New Mercedes-Benz Antos rigids with cranes for Selwood

Euro Commercials

South Wales dealer Euro Commercials has supplied Eastleigh, Hampshire-based pump manufacturer Selwood with five new Mercedes-Benz Antos rigids with cranes.

The two 6x2 Antos 2530s produce 299hp, while the three 4x2 Antos 1824s have 238hp versions of the same 7.7-litre straight-six engine.

They all have Mercedes PowerShift automated transmissions, ClassicSpace day cabs and platform bodies from Bury-based PPS Commercials that feature hydraulically-operated side safety walkways and fall-arrest systems.

The trucks feature blind-spot minimisation equipment, cyclist sensors and left-turn alarms.

TH White, of Devizes, supplied and installed the radio remote-controlled cranes. They transport pumping and ancillary equipment to and from customer sites across the UK and are inspected and serviced under Mercedes R&M contracts.

Selwood transport manager Paul Green said: “The overnight servicing which Mercedes-Benz dealers provide is essential in enabling us to maximise vehicle uptime and thereby ensure that our customers continue to benefit from a seamless service.”

In the past year Selwood has also purchased 40 Mercedes Sprinter, Vito and Citan vans from Euro Commercials.

Green said: “We ordered our latest trucks from Euro Commercials because of the excellent service levels it has provided in the past.”
