“To keep up with our customer requirements, we needed a crew cab truck with good payload: naturally, the Isuzu fitted the bill perfectly," explained Mark Crawley, director, Road Runners Recovery Service.
"In addition, being based within the London Low Emission Zone, all our vehicles must satisfy the stringent emission standards. Overall, we felt that the Isuzu 7.5 tonne Euro 6 crew cab was the right vehicle for our fleet requirements."
The first Isuzu in the Road Runners fleet is an Isuzu N75.190 manual crew cab rigid truck, fitted with a fully demountable Worldwide Recovery Aluminium Lo Slider body, supplied by RecoveryVehicles.com.
Wrapped in a red livery, the new Isuzu is a high specification recovery vehicle featuring air-conditioning and five cameras, including a reversing camera, that provide 24-hour recording at all times. There is additional voice recording in the cab too. Other features specified on the new Isuzu include extra-large lockers, a sliding winch, an 4° loading angle, which is ideal for low profile, prestige vehicles recovery, and a second car lift for towing an additional vehicle.
According to Road Runners Recovery Service, this vehicle will be covering approximately 50,000 miles per year and is being operated predominantly by two dedicated drivers. In September this year, this new Isuzu for Road Runners Recovery Service was the centrepiece of the Worldwide Recovery stand at the Tow Show in Telford.
