Dyson has pulling power for Ross’s Garage 11 November 2011

Ross's Garage, in Milton of Clava, Culloden Moor, has gone back to the Roger Dyson for the latest addition to its fleet of recovery vehicles, citing the vehicle provider's top-quality workmanship and parts service as a reason for the decision.

The Hydraloader 3000La (Low approach) slidebed is fabricated from lightweight aluminium and has a 3,000kg capacity. It is mounted on a 7-tonne gvw Iveco Eco Daily 70C18D crewcab chassis, which is also low weight, so contributing to the vehicle's high payload.

Power comes from a Euro 4 3-litre turbo diesel engine that is also impressively fuel-efficient. Ross's Garage reports returns of 22mpg from four 400-mile round trips to Edinburgh.

The new arrival has lined-up alongside Ross's Garage's 41 other recovery vehicles, many of which were also built by Roger Dyson. They include a pair of Hydraloader 4500La steel slidebeds, which entered service earlier this year.

As with the latest Iveco chassis, the Euro 5 12-tonne Renault Midlum crewcabs, on which these two bodies are based, were also supplied by Roger Dyson.

"We've had equipment from other manufacturers and we also build our own but Roger's is definitely the best," explains Michael Ross. "The quality and workmanship that goes into his bodies is second to none, while the winching capability of his equipment is unbelievable.
