Quality of new Volvo FE sweeps Aebi Schmidt UK off its feet

“The quality of the product is superb, the demonstration team are delighted with it,” says Harvey. “We relied heavily on Alan, and his experience really helped us. We asked for a very low approach angle for loading, in the region of 12 degrees, as our sweepers all have brushes and are very low to the ground. Together with Sterling, he took all our requirements on board and delivered exactly what we needed.”

The new FE will be working five days a week and features a sleeper cab, with air conditioning and Bluetooth communication, giving comfortable accommodation for Aebi Schmidt UK’s drivers. Safety and visibility has also been improved with Volvo’s factory-fitted, additional lower glazing panel on the passenger door. The truck – supplied through Volvo Financial Services – is covered by a five-year Volvo Gold Contract, with all servicing and maintenance to be carried out at Volvo Truck and Bus Centre East Anglia’s Peterborough depot.

“We have a long relationship with Volvo,” says Harvey. “They deliver a premium product, but we also receive an exceptionally high level of service from our local dealer. The team are really on the ball, always proactive. That was an important factor for sticking with Volvo for this latest order.

As a business, we need partners we can rely on.”

Part of the Aebi Schmidt global group, Aebi Schmidt UK supplies, maintains and provides training on equipment dedicated to all-year-round surface clearing, including winter snow and ice clearance, sweeping and vegetation control.

The business provides effective solutions to keep roads, airports and motorways clear of waste, obstructions, snow and ice.
