Renault Trucks returns to Hall M at Tip-ex/Tank-Ex 2017 in Harrogate next month (June 1-3) with three robust trucks from its highly-acclaimed construction range that underlines the manufacturer’s position as the customer cost champion.

The first two vehicles are 32-tonne 8x4 tippers - a Tarmac-spec 13-litre C520 and an 11-litre C430 Tridem with steering axle offering optimum manoeuvrability. Both trucks are equipped with PPG insulated aluminium aggregate bodies, carefully configured to suit a wide cross-section of multi-axle tipper operations.

For operators looking for the manoeuvrability of a six-wheeler with the load capacity of an eight-wheeler, the Range C Tridem with factory-fitted extra axle adaption provides an effective solution. As well as improved site access, the manoeuvrability advantage of the Tridem’s rear-lifting axle keeps the truck closer to the kerb than a traditional 8x4 when turning left, which can help reduce the high-risk gap for cyclists.

The third vehicle on the Renault Trucks stand is a lightweight T460 lightweight 44-tonne 11-litre 6x2 tractor unit with mini mid-lift (MML) suitable for aggregate or liquid applications featuring a factory-fitted PTO and tipping equipment.  The Range T MML derivative, being up to half a tonne lighter than the standard 6x2 mid-lift, offers significant payload advantages for operators.

Nigel Butler, Commercial Director, Renault Trucks UK, says: “With our unrivalled reputation for robust trucks designed for exceptional mobility in demanding environments and with optimised payload for maximum profitability, Renault Trucks is the UK construction industry’s customer cost champion.  We offer a fully-integrated service for all sectors of the business from brick and block, aggregate delivery to quarrying, for both on and off-road applications.  Tip-Ex/Tank-Ex 2017 is the ideal opportunity for operators to discover more about our fuel-efficient trucks and the first class service support from our dealer network.”

All Renault trucks are available with Euro-6 Step C-compliant engines, which can deliver reduced fuel costs of up to 2 per cent whist increasing payloads by up to 114 kgs.

Visitors to the Renault Trucks stand will also be invited to join in the company’s campaign entitled, #proudprofessionals.

Nigel Butler continues: “Our transport industry is well-regulated and highly professional, yet public perception can all too often be negative.  That’s why we want to recognise and shine a light on everyone who works in transport and logistics, from technicians to truck drivers to change public perception and generate a sense of pride and self-belief in every individual with our #proudprofessionals initiative.”
