The new addition is an Isuzu 18 tonne, 300bhp, 4x2 rigid, the first 300 horsepowered 18 tonner that Isuzu has sold in this country.

Hales' transport and sales manager Martin Nealon said: "Having run Isuzus at 7.5 tonne for some time, we were well aware of their proven payload advantage that has become so important to us for our delivery operation. When the time came to replace our old 18 tonner we had no hesitation in specifying our first Isuzu at this weight."

The recently delivered new Isuzu F180.300 4x2 rigid, was supplied by local Isuzu dealer Walls Truck Services in Newport, and features the high performance 300bhp Isuzu turbo intercooled 6 cylinder diesel power unit, matched to a 9-speed ZF manual transmission.

Fitted with an 18ft dropside body featuring a rear-mounted Atlas crane, the new Isuzu 18 tonner is involved in distribution work within a 50 mile radius of the company's depot in Drybrook, Gloucestershire.
