London borough sweeps in with mini-compacts
The Park Services Division of the London Borough of Brent has taken delivery of two Ransomes Pathfinder mini-compact, ride-on sweepers for litter collection duties within the parks and open spaces of the borough. Brent Park Services ordered the direct vacuum version of the Pathfinder, which is powered by a 14.7kW water-cooled, Kubota diesel engine. The Textron Specialty Products machine features a raise and lower system on the floating vacuum head, designed to cope with varying sizes of litter.
Included in the purchase agreement is a package of operational and technical training, together with technical support from Textron's dealer, Ernest Doe and Sons Ltd.
