Bespoke Spreader Joins Middlesbrough Fleet

Econ’s workshop has been working some magic for Middlesbrough Borough Council. The local authority used two of its ageing gritters in exchange for a new spreader on a Daf chassis, custom designed and painted up in Middlesbrough’s white corporate livery.
Midd-1The brand new vehicle was supplied to Middlesbrough from Econ’s hire fleet, where it had not been used, and was kitted out to the local authority’s precise requirement.

Middlesbrough’s spec included a power angled plough that can be steered both left and right, as well as the IS intelligent spreading system that uses satellites to automatically control the rate of salt released for any given route, enabling the gritter operator to concentrate on driving.
