New Sweeper

Sweeper in use in gas stationA brand new sweeper has just joined our line-up – the R850. A mid-sized rider this machine replaces the R703 – a faithful servant but now showing its age a little. Major advantages of the new model are its larger size and therefore sweeping performance, strong, unitary construction which means less maintenance and its great price.

Tough Workhorse

The R850 is a tough no nonsense sweeper. This makes it resistant to operator error and easy to maintain. Its simple construction makes it very reliable in even the most arduous applications.

Technological Improvements

1The R850’s direct drive fans are a great example of technology reducing the number of parts and thereby increasing reliability. Add a larger filtering surface and this machine will perform much better than its predecessor in dusty environments. Other improvements include direct drive side-brush motors and a larger diameter main brush. For more details see this page on our website.

Cleaning Capacity

The R850 has a class leading 120 litre capacity hopper which means more sweeping between empties. Cleaning performance is enhanced by the machine’s litter gate and electric filter shakers. Available with either an electric or petrol motor this machine will provide many years of reliable sweeping.

Heritage

Euromec van C1965As a break from the modern, hi-tech machines that we are always talking about thought we could look at some of the more established machinery we have! As a company we have an unusually large proportion of petrol heads with some splendid cars, bikes and toys. This post will give you a taster.

Morris Minor Van

This immaculate “Moggy” van is one example. Lovingly restored by us in our workshops this van has been re-built from the ground-up. Sign written with the legend “Euromec – Mechanical Sweeping Machines!” it was originally registered in 1967. Over 50 years old it starts on the button, if not there is the cranking handle option, see the hole in the front bumper!

Paris Dakar Anyone?

Paris Dakar rally

Few years back we got involved with Patsy Quick a very brave lady that competed in the Paris Dakar on a KTM motorcycle. Part of the KTM works team from memory, she was at that time the only British woman taking part. No surprise there as it was the toughest off-road event by a long way. Her bike featured the most remarkable suspension travel you have ever seen! Side effect of this was that she couldn’t reach the floor when sitting on the bike – amazing. The memory of her blasting it around the roads of our industrial estate still bring a smile to the face.

And There’s More!

More to follow on this topic. We still have E-Type Jaguars, Bentleys and various motorcycles to wax lyrically about! Send us a comment if this interests you.

The Big Clean-up

road sweepers The floods in the Wales and the South of England are appalling. Our thoughts are with the individuals and businesses that are suffering at the hands of this exceptional weather. While the rain continues to fall and the water levels continue to rise, flood defence is the focus.

Once the waters have subsided the big clear-up will start. People will want to get back to some form of normality as quickly as possible. We hope that’s where we will be able to help. In our range of machines there are a number that are ideally suited to clearing roads and cleaning floors.

Floor Scrubbers

Floor scrubbers are fantastic at clearing liquid spills and leave the floor spotlessly clean, having collected the waste water. Their road going counterparts are equally effective. If you have a factory that has had its floor flooded a scrubber drier will collect water from all the low spots in the floor and remove the detritus left by the flood water. Not a pleasant thought but an effective solution to the problem.

Good luck to all those affected. Let us know if we can help.

A Welcome Cut!

kubota cashback offerDue to the ongoing success of the Spring Cash Back campaign, we are delighted to announce that we will be running this successful campaign again in 2014. And like 2013, we will be running it from Feb 1st to June 30th.

Applying to the full line-up of Kubota model T and GR ride-on mowers this scheme will help those wishing to renew or upgrade their lawn tractor at the start of spring. Short of offering a free rowing boat with outboard motor this must be one of the best offers gardeners will get this spring!

Enhanced Trade-Ins

To further encourage existing Kubota users wishing to upgrade we are offering extremely good trade-in offers for used Kubota products: Whether they are lawn mowers or indeed tractors, we are very keen to obtain good used Kubota machines.
