RENAULT TRUCKS IS CONCRETE FAVOURITE WITH F P McCANN
F P McCANN IS ADDING TWO FURTHER RANGE Cs TO ITS LINE-UP
Following a successful run of Renault Trucks in its fleet, the UK’s market leader in the manufacture, supply and delivery of precast concrete solutions, F P McCann, is adding two further Range Cs to its line-up. The first 32-tonne Range C430 8x4, supplied by Renault Trucks’ approved dealer, Diamond Trucks, is fitted with a tar specification tipping body by McErlean Trailers; the second has a McErlean Trailers demount system and tipping body, and mixer drum by Hymix.
The Range C’s ruggedness, driver comfort, excellent payload, pulling power and low fuel consumption were key factors in the new vehicle selection.
“We’ve been running Kerax since 2006, which have served us well in terms of maintenance and fuel consumption and a couple of Range Cs for a year,” explains Chris McCloy, Regional Quarry and Transport Manager. “The obstacle clearance capacity is impressive which makes the Range C ideal for our quarry and construction site applications. The drivers are extremely happy with the handling and performance too. The C430 has plenty of power for every day work, including hauling blacktop and muck shifting, as well as the capacity to tow our full range of trailers and plant, which makes them a great all-round addition to our fleet. Fuel efficiency is also crucial and the new Range C is performing consistently well, especially compared to the existing fleet.”
He concludes: “Aftersales service is such an important factor in choosing which trucks to buy. Our overall relationship with Renault Trucks has been a good one and it is something that we will continue to build on with Diamond Trucks, who have provided us with an excellent package that included a trade-in deal and four-year warranty. The fact that we have an additional Range C on order speaks volumes about the positive relationship between FP McCann and Renault Trucks.”
Iain Latimer, Diamond Trucks, comments on the deal: “F P McCann and Renault Trucks have been working in partnership for many years, so I am delighted that they have once again turned to us for their new vehicle requirements. The Range C is a fantastic work-horse and provides excellent drivability and large ground clearance for covering all terrain. It’s great to see that it is working so well in F P McCann’s busy operation.”
