JOHNSTON SWEEPERS CLEANS UP WITH FIRST RENAULT TRUCKS FACTORY-BUILT SWEEPER CHASSIS
Johnston Sweepers, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of street cleansing vehicles, has taken delivery of the UK’s first Renault Trucks sweeper-packaged Euro-6 chassis. The two 16-tonne Renault Trucks Range D 4x2 R Sweeper 250 E6s join the Johnston’s demo fleet, following a debut at the RWM Show, NEC, Birmingham, on the Johnston Sweeper stand.
Nigel Butler, Commercial Director, Renault Trucks UK, comments: “We are delighted to be working with Johnston to introduce the first Euro-6 Renault truck with a dedicated sweeper pack to the UK market. Our new Renault Trucks Range D chassis with sweeper pack is factory-designed, built and warranted for total peace of mind. Available in both 12 and 16-tonnes, our sweeper chassis options deliver valuable extra payload and productivity for the municipal market.”
Designed in partnership with Johnston’s application engineers for Johnston V Range truck mounted sweepers, the Renault Trucks Range D sweeper-configured chassis option offers Johnston’s customers more choice in a market that has more than doubled since 2011.
Graham Howlett, UK Sales & Marketing Manager, Johnston Sweepers, said: “As the sweeper market continues to enjoy strong growth, the new Renault Trucks factory-built sweeper-packaged chassis options are welcome additions to our range for municipal and construction customers. The Range D’s heavy-duty rear axle with up to 700kg additional payload, together with a fuel tank that carries an additional 40 litres, delivers longer ‘on station’ time for operators. The fully-glazed offside door offers improved visibility of cyclists and traffic on the right for safer operation on congested roads, and the short wheelbase ensures excellent manoeuvrability.”
