Light weighting

A new lightweight aluminium body system from aalco has been specifically designed and built for the landscaping market.
The brief to body builder BLS from customer John O’Connor, was to provide a vehicle which could transport 3 men, a Hayter Lawn Tractor and all the necessary groundsman’s tools to sites around the Home Counties.
Steven Searle of BLS turned to aalco and used their lightweight body system to build a suitable vehicle on a Vauxhall Movano chassis cab.
Since entering service Simon Redhead from John O’Connor reports that they are delighted with the performance of the vehicle and the significant reduction in environmental impact that the new vehicle has brought.
”Since making its exhibition debut at the CV Show, there has been significant interest in the aalco body system from local authority’s agricultural contractors and fleet operators alike.
Clive Bush, Sales Development Director for aalco comments;
“The Aalco stock of Road Transport Industry products is expanding rapidly, making us the fastest growing supplier in this sector. Environmental issues are encouraging customers to make ‘sustainability’ choices when selecting products and aluminium has a significant part to play in this arena. Light weighting has become a byword in the road transport sector
