Each of the C430 trucks has a 32-tonne working weight and comes with an 8x4 axle configuration, allowing it to cope with heavy loads and make light work of rugged terrain in construction, quarrying and mining sites.
The tipping body chosen by this customer is not just an all-purpose container intended for a range of loose materials, but in fact a specialised McErlean tipper which is suitable for use with tar, concrete and other substances with a similar viscosity.
The second truck comes with a full tipping body and a drum for concrete mixing, making it a practical machine to deploy when it is necessary to create fresh concrete on-site or transport it in a usable state.
Chosen Due to Power and Payload CapacitySpokesperson Chris McCloy said that these Renault Range C trucks were chosen because of the combination of power and payload capacity they offer, enabling them to fill a number of important roles within the firm's fleet and step in to take on a number of duties as and when required.
He also praised the economical nature of these trucks, claiming that as well as being able to perform reliably over extended periods, his previous experience of working with Renault trucks was that of cost-effectiveness.
Euro 6 Compliant EnginesAll of the latest models in the Range C line-up come with Euro 6 compliant engines, meaning that they develop plenty of horsepower and torque without doing so at the expense of the environment. And with lower fuel consumption also offered, it is easy to see why businesses are willing to invest in multiple iterations of the same truck.
Robustness is at the core of the design ethos behind these trucks, but the tough-looking exterior belies the level of care which has been taken to make the interior of the cab as comfortable and user-friendly as possible. The ergonomic dash wraps around the driver, making sure all important controls are close to hand, while the steering wheel comes with integrated buttons to manage media playback, speed limiter settings and even hands-free telephone interactivity.
Safety and Security ConsideredSafety and security have been taken into consideration, with a larger windscreen providing great visibility and updated headlights ensuring that even in adverse weather conditions it is possible for the driver to see what is coming. Even the wing mirrors have been tweaked to eliminate blind spots and boost visibility.
An automatic parking brake is included to prevent the truck from rolling backwards when the engine stops. And hill-start assist is also present, along with a lane-departure warning system, emergency autonomous braking and adaptive cruise control to prevent accidents on a site or while out on public roads.
Renault Trucks has poured plenty of cutting-edge technology into the Range C, as well as many of its other modern models. But there are still lots of used Renault trucks out there with similarly impressive features at a lower price point.
