Supplied by IVECO dealer North East Truck & Van, the model was chosen for its suitability for light off-road missions.
Each vehicle is powered by an 8.7-litre Cursor 9 diesel engine, which delivers 306bhp and 1,300Nm of torque. The trucks are mounted with dropside bodywork and a truck-mounted crane to assist with the loading and unloading of building products.
Shane Thompson, head of transport at the Hull-based operator, says: “The new X-Way hit the mark perfectly. Hearing positive feedback from another builders’ merchant which took one of the first new models convinced me to place an order. So far, the new X-Way’s performance has been excellent.”
The X-Way’s modular construction allows vehicles to be specified to suit on or off-road applications. MKM chose the ‘On’ version, which provides on-road homologation on a reinforced chassis, with easy cab access and optimum visibility. The range also includes On+ and Off models, for vehicles which spend more time off-road.
