Crash Cushion Rental Solutions has taken delivery of its 20th Iveco Eurocargo 4x2 rigid and is now halfway to receiving all 40 vehicles ordered for its fleet.
The Manchester-based rental company is one of the country's newest providers of impact protection vehicles (IPVs), also known as crash cushion or impact attenuator trucks, and placed its entire order with Iveco.
Supplied by Brighouse-based Northern Commercials, the fleet of Eurocargo rigids each feature bespoke traffic management bodywork built by PPS Commercials and the cushions manufactured by Verdegro, being supplied by Highway Care.
Phil Glasier, fleet manager at Crash Cushion Rental Solutions, says: "The highway maintenance sector has very specfic requirements when it comes to the vehicles they want to use.
In addition to the crash cushion, which reduces the impact of a collision by up to 50%, the truck's traffic management body features sign storage compartments, a cone storage area to the rear of the working platform, light and sandbag storage compartments under the vehicle, and cone wells to the left and right of the working areas.
