GCH cuts fuel bill by £100 a week after switching to used Mercedes-Benz Arocs

GCH Haulage acquires Mercedes-Benz Arocs tipper

GCH Haulage has reduced its fuel bill by £100 a week after acquiring an ex-demonstrator Mercedes-Benz Arocs tipper, says owner-driver Gary Hunt.

The Arocs 3240 had 35,000km on the clock when Hunt purchased it from Rygor’s reigning Mercedes-Benz used truck sales manager of the year Roy Simpson, who arranged funding from Mercedes-Benz Financial Services.

GCH Haulage’s truck is powered by a 10.7-litre, straight-six engine generating 400PS, and has a ClassicSpace M-Cab with 170mm engine tunnel.

Optional extras include the fuel-saving Predictive Powertrain Control system, leather-upholstered seats, a high-performance engine brake, and Alcoa alloy wheels.

Fitted with a steel Thompsons Loadmaster tipping body, the truck works mainly within a 40-mile radius of the operator’s base in Rainham, although it occasionally travels further afield.
