May 9, 2014: Trade Van Driver, one of the U.K's top van magazines for small business users, has announced that the Isuzu Grafter N35.150 dropside/tipper truck has won the ‘Best Builder’s Truck’ Award for 2014, making it a hat-trick of wins for the Grafter over the last three years.

According to the judges; “It's a triple crown for the Isuzu Grafter. For the third year in succession, the judges have given this hard-working vehicle their praise. Built like a truck, but with dimensions that really suit the outdoor trades, the Isuzu Grafter is well liked and well-respected as a vehicle that can take the knocks in use and deliver excellent reliability.”

At a handover ceremony held on the Isuzu Truck stand at the recent CV Show at the NEC, ITUK’s Managing Director Peter Murphy received the award from Trade Van Driver’s editor Matthew Eiseneggar.

Now in their third year, the TVD Awards aim to give recognition to the manufacturers who, in the opinion of the judges, offer the very best to retail van buyers. In choosing the winners for each category, the entrants are not only judged by journalists from the publication, but also by a panel of readers who use light commercial vehicles as part of their businesses.

“For the Grafter to be recognised for a third consecutive year as the best in its class is tremendous news for us. The vehicle is the workhorse of many businesses involved in the construction and landscaping industries. To be recognised by its peers is further testament to the overall popularity of the vehicle,” commented Keith Child, marketing director at Isuzu Truck.
