Several new additions to the Leiths fleet have been showcased across the Nation this year.
The first of four new Feldbinder Powder Tank Trailers made it on to the manufacturers’ stand on the Majestic Lawns in Harrogate at the Tip-Ex/Tank-Ex show in June. This was no mean feat for Feldbinder, as the site is in the centre of the historic spa town in an ornamental park built in 1899!
In August, our latest DAF XF530 150 tonne heavy haulage Tractor Unit, and Renault C430 with Liebherr 8m³ Concrete Mixer, were both on stands at the Black Isle show in Inverness-shire.
Further to these manufacturer arranged displays, two of our Tractor Units were displayed at Truckfest. Ft William driver, Ian Strang, took his Volvo, and Distribution Supervisor, Carolyn McKinnon, took a Mercedes along to show at the 2 day event held at the Royal Highland Centre in Edinburgh at the beginning of August. This was the first time that we have had vehicles on display there, and both said that, despite the hard work, they enjoyed showing off the trucks. The vehicles generated a lot of interest over the weekend, with members of the public, staff and drivers from other businesses stopping to chat with Carolyn and Ian. Despite their efforts washing and polishing the trucks inside and out, they didn’t win any prizes, but undeterred, they hope to go back next year to fly the Leiths flag!
