Nottinghamshire-based A&V Squires Plant Co has switched to the Isuzu marque for the first time, purchasing two 3.5 tonne Grafter N35.125 tippers.
The vehicles, from local Isuzu Truck dealer t.i.m Commercials in Ilkeston and with three-year warranties, are now carrying building materials such as tarmac and gravel. They are expected to cover about 20,000 miles per annum over a five-year period for A&V Squires, up to a maximum of 100,000 miles.
George Healey, civils project manager at A&V Squires Plant Co said: “For us, actual payload is critical these days for our civils gangs as they need to operate as efficiently as possible. We were aware of the Isuzu reputation for class leading carrying capacity so we took the decision to order our first two Isuzu Grafters.
“Needless to say, we were also impressed by the fact they were supplied with a full three year warranty for peace of mind. The performance of the Grafters so far has been absolutely excellent. We are extremely happy with these two new additions to our fleet and they carry the raw material weight really easily.”
Tony Long, network business manager at Isuzu Truck UK added: “It’s a great pleasure to be able to introduce the Isuzu Grafters into such a well-established company as A&V Squires, and once again their proven reputation for industry leading payload and reliability has been an integral factor behind the Southwell company switching to Isuzu for the very first time.”
