Astra’s new fleet of ecologically advanced trucks brings FORS gold compliance and greater efficiency.
Over 25 new 7.5 ton and 3.5 ton Isuzu vehicles are ready to deliver Astra’s attachments across the country.
Astra Attachment Solutions have a fleet of over 20 trucks carrying out an average of 60+ deliveries and collections each day from sites across the country, so finding a vehicle that could offer a substantial payload, a performance that complies with FORS Gold standards and be adapted to store and carry a bespoke set of tools and spare parts was not an easy task.
These new Isuzu trucks have been 12 months in the planning and manufacture, with ongoing liaison between Astra’s operations & transport personnel and the team at Isuzu Warrington…
One key feature for Astra is the added safety features these trucks offer, this includes safe and visible storage for all tools that can be access from ground level allowing our team of engineers and delivery drivers to carry out on site repairs to our equipment – as well as the standing fitting (attachments to the excavator) service offered by Astra.
On any given day a driver can find himself delivering an auger to fit a 3 ton machine, followed by fitting a set of pallet forks to a 13t excavator and a breaker to a 1 ton mini digger, not only can the 3.5t vehicles carry all these items to different sites in 1 safe load (strapped down securely of course), but they’ll also be fully equipped to fit these to any machine and if need be they can also attend nearby sites to assist with any on site breakdowns such as snapped chisels or burst hoses.
