JG Plant has taken delivery of an Iveco New Eurocargo, featuring the manufacturer’s patented HI-SCR engine technology, for delivering agricultural plant across South Wales.
The 4x2 rigid is the tractor distributors first Iveco, and was specified with a plant body and Fassi crane. It is powered by Iveco’s Tector-5 engine, producing up to 210hp and 750nm of torque.
Gareth Rees, JG Plant managing director, said: “We’ve had nothing but positive feedback from the drivers since putting the Iveco into service. From day one it’s had a very busy introduction to life on our fleet, and it hasn’t skipped a beat.
The New Eurocargo – which was named International Truck of the Year 2016 – will be in operation five days a week at JG Plant, supporting the company’s tractor delivery operations, alongside a side-line delivering landscaping products and raw materials for JG Plant’s sister company – sports ground engineering and landscaping specialist, Inscapes.
JG Plant’s New Eurocargo features Iveco’s patented HI-SCR system, which has been designed to meet Euro 6 emissions standards without the need for exhaust gas recirculation. This means productivity is increased as HI-SCR requires neither driver involvement nor downtime from active regeneration, meaning no fuel is utilised to burn particulates and no energy is lost to cool down exhaust gases.
