Pollock (Scotrans) welcomes Mercedes-Benz Actros1 as new fleet flagship
Pollock (Scotrans) has put a Mercedes-Benz Actros1 into service as its new fleet flagship vehicle.
The Actros1, which is number 1/100 of the limited edition truck, was supplied by the Broxburn branch of Western Commercial.
Pollock's new truck is in the care of driver Allan Holt, who said he loved his previous Actros "but the Actros1 is something else altogether. In terms of comfort and practicality it’s pretty much perfect.
"The uprated multimedia entertainment system is brilliant, the leather massage seats and Premium Comfort mattress supremely comfortable, and the additional rear overhead lockers very useful.”
He added that the fitted PowerShift 3 automated transmission is "a superb piece of engineering".
"I’m always hearing about Swedish V8s but my Mercedes-Benz will leave them for dead on the hills, and you barely feel you’re moving, it’s that smooth.”
Holt spent the the first weekend with his new Actros1 at Truckfest, where it won second prize in the Best Kept New Truck competition.
The Mercedes is fitted with Nordic bars on the front, which was Holt's own request.
Pollock MD Scott Pollock said: "Allan is a skilled and highly valued professional who looks after company assets as though they were his own. It’s for this reason that we were happy to indulge his request for the Nordic bars and other enhancements. The result is a fantastic new flagship for our business.”
