Bulk tipping and hazardous load specialist BJ Waters is running two new Mercedes-Benz Actros tractor units with resilient steel bumpers and raised ride heights to restrict damage when working on rough sites. The operator purchased the latest additions from East Midlands dealer Mertrux Truck & Van. Key to the family firm’s decision to renew its association with the three-pointed star was the fuel-efficient performance of a pair of demonstration units, which also attracted positive driver feedback. The new trucks are Actros 2551 variants with flat-floored, aerodynamic StreamSpace cabs, at 2.5m they are in the wider of the two widths available, and with a12.8- litre, in-line six-cylinder engine that produce 375kW (510hp).
