Heavy duty is the name of the game for D&G Cars
Adding another flagship model to their impressive fleet of Dyson vehicles D&G Cars have taken delivery of a new 4 axle Scania R Series fitted with an NRC 50/65 sliding rotator.
The Scania chassis has a high-line sleeper cab, a 420bhp engine working through an opti-cruise gearbox with downhill descent and intarder gearbox options giving this heavy duty unit a 150,000kgs gross combination weight. Featuring 9 tonne front axles and a 36 tonne rear axle combination thus ensuring ample capacity for the NRC 50/65 sliding rotator. The NRC unit incorporates a Dyson maxi-reach 4.2 metre underlift, hydraulic front and rear stabilisers, dual 45,000lbs recovery boom winches plus two secondary 20,000lbs winches mounted to the underside of the boom. Bodywork is a highline D style body giving extra top locker storage whilst keeping in style with the Scania R Series cab. The unit operates via digital remote control with manual override, self levelling and anti-twist equipment options included.
Based in Upminster Essex D&G Cars operate a 24hr UK and Continental road and rescue recovery service and will recover any vehicle from a moped to an articulated, fully loaded, lorry. With 25 years of continuous investment in equipment, depots and people D&G Cars has become one of the most capable and professional recovery businesses in the world.
Dennis Harding from D&G Cars in Essex said “Roger Dyson Group have always been at the forefront of the industry with exciting ideas and improved equipment, leading not following. His inspirational and pioneering approach with new equipment makes our lives as operators so much easier and safer and plays a huge role in ensuring more efficient recoveries. The Dyson equipment has never failed our company and we have always had a good return on resale. I once even part exchanged a heavy recovery truck back to Roger for the same price I paid for it six years earlier and not many can say that they have achieved that!
He continued “Sadly, our company cleared the dreadful after math of the London bombings and in particular the casualty bus which had to be totally lifted in a manner that would preserve all evidence and DNA. This feat was achieved using a Low Loader and two Heavy Recovery trucks, all supplied by Roger Dyson. The bus was suspended in the air for twelve scenes of crime officers to sweep the underside for any evidence and at no point did I doubt the ability of the equipment I was using.”
