The Scania L Series was only launched in 2017. This means that right hand drive versions of this low-entry cab truck only hit the UK’s roads in January 2019. In this competitive market that is dominated by refuse trucks bought under tender, it will be difficult for a new player to make significant inroads early on. For these reasons – and the fact that low entry cab operators tend to keep their trucks for many years – you will only see very few of these trucks on Truckpages. If you are looking for one and you see it – then snap it up as it won’t hang around for long!
The truck has a five star rating for direct vision standards (DVS rating) from TfL.
Most skips are used in urban environments and the truck used to deliver and collect them can travel further than most dustcarts – with drivers in an out of the cab nearly as frequently. This means that ease of cab access combined with excellent pedestrian visibility should be a must. It was these qualities and more that pointed london-based O'Donovan Waste Disposal Limited to become the UK's first waste management and recycling specialist to introduce a skiploader based on a Scania L-series chassis into service.

Scania has embarked on its electric journey with the trucks most used for local distribution and municipal roles – the P – Series and low entry cabbed L-Series. The company says that it will roll out new models every year from now on until the range is complete – including long distance haulage. For the operators that are keen to go green, but not yet ready financially or operationally to take the fully electric plunge, Scania are also offering a plug-in hybrid version.

In order to appeal to a broader range of customers, Scania has added their 7-litre D07 engine to their urban, low entry L Series truck that they launched as recently as 2017. Originally available only with the 5-cylinder, 9-litre Scania unit, the L Series was carrying quite a bit of weight for refuse truck operation, for example. The introduction of the smaller engine means that an overall weight saving of some 360kg can be achieved – and that’s money in the bank for a truck operator. The D07 is available in three different power outputs: 220, 250 and 280 hp.…>
