In the field of motor transport collection and delivery two special Scammell vehicles are pre-eminent. For short distances the remarkable Scammell Mechanical Horse is the most economical and efficient operative unit ever evolved. Operating with avariety of different trailers (all covered by the tax on the single motive unit) its ability to turn in less than its own length and its agility in negotiating crowded city streets is almost uncanny. Running expenses are low and, especially when used in conjunction with three or four trailers on what is known as the Scammell Shuttle System, it can effect large savings in time and money all round. Over longer distances, on the other hand, the Scammell eight-wheeler provides a means of transporting heavy loads on the most economical basis. With a phenomenal effective loading space the registration weight is well under 7 tons, and a full pay-load of 15 tons can be carried at a speed of 20 m.p.h. and a fuel consumption of about '11 m.p.g. Write now for particulars and demonstrations of these Scammell vehicles.
