New Renault trucks for EasyMix Concrete

South East-based EasyMix Concrete have added two Renault Premium Lander 270.18 4x2 chassis cabs fitted with a midlift axle, giving a 6x2 configuration, and two Renault Kerax 380.32 8x4s to their 18-strong mixed fleet, with a further two Kerax units on order from Renault Trucks Chiltern.

An important factor in the company’s purchase decision was the chassis specification of the Kerax and Lander, and the high level of technical support from Renault Trucks UK, which ensured the optimum weight distribution for the Roadmaster concrete mixer bodies. 

The new Renault trucks will join 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 10m3, while the Landers’ smaller body is suitable for tight access site supply around London and other urban areas.  All bodywork has been 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 said: ‘We’re really impressed with the Renault trucks’ chassis spec and the technical team at Renault Trucks UK, who have delivered the best results for mounting the Roadmaster body of all manufacturers so far.  

‘The span of the Kerax is spot on as 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 44-tonne gwv offers 4 tonnes over some other marques, which is a real insurance policy if it rains all night and saturates the aggregates.  

‘Our new 6x2 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 and the new automatic gearbox has gone down well.’
