Exeter-based Apex Scaffolding recently added a new Isuzu F110.210 (E) to its fleet, two-thirds of which are vehicles from the Japanese marque. The 11-tonne (12-U.S.-ton) rigid scaffolding truck has an aluminium dropside body and will be used to deliver scaffolding to various construction sites large and small around the South West. Apex expects the truck to cover 32,187 kilometres (20,000 miles) per year in that role.
Isuzu says that it is developed a reputation of being “the go-to truck specification for scaffolding companies,” adding that the ruggedness and reliability as well as the payload capacity of its vehicles stand up to the sometimes-challenging working conditions. For its part, Apex says it also appreciated the visibility Isuzus provide and that they are “very manoeuvrable when on site,” says MD Glenn Haines.
“Scaffolding work is a tough call for any vehicle as each day the vehicles go out or come back, from site fully laden, so our commitment to the Isuzu truck is based on a proven long-term reputation within our fleet,” Haines says. “Our 7.5-t scaffolding truck fleet is 100% Isuzu, however for the latest additional new truck we have gone up the gross vehicle weight to the 11-t model. This Isuzu is now working alongside multiple gangs of scaffolders, enabling a much larger quantity of raw materials to be delivered to site to support them.”
