Geraldton Western Australia add another Scarab Mistral to their fleet.
Geraldton is the capital of Western Australia's mid West region located 424kms from Perth, on the coast. Their new Scarab Mistral is fitted to a Hino FG1628 Euro 5 chassis and will maintain their residential areas, alongside enhancing the foreshore area which is prone to sand drifts, especially during the winter months.
The unit was a welcome addition to the existing Scarab Mistral, also on a Hino FG1628 chassis, supplied by Rosmech 12mths earlier.

Fitted with comfortable air suspension seats, alongside a CD player and radio, this unit offers maximum comfort for operators. To comply with local requirements the unit had additional safety signage fitted along with other requested options including overhead boom (electric assist), high pressure water with hand lance, stainless steel front spray bar and fan wash facility. To ensure added safety a colour CCTV system with rear camera was also fitted.

Well done to the Dudley Bikers..
 Scarab Minor driver Dillon James pictured right and his close friend Mark Reeves also from Dudley mbc have recently gone through the pain barrier to raise money for the Midlands Air Ambulance , they cycled 125 miles from Dudley to Barmouth and they have managed to raise over £500.00 so far with Scarab donating £100 , but that was not the only challenge they now have a couple of days rest before donning their walking boots to climb Mount Snowdon!! 
 
Dillon commenting it's only a mere 5 hour walk !!!, All the Scarab staff wish them all the best with their challenge.

A Scarab Magnum Unidrive for Caerphilly.

A Scarab Magnum Unidrive for Caerphilly.
Located at the southern end of the Rhymney Valley in South Wales, bordering the City of Cardiff and County of Monmouthshire, Caerphilly County Borough Council has recently taken delivery of a new Scarab Magnum Unidrive on Daf LF 15 tonne chassis, It directly replaces their previous seven year old Scarab Magnum which provided such sterling service. It's easy to see why the Magnum was chosen again with a superb 7.5 ton payload, 1800litres of water and a 7.2 metre hopper capacity.

The Magnum Unidrive has a power take off system with pumps fitted to the back of the engine providing the necessary hydraulic power needed to drive the sweeper, allowing operator's to start and stop sweeping on the move at the touch of a single button. This, allied to the nine speed gearbox means the Magnum can function at very low speeds without having to use the clutch. Provided by Gulliver's Truck Hire Ltd, it joins a fleet of two Scarab Merlin XP truck mounted sweepers and three Scarab Minor compacts, all tasked with keeping clean the borough's 106 sq miles.
 
Pictured standing by the new sweeper is Caerphilly's main Magnum operator, Neil Smallman. Operator training was undertaken for Neil and several of his colleagues by Scarab's trainer Micky Roots .'
 
Scarab demonstrator retires to Bournemouth.

Scarab demonstrator retires to Bournemouth.
Bournemouth Borough Council have just taken delivery of an ex-demonstration Scarab Merlin XP on a DAF LF45 7.5 ton chassis that has spent most of its life travelling the country showcasing the merits of Scarab single engine technology.

Bournemouth B.C having used sweepers both larger and smaller then the Scarab in the past found they needed a truck-mounted sweeper that could access some of the narrower, tighter streets and avenues the borough is famed for, but still have the cleaning performance of a larger machine;  For this reason the Merlin XP was chosen as it was able to tick all of those boxes. Being an ex-demonstration model the XP is fitted with many optional features including dual sweep, sweep and wash, high pressure full width front spray bar, boost spray bars in front of the suction boxes, a triple camera system with spilt screen and many other extras too; in fact just about everything.

Key to the continued success of the single engine hydrostatic Merlin XP is its ability to maximise payload by utilising the powerful chassis engine to supply all the sweeper functions instead of using an auxiliary engine, giving the benefits of increased performance, better fuel consumption, less pollution and lower noise, all to the advantage of the operators, residents' and numerous visitors to Bournemouth alike.'
