Scaffolding business adds first Isuzu trucks to fleet03 July 2019

Scottish scaffolding business Abscaff has taken delivery of its first Isuzu trucks, with four Grafter Green 3.5-tonne dropside rigids joining the 22-strong fleet.

When it was time to replace four older vehicles within the fleet, the operator evaluated the options available.

“Without a doubt, the Isuzu Grafter Green stood out for us,” says Garry Butcher, operations director at Abscaff.

“The cost of operating an Isuzu definitely appealed to us, as too did the promise of long-term reliability, as a result of the good reputation that the Isuzu brand has here in the north-east of Scotland,” he adds.

Supplied by dealer Almar Garage, in Aberdeen, the new additions are all Grafter Green N35.125 twin wheel LWB dropside trucks, and are expected to be in operation for four years.

“Isuzu’s three-year warranty gives us the peace of mind, especially when moving to a new truck marquee, but the overall package put forward by Isuzu was excellent for us,” says Butcher.

“So far, we have been particularly impressed by the truck’s payload, which gives us maximum load capability, and this is, of course, essential on this type of intensive scaffolding work.”
