The latest Isuzus comprise 16 Isuzu Forward 7.5 tonne curtainsided rigids with taillifts and two Isuzu Forward 7.5 tonne rigids with beavertail plant-carrying bodies, together with a single Isuzu Forward 7.5 tonne rigid with a drop side body to fencing specification. All have been specified as Forward N75.190 models with the Easyshift automatic gearbox, while all three different body types have been supplied by Speedy Hire’s preferred bodybuilder, PPS Commercials Ltd in Bury, Lancashire.

Mark Woodworth, head of transport and logistics at Speedy Hire plc, said: “Our normal body choice with Isuzu trucks is the beavertail specification, however, for this order we were looking for an increased number of curtainsided 7.5 tonners and once again the Isuzu chassis was spot on, as it’s a lightweight rigid chassis where we can maximise the payload to suit our business requirements.”

The vehicles have been incorporated into the 200-strong Speedy Hire fleet on a phased basis, with the final remaining vehicles going into service by April this year. All will be run on a three to five-year period.
