Dennis the name in waste

Dennis Eagle’s strong relationship with leading Australian truck supplier Transpacific Commercial Vehicles continues to flourish. Since 2010, the Warwick based refuse vehicle manufacturer has shipped out more than 250 chassis, which are now serving the various communities throughout the country. The company’s low entry cab design was first introduced to the Australian marketplace by Transpacific in 2011 and is fast becoming a design of choice for councils, due to its added safety features such as better vision, reduced engine noise and improved ride quality. Feedback from the drivers has also been incredibly positive with many of them commenting on how much easier the vehicles are to operate. One area to benefit from a Dennis Eagle fleet is the Moreton Bay region of Queensland, one of Australia’s fastest growing communities. The region stretches a large geographical area in comparison to the UK, so it is important that refuse collection vehicles operating in this region deliver good fuel efficiency. Dennis Eagle recently supplied over 30 purpose built vehicles to serve Moreton Bay Regional Council. Operated by contract hire business Cleanaway, the vehicles are carrying out weekly waste and recycling collections from over 150,000 homes across three districts as part of a seven year contract.

To help ensure a smooth transition to the new service Dennis Eagle supplied Cleanaway with a fleet of 6x4 dual steer low entry cabs fitted with Superior Pak Side-loader compactors. Mark Gobessi, general manager for Transpacific Commercial vehicles, comments: “Dennis Eagle’s flexibility to meet our needs has meant we have been able to provide the Australian marketplace with an efficient, high performing vehicle which is becoming increasingly popular amongst local authorities and contract hire companies.”
