SHB Hire has ordered its first six new Eurocargo tippers.
Supplied by Hendy Van & Truck, the tippers are expected to remain in service at SHB for the next five years and were selected based on the proven performance of existing Iveco vans and trucks across the fleet. SHB Hire is one of Iveco’s largest national customers, taking delivery of more than 700 Daily and Eurocargo vehicles during 2015.
The batch of tippers follows the delivery of 280 Daily light commercials into service already this year.
Derek Lowis, national truck fleet manager at SHB Hire, said: “We operate hundreds of Eurocargos and they perform really well for us; we’re confident this new model will be no different.
“Compared against the previous generation Euorcargo these new trucks are quieter, more fuel- efficient, more comfortable and even more manoeuvrable, which is perfect given they will spend a lot of time working in urban areas. The specification of the 75E16K tipper is also spot-on for our needs.”
“We put warranty work through the Iveco network and receive great service. Our team has a strong rapport with the local dealer contacts across the country and the aftersales support we get complements the service we provide to our own customers.”
The new Eurocargo truck uses Iveco’s HI-SCR technology for meeting Euro VI emissions limits. Iveco says it is perfect for hire fleets as no action is required by the driver to operate the system and there is no need to make periodic stops for DPF forced regeneration.
