Evans transport drawbars construction material haulage 8

First new drawbars hit the road

This year will see 10 new Drawbars hit the road for the Evans Transport Group. 7 will be in the Classic colours of Green and Red whilst the other 3 will be in the Livery of Seymour Transport.

Here is 1 of our 2 new Volvo trucks which have recently been put on the road to expand our crane operations in the construction sector.

As you can see from the pictures the main purpose of this group of vehicles is to deliver construction materials to both yards and building sites around the country. This truck supplied by Stuarts Truck and Bus of Exeter and is 1 of 4 to hit the road in 2022. The first 2 have arrived with Atlas 135 remote control cranes complete with Brick grab attachments supplied from Atlas crane and are completed with new drawbar trailers from Truck and trailer conversions and retractable curtains supplied by TWR.  The other 2 will be coming later in 2022. The trucks have the latest Euro VI engines to help reduce CO2 emissions as well as providing a good level of comfort for the drivers.

Company Director Tom Evans says: “It’s great to see the first trucks joining the fleet. It is a difficult time getting new equipment at present with the delays the world is seeing in microchips and other components that are needed to get these vehicles on the road. As part of our ongoing renewal an expansion program we will see more to come this year as well as some more in the traditional artic variant. Running new equipment helps reduce our carbon footprint and helps keep downtime to a minimum. The feedback from the drivers has been very pleasing so it will be good to see how the various components on this model performs.”

Swapping Mirrors For Cameras

morrorless trucks seymour transport R

In the last couple of weeks, two new Mirrorless Trucks have been added to our Seymour fleet which bring a variety of advantages. Mercedes have commented on these Mirrorless trucks saying that they have seen great improvements in aspects such as efficiency and safety. The conventional main mirrors have been replaced with digital cameras which provide a much better all-round view. These cameras are calibrated with the trailer length to provide better visibility at all times. As well as improved safety, the digital cameras bring aerodynamic advantages such as a reduction in fuel consumption. This truck goes over and above as it brings more advantages than just the MirrorCam , including the Active Drive Assist and the Active Brake Assist. Fantastic additions to the Seymour Transport fleet.
