First of several new IVECO X-WAY for turf supplier Springbridge Direct
Buckinghamshire-based turf, topsoil & aggregates supplier Springbridge Direct continues to invest in its truck fleet, taking one of the UK’s first new IVECO X-WAYs. Joining the brand’s new WAY range of heavy trucks, the IVECO X-WAY caters for on-road and off-road capability for last-mile deliveries away from the tarmac. Springbridge currently runs 19 heavy trucks, 18 of which are IVECO.
Supplied by long-standing IVECO dealer, Northern Commercials in Hildenborough, this new vehicle is the first of its new-generation IVECOs to arrive, but notably, is slightly different to its normal 8×4 tipper-grabs The on-road homologated AD350X46Y/PS ON has been decked out by Colliers Truck Bodies with a flat-bed and rear-mounted Palfinger PK.501 SLD5 crane, destined for work on the turf, pallet and bulk bag delivery arm of the business. Until now, the company has relied on an artic and two 44t IVECO drawbar units for this; however, the new truck enables much easier access to a wider variety of locations, both business and private.
The 8x2x6 axle configuration means that the rearmost steering axle can be pneumatically lifted, minimising wear on lighter runs, maximising payload on heavier jobs, yet affording the driver precision manoeuvrability despite its sizeable 6,050mm wheelbase. Powering the truck is IVECO’s 11.1-litre CURSOR 11, in this case supplying 454bhp and 2,150Nm through the 12-speed HI-TRONIX automated gearbox. A hydraulic ZF NH/4C Power Take Off pump takes care of the auxiliary body equipment, while IVECO’s HI-SCR exhaust system deals with particulates.
As Springbridge Direct often operates within London, a FORS Gold accreditation mandates fitment of a full suite of safety equipment, therefore the new truck is fully complimented by under-run protection bars, illuminated cyclist warning boards, audible turn warnings, a side-scan system and 360-degree cameras. “What brought us to the IVECO brand was the value for money, buying ex-Clancy Docwra Trakkers about 15 years ago,” commented Springbridge’s operations director, John Keating. “Our latest IVECO X-WAY looks very smart and has a fantastic payload too, near-on 20-tonnes!” The company employs a five-year replacement strategy, with this and two more new IVECO X-WAYs due in March replacing a handful of 300,000km 65-plate Trakkers.
Serving London and the home counties, Springbridge doesn’t have to cover a great deal of distance; however this policy maximises resale value, while ensuring that all vehicles meet the latest safety and emissions standards for the capital.
