Specialist municipal leasing firm Scammell Commercial has added six Isuzu trucks to its fleet with specialist bodywork to suit its customer needs. There are two Grafter 3.5-tonne models with caged tipper conversions, a 7.5-tonne caged tipper and a 13.5-tonne truck equipped with a Hiab Multi-Lift hook loader. The company has also ordered two 7.5-tonne models with NTM refuse bodies.
“Most of our leasing trucks operate in and around the London area and a significant benefit of the Isuzu range is its compact footprint, not just at 3.5-tonnes, but all the way up to 13.5-tonnes,” said Neil Livermore, operations manager at Scammell Commercial.
“We did our research across various manufacturers and by far the Isuzu came out on top with regard to its payload, which is one of the most important features in running a municipal fleet.”
The trucks will operate on the Scammell fleet for a minimum of five years, with the refuse trucks having a much longer working life.
