140,400 yard movements per annum

The Knights of Old Group have invested in a new Terberg YT 182 yard tractor. The shunter is the second Terberg to join the fleet and will operate between the group’s Kettering depots 1,2 and 3 where it is anticipated to make 140,400 movements per annum. The existing Terberg has been relocated to Plant 4 Kettering where it’s number of daily movements and travelling distances will significantly reduce.

Terberg were selected as a manufacturer, as the existing Knights of Old Group Terberg unit, proved ideal for yard operations. The YT182 was specifically selected as it offers excellent visibility, additional safety features and a lifting fifth wheel. The lifting fifth wheel allows trailers to be shunted without raising and lowering the landing legs, saving time and potentially increasing its anticipated movements.

Scott Mason, Knights of Old Group’s Fleet Manager said: "Terberg is a brand which has served us consistently over the years as the Knights of Old Groups fleet has expanded. The Cummins QSB6.7-190 Stage 4 engine is powerful, dependable and the after treatment system reducing NOX and particulates helps us further improve our environmental performance.”

The Terberg yard tractor is an excellent choice for the group, where long-term reliability working in a busy depot is key to the performance of the supply chain.
