Read about the new trucks with bespoke features and added safety

The long awaited new trucks for breakdowns and recoveries have finally arrived on site and there is some excitement about them in the yard. Custom made to our specifications by Powertec Vehicle Engineering and custom wrapped by LW Graphics, the two newly built vehicles are fitted with a range of bespoke features to enhance the driver experience and improve safety. The 12 tonne trucks, DAF LF260s with a gross vehicle weight of 12000 KG, are more stable, more comfortable. The new additions to our in-house breakdown and recovery service are part of our continous programme for improving customer service and employee safety.  They have added features above and beyond the standard issue including the following options;

  • Extended Day Cab for greater driver comfort
  • PX7 260HP Engine
  • 6 Speed AS Tronic Gearbox
  • SAT NAV
  • Adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning for maximum safety
  • Full 360 degree camera system, by SMUK
  • 6000 kg tilt and slide bed with 2000 kg rear spec lift.
  • 3.6T Hydraulic Winch
  • Full LED Warning Lights & Beacon Flyer
  • Rear air suspension allows the driver to lower the rear of the bed and reduce the loading angle.
