Aggregates firm builds sturdy fleet with Range C tippers06 November 2018

Welton Aggregates has added two new Range C430 8x4 tippers to its line-up – the latest of six new Renault vehicles to join the fleet in the past year.

Supplied by Thompson Commercials of Grimsby, the Lincolnshire-based operator’s new additions are equipped with aggregate tipping bodies by Broughtons of Barnetby.

The Range Cs are powered by the DTi 11-litre Euro VI engine, which produces 2550Nm of torque, coupled to an Optidriver 12-speed automated manual transmission system.

The spacious cab is a hit with drivers, says Guy Tomlinson, Welton’s transport manager: “8x4 rigid tippers are not usually known for their comfort, but the Range C’s level of refinement is leagues ahead.”

The vehicles also deliver on the road, he adds: “We’ve found them to be extremely sturdy, powerful and reliable, ideal for our application in off-road heavy construction and quarry work.

“In fact we are so pleased that we’ve just placed an order for another vehicle, an 11-litre 6x4 C380 demountable mixer-tipper.”

Other recent additions to the fleet, for use in the concrete operation, include three Range C 8x4 tridems with rear steer and 8m3 McPhee mixer bodies.
