“ The Grafter is a tough little truck designed to thrive on hard work. Manufactured by Isuzu in Japan, assembled at a plant in Portugal before shipment to the UK

The Range is made up of three basic models. The Grafter N35.150(S) Dropside, the Grafter N35.150(S) Tipper and the Grafter N35.150(T) Tipper with its twin rear wheels. The N35.150(S) Tipper, meanwhile, can manage 1215 kgs on its single rear wheels and the N35.150(T) Tipper will carry 1135kgs The twin rear wheels on the N35.150(T) limit payload capacity but they serve to improve stability and traction for buyers who may need to drive their load across muddy or undulating terrain.

I took the single rear wheel tipper our for a good run after picking it up from Izuzu’s headquarters near Hatfield, Herts. It’s an easy to drive confidence building vehicle which handles very well indeed. The cab area is functional and comfortable- the large foldable heated door mirrors give excellent all round vision. The 3 litre engine provides plenty of power and its certainly fast enough off the mark.”
