Scania P500 XT – Used Truck of the Day
Beaches Logistics Carlisle has acquired four DAF XF 530 FT 4x2 Super Space Cabs. Fitted with tracking units and camera systems, the 4x2 units are being used to assist haulage firm Modular Movements, which specialises in transporting modular buildings (prefabricated structures with repeated sections, typically constructed off-site) to the likes of schools, hospitals and offices. The vehicles are fitted with DAF's MX-13 engine, TraXon gearbox, Alcoa Dura Bright alloy wheels and skylights.
They are managed by Hexagon leasing and include an R&M contract. "We've already seen an improvement in our fuel economy with the units averaging between 9.5mpg and 10.5mpg, and some light loads up to 12mpg," said Beaches' commercial director Bryan Jones. "We have been delivering a number of these loads from the Isle of Wight to Inverness, but these units are built for trampers.
Our drivers think they are brilliant, they are fully kitted out plus they look the part."
