T520 High 6x2 pusher tractor unit additions fuelled by service excellence and driver appeal

FAMILY-run Weaver Haulage Ltd have added three T520 High 6x2 pusher tractor units to their fleet. Supplied by Allports Group, the new vehicles with Gardner Denver blower equipment, are working on bulk powder across the Midlands and the south of England for cement clients.

The diligence and commitment to excellence by Allports Group sales manager Jamie Watton and service manager Chris Plant, along with their respective teams, combined with competitive pricing and driver appeal, were key influencers in concluding the deal.

 

Weaver Haulage director Bradley Harvey explained why the Midlands-based dealer is instrumental to his business’ success: ‘Since the pandemic, our work has doubled and the quick turnaround from the service team is crucial in running a slick operation. Although we have our own three-bay workshop that we use for older vehicles, the team at Allports is maintaining the latest additions.

‘From initial discussions to compiling a bespoke vehicle specification, all the way through to delivery, Jamie Watton has been first class and Chris at Allports in Stoke has been vital in making the service side work for us; he just gets it.’

The T520 Highs are powered by Renault Trucks’ 13-litre engine producing a maximum 2,550Nm of torque from 990 rev/min to 1,400 rev/min. The vehicles feature a striking metallic black paint, complete with matching exhaust heat shield, door mirror shell, and bumper corners, centre and steps. They are also fitted with additional front and rear lights, as well as Spot-On light bars and roof-mounted twin air horns.

Weaver Haulage have also specified Optivision map-based gear-shift strategy, which anticipates topography for fuel economy, as well as centralized data storage, and ECO Cruise control with Optiroll.

To further enhance the vehicles striking looks, they have been specified with fixed roof and side deflectors, which also assist with fuel savings for their occasional refrigeration work.

Weaver Haulage’s trucks are on the road five to six days a week, making driver appeal a crucial factor in the new vehicle selection. The driver-led specification includes microwave, fridge, luxury seats, air-conditioning, and additional back cab lockers to maximize storage.

‘Ensuring driver satisfaction is also essential for our operation’s success,’ explained Mr Harvey. ‘Our drivers appreciate the layout of the new truck, praising the cab’s size and spaciousness. The adjustable steering wheel position has been well received, and the extra back lockers offer ample storage for extended trips.

‘We are delighted with the new vehicles and service received, and we look forward to working with both Allports and Renault Trucks as we expand our fleet in the future.’
