Renault tipper adds real flexibility to DW Luster fleet 06 October 2011
Construction firm DW Lusted has taken delivery of a multi-purpose Renault Lander 430.32 8x4 tipper, equipped with both a Palift hook loader and Palfinger crane.
This truck, supplied by Renault Trucks South, joins DW Lusted's 14-strong fleet of commercial vehicles and provides a wealth of flexibility for the company's operations.
The Lander is this specialist building trade contractor's first dual-equipped truck. The Palift hook loader and 21.9m Palfinger crane were fitted by TH White in Devises.
Commenting on the unusual decision to equip the Renault Lander with both hook and crane, DW Lusted managing director Andy Lusted says: "Fitting the vehicle with both pieces of equipment gives us enormous operational flexibility.
"We have two functions in one truck – tipper or crane – and if we put a bucket on the crane we can use it as a muck lorry as well. From transporting green waste or clearing away fly-tipping, to moving motorway blocks – it does everything."
No surprise then that key to DW Lusted's purchasing decision was product suitability and performance, he says, as well as the relationship the company enjoys with local dealer Renault Trucks South, which will undertake vehicle servicing.
"We already have a Premium, so this is the second Renault truck on our fleet, and the relationship we have with Renault Trucks South was an important factor in our decision to buy the Lander," confirms Lusted. "Driver acceptance of the Lander has also been positive – they find it a great truck to drive."
DW Lusted runs a mixed fleet of HGVs, transit van tippers and panel vans, which work on a variety of operations for leading commercial property management companies and developers.
