Shelvoke & Drewry Refuse Collection Vehicle types.
THE NEW OR ‘E’ TYPE 1937 - 1939.
It was not until 1937 that it was deemed necessary to introduce a new
design to be manufactured alongside the SD Freighter. 1937 The New or ‘E’ type.
the New type or E type appeared. I have photos of only one of these
vehicles which is shown above and equipped with a moving floor body.
The engine was now placed in front of the driver. A conventional
steering wheel was provided on later versions, but a tiller still
controlled the gear changing. Electric starting was now standard. I don’t believe many New Types were
manufactured and no more were produced after World War II. [Kaleidoscope captions 73.74& 75.]
