Doncaster Council builds fleet versatility with Elite 630 January 2019

Doncaster Borough Council has taken delivery of a Dennis Eagle Elite 6, specially designed for use as a construction vehicle by day and a gritter by night.

The vehicle is equipped with a demountable tipper body and a crane, while an Econ QCB system enables a range of attachments to be fitted, including a 6cm2 gritter unit and a snow plough.

The vehicle is powered by a Volvo 276bhp engine and its 4x2 configuration features full air suspension on both the front and drive axles. The ride height can also be raised at speeds of up to 15kph for easy approach to off-road sites.

The Elite 6’s low-entry cab boosts visibility with its low driver seat and panoramic windows.

“It was an exciting new project for Dennis Eagle – it’s the first time we’ve fitted a gritter, snow plough or demountable body to an Elite 6 chassis,” says Charlie Everitt, sales support engineer at Dennis Eagle.

Doncaster Council’s highways operations manager Gary Willmot adds: “We have been proud to be able to work together and create this vehicle, and hope it will benefit other service providers in the future.”

The Elite 6, like all Dennis Eagle vehicles, complies with FORS Silver standards.
