Street Sweeper Diesel Donation
Cumberland Perry AVTS received a generous donation of a 2005 Freightliner Street Sweeper for the Diesel program from A&H Equipment of Harrisburg. FleetPride of Harrisburg also donated the delivery of the vehicle to the Cumberland Perry AVTS.
The street sweeper is equipped with various mechanical and electrical devices that students would not usually have access to disassemble and reconstruct. This vehicle, is equipped with a 115 horse power John Deere auxiliary engine that powers the sweeper motor. It is also has dual operator controls for the throttle, brakes, and steering wheels. It is also furnished with an automatic transmission, air brakes, and a hydraulic dump bed which is new territory for diesel students. Students will diagnose the engine issues with the auxiliary motor and familiarize themselves with unique electronic technology.
Cumberland Perry AVTS is grateful for all the generous community support received to educate the future workforce!
