FOURTH GENERATION OF RENAULT TRUCKS EIGHT WHEELERS JOIN FLEETWOOD GRAB
One of Berkshire’s leading grab loader companies, Reading-based Fleetwood Grab Services Limited, has added the fourth generation of Renault Trucks to its 6-strong fleet. Supplied by Renault Trucks South, the 32 tonne Range C440 8×4 with ABBA Predator body and Epsilon M125 Classic crane is an addition to the four generations of 8-wheelers on the fleet, joining a 95 plate Renault Maxter with over 750,000 and four Renault Kerax.
Company owner, Des Fleetwood says: “I’ve always been happy with the build quality of Renault Trucks and, whilst I’ve seen MAN and Scanias come and go in my fleet, I still have a 1995 Renault Maxter workhorse going strong that is used most days and has done over 750,000 miles on the original engine, gearbox and axles. As well as being company owner I also still work on the trucks and can see a definite improvement in the Euro 6 model which feels tougher and the height clearance is good.”
The Range C is used for general grab work for local authorities, utility companies, main contractors, builders, developers, local tradesmen and the general public across Berkshire and the surrounding areas.
All four generations of Renault trucks are going strong, which Des Fleetwood puts down to the excellent relationship and service support they received from Renault Trucks South. He says: “We are just up the road from them, and I personally know the staff and they know my business so they always get the vehicle back on the road as quickly as possible.”
