Ability Handling has recently taken delivery of a Mercedes Actros 2545LS Big Space tractor unit.
The Mercedes is a significant upgrade over our previous unit and with 450hp on tap it provides ample pulling power for operating fully loaded with big Doosan, Combilift and Aislemaster trucks. In addition, the combination of the Euro-5 compliant engine and aerodynamic cab design is achieving almost twice the mpg of our old unit, slashing thousands of pounds from our fuel bills each year.
The cab interior is literally a step up and includes features to improve comfort, both while driving and on overnight stops. This is particularly important given our expanding operating range through additional sales territories and new product lines such as Cushman electric vehicles.
Our full time driver Steve is delighted with his new truck and says he often receives compliments how well it looks. Our only worry is he will wash the paint off!
