ITUK Man Coed 12.19 LoRes

Welsh arborist and grounds maintenance company Man Coed VM has taken delivery of its first Isuzu 3.5 tonne rigid trucks after receiving a glowing recommendation from a subcontractor who also runs them.

The Isuzu Grafter N35.125 4x2 rigids are replacing five incumbent Ford Transit arb vehicles in the company’s 31-strong commercial vehicle fleet.

They are fitted with specialist Brit Tip tipper arb bodies and cab-mounted tool chests and have now gone into service at Deeside-based Man Coed.

Towing designated chipper trailers, the vehicles will provide arboriculture services to customers within the North Wales and Deeside areas.

They will cover approximately 15,000 miles per annum and were supplied by local Isuzu Truck dealer Warrington Vehicle Centre.

“About 18 months ago, one of our subcontractors showed us around his latest Isuzu Grafter truck and we were really impressed by both the build quality and its overall performance," said Tony Jones, finance director, Man Coed VM Ltd.

"As we had five existing Ford Transit rigids coming to the end of their working life, we decided to contact Warrington Vehicle Centre who provided a demonstration Grafter for evaluation. The rest is history and we now have five new Isuzu Grafters on the road working really well for us."
