Winter has very much arrived, with its long nights, cold days and icy roads coming with it. If you’re considering how the season will impact the public sector and how can you prepare your municipal winter sweeping service, then this is the post for you.
Road sweeping is essential year-round, but winter brings a unique set of challenges with its extreme and unpredictable weather conditions. The recent storms are a clear indicator of that. Winter storms can cause extensive damage to properties, especially when broken branches and leaves block up pipes and drains, resulting in flooding. Additionally, the wetter weather makes sweeping operations harder and riskier for the drivers. Also, sweeping hours are restricted by the shorter days and unfavourable weather; resulting in mounting pressure on employees and a greater risk of debris build up on the roads.
To help you avoid being overwhelmed by winter sweeping challenges, Dawsongroup emc is here with top-of-the-range municipal sweeping equipment and top tips for handling the winter pressure.
Choose the Right Equipment for Municipal Winter Sweeping
Weather can be unpredictable, but the right equipment can help you to tackle the whatever winter might throw at us. All winter equipment should be reliable with a high-powered engine and durable sweepers to clear heavy and stubborn debris. Most municipal sweepers are equipped with interchangeable add-on tool options, such as snow ploughs and gritters. These make it easy to remove snow and ice effectively as drivers sweep the roads.
Keep the Equipment Serviced and Maintained
In this season, debris can contain a higher level of salt, which can cause sweepers to corrode over time. It is, therefore, essential to wash and service equipment regularly to ensure that all the salt residue is washed away. At Dawsongroup emc, the team has tailored their service package to make this process as easy as possible, providing real peace of mind for public sector organisations. The nationwide coverage of Field Service Engineers has a fix-rate of 92% for one-hour repairs, minimising your vehicles downtime, no matter what the issue might be. If the team can’t have the vehicle fixed that same day, they will make sure that you have a replacement vehicle, so you’re never left out in the cold.
