RENAULT TRUCKS’ RANGE K MEETS XACT STANDARDS
In a first for Renault Trucks, Xact 21 Mixers Ltd, manufacturers of the only British modular volumetric concrete mixer, has chosen the Range K as its new chassis of choice. The 44-tonne Range K460 P8x4 Rs, supplied by Renault Trucks’ approved dealer JDS Trucks Limited, are a perfect partner for Xact’s volumetric mixer.
Xact 21 Mixers selected the Renault Trucks Range K for its extreme durability, load capacity, competitive deal and excellent dealer support. The vehicles are in the process of gaining VCA and Whole Europe Type Approvals (WETA), and the bodies have been through some 50 customer-led design changes with the aim of building the ultimate customer-focused concrete mixer.
Xact’s owner Ronald Jackson explains why he opted for Renault Trucks: “We have worked in partnership with Renault Trucks across Europe to gain WETA, which we expect to achieve in 2 to 3 months’ time. The Range K is ideal for Xact equipment; it’s efficient, rugged and powerful, has an excellent chassis and is a great workhorse. You can throw anything at them and they will perform. It’s strong enough for our equipment and users’ concrete production needs. The Range K also has a better design weight that far exceeds others on the market and this, together with excellent service through JDS Trucks, clinched the deal.”
The new vehicles are suitable for use on residential and commercial construction sites with any type of concrete and the first two mixers have been delivered to DK Concrete in Corby to replace their existing fleet.
Ronald continues: “The market is buoyant again and we are seeing a strong upsurge. Businesses are investing in quality, cost-effective equipment at ‘Factory Gate Prices’. Our models focus on the customer’s operating and servicing needs and are entirely about making their life easier and dramatically reducing downtime.”
