New Scania XT 6x2 skiploader for JG Pears
Animal by-product and food waste specialist JG Pears has procured a Scania XT 6x2 fitted with a Harsh skiploader.
Based at the company’s Bradford depot, the truck can operate either as a 26-tonne solo unit or as a 44-tonne drawbar with a custom-built tri-axle trailer.
It is the first unit to feature Harsh’s locking system built into the skiploader’s floor. The truck is expected to cover more than 200,000km a year during its first five or six years, followed by five more years of lower mileage local journeys, totalling at least 1.5 million km during its total time on the fleet.
“Performance, productivity and safety are the key yardsticks for every vehicle in our 60-plus fleet,” said JG Pears’ group logistics director Andrew Bostock.
“We chose this skiploader unit – our first from Harsh – not just for its practical design and robust construction but also for its fully integrated skip locking system that offers a significant bonus in operating safety. So too the unit’s rechargeable remote control that allows easy viewing of the complete loading/unloading cycle from anywhere around the vehicle.”
He added: “Principally because of their specialist bodywork, we expect to keep our skips, hooks and bin wagons at least 10 years, so getting the spec right at the outset is of fundamental importance – particularly as we will be looking after these trucks ourselves throughout their lifetime.”
