JL Priestley bulks up with five new Renault vehicles11 April 2016

JL Priestley Bulk Services has expanded its fleet with five new Renault vehicles – three 44-tonne Range T tractors and two 32-tonne Range C 8x4s.

Supplied by dealer Thompson Commercials (Boston), the Lincolnshire-based operator’s new additions come with a four-year full R&M contract.

The Range Cs feature high roof sleeper cabs and are fitted with an Aliweld fixed high-side monocoque tipping body with hydraulic-operated tailboard, purpose-designed to match JL Priestley’s recycling operations.

Good experience with the dealer was a key factor, says transport manager Paul Clark, as were truck features and performance. The Range T, he says, was a logical progression from its existing Renault Premiums.

Plus, he says: “We found the Range C’s cab layout to be excellent and with all the strength and protection around it, coupled with the vehicle’s impressive payload of 19860kg, it’s an excellent choice for our operation.

He adds: “Our drivers love them, too, and the icing on the cake is that we are getting an initial mpg increase of 0.4% and it’s still very early days.”
