Aberdeenshire-based scaffolding business Abscaff has taken delivery of four new Isuzu Grafter Green 3.5 tonne dropside rigids.
The trucks, which are replacements for older vehicles, are the first ever Isuzus in the company’s 22-strong commercial vehicle fleet. Garry Butcher, Operations Director at Abscaff said: “When it was time to update our fleet, replacing four incumbent older vehicles, we looked closely at the current commercial vehicle choices that were available to us.
“Without a doubt, the Isuzu Grafter Green stood out for us. The cost of operating an Isuzu definitely appealed to us, as too did the promise of long-term reliability, as a result of the good reputation that the Isuzu brand has here in the north-east of Scotland.
“Isuzu’s three-year warranty gives us the peace of mind especially when moving to a new truck marque but the overall package put forward by Isuzu was excellent for us. So far, we have been particularly impressed by the truck’s payload, which gives us maximum load capability, and this is, of course, essential on this type of intensive scaffolding work.”
Bob Docherty, network business manager, Isuzu Truck UK added: “The Isuzu Grafter Green is developing a strong reputation within Scotland for its rugged performance and reliability and it is particularly pleasing when this reputation attracts the interests of companies that are new to the Isuzu Truck marque. Abscaff can now look forward to many years of successful work with their new Isuzu Grafter Greens.”
