New Scania R 540 8x4 Tipper Ready To Work For Father & Daughter Transport

Joe and Emma Stevens are Joint Managing Directors of the aptly-named Father & Daughter Transport and also fans of Scania trucks. The firm recently added a new Scania R 540 8x4 tipper to fulfill a roadstone and tarmacadam delivery contract with a local construction materials supplier, and this truck will replace an older Scania model driven by Emma Stevens.


“I've been around trucks all my life, my dad has always been a Scania man and I've driven them too, so Scania was always going to be in the frame for me," Emma says. "That said, I have driven other trucks as well, but nothing comes close to Scania, which is why I went for the R 540.”


Service Just Down The Road

Scania's Shepton Mallet depot, which is just five minutes away from the quarry where Father & Daughter Transport regularly works, supplied the 32-tonne R 540 8x4 truck and will also maintain it. The new truck joins a Scania G 450 8x4 tipper Father & Daughter Transport purchased in 2018.


“I cannot fault their service; from reception to parts and to the technicians they're just excellent,” says Emma. “Their sales executive, Paul Faramus, is always really helpful, and the technicians are the unsung heroes who don’t get enough credit—Andy Hamann being one of them; his outlook and attitude within Scania is exceptional."


More Scania R-Series Details

Scania’s R-series trucks are available with day or sleeper cabs as 4x2 to 10x4/6 tractor units or rigids. Engine options include 9-,13-, and 16-litre units that produce between 280 and 730 horsepower (209 and 544 kilowatts) and from 1,350 to 3,700 newton-metres (996 to 2,729 pounds-foot) of torque. They are also available with a range-change (8- or 8+1-speed), range-splitter (12- or 12+2-speed), or Opticruise gearbox. Rounding out the powertrain are single and tandem drive axles.
