RG Bassett and Sons goes for Iveco Ecostralis

  • 11 May 2012
  • By Roger Brown

Stoke-on-Trent haulage company RG Bassett and Sons has taken delivery of its first Iveco Ecostralis.

The company hopes the 6×2 mid-lift tractor unit’s ability to limit engine power and torque according to gross vehicle weight will help deliver fuel savings.

Ashley Bassett, joint MD, placed the order with local dealer Sherwood Truck and Van after trialling a conventional Stralis demonstrator in the fleet for one month.

Bassett says: “The demonstrator proved to be as good on fuel as any other tractor we operate. It was enough to make us want to put an Ecostralis through its paces on a longer term basis.

“With all of the new technology Iveco has incorporated into the Ecostralis, there’s the prospect of achieving tangible fuel savings over time.

“If that proves to be the case then we may see more Iveco tractors joining our fleet in the future.”
