National piling equipment supplier Piletec has deployed five replacement Isuzu 7.5-tonne rigids four years based on the performance and reliability of the original models.
The inaugural five 7.5-tonne rigids were run a four-year contract hire agreement through Isuzu Truck dealer Warrington Vehicle Centre and have now been replaced by five Isuzu Forward N75.190 4×2 rigids.
The new models all come with the Easyshift automatic transmission and have been fitted with 16ft aluminium drop side bodies. They are now operating out of the Piletec depots in Wigan, Milton Keynes and Harlow, delivering piling equipment to numerous sites nationwide and Piletec anticipates that each vehicle will cover in excess of 40,000 miles per annum over the four-year period.
In addition, Piletec’s parent company Vp plc is also taking delivery of a further six Isuzu Forward N75.190 rigids for its sister company Mr Cropper.
Commenting on the Piletec vehicles, Darren Barton, operations manager at Vp plc said, “We have really been impressed by the reliability of our first five Isuzu trucks and it’s fair to say that we have had no real issues with them at all during that time. Furthermore, the proven payload has been excellent and they are ideal for our operations.”
