Guest Truck and Van nomination Thermal Road Repairs shortlisted for the Iveco Daily Mission Awards 2023 Q2 Round-up: Grounds Maintenance & Forestry
Thermal Road Repairs continues to grow its 29-strong fleet of IVECO Dailys (72C18HA8) with a specification that helps overcome its challenging work.
Thanks to the Daily’s rugged chassis, these 7.2-tonne vehicles can carry all of the equipment needed; including an asphalt heater, bitumen sprayer, warming unit, and hot box without the need for a larger truck. This benefits in terms of TCO, but also environmentally with reduced CO2 emissions from a smaller vehicle. Impressively, Thermal Road Repairs fabricates its own bodywork in-house.
Balancing performance and economy is an F1C 3.0-litre diesel engine with 180hp mated to an eight-speed Hi-Matic automatic transmission, which reduces clutch wear and provides a smooth gearchange. In addition to their ability to transport equipment, these vehicles also need to tow additional machinery to worksites.
The Daily’s turning circle is essential for the Thermal Road Repair fleet. Its unrivalled manoeuvrability means these vehicles are optimally positioned to deal with potholes with ease.
Safety is paramount and reflected in the specification of these IVECO Dailys. A reversing camera and alarm help protect the workforce around the vehicle, while light beacons alert road users to the ongoing work.
Judges were impressed with the innovative use of these Daily’s tough chassis and the capabilities packed into each vehicle. High levels of corporate responsibility are evident in this fleet’s safety measures.
