Ellerslie acquires DAF tipper grab from MV Commercial

30 November 2023 #Truck

Ellerslie T&C has sourced a new DAF CF 450 tipper grab direct from MV Commercial’s Ready to Go fleet, helping the utilities contractor to avoid lengthy lead times.

MV Commercial helped the Glasgow-based firm when it experienced significant problems trying to quickly source a tipper grab to expand its utilities work.

The commercial vehicle specialist, which has a dedicated Ready to Go fleet of more than 300 units, was able to offer immediate delivery of the DAF truck to the exact specifications required by Ellerslie T&C.

Its DAF tipper grab, which is mounted with a Thompson tipper body and Palfinger Epsilon M125L grab crane, is the second vehicle from MV Commercial to join the firm’s fleet, after it took delivery of an identical truck three years ago.

Ellerslie T&C runs the tipper grabs alongside a fleet of three vans.

Its latest truck is compliant with Low Emission Zones (LEZ) in Scotland, allowing the business to operate in the heart of Glasgow and other local city centres.

The vehicle features cameras and sensors plus LED beacon bars to ensure the safety of its drivers, road users and pedestrians.

Thomas McManus, Owner of Ellerslie T&C, said: “We were really impressed with how quickly MV Commercial turned around our order and delivered the LEZ and FORS Gold compliant truck.

“MV’s extensive Ready to Go fleet offering made this possible. It’s of huge benefit to companies like ours who are seeking to quickly expand their fleet or replace vehicles.”
