Ashley Travel takes Ecolife option
Sheffield-based Ashley Travel decided on the fully-automatic ZF Ecolife gearbox option for the i6 Integral that has just joined its fleet.
The 12.9-metre 57-seat touring coach has Irizar UK’s standard specification, which includes a toilet, two-screen DVD system, reversing horn and camera, seat-back tables and carpeting but also has a 240V inverter and CCTV fitted.
The latest ZF Ecolife gearbox chosen for Ashley Travel’s coach now has an increased torque range, so is compatible with all bar one of the current DAF MX-series engine options. Alternatively, operators can have the acclaimed ZF AS-Tronic autoshift gearbox.
Nor is the coach the only new addition Ashley Travel expects this year. Ashley Powell, daughter of Director Andy Powell, is in training for her PCV driving test, and is hoping to get behind the wheel this summer… perhaps aboard the new Irizar i6.
Ashley Travel, based in Killamarsh, runs its own day excursion programme, tours in conjunction with Nova Tours of Chesterfield, and private hire.
