Free Flow Concrete rates Renault Kerax reliability 11 February 2013

Ready mix concrete supplier Free Flow Concrete has taken delivery of its first Renault truck: a Kerax 430.32 8x4, with the Optidriver+ automated transmission.

The Euro 5 EEV (enhanced environmentally friendly vehicle) truck was supplied through Renault Trucks Essex and has been fitted with a Reimer R950 mobile batching plant, supplied and fitted by Mastercrete.

"Historically, we have always had Scanias but we were offered the chance to trial a Renault Kerax tipper," says Simon Lang, Free Flow Concrete's owner.

"I was extremely impressed with the demo vehicle. The Kerax was great to drive: the drivetrain is smooth and the Optidriver+ gearbox is very efficient," he adds.

For Lang, reliability is key. "We have had problems in the past with the reliability of trucks on our fleet so we were attracted to the Kerax's reputation for reliability, as well as Renault's service support," he says.
