Bradshaw’s Goupil G4 electric vehicle has proven such a hit among local authority customers of Trafalgar Cleaning Equipment that the number of orders in the past couple of years has grown four-fold.

Arguably one of Bradshaw’s most popular and versatile electric vehicles, the G4 lends itself to one of any number of conversions for a range of uses in different environments.

With Trafalgar’s expertise to create general street cleaning machines the number of G4s helping to clean up the streets of the Capital is increasing, benefiting areas such as South Bank and Elephant and Castle.

Smaller, lighter and much more cost-effective than an electric van, the G4 is used by local authorities to remove graffiti and chewing gum from streets and pavements.

Councils that have switched from vans to the G4 are saving themselves thousands of pounds per vehicle.

Versatile by its very design, the G4 is a small, light and fully electric, with zero emissions. It is operable by lead-acid or lithium batteries.

Ideal for city centre locations, it has a range of 50 to 101 miles (depending on battery size) and is available in left or right-hand drive. Its robust ladder frame construction can be adapted to suit individual needs and is particularly popular among customers adapting the unit for use as a cherry picker, gritter, tail-lift, crane, bike rack and fire-fighting vehicle.

Over the past two years Bradshaw has worked with Horsham-based Trafalgar Cleaning Equipment which has converted the versatile G4 vehicles for local authority customers in the Greater London area.

Named Trafalgar City Washer, the vehicles are adapted to clean areas without power or water supply and are particularly suited for harder-to-access places such as narrower streets and pedestrianised areas.

Trafalgar fits the vehicles with Karcher HDS 1000 DE washers which are mounted in a sound-proofed, galvanised trailer with the front and rear of the unit hinged to allow easy access for daily use, maintenance and storage.

With water tanks that hold up to 720 litres, the hot water high-pressure units can operate for 2.5 hours of continual use and are fitted with hoses extending up to 30 metres. As well as graffiti and chewing gum, councils use the units to give an all-round industrial clean to remove everyday dirt and grime from the streets and pavements.

The cleaning units also come with an exhaust extraction and cooling vent or fan system to keep the vehicle free from fumes from the pressure washer unit.

Miles Rowlands of Trafalgar said the vehicles are particularly popular among local authorities.

He said: “We have a good relationship with Bradshaw; their Goupil G4 equipped with our systems provides a practical and environmental combination to a problem that plagues local councils.”

“The authorities are under constant pressure to keep their streets tidy, and chewing gum and graffiti in particular, remain two of their biggest problems, not least in city and town centres.”

“Thanks to its compact size, the Goupil G4 is the perfect vehicle for manoeuvring through pedestrianised areas, narrow streets, and tight spots. It effortlessly navigates pavements and provides easy access to hard-to-reach areas.”
