Our Roadside Assistance & Recovery Fleet
Here is the image gallery and short description of each of our roadside assistance and recovery vehicles.
The Furness fleet is very varied and every vehicle is chosen for any given incident based on its particular abilities.
Scania R144 460 6×4 is another ‘pulling vehicle’ with plenty of grunt. V10 FCC is similar to T10 FCC in its capability and performance. However, V10 FCC is constructed slightly differently with a top boom designed to give lifting capacity and advantage when dealing with heavy recovery of vehicles in off- road situations. In cases of major incidents V10 FCC and T10 FCC join together to form the ultimate ‘pulling machines’.
Scania 6×2 Accident unit and twin deck, an all around multi functional specialist built exceptional fleet vehicle. This is designed to carry multiple vehicles, primarily working up and down the Motorways and Highways of Cumbria and beyond.
Mercedes Vito is one of our front line vehicles. The van has been designed and built to provide roadside assistance, carrying on board various tools and equipment to provide the help as well as having the capability to recover a vehicle if it cannot be repaired at the roadside. The vehicle is fitted with an RDT “roadside Deployment trailer” and is invaluable in a tight spot
This is the vehicle of choice for any type of major incident. P999 is our designated ‘Accident Unit’ used primarily for accident recovery. This vehicle can be seen attending incidents on behalf of Cumbria Police and the Highways Agency. It is also equipped with a hi-ab and damage- free lifting frame and heavy duty winching equipment and has always risen to every challenge.
