Autogreen has taken delivery of it first fifth generation Mercedes-Benz Actros, a 26-tonne 2540L with a low-roofed CompactSpace cab.
Supplied to the Daventry-based end-of-life vehicle collection and disposal specialist by local dealer Intercounty Truck & Van, it features an eight-car Belle Car Transporters & Specialised Trailers transporter body.
Autogreen specified the Actros Safety, Sight, Extra Line and Style Line packages, in addition to opting for MirrorCam box.
Director Paul Hillier said: “The latest Actros stands out from the crowd thanks to its array of new technology. Safety and environmental compatibility were important factors in our decision to acquire this new Mercedes-Benz, and we’re particularly pleased that its four-star DVS rating means the truck will be allowed access to London for the next 10 years.
“The new transporter is a fantastic addition to the line-up and has already integrated seamlessly with the exacting standards of our operation. Our collection volumes continue to increase, so it was important that the Actros be equipped to cater for all types of end-of-life vehicle.”
The new truck will be inspected and maintained under a Mercedes-Benz Complete Service Contract by Intercounty Truck & Van’s Milton Keynes branch.
