Salvatori sincere with love of Iveco
Two 18 tonne Euro IV Iveco Eurocargos have been added to Kent-based haulier Salvatori’s fleet.
The family business currently run a fleet of 60 trucks and the new Iveco’s will be joining its pallet network fleet.
Phil Macey, Transport Manager at Salvatori says: “We have been keen to invest in the next generation of vehicles and we expect the pallet market to grow, so these Eurocargos will allow us to meet the increasing demand and put our first Euro VI vehicles to the test.
“The majority of our pallet network fleet are Ivecos. We always start off by planning to run our vehicles for seven years but the high standard of the Iveco chassis and driveline has meant we can usually keep them for longer. This was certainly a consideration when we bought the Eurocargos.”
The Euro VI Tector engines powering the new Eurocargos offer increased power, torque and durability over the previous EEV generation, combined with enhanced driver comfort through reduced engine noise and vibration. Each 6.7 litre Tector 7 engine produces up to 251hp between 2,050 and 2,500 rev/min and 850Nm of torque between 1,250 and 2,050 rev/min, driven through an automated EuroTronic transmission made by ZF.
