Warrington Vehicle Centre has supplied Speedy Hire with 19 Isuzu Forward N75.190 rigids.

The order includes 16 Forward 7.5-tonne curtainsiders with tail-lifts, two Forward 7.5-tonne rigids with beavertail plant-carrying bodies and a Forward 7.5-tonne rigid with a dropside body to fencing specification. They include Easyshift automatic gearboxes, with the three different body types built by PPS Commercials in Bury, Lancashire.

Speedy Hire has run 60 Isuzu trucks in its fleet since 2009. Mark Woodworth, head of transport and logistics at Speedy Hire, said the new vehicles will work across the operator’s UK network and join its fleet of 200 vehicles.

“Our normal body choice with Isuzu trucks is the beavertail specification, however, for this order we were looking for an increased number of curtain-sided 7.5-tonners”, he added.

“It is normal Speedy Hire policy to run these vehicles for a three- to five-year period, however such has been the reliability and toughness of the Isuzus that we have kept some of the very first original Isuzu trucks in our fleet. I am pleased to say that they are still going strong after nine years of very hard work.”
