Calder Valley Skip Hire takes eight Hyva skiploaders
Calder Valley Skip Hire has taken delivery of eight Hyva skiploaders for its waste management and recycling operations.
The Yorkshire-based firm has ordered five 18-tonne and three 12-tonne DAF 4x2 chassis fitted with Hyva 2012XL and Hyva 20008TA extendable arm lifting gear, respectively.
The 2012XL has a lifting capacity of 12 tonnes when closed and 8 tonnes when extended, while the 2008TA has a maximum load of 8.5 tonnes (closed) and 4.5 tonnes (extended).
"These are the first Hyva vehicles to join our fleet and we are extremely pleased with them," Calder Valley Skip Hire MD Joe Sawrij said.
"We chose Hyva as we believe they are simply the best in the market – we spoke to many people before making our decision and they all pointed us towards Hyva. In operation, we are finding them to be easy-to-use, robust and more than up to the job,” he added.
The Hyva skiploaders also come equipped with Hyva's TRR 'Handy' full remote control system, which features a hand-held remote control module.
AIM Logistics adds 12 new DAF XFs to fleet
AIM Logistics has added 12 new DAF XF 480 tractor units to its fleet, supplied by Imperial Commercials Worcester.
It means the the temperature controlled transport specialist’s fleet is now 80% DAF.
AIM has operated a number of tractors across a range of major truck manufactures since 2004 and describes DAF as better “by a country mile”.
Company director, Ismail Elmagdoub, said: “DAF’s whole-life proposition made our most recent acquisition a no-brainer.
"We can purchase four new DAFs for the same cost as three from another well-known premium brand.”
“And, with consistent fuel returns of between 10 and 11 mpg on mixed work, and outstanding back-up from Imperial Commercials, it’s small wonder DAF now makes up the majority of the fleet.”
The new additions to the fleet coincide with the company’s move to a new £5m DC and cold-store.
