West Dorset Council purchase a 3rd Azura Road Sweeper

West Dorset has recently taken delivery of their third new Azura compact road sweeper; following two similar units purchased in October last year. The newest machine will be working in Bridport a pretty market town on the Jurassic coast or Dorset, and is a busy and highly popular tourist area.

Trevor Holt is the main operator for the new Azura, and is extremely happy with the new machine saying “it performs much better than my previous road sweeper from another manufacturer in both suction and manoeuvrability”. 

As well as having the optional high pressure power wash used to clean around street furniture and along promenades, Trevor’s Azura road sweeper is also fully prepared for the mounting of winter maintenance equipment should it be required.

West Dorset Council has been very pleased with both the performance and reliability of the Azura’s over the past 12 months along with the parts support offered by Scarab Sweepers and this was a key factor in their decision to take an additional third unit. All the machines are serviced and maintained by West Dorset from their main workshop facility in Dorchester.

12 new Scarab M6 Road Sweepers for Santiago, Chile
 The City of Santiago, Chile has benefitted from steady economic growth and through successive development campaigns has become a very modern metropolis in South America. The Government Authorities fight a constant battle to improve air quality in a location that suffers from Atmospheric thermal inversion caused by its geography and climate. This meteorological phenomenon means dust and pollutants produced by road traffic and industry are held in the lower atmosphere, near ground level, leading to respiratory issues for the public.


The Government of Santiago have taken an important decision to increase the quality and frequency of street sweeping across their capital. As a result there will be 12 new Scarab M6 machines put into operation across the various districts by Demarco, a key contractor in the Santiago area.


The Scarab M6 was chosen because of its simplicity of maintenance and low cost of operation whilst still providing the very highest level of PM10 dust control needed to fight this difficult problem. The machines are fitted with high pressure water pumps, front spray bars and additional water tanks to assist in dust suppression, whilst tracking systems connected to the Scarab CANbus3 system, provide a wealth of operational data to the end-user for performance monitoring.


The machines were sold by the Scarab distributor, General Trade S.A, who will be maintaining the machines on a service contract to ensure they provide the highest level service and utilization.

General Trade have been working with Scarab since 2010 and this recent success will add to the array of Scarab machines already operating in the Chilean capital.
