Client introduction:

Whiteman Park is in the northern area of Perth, Western Australia. It covers nearly 4,000 hectares of natural bushland and leisure facilities. Originally owned by Mr Lew Whiteman who grazed life stock from 1903 and in the 1960’s set up a picnic spot at Mussel Pool. The WA state government started to purchase land in this area to conserve the local wildlife and fauna, as well as the Gnangara Water Mound, a source of Perth’s drinking water.

The Challenge:

Whiteman Park had until recently been using a street suction sweeper.

It was not suitable for their purpose due to twigs & sticks blocking the suction nozzle. Their machine had many breakdowns and running costs were extremely high with constant breakdowns.

Sue (Manager) and her team are responsible for the tidiness of the main pathways and public areas along the train line.

Their main debris are gum leaves and Honky nuts.

They needed a solution that was reliable, had a low cost of running and actually performed its started task- pick up the debris.

The challenge placed on ASC was to supply a machine mix that would reliably collect as much of this vegetation prior to the public entering the park.

The Solution:

WA Area Manager Ross Sheehan was contacted by Sue to demonstrate a few machines to see what was going to achieve the desired result.

Ross arrived at the site in the ASC Demonstration van with a ASC Eureka M3 rider sweeper, a Heavy Duty, Elgee Littervac as well as a footpath sweeper.

Whilst the three machines performed well on the day, Sue and her team needed time to consider which machines were going to do the best job for years to come.

The result:

A month later Sue contacted Ross Sheehan to complete an Supplier form. They had decided to move forward with the ASC M3 battery ride-on sweeper and a Elgee LitterVac.

Ross had these machines in stock in the ASC WA warehouse and was able to pre deliver the two machines and deliver once the Purchase Orders where received.
