Isuzu 12 tonner is loads better for Radbournes

With their new Isuzu ‘Forward’ 12-tonne tipper now in service, Hereford-based aggregates company Radbournes can carry up to 6.3 tonnes of payload (even with a crane) on this 4×2 rigid truck, easily outperforming a previously purchased competitors’ 12-tonner that it has replaced in the company’s 10-strong distribution fleet.

The Isuzu F120.240 chassis/cab is fitted with a Stag aluminium tipping body, which has an Atlas 58.2 crane mounted at the rear of the cab. The crane is capable of lifting up to 1095kgs of bagged aggregate at a reach of 5.4 metres.

According to Chris Radbourne, managing director at Radbournes; “If I were to single out the reasons for the increasing numbers of Isuzu trucks in our fleet it is simply that they easily outperform their competitors in terms of both fuel economy and overall running costs. Without a doubt the Isuzu trucks are the most efficient vehicles that we have ever operated in our fleet.”

Radbournes deliver aggregates, sand, gravel and stone, in both loose loads and bagged quantities, using a 10-strong distribution fleet, of which five are Isuzu 7.5 tonne rigids. Local Isuzu dealer Andy Powell Commercials in Hereford supplied the new Isuzu 12-tonner to Radbournes and it is expected to have a working life of approximately 5 years. It is the latest addition to the Radbourne fleet and the first Isuzu in their fleet at this higher weight range.

“The gravel has been delivered thank you. Just wanted to say how helpful your driver was too, it is tight coming along the lane but he didn’t mind and went the extra mile to get the gravel far enough into my field so me could get past it. He was really helpful. Thank you very much.”
