Range D is first choice for JT Leyland19 June 2017

JT Leyland has taken delivery of its first new Renault vehicle, an 18-tonne Range D18 wide 4x2 curtainsider.

Supplied by dealer JDS Trucks, of Blackburn, on a five-year lease, the new addition’s curtainside body is by TruckCraft Bodies and it has an Anteo tail-lift, and it joins a 20-strong truck fleet.

“We selected the Range D specifically because it is well-liked by – and suited to – our customer’s operations,” says Mike Leyland, owner of the Cumbria-based operator.

“They run them and like the 18-tonners, so we have gone with their recommendation as well as on our own positive experiences with used Renault trucks.”

The Range D specification includes air conditioning, automatic engine cut-off, leather steering wheel, air-suspended driver’s seat with heated cushion and seatback, roof deflector and cruise control.

It also has a Global Cab and fold-down bunk, giving the driver the option to sleep over should they get delayed on a job.

“Our drivers gave us great feedback on the used Renault trucks, but I think they will be even more impressed when they hit the road in the new vehicle,” says Leyland. “It’s got everything they need for a productive and comfortable life on the road.

“In fact we are so happy with the Range D we will soon be adding a Renault Trucks Master van to the fleet, too.”
