We’ve experienced the Iveco Daily ourselves on a number of occasions and always seem to walk away content.
We’re not the only ones who reckon it’s one of the best large vans getting around.
West Australian food business Little Eeden Farm also have plenty of good things to say about the Daily.
The business produces honey and also breeds livestock, and while you’re more likely to find the sweet nectar in the rear of the businesses Iveco Daily 35S than a cow, owner Arno Van Eeden reckons the Iveco is up for just about anything.
“The van is amazing, we’re very happy with it,”
“We considered buying an enclosed trailer to tow behind the car but after giving it more thought, the inconvenience of parking it meant it wasn’t very practical.
“We then looked very closely at most of the vans in the market and liked the Daily the best.
“It’s easy to drive, has a lot of power and torque for what we need and is simple to load and unload.”
Based about an hour and a half north of Perth, the business is co-owned and managed by Arno’s wife, Rene, with the pair using the Daily to deliver goods to stockists and to attend food shows around the region.
But the Iveco Daily’s most testing regular task is helping the business access 300 beehives that are spread far and wide.
Arno, who is a diesel mechanic by trade, says the 126hp/320Nm 2.3 litre turbo-diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission get them everywhere they need to go with ease.
But he tells us he’s particularly impressed by the Daily’s 40,000 kilometres oil change intervals.
“Having oil change intervals of 40,000 kilometres is virtually unheard of!”
