Dennis Eagle renew MasterMover fleet after years of service

« Return to press section

MasterMover is continuing the next chapter in supporting Dennis Eagle’s production processes with a new fleet of electric tugs, which are enabling single operators to safely and efficiently move loads across the company’s Warwick site.

Dennis Eagle, a world-leader in the design and manufacture of refuse collection vehicles, has taken delivery of 10 new MasterMover electric tugs – including the new PS3000+, which was delivered in December.

This latest addition is being used to move bin lorry trailers, which weigh 8 tonnes with a 2.5 tonne king pin weight.

The PS3000+ is safely and efficiently moving the trailers from one building to another as part of the production process.

This and the other MasterMover electric tugs delivered this year to Dennis Eagle replace the first round of machines, which have each clocked up around 15 years of service on the production lines.

Included in the line-up are eight machines from the MasterTug range – four MT20-800’s, produced to Dennis Eagle’s bespoke requirements, as well two MT400+’s.

With the MasterMover MasterTug range, a single operator can push, pull and steer loads of up to 20,000kg, with the reassurance of safety features including automatic braking and a self-adjusting castor guard to protect against trapped feet.

The other two machines chosen by Dennis Eagle are MasterMover ATP400’s, which enable a single user to push loads on rails up to 80,000kg.

Other features include the addition of coupling devices that link to Dennis Eagle’s trolley systems on the production line.

The end result is a seamless movement of goods across the manufacturing site.

The machines also all underpin Dennis Eagle’s commitment to sustainability, with each featuring an electric recharging system offering emission-free and low noise operation.”
