Cambridgeshire based drainage specialists ADC Drainage Limited have invested in the Scania P Series. With a stainless steel Cappellotto tank mounted to the chassis this 26 tonner is one of the first of its type in the UK.
Supplied by local Scania Dealer TruckEast Limited, the latest purchase was a P410 LB 6×2*4 MNA Day Cab. Powered by a 6-cylinder, 13 litre engine delivering 306 kW (410 hp), its output is transmitted smoothly via its 12 speed opticruise gearbox. The P Series is complete with a rear steer axle which means it’s highly manoeuvrable; a crucial aspect when inner city contracts demand tight turning circles.
Steve Paige, Director at ADC Drainage Limited, explains: “Not only did the vehicle need to match our operational needs but with an investment such as this, lifespan and longevity come into play, so we needed an asset that would stand the test of time.”
Supported with a 5 year Repair and Maintenance Agreement, the latest 26 tonner will undertake all inspections and servicing at TruckEast’s Kings Lynn branch. “Since we began dealing with TruckEast, the team at Kings Lynn have delivered a great service and are always happy to help,” states Mr Paige. “The back-up along with attention of the sales team to ensure our truck was exactly how we wanted it really makes a difference.”
