Specialist volumetric concrete delivery company, EasyMix Concrete, has added two Renault Premium Lander 270.18 4×2 chassis cabs fitted with a midlift axle, giving a 6X2 configuration, and 2 Renault Kerax 380.32 8x4s to its 18-strong mixed fleet, with a further two Kerax on order from Renault Trucks Chiltern. An important factor in EasyMix Concrete’s purchase decision was the chassis specification of the Kerax and Lander and the first rate technical support from Renault Trucks UK which ensured the optimum weight distribution for the Roadmaster Concrete Mixer bodies.
The new Renault trucks will join Knebworth-based EasyMix Concrete’s fast growing ‘concrete on tap’ operation, delivering concrete and floor screed to the building trade across the South East. The Kerax will undertake larger heavy duty applications, carrying up to 10 cubic metres, while the Landers’ smaller body is ideal for tight access site supply around London and other urban areas. All bodywork is undertaken by sister company, Roadmaster Concrete Mixers Europe Ltd, based in Welwyn-Garden-City.
Commenting on his decision to add six new Renault trucks to EasyMix Concrete’s fleet, Managing Director Andrew Collins, says: “We’re really impressed with the Renault trucks’ chassis spec and the technical team at Renault Trucks UK, which has delivered the best results for mounting the Roadmaster body of all manufacturers so far. The span of the Kerax is spot on, the cement bin sits well on the wheelbase in the centre of the fourth axle. On site, the height of the chassis gives us excellent ground clearance and the 44t GVW offers 4t over some other marques, which is a real insurance policy if it rains all night and saturates the aggregate. Our new 6×2 Landers are some of the first in the UK fitted with a midlift axle and are ideal for our specialist vehicle application. Driver feedback is good, they like the truck and the new automatic gearbox has gone down well.”
