RENAULT TRUCKS RANGE K CARRIES 11% MORE WEIGHT FOR WHITE HARE AGGREGATES

“The Renault Range K offers excellent strength and ground clearance, which are essential for working on site”.

Exact mix concrete specialists, White Hare Aggregates Ltd, has taken delivery of four Renault Trucks Range K460 8x4 rigids, each equipped with Renault blue LED high bar spots.  Supplied by Renault Trucks distributor, Renault Trucks Essex, the Range Ks are mounted with Bay Lynx Newman 12 volumetric mixers with bodywork undertaken by White Hare Aggregates’ own in-house bodyshop.  The Range Ks replace older vehicles on the company’s 12-strong fleet, with the Renault truck’s strength, ground clearance and design weight all key factors in White Hare Aggregates’ vehicle selection.

The Range Ks, which went on the road in April, work mainly across south Essex and London, delivering concrete batching services to site for construction firms, utilities and local authorities. Commenting on the decision to bring the company’s first Euro 6 trucks onto its fleet, White Hare Aggregates’ Managing Director, Lee Whitehair, says: “The Renault Range K offers excellent strength and ground clearance, which are essential for working on site, together with its uprated springs and suspension.  Its design weight means we can carry an extra cubic tonne, increasing our capacity from 9 cubic metres up to 10 cubic metres - and it all adds up, especially with business going from strength to strength.”

The high capacity cement tank provides White Hare Aggregates the flexibility to deliver larger volumes or to undertake multiple drops to smaller sites.

Peter Thirkettle, Renault Trucks Essex, says: “White Hare Aggregates is a very well respected fleet with a striking on-road presence, so we are delighted to see the Range Ks in their distinctive livery.”

White Hare Aggregates is a family-run business based in Basildon, the first and only volumetric mixer company in Essex to hold a BSi Kitemark for its concrete.  Operating a mixed fleet of volumetric mixers, carrying volumes from six cubic metres up to 11 cubic meters, White Hare Aggregates is able to provide batch concrete services on site for contracts of all requirements, from one cubic metres upwards.  White Hare Aggregates represents Bay Lynx Volumetric Mixers in the South of England.
