Brand New Truck For APC
It’s out with the old and in with the new this week at APC Aerial Platforms Carlisle! What better way to begin 2021 than in our brand new 70 plate Scania P410 XT and Sterling body.
How it began..
We began our journey in a trusted IVECO truck which served us well whilst we were initially opening up in the Carlisle area. As time went on, we became busier and busier delivering powered access equipment to the surrounding areas of Carlisle such as Dumfries, Oban, Lockerbie, Galloway and more which eventually led us to our latest investment of a brand new Scania P410 32-tonne rigid!
The new truck will not only help us to cut down the time it takes to deliver equipment but also reduce our carbon footprint thanks to its highly efficient engine.
Features and benefits of the new truck
Custom-designed by our sister company, APL Aerial Platforms Ltd, the unit features a bespoke Sterling body to accommodate some of the challenges faced with standard designs. A heightened chassis for construction sites and increased lashing rings through the centre of the body along with a day cab to maximise body length means we are able to fit more powered access equipment on safely and increase our delivery rate.
Check out the video above of our driver handing over the keys to her old wagon and taking delivery of her brand new truck at APL HQ, shortly followed by a quick collection of one of our JLG 450AJ Diesel Boom Lifts from a good customer of ours in Carlisle who had been benefiting from the impressive features of the 45ft boom lift on a new construction site. After leaving site we caught up with our driver to see how she was finding the new wagon and we heard nothing but positive feedback. “I especially like the low-level passenger window that has been added as it provides me with extra visibility when driving through confined areas on site.”
