Sub Zero & Wolf has taken delivery of three new top-spec Iveco Eurocargos from local dealer Acorn Truck Sales, edging out the only two competitor brand trucks in its 18-strong fleet.
The 7.5 tonners stand out for their black paintwork and striking liveries, and will be used to deliver premium products including huge fridge-freezers and range cookers to homes nationwide – including to the firm’s long list of celebrity customers.
Essex-based Sub Zero & Wolf insists on using its own commercial vehicles for all deliveries, occasionally aided by cranes or helicopters to lift products directly into new-build properties or major refurbishments. The Eurocargos will also frequently be used as delivery tools themselves, backing right up to doorways to allow the tail-lift to load directly into a property.
“There’s perhaps a slight bit of overindulgence with our trucks – but the fleet has to reflect the quality and presentation of our kitchen appliances. We ticked a lot of option boxes when we placed the order with Acorn Truck Sales, but the result is a striking Iveco fleet which reflects our brand perfectly,” said Ricky Davies, operations manager at Sub Zero & Wolf.
Each new Eurocargo 75E21 rigid benefits from a powerful 210hp Euro 6 engine providing ample performance for long-distance deliveries, along with all the benefits of Iveco’s unique HI-SCR technology. HI-SCR means there is no need to make periodic stops for forced regeneration of the diesel particulate filter, as can happen with EGR systems.
The new arrivals are also the first vehicles on the company’s fleet to feature Iveco’s two-pedal EuroTronic gearbox, manufactured by ZF.
