Road Runners Recovery Service has added its first high-payload Isuzu 7.5 tonne recovery vehicle to its fleet.
The Orpington-based company, which operates nine vehicles, took delivery of an Isuzu N75.190 manual crew cab rigid truck, fitted with a fully demountable Worldwide Recovery Aluminium Lo Slider body, supplied by RecoveryVehicles.com.
“To keep up with our customer requirements, we needed a crew cab truck with good payload: naturally, the Isuzu fitted the bill perfectly. 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 VI crew cab was the right vehicle for our fleet requirements,” said Mark Crawley, director, Road Runners Recovery Service.
The vehicle is specified with 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 impressive 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.
Crawley added: “Both drivers are extremely happy with the spacious Isuzu crew cab, and they find the vehicle is extremely easy to drive and certainly powerful enough to handle our recovery operations.”
