Cheetahs for Highland Experience
Eight Plaxton Cheetahs based on the 0.816D 8.5m Mercedes-Benz Vario chassis have joined the fleet of Edinburgh based Highland Experience Tours. They each feature 29 reclining seats, an entertainment package and a roof mounted Thermo-King air conditioning unit. One of the vehicles is also equipped with a multi lingual commentary system. Their power comes from 156bhp OM904LA SCR Euro5 engines. Six vehicles based in Edinburgh are equipped with six-speed manual transmissions, with automatic gearboxes being specified for a pair stationed in Inverness.
Operations Manager, Stuart McCaw, said, ‘We are delighted with them and are getting excellent feedback from our customers and staff. The Cheetah represents British manufacturing at its best and they come with a good after sales and support package.’
Six of the Highland Experience Tours’ Plaxton Cheetahs were supplied by Plaxton Coach Sales at Anston, the remaining two automatics by Dawsonrentals.
