Wembley-based Carey Group has ordered its first seven Mercedes-Benz trucks - 8x4 Arocs 3240s - from Intercounty Truck and Van.

The 8-wheelers have ClassicSpace M-Cabs and are powered by 10.7-litre straight-six engines, which produce 394hp and drive through Mercedes PowerShift 3 automated transmissions.They also come with recordable cameras supplied and fitted by Exeros Technologies that provide 360-degree coverage around the vehicle.

Other safety features include proximity side sensors that issue flashing visual, as well as audible, warnings, and side protection between the two sets of axles, to prevent cyclists being dragged under the wheels.The Arocs are also fitted with truck-specific satellite navigation systems.

Bodywork is by Abba Commercials of St Helens - five are steel tippers and assigned to general site muckaway duties, while the remaining two are hook-loaders that carry bins with capacities of up to 12m3.The Arocs are now being inspected and serviced by Intercounty Truck and Van under Mercedes-Benz R&M contracts.

Gary Condon, director of PJ Carey Plant and Fleet, which will operate the Arocs, said: “Intercounty has worked closely with ourselves and with the bodybuilder to develop a specification that reflects our commitment to the protection of vulnerable road users. It’s been very much a three-way partnership.”
