South Wales builders’ merchant Undy Building & Timber Supplies looked no further than another Mercedes- Benz Atego from Euro Commercials, when it needed a new delivery truck – thanks to the proven performance of its long-running predecessor.
The new truck replaced a previous Atego supplied by the same dealer a full 20 years ago. Still going strong with a little over 250,000 km on the clock, it was snapped up by a buyer in Cardiff.
A 1321 model, the latest addition to the fleet is powered by a 155kW (210hp) 5.1-litre engine and has a ClassicSpace S day cab. The chassis is equipped with an alloy tipper by Neath Bodybuilders, who also fitted a Hiab X-Duo 078 loader crane with Kinshofer grab, rated at 7.4 tonne/metres and with a maximum outreach of 11.6 m.
