Sanders grow Cheetah fleet
Sanders Coaches of Holt now has eight Plaxton Cheetahs in its fleet with two recently being delivered. The new additions feature 29 Tourismo seats, a dash mounted entertainment package and a Thermo-King air conditioning unit. The body is mounted on a Mercedes-Benz Vario 0.816D 8.5m chassis, fitted with a 156bhp OM904LA Euro5 engine matched to a six-speed manual transmission.
Director Charles Sanders finds the Cheetah ideal for the company’s work with smaller groups, ‘In rural Norfolk, we have a lot of calls from smaller groups for this size vehicle and it suits the local area where not everywhere is accessible to larger vehicles. We are keen to stay with the Cheetah, so took advantage of getting these whilst they were available. We know the product, it’s durable, reliable and holds its resale value. If we need any bits for them, there are no problems.’
Plaxton coach Sales of Anston supplied the Cheetahs.
