Supplied by Renault Trucks Midlands on a full three-year maintenance contract, the new 26-tonner has a 22ft dropside body and drawbar configuration by Fred Smith & Sons Motor Bodies.
The Range C is also fitted with twin fuel tanks for extended operating range, and carries products such as felt, cladding and roofing materials to projects across the UK.
The rear-mounted HMF crane, which can lift one tonne to a maximum height of 25 metres, allows SPV to load materials straight on to the roof.
SPV’s managing director Howard Evans says: “We worked closely with the team at Renault Trucks throughout the build to ensure that the truck not only meets the demands of our operation but also provides home-from-home comforts for the driver, including microwave, television and fridge.”
He adds: “The truck is not only part of SPV’s long-term investment strategy, it is essential for the efficient running of the business.
“It is indispensable for reducing logistics when setting up and clearing the sites we operate nationwide and it also reduces our requirement to hire in plant and equipment.
“Furthermore it offers significant safety benefits on site by reducing the need for manual handing and the associated risks that come alongside this.”
