Magnetic Island Takes Delivery Of An EX-Fleet ASC M6 Diesel Sweeper
Townsville Council had recently made inquiries to invest in a highly maneuverable sweeper that could be used on Magnetics Island.
Magnetic Island is an island 8 kilometers offshore from the city of Townsville, Queensland, Australia. This 52 km² mountainous island in Cleveland Bay has effectively become a suburb of Townsville.
Their challenge was that they had a tight budget and they needed a machine that was compact, easy to use, service and swept well without creating dust.
Townsville Council elected to invest in a Ex Fleet ASC M6 Diesel sweeper.
The machine proved more than capable of doing the task. Running a proven Kubota / Easton drive train really made things easier as parts required to maintain the machine were available locally from local suppliers.
The 2100 local residents can now reap the benefits of a daily swept roads and mall areas.
ASC’s Rafael Rodrigues recently went to the Townsville Council depot to induct the Councils operators on how to use & maintain the ASC M6 sweeper.
Townsville Council reaped significant financial benefits by investing in a ex fleet ASC approved sweeper to the delight of the operators.
