The Hale, Cheshire-based firm has a further two Isuzu 7.5-tonne rigids, also with dropside bodies, on order for delivery later this year, and it is the first time the firm has operated Isuzus in its fleet.
It originally started off as an events company supplying infrastructure products for festivals, parties and corporate events, however, it has recently diversified into supplying similar infrastructure products for production staff in the film and TV industries, requiring it to invest in the extra trucks.
All the trucks are being supplied by dealer, Warrington Vehicle Centre.
David Hyde, warehouse and fleet manager at Buddha Group, said: “They are far nimbler than their predecessors, with a compact turning circle, whilst also having an excellent towing capability.
"Most of all, we have been impressed by the ease of loading, especially for our range of pedestrian fencing, where the bed design of the truck body allows us to maximise the payload of at least 1 tonne each time, making maximum use of the space with neat, tight storage of the fencing.
“Now that we have had the Isuzus in service for a while, we are also finding that we are getting excellent fuel efficiency from them as we get a better understanding of how good the Isuzu Grafters are in daily operation, when we work them really hard.
“We have been really impressed by the overall service given to us by Warrington Vehicle Centre throughout the whole acquisition process and we cannot praise them highly enough.”
