Lanes invests in Scania and Irizar
Scania (Great Britain) Limited has recently delivered a 12.2-metre overall length Irizar PB to Lanes Coaches of Hemel Hempstead for use on its touring, excursions and general private hire operations.
Based on a Scania K340EB 4x2 chassis, the vehicle has a 340 horsepower Euro 5 Scania engine and ZF six-speed fully-automatic transmission. The 49-seater coach features full air-conditioning, a DVD with two monitors, and a centre-mounted toilet.
Commenting on the purchase, the proprietor Graham Clarke said, "This is the first new coach we have acquired in 25 years of trading. The quality of the Scania product together with the repair and maintenance package offered through Scania (Great Britain) Limited's South Mimms depot have been major influences in our decision making process".
