Nationwide business, Encon has ordered eight new DAF trucks from Fraikin, all fitted with curtainsiders by the Bevan Group. Some of the trucks are already on the road and the others are currently under build and will be on the streets in the next few months.
The trucks were bought on contract hire and the technical bods at Fraikin and Bevan helped out the customer in designing the bodies. Extras such as a rear-mounted forklift help the drivers in their deliveries of building products. Fitted with auto boxes, the bodies have flush bulkheads and extras to stop problems with loads going over. Extra safety comes from a ladder to help the driver get onto any part of the curtainsider body and a harness when they are working at height.
