Boels Rental has taken delivery of five Isuzu N75.190 (E) 7.5 tonners, with Beavertail bodies and supported by five-year R&M agreements.
The purchase comes after the company put six N75.190 (E) trucks with the same specifications into service at the end of last year. Isuzu Truck dealer Warrington Vehicle Centre supplied all the trucks which are expected to have a seven-year working life, and cover about 35,000 miles a year.
The firm’s Isuzus tend to be based at its larger sites generally with a higher concentration of heavy mobile equipment. Also, the company has placed another order for an extra two Isuzu 7.5 tonners for delivery later in the year.
Jim Field, commercial director at Boels Rental said: “Changing our product portfolio meant that we needed larger GVW trucks for the heavier equipment. After conducting an extensive review of the market, we felt that the Isuzu 7.5 tonne rigid had the best reputation for payload and reliability.
“The first six Isuzus went into service and we have been rewarded with excellent reliability, superb payload capacity and, as a bonus, we have found that the fuel efficiency has been significantly better than expected.”
