Dalrod chooses Mercedes-Benz Arocs with manual gearbox

  • 01 July 2014
  • By Roger Brown

Peterborough-based drainage and sewer specialist Dalrod has acquired an 8×4 Mercedes-Benz Arocs with StreamSpace cab.

The vehicle, supplied by city Dealer Intercounty Truck Van has a 10.7-litre Euro-6 engine generating 360hp.

There is a 16-speed manual gearbox – specified in place of the standard-fit Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated transmission – to meet the requirements of the “split prop” power take off (PTO) arrangement that drives the sucking and jetting system.

Whale Tankers manufactured and fitted the vehicle’s vacuum system and tank capable of carrying up to 18,000 litres of waste.

The 32-tonner has colour-coded bumpers, a roof-mounted Kelsa light bar, air horns and protective headlight grilles. 

Derek Bullivant, operations manager at Dalrod, said: “At over £200,000 this vehicle represents a very significant investment for our business.”
