Renault Trucks is to make its début at Hillhead 2016, the biggest exhibition of its kind in the world, from 28th-30th June at Hillhead Quarry in Buxton, Derbyshire. The stand (B5) will feature a 32-tonne Range K 8x4 tipper and a Range T460 6x2 44-tonne tractor unit with the newly-launched mini mid-lift option.
From its highly-acclaimed heavy construction range, the 13-litre Range K520 Day-cabbed tipper features a Thompson ‘Loadmaster Lite’ steel body with an off-road defined NG3 chassis, configured carefully to suit a broad range of multi-axle tipper operators, with CLOCS-compliant safety systems. Designed to carry more weight in the toughest environments with exceptional traction and ground clearance, the robust Range K is specially built for heavy duty construction work.
Complementing the Range K on the stand will be a Range T460 6x2 44-tonne tractor with the newly-launched mini mid-lift option which gives a weight reduction of 500kgs when compared to a standard 6x2 tractor. The solution is ideal for tippers or tankers as it allows for a greater payload and also additional chassis space for fitting auxiliary items such as hydraulic kits or blowers.
Nigel Butler, Commercial Director, Renault Trucks UK, says: “We are looking forward to attending this show for the first time since Hillhead is absolutely the right platform for us to welcome both customers and prospects to our stand to demonstrate our range of fuel-efficient, robust and reliable trucks, – like the Range K which is so often cited as the benchmark for heavy construction trucks.”
He continues, “We are also pleased to showcase our newly-launched mini mid-lift option on a Range T tractor. This offers many advantages since the 500kgs weight saving allows for a greater payload or additional chassis space.”
All Renault trucks are now available with Euro-6 Step C-compliant engines, which can reduce fuel costs by up to two per cent whilst increasing the payload by up to 114kgs.
