Shipley, West Yorkshire-based catering vehicle maker Jiffy Trucks, has added the Isuzu Grafter to its range to replace the Nissan Cabstar.

The Isuzu Grafter Jiffy Banquet is based on the Isuzu Grafter Green 3.5-tonne short wheelbase 4x2 rigid chassis cab, with a 1.9-litre diesel engine that produces 125hp. It is the first time Jiffy Trucks has worked with Isuzu and the first three vehicles have been delivered to St Helens-based 2U Food, as part of a total order of six.

The body includes heated areas, as well as chilled and ambient, and there are areas to store stock, as well as delivery stacking trays, which allow operators to deliver buffets and event catering.

Jiffy’s MD John Briggs said: “The Isuzu Grafter Green launch was perfect timing for us, as it gives us a short wheelbase, single axle, reliable 3.5-tonne vehicle backed by excellent national, award-winning service support.

“Historically, the 3.5-tonne truck is the most popular selling vehicle in our product range as it enables customers to have the opportunity for a much larger body for display.

“Initial customer reaction to the addition of the Isuzu Grafter Jiffy Banquet has been extremely good, and we estimate that we should be selling well over 40 of these trucks in the first year alone.”
