Winter service - vehicles for short-term needs
Municipalities and contractors were long prepared for the first snowfall when they sent their winter service vehicles out on the roads for the first time a few weeks ago. As a rule, the procurement and provision of vehicles is completed long before the onset of winter. Nevertheless, there are municipalities or contractors who need to expand their vehicle fleet at short notice, whether due to an additional order or the need for a replacement vehicle. In this case, CharterWay is the right place to go.
In addition to a large selection of trucks and vans with the star, the fleet of Mercedes-Benz CharterWay also includes complete winter maintenance solutions for hire. These are Mercedes-Benz Atego 1530 AK and Arocs 2036 AK vehicles equipped with snow ploughs and spreaders from Aebi Schmidt. The vehicles are available for rent throughout Germany from 24 hours up to several months or years. Municipalities can thus hire performance-oriented winter service vehicles for a limited period of time without tying up capital in the budget for the rest of the year.
Mercedes-Benz Atego Euro VI particularly suitable for clearing municipal and interurban roads
The Atego is equipped with the 7.7-litre OM936 six-cylinder engine with an output of 220 kW (299 hp) and a maximum torque of 1200 Nm. The fully automated Mercedes PowerShift3 transmission ensures optimally selected gear changes with a consistently high shift quality, thus relieving the driver in stressful situations. The 2.3 m wide ClassicSpace cab offers a comfortable workplace and, above all, a good view of the snow plough. The permanent all-wheel drive is a must when operating in winter service and ensures constant traction and steady progress even on slippery roads.
The Cirron SL 32 multi-blade snow plough from Aebi Schmidt with a snow plough height of 930 mm and a 3200 mm long scraper bar is equipped with a patented drive-over system. The robust plough is particularly suitable for clearing municipal and interurban roads and has been specially designed for the demanding clearing of even larger quantities of snow at medium altitudes. The Stratos S30 de-mountable spreader with a hopper size of 3.0 m3 is designed for spreading thawing and gritting agents. The driver can react to changing road conditions at any time by controlling all functions directly from the cab, such as spreading density, spreading pattern and lateral distribution.
Mercedes-Benz Arocs Euro VI for use in alpine regions
The Mercedes-Benz Arocs 2036 AK are equipped with the 10.7-litre OM470 six-cylinder engine with an output of 265 kW (360 hp) and a maximum torque of 1800 Nm. Here, too, the fully automated Mercedes PowerShift 3 transmission with 16 gears takes the strain off the driver in winter service operations. The 2.3 m wide ClassicSpace cab offers - like the Atego - a high level of visibility in road traffic and onto the snow plough, but also a comfortable workplace. The permanent all-wheel drive of the Arocs enables it to be used in difficult terrain with high demands, such as when starting on slippery gradients.
The multi-blade Tarron MS 34 snow plough, with a central snow plough height of 1060 mm and a 3400 mm long scraper blade, is designed for use in alpine regions with large amounts of snow. The Stratos S50 de-mountable spreader with a hopper size of 5.0 m3 offers sufficient space for spreading material, even for longer operations.
