Islawrffordd Caravan Park, the family run luxury caravan
park situated on the coast of North Wales between Barmouth
and Harlech, has recently purchased a bespoke electric powered
vehicle for general duties around the park.
The new vehicle - a Cushman Diabline, manufactured and supplied
by Suffolk-based Ransomes Jacobsen - is being used primarily
for early morning refuse collection around the complex.
Traditionally, refuse was collected using a van or
tractor with a trailer attached and this obviously created
a noise issue as collections begin at 7.30am.
The new vehicle is ultra-quiet and highly efficient
as well as being environmentally friendly at the point

Commenting recently, when Nigel Mansell officially opened
the complex following a £500,000 refurbishment, Dylan Evans,
a director of Islawrffordd Caravan Park said - "The park has
been in the family for the past 52 years and we have always
been aware of the special environment in the Snowdonia National
Park in which we are situated. Our policy is to protect this
environment at all times - wherever practicable - and some
years ago, we purchased a small electric utility vehicle for
general duties around the site. This demonstrated that we
could use battery powered vehicles efficiently - but we realised
we needed something bigger.
"Last year, while visiting the Saltex Show at Windsor, I
came across the Diabline on the Ransomes Jacobsen stand and
made an enquiry. This was promptly followed up with a demonstration
and it proved to meet our requirements exactly. We've had
it painted in our corporate livery and it is doing an excellent
job for us.
"For years our regular customers have been aware of our early
morning collections, but now most of them, apart from the
early risers, are totally unaware that the collections have

Islawrffordd Caravan Park is one of the few parks in
the area that adjoins, and has private access to, the
miles of safe and spectacular beaches that stretch along
the North Wales coastline.
The park itself consists of 216 holiday caravans set
within 12 acres of level ground.
There is a swimming pool on-site and it also has a slipway
for small boats and other watercraft, which is available to
caravan owners. For those with an interest in fishing, this
can be done directly from the beach or on daily fishing trips
