions join a fleet of 8x4 Arocs refuse vehicles and hook-loaders, as well as tractor units that work with walking floor trailers.

Most of the tractor units are 6x2 Actros vehicles, with a couple of double-drive Arocs versions.

“Continued business growth means we needed more dustcarts for our trade waste rounds, and another hook-loader able to handle Ro-Ro bins with capacities of up to 40 cubic yards,” states Countrystyle’s commercial director Jamie Houston.

“Mercedes-Benz has accounted for approximately 90% of our fleet purchases over the last 18 months, as we’ve sought not only to extend the fleet but also to reduce our carbon footprint by replacing older vehicles,” he continues.

“The Arocs and Actros are both high-quality, fit-for-purpose trucks that have proved exceptionally reliable and represent excellent value for money. Our drivers speak very highly of them, too, while we receive a first-class service from Sparshatts.”

The new trucks are being inspected and serviced by Sparshatts under CharterWay contract hire agreements from Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.
