Isuzu’s small footprint attracts Scammell Commercial 12 May 2021

Specialist municipal leasing company Scammell Commercial has added six new Isuzu trucks to its fleet covering 3.5 tonne, 7.5 tonne and 13.5 tonne GVW models.

Two Isuzu Grafter N35.125 caged tippers, one Isuzu N75.150 caged tipper, and an Isuzu F135.240 Hiab Multi-Lift hook loader truck have recently gone into service within the leasing fleet at Scammell Commercial. These four will be joined before the end of the month by a further two new Isuzu N75.150 rigids that are both fitted with NTM refuse bodies.

“Prior to these new Isuzu vehicles being specified, we did our research across various truck manufacturers and by far Isuzu came out on top with regards to its proven payload, which is one of the most important features in running a municipal fleet. The confidence and support from Isuzu in also providing a three-year warranty as standard was another key factor towards this decision as it enables us to have much greater control over the cost of ownership,” said Neil Livermore, operations manager, Scammell Commercial.

Livermore continues: “Most of our leasing trucks operate in and around the London area, so a further significant benefit of the Isuzu truck range is its compact footprint, not just at 3.5 tonne but all the way up to 13.5 tonne GVW. The small footprint is ideal for working at sites across London where there is limited vehicle access, and in particular, we are finding that the 7.5 tonne Isuzu with the refuse bodies is becoming much more popular now for this reason alone.”

All the new Isuzus have been supplied to Scammell Commercial by local Isuzu dealer DT Trucks and will have a minimum five years within the fleet, with the exception of the refuse vehicles that will have a much longer working life.
