Isuzu wins in North East road works light trucks orders26 September 2019

After taking delivery of four Isuzu 7.5 tonne tippers last year, Kingstown Works has recently added to its commercial vehicle fleet with a further six Isuzu N75.190 (E) 7.5 tonne crew cab tippers that have now gone into service, working on behalf of the Highways Department at Hull City Council. These vehicles will be in the KWL fleet for a minimum of seven years.

The six Isuzu 7.5 tonners each feature the Easyshift automated transmission and all the vehicles have front-mounted Penny Hydraulic lifts and Gardner Denver drive systems that provide compressed air to operate the plant and equipment used for ongoing road repairs.

As part of its continual fleet improvement programme, KWL has also placed an order for a further seven Isuzu 7.5 tonne tippers and these are scheduled for delivery in early 2020. This fleet acquisition order includes six Isuzu 7.5 tonne day cab chassis with caged tippers and fold-over tail lifts, as well as one additional Isuzu 7.5 tonne crew cab tipper with rear crane.

Operating out of its city centre location in Hull, Kingstown Works currently operates a fleet of over 150 commercial vehicles, as well as maintaining and running over 400 pieces of plant and equipment.

“The long-term relationship between Kingstown Works Ltd and Isuzu Truck UK is a classic example of how two companies can work very closely together to ensure the specification for new vehicles entering a fleet satisfactorily meets the requirements of the end user, in this case Hull City Council. In conjunction with Thompson Commercials in Hull, Isuzu Truck has an excellent working relationship with KWL, which will continue well into the next decade,’ said Dave Slatcher, municipal fleet sales manager, Isuzu Truck UK.
