Glendale's new Isuzus support arboriculture applications in North London

Glendale makes Isuzu standard for its 7.5 tonne fleet

Published:  24 August, 2015

Specialist national green services provider Glendale Managed Services Ltd has bought two new Isuzus to work on specific new contracts in the North London area.

The Isuzu N75.190 Forward Euro VI rigids are used in the maintenance of trees in the London Boroughs of Harrow and Hillingdon, handling a range of arboriculture applications, from supporting routine tree-felling to annual pruning programmes.

Stuart Darbyshire, commercial director at Glendale Managed Services Ltd said: ‘Glendale is a relatively new user of Isuzu trucks, taking our first Isuzus in 2014.

‘We were really impressed by the demonstration vehicle supplied by our local dealer and subsequently bought two new 6.2 tonne GVW Isuzus on the back of this initial contact.

‘Both the original Isuzus performed really well in service, so we decided to duplicate the order for our 2015 requirements but this time moving from 6.2 tonne vehicles to the latest Euro VI 7.5 tonne specification.'

The two new Isuzus have been fitted with Easyshift automated transmission and feature a secure storage/tool box compartment behind the cab and a compact tipping body. The vehicles are able to tow a chipper which feeds the tipper body with woodchip waste.

All four Isuzu rigids have been supplied by local dealer Cornwallis Commercials Ltd and the new vehicles are operating from Glendale's Watford depot.

‘Based on the performance of the four Isuzu trucks over the past 18 months, we now consider the Isuzu Forward to be the standard 7.5 tonne vehicle for our fleet; it has become the template for future purchases,' said Stuart Darbyshire.

Keith Child, marketing director atIsuzu Truck UK, said: ‘We now look forward to working closely with Glendale on their future fleet requirements.'
