Isuzu Grafters keep Scottish home fires burning

Isuzu GrafterWest Lothian-based Champfleurie Estates has added a third Isuzu Grafter 3.5-tonner to its home distribution fleet to deliver bagged firewood and other timber products. It has been specified with a bespoke dropside body with a larger carrying capacity than its two predecessors which enables the newcomer to accommodate two standard builders’ bags of firewood side-by-side within the body. It also features a rear-mounted 1,200kg-capacity Penny Hydraulics crane.

Champfleurie Estates took delivery of its first Isuzu Grafter back in 2007 and this proved to be ideally suited to the Estate’s requirements. In 2012, a second started work and both featured standard off-the-shelf dropside bodies with Palfinger rear mounted cranes. Apart from its payload credentials and rugged nature, the Grafter is an ideal size for the estate’s delivery operation. It means that the vehicle can fit on a customer’s driveway for unloading directly by crane into customer garages; the ultimate in customer service.

“The first Isuzu was bought as part of a programme established by the estate to convert its waste wood into a sustainable customer service, producing a number of products including wood fuel logs and wood chips. Such has been the success of this business that it has expanded each year to the extent we now required a third Isuzu, with all three trucks working purely on customer deliveries. Our product range has expanded over the years to include other timber options such as garden furniture; everything we sell gets delivered by an Isuzu. The Grafters can literally go wherever a car can go, causing no disruption or traffic impediment when delivering.”
