Atkins URB822

Atkinson built lorries to last and used tried and tested components like Gardner oil engines, David Brown gearboxes and Eaton axles in a robust ladder frame chassis. They were plodders, you’d be lucky to get 40mph maximum from an Atki but they and many lorries like them were the mainstay of many a long-distance haulier’s fleet in the pre-motorway age. Atkins Heavy Haulage of Findern Derbyshire was one such company and they gave their lorries names, URB822 was named “Findern Pride”.
