Hendy Van and Truck has supplied 11 Iveco Stralis rigids and four Daily Hi-Matic vans to plant hire specialist CBL.
The 26-tonne Stralis Hi-Street rigids feature day cabs and come with Andover Trailers low-profile plant bodies with beavertails, while seven have been converted to four-axle 8x2 rigids. The rigids are all powered by Cursor engines while the seven converted Stralis rigids were specified with a Cursor 11 engine that produces 420hp.
All come with an eight-year Iveco Elements R&M contract and are financed through Iveco Capital. The 3.5-tonne Daily chassis cabs are mounted with plant bodies built by Brit-Tipp and also feature the eight-speed Hi-Matic automatic gearbox.
CBL depot manager Kevin Clark said a seed Stralis impressed during its first year of work at the family-run company’s Maidstone branch. “We first considered the Stralis because it seemed perfectly suited for our operation - offering a healthy payload potential, strong Cursor driveline and impressive manoeuvrability - which is essential when delivering plant in particularly challenging locations,” he said.
“This opinion was reinforced after running our first Iveco out of the Maidstone branch. The Stralis delivered on all fronts and we received excellent feedback from our drivers.” The new arrivals will work across CBL’s seven sites in Bridgend, Bristol, Crawley, Maidstone, Newbury, Saltash and Southampton.
